Re: Potential Buyer questions

Re: Ev in extreme heat

Now that it is cooling down it charged last night to 77, level 2. My wife's Volt charged to 60, the last month or so it's been in the low 50's. When I got it last year on Black Friday it was charging up to 94, and cruising about 40mph the upper end of GOM was 117! So, temps and cruising speed return...

Re: Best way to charge for battery life

The charge gets low, I plug in at night and drive away in the morning. A few days later the charge is low, I plug it in at night and drive away in the morning. No stress. It charges, I use the charge...rinse and repeat. Don't over think it. You'll drive yourself nuts. Get in and go, wave as you pass...

Re: Ev in extreme heat

I'm in Phoenix. I did the recall for the battery a few months ago. Before doing so I was charging 2-3 times a week and always getting over 90 miles. Since the "fix" the most it's charged to is 75, last charge 2 days ago was 69 and I plugged in at 18. Now, it's in the 100's and the garage is hot and ...

Re: Battery degredation

A little off topic perhaps...I had been charging to 92-94 miles at 8 ohms on my home EVSE. Last week I checked to see if there were any outstanding recalls on my car and come to find out the Powertrain Control Module 2 needed reprogramming to correct the range estimation. So, the last 2 charges nett...

Re: 2014 Spark EV FS in the Chicago area

I live in AZ and will renew plates in November. On my 2017 Volt and 1998 Land Rover Discovery 1 the state offers a 2 year option. Are you saying with an EV the state offers a 5 year option? I might do that. And, if I read correctly, the plates are much cheaper than ICE. What did you pay for a 5 year...

Re: Aftermarket speakers?
