Re: anybody have the "service vehicle soon light" come on?

Had the Service Vehicle Soon light issue 2 days ago - came on after stopping DCFC using the key fob (somewhere between 60-80% charged). Cleared itself overnight (not plugged, just parked in driveway). Didn't think to pull the codes, but I'm guessing something about interrupting the handshake between...

Sounds cool!

Photobucket isn't sharing your photos to the BBS though... FYI.

Re: Help for a prospective owner...?

What scrambler said.... :D It shouldn't be a problem charging from your garage outlet with the charger alone. I'd add that if you can find a Spark EV with the Level 3 charging option (DCFC/Fast Charging) that would make access around the Tahoe region even that much easier, but probably not strictly ...

Re: Replacement Battery Cost

That's very hard to guess. The main factors will be falling cost of battery technology which will (almost certainly) be much cheaper than today. See this chart at Business Insider for an example of how rapidly the technology is changing and costs dropping: http://www.businessinsider.com/tesla-electr...

Re: Does charging the car also keep the 12v battery topped o

The Manual specifies to keep the car plugged in for (up to) 4 weeks of storage, so presumably the circuitry keeps the 12v optimal while plugged in.

Re: Tire advice

(anybody know where I can get the 2015 and 2016 manuals on .pdf, not just the driver's introduction guides?) Since the 2015 and 2016 models are identical, possibly save paint colors and trim, they probably didn't update the manual for 2016: http://www.chevrolet.com/owners/chevy-manuals.html Clickin...

Re: Planning a trip

Anyone try travelling from L.A. area to Bakersfield? Grapevine looks like a real challenge. Lack of DCFC makes it pretty 'remote'. You could investigate going through Lancaster and Mojave [58] but that's several hours of Level 2 charging with the infrastructure available. Maybe stop to take in a (l...

Any more tips for the community, from your wealth of Spark EV modding experience, Bryce? The long anticipated rear-seat delete instructions, perhaps?

Thanks for sharing your story.
