Re: Jack points and tire rotation

No rotation on original 2015 tires. New OEM tires installed on front at 21k miles, still on original rears... You guys must abuse tires... We do maintain the cars with tire balancing and alignment checked yearly.

Re: 12 fast charges and 690 miles driven in 24 hours

Nice day trip - I've been wanting to take our 2015 from Raleigh to Winston-Salem, but have yet to try it out...

Re: 2051 Spark EV body paint are kind of thin.

Odd... Our 2015 has fading paint as well on the rear wing thingy...

But, still seeing ~80 miles of range daily on the GOM at 26k miles, so we got that going for us. Still staying on the L1 Home / L2 office plug nipple daily to full SOC.

Re: 14 months of ownership starting to regret Owning a sparkev

Two L2 charging spots located inside gated business facility, no other EVs on site... Car also has hanger tag with cell number listed, plus Security guards know how to reach me in extremely rare instance that another EV comes to town... No calls in 3+ years . And I'm the guy that does practice prope...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

I haven't checked our battery capacity yet, but we're still seeing 80-85 miles of range avg on GOM, on our 2015 Spark EV, and we're at 25k miles today.

Always plugged in to Level 1 at home, Level 2 at office for ~8 hrs/day, and 14 DCFC full charges since we bought the car.

Still have our 2015 Spark EV, now with 25k miles & still getting minimum 85 miles of range...

Stays plugged in all the time when parked, typically Level 1 home & daily 8-9 hours on Level 2 at office. Used DCFC 14x since car purchased in 2016.

Re: GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

I'm just getting started with checking battery capacity after 3+ years & it's merely curiosity for me.

I feel pretty confident that GM Engineers designed the packs to handle 100% charge at each 'fill-up' - Time will tell!

Re: GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

Last night, I charged our 2015 Spark EV 2 LT at an EVGO station, and charged to 100%, with GOM showing 77 miles of range (50-degree temps last night). Car has been in our hands since late 2016, when we purchased it as a 178 mile demo unit. This is only the ninth time using L3/DC charging since we've...

Re: Front tire wear

We changed the front tires (factory Bridgestone Ecopias) on our 2015 Spark EV at ~ 19k miles in August 2019 with another set of same tires when we had alignment checked. Car now has 23k miles & still on good tread / condition rear factory installed tires. Bought the car with 178 miles on it - Bryan ...
