Re: Me and the Spark's dad at the Smithsonian

It is so heartbreaking that those beloved cars were just smashed after the owner's lease ended. Shame on GM!

Re: Would Like Advice About Driving in "L"

Personally, I don't like the feel of L at all. To me, it makes a fun, sporty car feel sluggish. I also like the coasting I can do in D. L starts slowing the car down as soon as I take my foot off the accelerator which means I have to then accelerate to keep the car going at an even speed.

Re: Have you had the hood latch recall performed?

Mine's done. I like to be able to say that I've kept the car totally up-to-date on all recalls should I ever sell it.

Re: Blue Tooth Sync

I ran across a similar problem. I have an iPhone but also have an iPod Shuffle that I wanted to keep in the car at all times for language lessons. I was hoping to flip back and forth on Bluetooth, but that didn't seem to work. I had to plug the iPod in with a USB cord and then use Bluetooth for the ...

Re: Bluetooth woes

I use an iPhone 5. I don't use Bluetooth often on other devices so I don't know how my connection speed compares, but I did used to have connectivity issues with the Spark. I was also having other non car related issues on my phone such as messages not coming through. I found if I totally shut down ...

Re: Someone be so kind as to tell me the length of cargo are

With the backseat down, it's about 46" to the back of the front seats. Now I can't give you a better answer than that right now because at this moment my Spark EV is toting: • 2 large tubs (laundry basket size) • 4 Home Depot buckets (all full of stuff) • a torso body model • a circulatory system mo...

Re: Heater not working...

Last summer I had trouble with my AC not cooling to the temperature I wanted. It was just taking an edge off the heat. I took the Spark in to a Chevy dealer. They updated the software for free, and I have had no issues since. It sounds like you might have something similar happening with your heater...

Re: help with Bringgo and iPhone 6 connectivity?

As far as the iPhone trying to connect over and over again, I had the same problem. It was my USB cord. I changed to a longer, different-brand cord and have had no problem since. As far as Bringgo, I tried the trial version. I put in my closest Starbucks just to see how well the app would find it an...

Re: I LOVE MY CHEVY SPARK EV!!!

I bought without the quick charge, it's a non issue for me. My Spark doesn't have a QC either. There aren't any quick charging stations anywhere near where I live, so I wouldn't have even had the opportunity to use one in the year and a half I've owned the car if I'd had one. My L 2 charging statio...
