Re: In the market for a Spark, but concerned that it's been discontinued

It's guaranteed for 8 years from date of first sale (for battery and charging parts), so the manufacturer will have something available. If you are worried about spare parts and you are buying a car for the next 15 years, maybe not the Spark EV. It has had very few problems reported (but then, only...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

The Spark is brought up in the article. https://insideevs.com/news/389891/exclusive-interview-electrify-america-problems-solutions/ Thanks for the post. 6 months ago I reported to Electrify America that my 2016 Spark EV could not charge at any of the 10 Electrify America chargers - I tired them all...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

I am down to 13.6kWh usable on my 2014 Spark steady decline year over year, and I only do about 7000 miles a year with it. How many miles are on your ODO? The linear trendline for my TorquePro battery capacity data shows I will hit 13.5 kWh in about 8000 miles (in about 2 years) when my 2014 ODO hi...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

Happy New Year! This is not very current as I'm past 75 k miles. Readings are from the Energy Screen. I don't have Torque Pro working with the Bolt PIDs yet. Is there a big difference in data between the two methods? Mileage- date - % Used - kWh used - Present Capacity kWh 70001 8-29-19 81% 15 18.5...

Re: Front tire wear

...I am a very conservative driver. My questions are these: Is this wear pattern (so much more on the fronts) within expected range? ... Keep in mind ALL the Go Power and up to 60 kW of the Stop Power is handled by those 185's up front. The car has Blended Brakes which means when using the brake pe...

Re: Front tire wear

I have a 2015 Chevy Spark EV. I now have just over 20k miles on it. The front tires are getting close to the wear bars. The rears look great, having about 80% left. I bought the car used with 5k miles on it so I have driven most of the miles. I believe that these are the original tires (Bridgestone...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

I've tried the site in Charlotte, NC twice now with the Spark, and both times, without and then with their App, the sessions were unsuccessful. They are ABB units, so it's not surprising. The last time, I nearly ran out of power, due to two other fast chargers in the area that wouldn't work (4th on...

Re: Battery degredation

I'm now down to 13.07 kWh, which is 71% of the original capacity, on my 2015 Spark. Is anyone else's lower than this? At this rate I'll be at 65% capacity (11.96 kWh) within a year. My first Spark EV was a leased 2015. At 1414 miles my "calculated" battery capacity was 18.8 kWh. When I turned it in...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

EA finally opened the charging stations at the Walmart Supercenter and there are complaints from an e-Golf owner and a Hyundai Ioniq Electric owner with charging problems. EA responded saying they know there are problems with the CHAdeMO station, but the CCS stations are available. Both cars use CC...
