Re: 7500 tax credit going away asap

you guys r missing the whole point of my post. it doesn't matter if it was a credit or deduction or whatever. the prices of the used ev always reflected the 7500 plus 2500 in cali. 10k always came off the top once used. if u look on autotrader the bolt is selling for 30k with 1500 miles. the 10k cam...

7500 tax credit going away asap

the new tax plan is going to end the deduction at once. no phasing out. they are making the tax form simple with only a couple deductions. I wonder how this will effect used prices next year when its signed into law. the only reason we were able to buy a sparke for 9k was because of all the deductio...

Bolt vs SparkE

I test drove the Bolt tonight for comparison. What a incredible car. That car was even faster than the sparke and it had that star wars jet sound when you smashed the pedal. If they have a end of the year 30% clearance, I might actually buy one. People r complaining about the seats. They were fine f...

Re: Recall notice concerning range estimation

Just had it done. Remember your software's wiped clean when you get it back. My screen was showing 51.1 mi/kWh for about 5 miles when I left the dealer. Reset it after getting groceries and it seems like a more normal 5.0 or so now. Freaked out for a bit and thought they imported the problem. Just ...

Estimated miles accuracy?

Today i was driving and the average miles froze at 18 for a while. It didnt move and i must have driven a good 7 miles. when I was at a red light i turned the car off to see what it showed and it showed 14 miles per kwh which is impossible. I was going 45 to 50 miles a hour. eventually the numbers s...

My capacity went up?

after doing the recall i did the formula to check capacity. when i bought the car i was in the mid 16's at half and then almost empty. i am at 17.5 with 25 miles to go. when it gets close to empty i will check again. did the update actually bring my range up?

Re: Recall notice concerning range estimation

why are they replacing the battery on the bolt if they can just update the module. also,i did the formula for capacity and im at 17.4 at 35% usage. i will see what it is when it gets closer to 80% usage. that seems higher than when i did it when i first bought the car.
