Re: Low Range Used 2015

After 2 1/2 years of ownership, I don't get overly concerned about things like that simply for the fact that the Spark is doing what I expected of it. I can commute with it and I can do all of my local running around with it. :D

Re: New 2016 Chevy Spark EV owner

Congrats on your Spark purchase. I picked up my 2015 in November of 2018 and since then, I recently replaced the 6 year old battery and the 6 year old rear tires. That's all the maintenance I've put into it, so far.

Re: Battery degredation

It's been 2 1/2 years since I bought the Spark and my battery went from 12.2 kWh to 14.2 kWh. You gotta love it.

Re: Can a DC Fast charger be added to a 2016 Spark EV?

At $2000 in 2015, wouldn't it be less expensive to just trade it in for one that already has DC charging from the factory?

Re: Can a DC Fast charger be added to a 2016 Spark EV?

Weber Auto looked into adding DC charging to a Bolt that didn't have it and found it couldn't be done. I would imagine since it's similar in layout to the Bolt, the Spark is in the same situation.

Re: Spark or Bolt ?

I have a Spark EV and a Bolt and each has its own purpose. ;)

Re: How to put down back seat

I pull the headrest up until it clears the seat bottom, when folded. That's as flat as I ever need them.

Re: Does anybody know what this part is?

More pics may help, but maybe the parking brake cable?

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Plugshare showed that EA had my closest station up and running with new ABB units, so I decided to give it a try. I went for the worst-case scenario first, and plugged in to a 350kw unit and activated without supporting the handle. Activated first try and it's currently charging! https://i.ibb.co/K...

The dealer by me has theirs outside. I heard that Chevy told their dealers that they had to install them for EV's.
Not holding my breath for the Chevy dealers around here to put them up.
