Re: Contacts at Chevrolet for Spark EV warranty guidance?

Hi all, I recently bought a 2016 LT1 through Vroom, and last week, I took the car to my local Chevy dealership (Superior Chevrolet, Decatur, GA) to get an all-points inspection + a traction battery condition check during the 7-day return window. The technician reported that the car's battery is rep...

Re: Remote recondition source of power?

Basically, anything in the vehicle that draws power will, to some degree, affect the GOM number. Fo instance, my latest GOM number in my 2014 Spark EV is about 3.5 miles / kWh. I have the heater set to 73 degrees, and the fan speed to 2 and the headlights are turned on. Same thing goes when I use th...

Re: L-mode drives like D?

I almost always drive in L mode in town. This morning I turned on the car after charging fully (and also remote recond.), and immediately noticed that while I was in L it behaved exactly like D. Thinking it might be some issue with the shifter switch, I stopped and shifted to P and back down to L, ...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

energy capacity (kWh) storage) level at or within approximately 10% of that of the original battery at the time of warranty repair" It kind of sucks that the warranty only "Guarantees" 10% improvement over whatever the current capacity is. Luckily it seems like the current GM process has them repla...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

Personally, I would escalate the poor service issue to GM. I would underline that Fairway charged you for the service and did not perform the test. Tell them that you have dash-cam footage that proves it. Request a reimbursement for the testing fee (ask from GM, and tell them it is up to GM to get ...

Re: SERVICE LIGHT goes on and off

See if you can find someone with an OBD2 scanner and check the OBD2 port for possible error codes. Make a note of each code and then clear them and see if they return. In my 2014 Spark EV, I had a couple of codes that kept popping up after being cleared multiple times. It turned out I had an intermi...
