Re: 2016 Spark - Can't trade lease, need advice

You can just turn it in early and pay the rest of the months left off (i.e. if you owe 12 more payments at $100/mo, you would just pay $1,200 + lease termination fees (if they apply)). I did this with my 2015 Spark EV at the 30 month mark so I didn't risk having to pay back any of my CA rebate. I ha...

Re: Returning leased Spark EV without LRR tires

Well I went ahead and replaced all four with correct sizes of Kumhi Ecsta 4X II as mine were pretty worn out and it goes back next month so I wanted to have fresh rubber for my final time. I had bought them over a year ago when tire rack had a crazy sale going on for them so I wanted to try them out...

Returning leased Spark EV without LRR tires

Are low rolling resistance tires required when returning a leased Spark EV? Does anyone have any experience with this?

Re: Software Version Tracking

Just had my 2015 Spark EV updated to "SW part number: 16.40-42475606" today to resolve issue with Onstar/Bluetooth Mic/Compass taking a dive. There was also a service campaign involving another software update to address "incorrect range estimate" which I didn't have any awareness of any problems on...

Re: Code P1F0B: The Battery is not performing as expected

I don't have any voltage testing equipment so nothing was tested on my end. All I know is it refused to take charge, OnStar quoted multiple errors so I brought it into the dealer. The dealer advised me yesterday they had opened up a case with GM Engineering. As of today, they have identified a fault...

Re: Code P1F0B: The Battery is not performing as expected

My "service vehicle soon" light went on in my new, used Spark EV. I hit the blue onstar button, and after signing up for the 3 year basic plan, talked to someone who emailed me the diagnostic information: Through your recent On-Demand Diagnostic, OnStar detected an issue with Not charging properly ...

Re: 7500 mile service/recall fix experience

I took my car to George Chevrolet for service. Again I had to educate them. No tire rotation, check for software updates, etc. Per onstar I need to take it to my local dealer to check battery degredation level. George Chevrolet said they cannot do that and I have to call the warranty company. Again...
