The Bolt will have more OEM and aftermarket parts support for longer due to the production numbers. The Spark EV is made in South Korea and the Bolt is made in the USA. There is a noticeabl...

Re: Reprogram ecm drive battery parameters??

My observations of the battery cell voltage when the car is charged to 100% SOC shows that the battery is using about 98% of it's capacity so I don't think there is anything to unlock on our cars.

Re: Battery Degradation vs Battery Limited Warranty

From my torque pro readings the individual cells are charging to about 98% their max voltage. I doubt their is any hidden capacity available on our cars.

Re: Losing range after DC fast charging.

It may be because the cooling system is working to get the battery pack temperature and charging components back down to an optimal level.

Re: Insurance

We have state farm as well with full coverage. Our 2017 Volt insurance is lower than our 2016 Spark EVs insurance. It must have something to do with crash ratings. We were coming from 20 year old cars with just liability though so it is a bit of sticker shock.

Re: 2016 vs 2014

I think we need to get NORTON an OBD2 reader and Torque Pro so we can compare apples to apples.
