    Wrinkles in black trim tape between doors, how to fix?

    The decals are available from GM - same part for ICE / EV versions. Our 2015 had wrinkles on drivers side only - I removed them from front rear doors on drivers side before selling car... It allows me to keep track of it. 😅 bnc

    Jack points and tire rotation

    No rotation on original 2015 tires. New OEM tires installed on front at 21k miles, still on original rears... You guys must abuse tires... We do maintain the cars with tire balancing and alignment checked yearly. Bryan

    2051 Spark EV body paint are kind of thin.

    Odd... Our 2015 has fading paint as well on the rear wing thingy... But, still seeing ~80 miles of range daily on the GOM at 26k miles, so we got that going for us. Still staying on the L1 Home / L2 office plug nipple daily to full SOC. Bryan in NC

    Questions and Data tracking

    I haven't checked our battery capacity yet, but we're still seeing 80-85 miles of range avg on GOM, on our 2015 Spark EV, and we're at 25k miles today. Always plugged in to Level 1 at home, Level 2 at office for ~8 hrs/day, and 14 DCFC full charges since we bought the car. Bryan in NC

    GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

    I'm just getting started with checking battery capacity after 3+ years & it's merely curiosity for me. I feel pretty confident that GM Engineers designed the packs to handle 100% charge at each 'fill-up' - Time will tell! Bryan

    GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

    Last night, I charged our 2015 Spark EV 2 LT at an EVGO station, and charged to 100%, with GOM showing 77 miles of range (50-degree temps last night). Car has been in our hands since late 2016, when we purchased it as a 178 mile demo unit. This is only the ninth time using L3/DC charging...

    Front tire wear

Car now has 23k miles & still on good tread / condition rear factory installed tires. Bought the car with 178 miles on it -...

    Stopped by the EA charge station here in Raleigh, NC this morning - found a number of the terminals to be down due to card reader issues, 3 would not connect to our 2015 Spark. Tried terminal 1, and it managed to connect & provided full charge. Spoke with EA Customer Service to let them know of...

    Porsche mission e depreciation

    The Porsche 'likely' won't be a disposable car like the Tesla. Try buying new parts from Tesla - it ain't happening. Salvage prices on Tesla S/X are high due to lack of spare parts. And the 800-lb Gorilla in the room is the question: "What will it cost to service a Tesla that is out of...

    Any Spark EV Owners in North Carolina?

    7500 tax credit going away asap

    Wow... I went away for a few days, and Hell breaks loose. Re: EV tax credit - kill it. Now. With fire if required. It's on its way towards planned obsolescence, anyway. If it dies tomorrow, or a year from now, it still dies. From the politics side, there is no 'Progressive' position. It's a...
