Re: Got my Volt Sat. March 5th

Congrats on your new purchase Mike. Got mine 2+ months ago and am still absolutely loving it. To see your VIN# on the center stack, just turn the radio power off (push the volume button in), and it shows up on the bottom right. I believe I heard that the first 7000 Volts would have this info display...

Re: Location based charging profile?

So, just plug in, wait a second, un-plug, then plug in? Or do I have to wait for the horn honk? Scott You don't need to wait even a second (certainly not the 5 seconds it takes to get the beep). I've done it super quick just pulling out as soon as I put it in, then right back in and it starts charg...

Sounds like fun, count me in!

Golden Gate Park sounds good too as long as there is ample parking somewhere there.

Can't make Feb 5 but other weekends are all open.

Re: Picked up our new Volt 1-16-11

Congrats on the new Volt John. I've had mine for 4 weeks now and am loving it. It inspired me to buy a little bit of GM stock today. :)

Sounds like we've got quite a few Bay Area Volts now. We should have a meet up and compare notes.

Re: Got my Volt!

Congrats GoYogi. I saw a Gray Volt in Mountain View on Friday, guess that wasn't you if you picked yours up on Sat. It wasn't far from Google, and I saw on a GM-volt thread that 2 Google execs got Vin #s 003 and 004, so maybe it was one of them.

Re: charger installation rebate

Frede: 1) what electrician is going to install the unit for you before New Years? 2) will the Voltec still qualify for the DoE unit freebee program? I don't have an electrician yet, need to find one. I'm not in a huge hurry to have it installed, I figure I'll get the 50% 2010 tax credit for the Vol...

Re: charger installation rebate

I just heard about the $1200 California rebate today when SPX called me to give a quote for installing the Coulomb charger. Their quote for installation was $2800 total, minus the $1200 CA rebate (which they collect, so you don't have to wait for tax time to get it, which is good). That includes upg...

Re: Volt on the way!

Chewy, what dealer did you get yours from? I am with Putnam Chevy in Burlingame, current status 4150 according to ChevyConnects.com, but have no idea where mine is, could be rail, could be truck. I think all of California is getting rail except for the lucky few in SoCal (like sgc) who got theirs by...

Re: New Chevy Volt Buyer's Poll and Sound Off!

I'm confused how cars can have started being produced at the end of October, take 10-15 days to complete, yet the first car ("Job 1") isn't going to roll of the assembly line until Nov 30. Are they really going to store these completed cars for 2 weeks just for some dumb ceremony? My car h...
