erratic check engine coming up occasionally

With winter coming my mileage pre charge is going to around 32miles per charge. At summer time I got around 42miles. Now recently the check engine lit up few times. So far I have seen lighting up twice on while I turned on and start driving with gas, and other one purely on electric. Therefore it do...

Re: Regenerative Braking

Re: Regenerative Braking

With my older troublesome acura, it drove me nuts after only few thousand miles, the disk warps and steering wheel shakes even though brake pad has still life left. It means, you just keep driving with thi...

Re: Volt reflections on 100 days of use

could you provide the link for phone mount? I found there is virtually no suitable spot to place the phone anywhere, cd slot might be a good idea. I had older suction one which worked pretty good for certain time but no longer holding these days.

Re: Regenerative Braking

I am wondering how regen braking reduces the risk warping if any? I just ourchased my volt few days ago, do you guys feel the front brake warping is experienced at all and if so happens less frequently than non regen braking? once the disk is warped steering wheel will shake violently on braking. if...
