Re: New 2012 owner has questions

Hey congratulations on being a Volt owner, but it sounds like you are not very happy with it. I have a 2011 and I'm afraid I cant help too much with your questions, but I have a little bit of info. 1. I am pretty sure the charger IS built into the car, the home 220 volt chargers you buy, or the publ...

Re: How to get a full charge

To profrws: I have a 2011, and yes it does take about 12 hours on 110 volts. I also found the outlet I was using got VERY hot during the charge, hot enough that I didn't feel safe using it. After about 4 days, I decided to install a brand new 220 Volt circuit and charger which I would HIGHLY recomme...

Re: 2016 BLK Volt

I have a 2011, but I would guess they are the same. The charging cable DOES NOT physically lock to the car, you can still unplug it but the alarm will sound after about 15 seconds. Are you positive you have forward parking sensors, about 4 or 5 small dime sized sensors on the bumper? If yes, they ba...

Re: How to get a full charge

The miles (km in your case) shown on the dash after a full charge is an estimate. As the temperature starts going up as winter fades away, your number will start to increase. Just as an example, again I am here in Arizona, several weeks ago, my car would show 31 or 32 mile range after completely cha...

Re: How to get a full charge

I am not sure this will help you any, as I don't have specifics, but the following is my understanding of how that range is figured. I have a 2011 in the US so I will use miles as my units. From what I read, the range shown on the panel at full charge is based on your previous driving range. I have ...

Re: Long Distancd in Hold Mode

In my situation, OnStar is worth the cost. With that you can start your car from your phone using the remotelink app, you don't have to be within range of the remote. Living in the Phoenix area, it is nice to be able to start my car 10 minutes before getting off work and having it cool when I get th...

Re: Long Distancd in Hold Mode

Should not be a problem. I bought a used 2011 that had 70,000 miles on it. Of those miles, 50,000 were gas and 20,000 were electric. Since I have had it, I have put 17,000 electric and 1,000 gas, all problem free. If you are an OnStar subscriber, think about joining voltstats.net, it's free and you ...

Re: Honking when we get in the car

Check out this link. I have a 2011 and this list seems pretty accurate. I don't know if it is exactly the same for the 2016, but Im sure it will help. Please let me know if the list helps

Re: Need advice from owners of Chevy Volt

OK, my background, I have had my used 2011 Volt for just over 8 months. I have a daily commute of 40 miles. In the 8 months of ownership, I have used 7.4 gallons of gas in over 7400 miles. In your situation, lets take absolute worst case scenario. Lets say you only get 30 miles per charge, using air...
