Re: HID's upgraded

The shield you referred to is a physical solenoid operated shutter that lifts up to expose the entire reflector. I saw it when connecting the marker lights on my 2012. With the headlamp assembly out of the car, you can reach in through the access hole and move it manually. My guess it's a DOT requir...

Re: Chevy Bolt Drive

All depends where you live / what dealer you buy from. Here in SF Bay area in CA, you can drive out with one right on the spot. Five of my coworkers already got theirs. I'm kind of jealous.

Re: Chevy Bolt Drive

I have driven both. Over 65k miles between two leased FFEs. One week with a Bolt owned by an out of state buyer. I'm torn. Advantages Bolt: 60 kWh! Run the heater! Pedal to the metal! Who cares?!? No need to micromanage the measly 18 kWh usable capacity. (Yes I've measured it.) That a huuuuge advant...

Cabin preheat via remote start blows cold air...

Whenever I try to use the remote to preheat the car when it's cold, I get into the car and it's blowing cold air. I have the temperature set to "Auto" and the defrost off. When driving, I have the temp set to LO and the A/C off. I can get it to blow hot air if I turn the heat up just before turning ...

Can't do that because, since the car was new, attempting to run the report returned the error: Low Mileage A report can no...

Re: 2012 FFE 150 miles. What's it worth?

Leather or cloth interior?
With leather, you also get a power driver's seat.

The rain sensing wipers and auto dimming mirror make the 2012s slightly more desirable than the later model years.
