Part 2 of 2 messages: Once connected to the battery charger for awhile and tried to start, it responded. When we contacted one of the GM Chevy dealer, they notified us that they ordered a new cord for us to replace the possibly defective charging cord.Additionally, we are still waiting for a Chevy dealer in Mt Pleasant, MI to get the battery bracket to be order per the recall instruction which we received in April or May 2012. Everytime we call and asked about the bracket for the battery, they blame GM HQ for not responding. I am planning to write a letter to the GM President for explanation as to why it's taking so long to get the recalled item to be installed. We could of have two of the hybrids for the cost of Volt we paid for in 2011. I'm about to trade this Volt, which we enjoyed until sloppy support we are receiving from the GM folks at this time. Any suggestions for me on this frustrated owner?
Part 1 of 2 Messages: I am not all too familiar with this forum but I would like to share my thoughts on Volt. We owned Volt since 2011, the first model. We have nearly 50,000 miles and driven from coast to coast. Seems Volt did not have any major problems but did have problems climbing very high altitudes coming through the Rocky Mountain passes and the charging cord needed to be replaced as it came apart around the weak wire connection areas. Recently we left Volt at home instead of driving from the Central Michigan area to Chicago to catch a flight to Seattle, due to possible snow storm. Prior to leaving our home, the charging cord acted there was going to be a problem as when tried to plug into Volt, the light did not appear on the top middle of the front dash board. Upon returning home in 15 days, Volt was completely dead and there was no sign of battery life.
