    Fair point. However, the petition is to eliminate ERDTT in the 2016 MY Volt. My point is that this can't happen though the engineers have increased the power of the heater to eliminate the number of...

    This is a completely pointless exercise. We know that ERDTT is required by federal regulations governing the defroster, so, while the engineers will do their best to minimize it, you can't eliminate...

    +1. Bingo. The range of the car matters not, only how far you drive it daily. Note that for longer trips what you want is DC charging.

    Some people think the Volt needs a 6.6 kW charger. That's...

    These have been known to throw codes. Given the point where he's at, I'm thinking this would not be a good idea.

    I had this on a 2006 MY Honda (Acura really but same difference). Never had a problem on curves. If Honda can do it I'd hope GM could make it work. Other than one time, the only problem, and maybe it...

    Good catch. Dusting off my very creaky German, I'd translate it as "different flavors". I'd wonder about different battery sizes with different performance stats.

    Nice looking car but two doors...

    I think smooth, quiet, and responsive works betters than "fun to drive". The former is more specific and the latter is just so over used. I might toss in the 0-30 time of 2.6 seconds somewhere. That...

    Did you try the key in the slot? If that works I'd just drive it around the block and see if that resets everything. Could also be the proximity sensor. If that didn't work then I'm thinking you have...

    I'd think that would depend on where the service took place. All my service visits to the Chevy dealership show up at OnStar and I'd assume the lessor would have access to those. I also see the...

    Had it ten years ago and it worked. It's a great option to have. My question is why the Volt doesn't have full adaptive cruise control as an option.

    +1. But it's probably more like 90% than 51%.

    Another 5%.

    They may not see that many. Don't know where you are. And the coolant level can be confusing since it's been changed several times. Or...

    It's got some life. That's a plus. And no aliens or explanations of how it works. But they do need a message. Technologically advanced is fine but it's limited.

    It would be interesting to know why it wasn't included. Might be cost. Might be packaging. Might be compatibility with other components. Might be supplier issues. Has to be something though. They...

    Leaving the car on is just one of the possible causes. You should be able to check this fairly easily. If your charger doesn't retain the information look at the "View Charging Details" section of...

    This could be good. LG Chem has a very good separator, but the less chance of a fire the more you can save on the pack. Note that Sakti3, which was mentioned in the article, uses solid state...

    Forward looking utility. Electric cars are a huge opportunity for electric utilities and it's nice to see when one understands that.

    Personally I'd go for more DC chargers and more simple 120v...

    Should be blinking green. Yes you should be concerned. However, most of the causes for this are not serious, including a loose fuel cap. If you've plugged anything into the car that can also cause a...

    I'd take a test drive in the current Volt. I suspect you'll find it a big step up from the Prius in the ride and handling departments. When my friends drove my Volt their big surprise was how quiet...
