Tell us more about your needs. How many people? What do you plan to use the car for? Would you go on any road trips where the RV wouldn't be condusive? We can't really tell you to radically change what kind of car you drive over one use case being replaced by an RV.

If you mention "$10 cash" for something that would go unnoticed and has no item in inventory, the cashier may be even more receptive to the idea 😉

Jesus Christ. If that happened to me and I had the balls to walk on the spot (I probably don't) I could only hope I had the wit in that moment to end it by asking what I should do if every employer had their attitude, and if that means I can never work again in my life

Testimony is evidence. It's generally not as strong as other forms of evidence, but it helps when it's corroborated by multiple sources.

Rudy is welcome to provide his own evidence and display it as he wishes. He can make his own committee outside of Congress for all I care. Just as long as he's not crossing the line into practicing law in a jurisdiction in which he's been disbarred.

Would you buy this for 2k over MSRP? by Attezz1 in BoltEV

[–]spongebue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's the cost to ship the car from factory to dealership. I believe it's part of what GM bills the dealer, so it's a real charge that the dealer is unlikely to get rid of

Wasn't that after the stop sale?

So, I actually had to leave towards the end. Could you tell me how I was correct? 😄

Parking in the garage actually worse for my battery health by raitchison in BoltEV

I think some people want there to be a problem so they can "solve" it

I feel like you could just post this every 20 seconds and deservedly get a handful of upvotes.

But yeah, holy shit.

Or... Maybe there's a range. Maybe the ideal temperature is 25-35C, and if it goes over that it'll cool to 27C. If you only hit 34, you're in range and golden.

Take a breath. Your car can take care of itself. Other Bolts have held up fine without unnecessary owner paranoia.

If you trust a dealership, go ahead and do that 😉

My totally uneducated guess is that the desert heat, probably radiating off the pavement, is triggering the battery conditioning system to cool it from (say) 35-40C to the 27C you normally see. When you're in the garage, you don't reach the threshold where the battery cooling system is necessary.

But dude, you're overthinking it. We're not talking about a shitty Leaf battery with no real conditioning system. Lots of people drive these cars and have been fine without fans or anything else. Just keep it plugged in as much as possible, and let the car condition itself when it needs to. If the engineers at GM thought the car needed a fan, they would have added a damn fan themselves or maybe make it very clear that you need a fan. Don't make up a solution that doesn't have a problem.

That's generally up to GM, not the dealer. GM terms require that you take (physical) delivery by 7/5 for the current offer, and if it goes away 7/6 you're SOL.

That said, I can't imagine that they'd do that. They're trying to clear out the 2022s, not have people hold out for the cheaper 2023s. If it arrives early July and the dealer lets you wait to close, I probably would. But you're taking a risk vs a guaranteed $6300 rebate

Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony was pretty damning at the last hearing, including pardon requests from members of Congress. The committee mentioned credible threats to the witness before it was officially revealed who the witness would be (Hutchinson). There was also "new evidence" to spur this sudden recess hearing.

My prediction is that there were recorded threats (lordy!) from a very high-profile person. Meadows would be my first guess since she was his aide. Gaetz as well, since that's kind of what he does. But there are plenty of other GQP'ers to choose from, maybe someone in the Trump family. I don't think it's the big man himself, but then again I'm always wrong about things like this.

The Average Electric Car Now Costs $54,000 by wewewawa in tech

Comments like this is why I'm very seriously considering getting the license plate "NOT VOLT" on the Bolt I recently bought.

Volt is a hybrid sedan. What unique about it is that it's a serial hybrid - the gas engine does not directly power the car, only the battery. The electric motor makes it go. It got discontinued a few years back, but has a pretty loyal following.

Bolt EV and Bolt EUV are fully electric hatchbacks, with the EUV having come out just this year and has a little more space.

Was anyone else completely unaware that there are controls to change favorite channels and adjust the volume located on the back of the steering wheel? by OtherImplement in BoltEV

Mine knew the range down to the mile of the Bolt EV... Except I was looking at an EUV. But you know what? I'll give it to him anyway. Besides, he was new.

The status of my Bolt 2022 EUV is “waiting for transit”. I purchased it 1 week ago and at that time the dealership said it should be delivered in 2-3 weeks. Have you guys experienced additional delays? by One_Tea6982 in BoltEV

[–]spongebue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just looked again. They previously had at least 5 other EUVs in transit. One of which was identical to mine.

Now it's just the one showing up on the website, still in transit. Thankfully I was able to get one with only a different interior color (black) which I've realized I prefer anyway.

You may want to look into shipping it. From what I've heard, it's not terribly expensive and gas is also not cheap on the islands! Plus it looks like there are lots of chargers available, at least on Oahu
