One of the most irritating things about the current Chevy Bolt fire danger recall danger -- approximately six Bolts out of 140,000 made have burned -- is the general public's ignorance and lack of knowledge vis-a-vis a basic fact: Gas cars, millions of them across just the last several years, have been recalled for fire danger. This number INCLUDES recalls of countless ICEs for which the fire danger existed even for ICEs that were standing and not on, and for which recommendations were similar to what GM is recommending for the Bolt: Whenever possible, park your car outside, not in a garage.
I’ve been an EV advocate for 12 years, driven 100% EV for nearly eight years, solar-charged an EV for four of those eight years, and now driven two leased Chevy Bolts for more than 50,000 miles and more than four years, a red 2017 Bolt, which I drove for 32,000 miles and three years, and a blue 2020 Chevy Bolt, which I have driven for 18 months and 17,000 miles so far.
I recently completed a 1,200 mile drive from Littleton, Colo. to Goleta, Calif. with my teen daughter, Kyra, in a leased 2020 Chevy Bolt. I did the same road trip in a leased 2017 Bolt three years ago.
My daughter Kyra and I completed our two-day road trip in our 2020 Chevy Bolt from Littleton, Colo. to Goleta, Calif., where my sister and her family live yesterday at 8 p.m. Pacific Time last night.
My daughter Kyra and I drove 590 miles in our leased 2020 Chevy Bolt today from Littleton, Colo. to Cedar City, Utah. It was the first leg of a 2,400-mile round trip road trip from our home Littleton, Colo. to my sister's home in Goleta, Calif.
Three years ago, my two daughters and I did a 2,400-mile round-trip road trip in my leased 2017 Chevy Bolt from our home in Littleton, Colo. to my sister's family's home in Goleta, Calif.
