Would love to hear about energy consumption on the Bolt!  I hope it has good reporting of Watt-Hours per Mile (or equivalent).

 

 

When we got our Bolt it had 278 miles (dealer trade from Norfolk VA to Durham NC) on it and lifetime 3.9 miles per kWh.

 

We are now at 3,000+ miles and lifetime 4.1 miles per kWh is.  The heater is a big energy drain.  On days where we use no heat or maybe just the seat heater we have been 4.5-5.5.  Other owners say AC does not use as much energy as the heat - we will see.

Thanks.  My noise is certainly quite different - and everything is working normally.

 

4 to 5+ miles per kWh sounds great and should improve with warmer weather.  That usage should correspond to about half the energy cost of a hybrid.

Add me to the list... 2013 Hybrid SE, just shy of 75K.  Last 40K are mine, mostly city.   Anyway to lookup the build date online?  The window sticker lookup tools seem to have gone kaput.

 

Dropped it off this morning, noticed grinding bearings sound on Thursday.  Thought it was a wheel bearing, but tire guy told me the "bad news."  Was really depressed until I saw that the eCVT has a 100K coverage.  Hopefully the dealer won't fight me.

You should be in good shape if you transferred the warranty. :)

"Add me to the list... 2013 Hybrid SE, just shy of 75K.  Last 40K are mine, mostly city. "   That sounds like you didn't have the car from New. :headscratch:

Most (all?) new car warranties carry over to subsequent buyers.   You don't need to transfer anything.

 

Car has been in for a week, waiting on the eCVT.... optimistically hoping to get back next Monday.  Got a new Focus to tool around in, so that helps.

Verbalk was it taken care of without issue? Also has anyone had the transmission replaced under the CARB 150k miles?

Picked up our CMAX Energi yesterday from our local Ford dealer service department after the repair.  They had it for about 8 days.  The eCVT failed with 63K, and mostly electric miles.  The build date was 12/22/2012.  They reported that the differential and transfer shaft bearings were pitted, and performed TSB 18-2328 to replace HF35 transmission assembly.  Several parts were included in the invoice including brake cleaner, sealant, and anti-freeze, but ATF wasn't listed.  I hope they didn't put the old stuff back in.

I believe the replacement HF35 transmissions already include the automatic transmission fluid (sealed unit).

 

The invoice of my HF35 transmission replacement back in Nov 2017 (per TSB17-0039) included 5 quarts of what I believe to be engine oil. It was listed after Brake Cleaner and Anti-Freeze as "5 XT*10 QLVC OIL- AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION".

 

I just hope Ford fixed the known bearing issue in the replacement transmissions so it does not re-occur. So far, my new transmission has 15K miles on it and is as quiet as the day I bought the vehicle in 2013.

They use Mercon LV in the transmission.  Probably QLVC is the transmission fluid, which isn't listed on my invoice.  The transmission isn't actually sealed.  If you pull either axle shaft, the fluid will leak out.

I have pulled and replaced my right hand axle and the fluid doesn't leak out. :)

I also replaced the right axle, and the toughest part was refilling the tranny. Good to know.

I didn't empty the trans, It didn't accrue to me for the need to do it. :headscratch:
