2015 Chevrolet Volt

Engine not specified

Chevrolet Volt in Quebec, Canada
Mar 2017 - Apr 2018
Jan 2018 During winter there is a frost build-up on the interior side of sheet metal roof. When driving for a long ride, ice becomes to melt and water drains in OnStar buttons. When going in a heated parking, all ice melted. Find water on seats, A pillar, OnStar buttons, etc. The dealer told my wife that was caused by bad snow removal on rhe roof of the car. That was obviously wrong when dealer tested the roof and windshield and concludes there were water tight. GM Canada wrote me that this was caused by my Weathertec floor mats that retains water from snow melting. After, GM Canada told me that moisture and frost in the interior of the vehicle was because we were setting tbe climate control to "Auto". It takes 1 week before GM finally accepts to pay repairs under the warranty. Worrying about water and moisture going everywhere in this car, airbags, etc. we decide to sell it and purchase a Prius Prime that is equipex with a heat pump that eliminate very well interior moisture.

Volt refused 240v charging but accepted 110v charging. Dealer changed a computer. Won't be clear if fix was successful until we have another downpour. I had the same issue, twice, as a 2013 model owner, namely coming out and finding all my windows rolled down. Each time nothing was stolen and it wasn't raining. GM says I must have accidentally held down the unlock button on the fob.

Car would not accept a charge from either 110 or 220 charging stations. The charging socket in the front left fender was replaced with one less likely to soft ground faults. Car's NON ADJUSTABLE internal clock did not switch time when DST kicked in. This resulted in incorrect estimated charging times of 1 hr. Console clock is only correct after manual adjustment and leaving it in manual. 3 Hours wasted @ dealer.

After 5 days, clock DST issue is unresolved. Additional problems now with Radio since they played with it. Awaiting call for a "system" replacement. Not impressed.

ABS came on once this fall when braking when there clearly was no reason for it due to low speed, flat road condition, etc. I did not bother to see the dealer. Similarly to last year, and at about the same time, meaning during very wet and damp weather, radio/center console panel stopped responding completely when I tried to lower audio volume. This meant that for about 10 minutes, I had no ventilation controls, nothing, except for emergency flashers. Shutting the car and re-starting did not fix the problem. This happened twice within 20 minutes. The last time I went in they said "no fault found". I'm anxiously waiting to trade this dangerous car in for a different brand.

Not really a repair, more like I've given up. Car still has not switched to DST and we are 30 March now. Also on two occasions audio system went dead i.e. "greyed out apps" while driving. This meant no phone, no volume controls, no cd play function, no AM, FM. The ventilation "app" like button still functioned. No amount of "rebooting" fixed it. After 30 minutes or so parked, it was like nothing ever happened. Seriously tired of these problems.

Cabin heating was virtually non-existent in all-electric mode. Dealer found a software update was due that would address this issue, so they applied the update. The update did seem to fix the issue, but other parts were also faulty, so in the end, this update did not fix my no-heat issue in all-electric mode. The heat stopped working in all-electric mode. Technician diagnosed faulty Heater Coolant Control Module and/or faulty Auxillary Coolant Pump, and replaced both under GM High Voltage Warranty. Ops check good.

This was the 12 Volt battery, not the main Volt PHEV battery pack. It stranded the car 2x in one day. I had to take it to the shop and they identified a cell that was bad and replaced the whole battery. It was more expensive than some other 12V batteries. All total, I guess around $250 including diagnosis, parts and labor. Also I took the opportunity to have some needed regular checks performed, and some coolant flushed.

Installation of the 4G Onstar system was botched and caused weird electrical issues in my Volt, including a complete stall during a trip. Upon my return, I complained and they acknowledged reprograming was not done properly. Radio (with navigation) on Volt 2013 is prone to "freezes". I had to change the radio TWICE since I purchased the car (May 2015), before I finally (?) got a "stable" radio that doesn't freeze intermittently .

2011 and 2012 Volts can have reduced propulsion power after shutting down and restarting in charge-sustaining (gas) mode. A software update was applied which changed the minimum state of charge for the vehicle so it does not go into reduced propulsion power mode. It unfortunately also reduces the total available electric range of the vehicle.

Car failed to start (in Volt, this means computer failed to start properly and all sorts of error messages). Car also refuses to turn off in this state, press and hold power button seemed to make it shut off. Checked 12V battery Voltage and it was low. The 12V battery is fairly new (about 1 year). Charged 12V battery and car started immediately. Hasn't been a problem since. I figure something stuck on and caused the 12V to discharge overnight.
