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.

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.

DST issue was not resolved at the last visit when dealer replaced the audio unit. I did tell them that it was the car' s own internal clock that was not switching over but they did not listen. I guess they know better. STILL NOT FIXED!

Releasing electric parking brake after the Volt has sat for a while seems to seize the rear left caliper.rnThe badly scored rotor and defective caliper then releases with a nasty clunking noise. All other rotors are smooth.

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.
