Chevy Bolt Owners Have Only One Complaint, But Hey, This Is Not a Buick EV
The front seats of the Chevy Bolt are not really comfortable. They are OK, but I wish Chevy would improve them a little bit. I did a little research on the topic and noticed this lengthy discussion about the uncomfortable front seats of the Chevy Bolt at ChebyBolt.org. So it's not only my opinion. People are even asking if a set of stock Volt seats would fit as replacements because Volt seats are more comfortable.
Please note, this is only about the front seats of the Bolt. The rear seats are very comfortable.
Tom from GM Electric Vehicle Onwers group on Facebook, who owns a Bolt, writes this. "My only complaint with ours after 5,000 miles is the bumpy freeway ride. Our Volt was much smoother. The torque and acceleration is awesome!" he writes referring to his Bolt.
I agree with him, based on my driving impression.
Another group member, named Wendel responds to the uncomfortable front seats and says you have to wait for a Buick EV, if you want a really comfortable Buck-type smooth drive.
"For true ‘normal,’ I’d wait for the Buick version, both on styling and re-inclusion of power seats and garage-door openers. I’d have loved to have been a fly on the wall when they decided to keep the rear-view tv screen, but not have a power-assisted hatch. It must have been hilarious," Wendel responds.
Could Chevy Replace Bolt's Front Seats?
Don't misunderstand me. Chevy Bolt is a great car and as I wrote above, it could well be my next vehicle. But I wish Chevrolet would consider replacing the front seats with more comfortable ones and if possible without changing the price. Bolt is growing in popularity and here is what drives the growth of popularity of Chevy Bolt. The interior of the Bolt is really roomy. Besides, last month Chevy Bolt was the best selling BEV in the U.S.
