Thanks everyone. The unreliability issues included a dead car (see "my cmax died" elsewhere in this forum for details) that seemed to stem from 12v battery and computer module issues, and a transmission failure at 70,000 miles (fortunately under warranty). I loved the car, but it seemed to be in the shop much more than I expected from a new car (it was my first). Compared to the Bolt, the C-Max is luxurious. I loved and miss the C-Max interior, seats, controls, and just the general feel. The Bolt is essentially an economy car with an expensive battery. But what a battery! I wanted more range since I live in a rural area, and the Bolt (so far after 10 days) really delivers. The 238 miles EPA rating seems easily doable and is surpassed in low-speed, local driving. I just took a thousand-mile trip from northeast West Virginia to the Detroit area, and the Bolt performed beautifully. I drove mostly highway speeds on the various turnpikes--65 mph with slow-downs for the many construction areas--with 1/2 hour and 1 hour "combo" fast charger stops (2 one-hour stops on the way home). The biggest problem for these all-electric vehicles is the sparse and unreliable charging network. I went to two different EVgo fast chargers in Ann Arbor and Belleville, and neither was working. A third was inaccessible due to construction work. So I wound up having to use the Bolt's 120v charging cord plugged in at my brother's garage. It works but is excruciatingly slow. The Bolt interior is definitely more roomy than the Volt. Three people can fit comfortably in the rear seats, and there is plenty of leg room even when the front seats are positioned all the way toward the rear. Lots of cargo space too. Perhaps the biggest gripe I have with the Bolt is the narrowness of the front seats, After driving my C-Max for over a hundred thousand miles in comfort, I find the Bolt seats to be inferior. I'm hoping a cushion will remedy that. All in all I'm pretty happy with my new Bolt and love being able to do everything--even the rare long trip--on electricity only. I'll try to keep you posted and answer any questions as time goes on.
