Funny. I never thought of the social medias as an addiction but it does have that flavor.

Count me in the curmudgeon corps. I cannot tolerate the incessant nagging or deluge of trivia, and the echo chamber of disinformation makes me want to puke.
I post pictures of local scenery. I regularly follow no one's posts, other than a couple of HS friends. One of which posts pictures of Hawaii. The other of Mexico.

I agree, I think Facebook is what you make of it to some extent. I use it exactly the same, just a place to post my hiking photos for my friends and family. There certainly are many crazy groups one could join to get the full Facebook experience.... but no thank you. For example I live in a very conservative town, for CA, and I know there are some Trump parade / rally Facebook groups still going strong. Barf.

Looks like a definite liftover "lip" back there, if a relatively low one. And if you want a flat cargo floor that can carry more than a light load, you'll likely need to build it yourself. They should just give you a shaped block of the tough flex foam used to ship laptops.

My sole experience of Facebook was with a local EV group. The "owner" of the group was on an ego trip and started editing my posts when he didn't like them. I was one of the few successful FB escapees.
Given where you live, I think I know the individual you are referring to. He is a great EV advocate, but often gets wrapped up in his opinions. He kicked out a good friend of mine for having a different opinion on the topic of BEVs versus PHEVs.

Having people hold such power over those groups is a good way to study primate behavioral dynamics, but not such a good way to promote cohesion.

I came across https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/R ... 1-6414.PDF where on page 1 it says Estimated percentage with defect : 1%. A few new documents have been added to https://www.nhtsa.gov/vehicle/2017/CHEV ... WD#recalls recently.

The last page mentions 2 phases for notifications of the final remedy.

The Bolt case may also be the Hyundai case, since they share the same battery/pack.
Last week Hyundai pointed a finger at the electrode separator as the root cause but LG disagrees.

The idea of the separator being the problem has to do with its failure to prevent dendrite penetration (and thus a short.)
May be true, but those sound like some serious dendrites.
No. I've never heard of Bolt and Hyundai Kona Electric sharing the same pack.

Seems unlikely given that https://media.chevrolet.com/media/us/en ... .tab1.html says there are 288 cells whereas https://electricrevs.com/2018/12/20/exc ... nt-design/ says 294 for Kona EV.

There's a pic that says:
This image shows the type of LG pouch cell used in the Chevrolet Bolt EV. It is about 4 inches high, 13 inches long, and 0.6 inches thick and weighs about 1.8 pounds. The Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia Niro EV, Jaguar I-PACE, and Audi e-tron use cells with a roughly similar shape, size, and energy capacity.
A common thread is LG Chem.
Besides GM claiming that Bolt uses different separators than Kona Electric (https://insideevs.com/news/489753/chevy ... tors-kona/), https://insideevs.com/news/490950/lg-en ... ona-fires/ came out which also has a pointer to https://www.hyundai.com/content/hyundai ... tation.pdf.

To quote IEVs which quoted LG Energy Solution:
“LG Energy Solution’s Statement on Kona EV Recall:

In connection with the additional implementation of the recent voluntary Kona EV recall, the investigation has not yet been completed. However, we will continue to work closely with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport of the Republic of Korea and Hyundai Motors to ensure the recall is carried out smoothly with our highest priority on consumers’ safety.

The misalignment inside the battery cell (the folded anode tab) is cited as the reason for this recall, but it is hard to consider this as a direct cause since no fire occurred in the reproduction experiment as announced by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport. Moreover, this problem was discovered in the early production stages of LG Energy Solution Nanjing plant’s Hyundai Motors-only production line, which has already been corrected.

In addition, it has been confirmed that Hyundai Motors’ misapplication of the BMS charging map was caused by their incorrect application of fast charging logic, proposed by LG Energy Solution, to the BMS. We will be cooperating with the relevant authorities to discover whether this had any connection to the fire.

LG Energy Solution is fully committed to further enhancing the safety in all processes, from product design to manufacturing and inspection.

Furthermore, the damage to the separator, which was proposed as a possible cause of the fire last October, has since been confirmed as unrelated by simulation test conducted by a joint investigation team.”
https://www.hyundai.com/content/hyundai ... tation.pdf says
"Replacement of all BSA(Battery System Assembly) of subject vehicles due todefective manufacturing in some of the battery cells produced by LGES at its Nanjing, China Plant"

Bolt recall 20V701000 per https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/R ... 1-2489.pdf and many many other places like https://my.chevrolet.com/how-to-support ... ltevrecall involves batteries produced in Ochang, South Korea.

Does this thread also apply for the Bolt EUV?

I noticed this AM that Alex from Alex on autos has a first drive review posted for the EUV. didn't have time to watch it, so I'll check it out after work. I'm curious to see how the legroom works out.
