Loud whining during breaking or Regen
I feel it is my responsibility to tell people about my issues with my Volt's. I bought two 2012 Volts one was for my wife. We had no issues on our volts for the first 9k miles. I started hearing a whining noise coming from my car during breaking that wasn't there originally when I bought it. I bought it to the dealer and they stated it was a bearing in the drivetrain. It took weeks am several trips to the dealer before it was repaired! When I got it back it still bad the noise just a bit subdued. They stated that due to the new updated part. I was not happy! I don't like driving down the street sounding like a skill saw when I break! The volt advisor and the dealer worked out a buy back and gave me a 2013.
Well I have had my new Volt now 7 weeks and it has been to The dealer 3 times for an electric heating issue and now for the 4th time for the same bearing noise the 2012 had! I love my volt but the inconvenience is getting to me. I have to take time from my bust schedule for a $45k car that's new!
I hope anyone interested in the volt heed the warning that this may happen! On the flip side my wife's car hasn't had one issue.
I also want to make Clear that my dealer Walker Chevy has been really great on taking care of me. This is not a dealer issue, it's a manufacturer (GM) issue!
