Battery Life after 100,000 miles


I’ve a 2013 Volt, bought new, now with 138,000 miles. I drive conservatively (cruise at 61 on freeway, and many others.). In the summertime / heat climate, I persistently present 44 to 45 mile battery vary on a full cost, and may often acquire that, or very near it earlier than the fuel engine kicks in. I’ve observed no discount within the vary on battery from when it was new. The winter vary is about 35 miles on battery.

By the way, total, that is the perfect automobile I’ve ever owned. I’ve changed the wiper blades as soon as, headlight bulbs twice, I simply had my sixth oil change and altered the transmission fluid for the primary time (and it was nonetheless fairly clear, although GM says to vary at 97,500 miles), and have put a complete of 6 alternative tires on it (after the unique 4 wore out) and I’ve about 80% tread life on the 4 tires on it now. No different repairs or upkeep have been performed, the brake pads on entrance and rear are about 75% nonetheless, and the automobile has by no means wanted a tow, emergency restore, and many others.
