Default Chevy Volt Upgrade

We have a 2017 Chevy Volt Premier that is fueled about 50/50 with sunshine.

Last week we put 3910 miles on to got to Utah from Iowa and noticed that my wife had a valid point. The heat for your feet sucks in this car, in fact it is the worst of any car I've ever had. So I am adding heated floors to the driver's and passenger's side.

I have added heated seats before in our Prius, so I ordered the same components to do this upgrade. I will use two heat mats for both sides and will glue them down on top of the factory insulation. I will then replace the carpet and the Husky floor mats.

I will update with the performance when done. I will do the install next week and report back in a couple of weeks. I am excited about this upgrade for our Iowa winters.

The car has 156,000 miles on it and other than a 7 thousand dollar transmission replacement it has been a good car. I feel our prior Prius models were a much better car for the money but their Prime had subpar mileage range on battery alone for our needs.
