Re: Chevy bolt purchase at auction- how to be sure it comes with dc fast charging

Thanks Warren!

It turns out that there’s a page if you dig around that says DC Fast Charging. Not sure what is there if the car doesn’t have DC Fast charging but if I can tell from the site pictures that will be easier and more reliable.

Thanks again!😁🙏
