  1. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Issues And Problems
    A friend is leasing a 2020 Bolt. I'm considering buying it when it comes off lease because I know it has been well cared for. Some questions about the free battery replacement: 1. Do leased Bolts qualify for the free replacement? 2. If I buy the car off lease, and the battery hasn't been...
  2. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Evening everyone, Over the last few weeks, I've been working on a website that allows anyone to add VINs to a database to be tracked with their status. The information is pulled directly from the Chevy API on the bolt recall page, then stored in the database. All rows are searchable with the...
  3. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Welp, the recall replacement battery on my 2017 Bolt had a nice 5 month run. I was out over the weekend when the "Propulsion Power is Reduced" warning popped up while waiting at a stop light. The car ran fine, it didn't limp home and seemed to have full propulsion power. I was able to get an...
  4. 2022+ Chevy Bolt EUV General Discussion
    Hey guys so I know this is going to be weird but I spoke to a local chevy dealer last night about buying a new 22 EUV with the pending battery replacement. They couldn’t give me much info other than its waiting for the new battery and when thats done, it can be officially sold. With gas prices...

    Hello All, Chevy replaced my battery and I got it back today. They charged the car to 100% and all seemed good. However, after going on a little trip I plugged into an L2 charger and tried to set a delayed charge. However, the car just wouldn't do it. It wanted to immediately charge no matter...
  6. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I leased a 2018 Bolt and have been paying month to month after the lease ended in Oct 2021. I can buy it for $22,600 (residual value) which I'd like to do, after it gets a new battery. Should I get the battery replaced first, then buy it? This is what GM says to do, but I wonder if in some...

    I’m finally up for the battery replacement! I want to go somewhere where they have someone who knows what they’re doing & has done the replacements. Any suggestions in the Kansas City area? I bought my Bolt in another state, & it’s too far to go back for the replacement. Thanks!

    Got my letter yesterday saying my turn has come for battery replacement. I'd love to hear from anyone who has had their packs replaced in Northern Utah-which dealer did you use and how was your experience?
  9. Charging and Batteries
    Just had my 2018 Bolt battery replaced as per Chevy.s recall. Took it home, charged to full ( overnight ) and I was surprised with 337 KM driving range in the new battery fully charged. ( the old one used to display 390 - 360 KM ) . That is quite a drop, when I call the dealer this morning I was...
  10. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Since the latest battery diagnostic software was released by GM in late 2021, I have seen some posts on this forum and elsewhere where people reported they had their battery replaced, and the diagnostic software identified an issue with the replacement battery, and a 2nd battery replacement was...
  11. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    When I asked my dealer where to get a written copy of the extended battery warranty (8 years, 100,000 miles) for the replacement battery they referred me to GM corporate and GM corporate referred me to the dealer. There was no resolution. (I thought the point of "concierge" was to take...
  12. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I have very limited technical knowledge, but from my understanding the reason that DCFC can't be added to non-DCFC Bolts is because of differences in the batteries. Would there be any chance that those of us without DCFC could have our Bolts modified to add DCFC when we get our batteries...
  13. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    When I finally take my 2020 in for the battery replacement, am I required to go back to the dealer I purchased it from? And if not, how can I find a dealer who has experienced technicians so mine won't be one of their first attempts? Is there a list of which dealers have sold the most Bolts...
