  6. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Buybacks
    Just got off the call with GM. My thought before the latest recall was for a trade in but they confirmed I can't trade it in for another Bolt or Bolt EUV because of the recall. Got a straight buyback offer of $45,xxx CAD which I accepted. The purchase price they calculated was based on...

    2020 Bolt LT in CA w/strict lemons laws and wildfire risks. I live in an apartment community with a shared underground garage, so I have no way of parking it outside.
