  1. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I just posted this info on reddit:
  2. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    TLDR: I tried buying a used bolt and for some reason, two dealerships tried ordering a battery and now neither dealership can get the battery so I'm waiting for my car with little idea on when I may get it. This is a bit of a doozy so buckle up. I made a down payment for a used 2017 premier at...
  3. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    So I had the battery swapped on my 2017 earlier this week. Everything seemed to be going fine but I needed to charge this morning. Based on other people's reports I knew that I had to re-enable Hill Top Reserve and that was literally the first thing I did before I even left the dealership...
  4. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    All is not necessarily well in Replacement Battery Land. Received my new HV battery 5 weeks ago in my ’17 Premier. Been driving great since then, with the increased range, slower discharge rate, and a noticeable smoothness in performance. Decided to take it this weekend on a LA-to-Bay Area...
  5. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I was wondering how often others check their recall status to see if it has changed. You can select up to two responses.
  6. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I haven't posted here in awhile, so I thought I would do a little update as I recently had my battery replaced. I had some issues shortly after I purchased this car used back in July of 2020 - I had major range anxiety and turns out I had at least one bad cell, necessitating a battery module...
  7. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I was just wondering how the N212343880/N212343883 recall fix will affect the mileage of my 2018 Bolt? More, Less, about the same?
  8. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    My 2017 is in Virginia where we get temps periodically below 20F/-7C, sometimes briefly much colder. In the past we would just leave the vehicle plugged in all the time when at home in really cold or hot weather, per the manual. Now we're trying to follow the recall guidance. So interim...
  9. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Apologies if this is a redundant post. I've been paying little attention to the recall mostly because we are 2 years into a 3 year lease on our 2020, and I figured a resolution in one form or another is coming shortly. But we've just received the letter suggesting a software update, so I started...
  10. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I just received the letter from GM informing me that the recall software is available and I should make an appointment to have it installed. The letter says that "the software contains new diagnostics designed to detect specific abnormalities that might indicate a rare battery issue." MY...
  11. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    It's a 2017, appointment for new battery replacement is today, dropped it off last night and got a call this morning that the procedure has changed and in addition to having the SOC <90% and no charge for 24hrs (which I followed) the dealer called and said they have to run through a process that...
  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 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I just reached out to my dealer about the Mid-Nov software upgrade. I asked my salesman as he is a bolt owner too. He said he has heard nothing on new software but they have changed out 6 batteries already! That was good news to hear. I wanted to try and schedule a trip to get my winter wheels I...
  14. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Buybacks
    I decided to go for a buyback on my 2021 purchased in June. I really like the car for the price, but with 8’ snowbanks in our driveway in winter, it is a nonstarter to charge outside. With the unknown timeline of a fix, it makes it a nonstarter to hold onto it… So, for those who have pursued...
  15. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Can anyone corroborate InsideEV's Aug 31 article on GMs possibly upgrading the range of the replacement battery packs? Chevy Bolt Battery Fix To Increase Range By 8%, More For Older Cars
  16. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I'm going to be upfront and admit I love my Bolt despite it's flaws and the recall. When something bad happens, I try to have some fun with it. To that end, yesterday I parked next to a coworker and told him: "Don't worry that I parked next to you, my car only spontaneously combusts after...
  17. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Owners of 2017-2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV models have had to contend with a reduced driving range for many months, as GM attempted to find a remedy for a battery related fire issue that culminated with a plan to replace all battery modules. Now GM has confirmed that it's stepping up by offering a...

    99% of these may be in perfect (if degraded) working order, but 100.0% of them will be recycled. You can try to x-ray a cell or an entire battery pack to figure out whether the anode tabs are torn or the separator is folded. These defects are so small as to be completely imperceptible; imagine...
  19. 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...
  20. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Buybacks
    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. If I don't feel comfortable operating it until the recall fix is done, will GM pay for the Bolt's storage fees and my rental car...
