    After following along with multiple threads on buybacks, I thought it could be beneficial to get some condensed data on who's performed the recall and who's pursuing and having, or not, success with the buyback path. The poll offered here has its configuration limits. Unfortunately we can't...

    Has anyone had theirs full battery pack replaced? My dealer is telling me that they will be replacing mine. I clarified if they were replacing a module or the full pack, and he responded with "full pack" If that is true, has anyone in this forum had theirs replaced on 2017 Bolt? If so, how...

    Just called the concierge line and requested details about the buyback program.

    I experienced something unusual and like to know if anyone else is experiencing the same thing. Background: I had always used the Hilltop Reserve (HTR) when charging my 2017 Bolt and got 190 miles out of each charge every time. I had also always got 4.1 miles driving out of each kWh. What's...

    Hello All, I need your helps guys and gals. My family and I purchased a 2017 Bolt from a Chevy dealership on 12-16 and did not know about the active recall. They did not disclose that and did not even perform the temp software update. Upon further investigation there is still an active sale...

    Hi all, this is my first post here (I hope this is the right section to ask). I'm in the market for a new vehicle and very seriously considering a 2017 Chevy Bolt. There are several 2017 Bolts available near me with 20-30k miles within my $15k budget. I've been researching a lot on this site and...

    All... A bit of good news... I wasn't sure if this comment should be under charging, or software, or general, but I'll post it here. tl/dr - the recall temporary patch by GM seems to improve TOU charging. BACKGROUND: I brought my 2017 down to Gulf Breeze FL (near Pensacola) to what we...

    After months of dilly-dallying I had my Chevy Bolt 2018 (1.5 year old) sent to the dealer to fix a recall issue. It's been 2 weeks since the fix. The car doesn't show more than 185-190 miles of average range on a full charge. It used to hover between 210 (winter) and 230 (summer) miles. There's...
