Update for the forum.
I was recently contacted by the NHTSA for further information on the loss of power due to the MSD.
Loss of Motive Power / Propulsion / Stallingfor the Chevrolet Bolt EV is part of ODI (Office of Defects Investigation) case 2385A. ODI's questions asked if the vehicle had been repaired or if there were ongoing defects. It seems very routine.
[Since the MSD failure at 22,000 miles, the Bolt has not had any problems. Battery capacity looks great, and due to a work assignment, I am using the car for a bi-weekly 400 mile commute.]
Any other members receive a confirmation?
It's heartening to see Federal regulators competently doing their job. I would not be surprised to see a Federally mandated recall on this one. There have been a handful of reports here alone, and that's too many for such a safety-critical part.
