I have a 21 Bolt Premier and was wondering if anyone with same year has had a battery exchange. If so what is the warranty and can you charge past 80%?

The warranty and charging post battery replacement will be the same for all years, 8 years or 100,000 miles from the date the battery was replaced (only applies to the battery) and no restriction on charging or discharging.

The reason I asked was the first of the week I looked into trading for a 22 and was told that it had the same battery issue. That there was a no sale order on the vehicle but I, as a Bolt owner, could trade for it.

They still cannot sell it until the battery is replaced. Being a Bolt owner makes no difference.

No I did not. Why trade and go to the bottom of the battery list. My 21 has 24k on it. When I get a new battery I get a new warranty. So the way I see it if I don’t get a new battery for another year I’ll then have what amounts to a new car.

Then you really don’t know for sure if they would have sold it to you…

He was very willing. The car was still on the assembly line and he could not give me a final price until it was delivered. The estimate made it doable and if the battery was good I would have traded.

If it was on the assembly line it would have a new battery before it got to the dealership…not the same as a dealer offering to sell you one with a bad battery on the lot just because you own a Bolt.

I was told by persons at different dealerships the battery issue has not been resolved. I can only take that to mean the batteries that have been installed are defective.

If that was true there would be a new recall. There is none.
Also about an hour ago you told someone that if a car on the lot had a new battery you would take it in a heartbeat.
