[CA] Rental car reimbursement while waiting for buyback or battery modules replacement?

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 to get to work everyday?

For those who were able to secure a rental car, how did you do it? Did GM reimburse you?

Thanks in advance!

I was offered a loaner car or rental reimbursement last week. The curveball with the loaner is my dealer does not have any. The curveball with the rental reimbursement is you need to front the rental costs plus gas. i checked my local Enterprise Car Rental for a monthly rental on a compact car = $ 1,000+ per month plus insurance plus existing car payment. That can add up if it takes GM months to replace the battery pack. I'm not sure I can front that kind of cost. This was both a verbal offer and followed up via email by my Bolt Concierge.
