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

10311 Views 55 Replies 21 Participants Last post by  BarterBolt1
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 have asked multiple times to get the rental reimbursement details in writing and keep being told that there's nothing to worry about. It's so weird. Nothing about the rental rate or the reimbursement process in writing? Really? I'm going to incur charges in excess of $1500 each month and you can't give me that in writing? How long will it take to get reimbursed?

I don't get it.
This is so dumb, 3 year ID.4 Pro S leases can be had for half that price and it includes free charging at EA. Meaning, breakeven for GM is that it takes more than 18 months to get you battery replacement - and depends on the risk group you belong to - is probably very likely.

So a Lyft and Uber driver would qualify? :eek:

If GM rented a Tesla for me, I'll say take as long as you need for new battery. LOL
