If this is discussed in another thread, please remove this thread and let me know where to post.

Will try to make this brief:

-I have an LT first week build, purchased Oct 16, made Nov, 16, delivered in Jan17.
-Happy owner, never had any issues with charging, just small infotainment stuff.
-18.5 K on car, again no issues ever...have run it low as 30 and 15 before.
-Got call from GM, they said the car sent them a message about inaccurate range/charge displaying.
-Think i read about this, on this forum, months ago about how this was an issue with first build batteries, that was fixed in later models.
-Recall someone wishing for this after many miles, well, guess that is my case.
-Told GM rep, i've never had any issue.
-They said good to hear, but....they want to inspect it, and then will replace the unit.
-No cost to me at all. Free inspection, free new battery swap!

Its like getting a whole new car after a year and a half of driving it. Anyways, glad that they are owning up to this. Probably a defect on Samsung side, since it was their batteries, and they (GM) don't want to take the hit in bad press and customer complaints.

This sounds pretty close to ideal (only thing better would be to get a fresh battery right before the warranty expires).

Also, pretty sure LG makes the batteries not Samsung ;)
Yup, LG. you are correct.

I will ask what this does to the power train warranty, forgot to ask that.

My guess is that there is zero effect on the warranty. The clock and miles will continue to tick down unaffected.
