Not sure a spam e-mail which is nothing more than a copy of the first thing put out really constitutes communication. Just more stalling and a poor attempt at that.Yeah, just got mine as well. Looks like it arrived in my Inbox at the same time as yours.
No new info, but at least it's some form of communication.
(emphasis added)hi all
Finally Got the GM notice today here in quebec canada...a copy paste of the us version...with different contact information
This the firts time we receive info about the recall...I was aware of the recall by reading this forum and other web site...And took already action to reduce max charge to 90 and not going...Under 70 mi range
Technically, if you look at the FAQ posted by GM on the NHTSA website (https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2021/RMISC-21V650-3363.pdf) only 2017-2019 are getting complete replacements. 2020-2022 are get replaced modules and does not describe the nature of the replacement models.Despite some people's desire to feel like they are teenagers again and complain about everything, there is also a more optimistic way of looking at this email.
-They got the word that owners were expecting some communication around Labor Day. We are getting it. Doesn't contain all the answers we want, but GM can't give us answers they don't yet have.
-It does say NEW modules, which squashes the refurb rumor
-For the hyper-anxious on here: Notice the charging recommendations say "where possible". Your Bolt will not just burst into flames the second the GOM falls below 70;no need to pull over at 71 and have it towed. I think the same goes for charging to 93% when needed.
-They admitted not having all the answers, but said they plan "regular communication" as they get answers and date estimates. We don't want silence and we don't want bad/changing information. So we got what we could from them at this point.
If you liked your Bolt before the recall, and you believe the fire risk is small and that GM will take steps to lower that risk(it will never be zero) in the next year or so, then just drive it while mitigating risk to your own tolerance level
If you don't trust GM now, you won't ever trust them, even if they give you a whole new battery a month from now. Do a buyback and move on.
If you are extremely risk averse, and think your Bolt is the riskiest thing in your life; do a buyback and move on
Pick who you are and be happy.
