No Super Cruise is not an issue for me as I'm not interested in paying the premium. Plus with the traffic in this area and the crazy way folks drive I would probably rarely if ever get to use it. My biggest concern is will the vehicle have heated seats and steering wheel. Heck, if I choose to wait will that vehicle have them?
my spec sheet showed the vehicle with the heated seats and wheel options.

I just got a call from GM telling me that a software update was available for my 2020 Bolt EV LT. They then said that I would then be able to get a pack replacement when one was available and would no longer need to keep waiting for my repurchase. I thanked them for calling and that I was perfectly fine with waiting for the 22 Bolt EUV Premier I have on order to be produced once the factory is back up and running.

She then pivoted and asked if I was willing to receive one of the November EVs. I would have to go to the dealer (or another if they back out) that originally agreed to host the swap to select one from the inventory. GM would then ship it to the dealer. I said that I was willing to see what was available but if they didn't have anything that matched what I currently had on order I would rather wait. Which she said was fine.

She is now contacting the hosting dealership to confirm that they are still willing to host the swap. She will then let me know either way.

For those wondering, here's what my location, vehicle info, and timeline has been to this point:
Location: VA
Current vehicle: 2020 Bolt EV LT
Ordered vehicle: 2022 Bolt EUV Premier w/ Sun & Sound
Timeline:
10/24 called EV Concierge
10/29 submitted all requested paperwork
11/1 called by GM Repurchase Center Case Referral Specialist and given the typical three options but that if I chose a swap I could not request an EV. I pushed back and said that I wanted to swap for another EV. The specialist said that they would need to get back to me.
11/9 specialist called and said that I could order an EV. They asked if I had a dealer in mind to host the swap. I suggested my local dealer from whom I purchased my Bolt. They called back 30 min. later saying that the dealer agreed to host. I called the dealer and they asked me to configure my vehicle online and send them the Build Code. Built the vehicle and emiald the code. Fifteen minutes later I had the Order Code that I then sent to the Repurchase specialist
11/9 received email confirmation that all my documents were in order and that my vehicle order was attached ot my case. They also said that it would take 6-10 weeks before I was contacted due to the case load.
01/10 (today) got call from GM rep described above
Your model year and steps look very similar to mine. I just went to dealership last Thursday and picked a 2022 Bolt EUV Premier with Sun & Sound to replace my 2020 Bolt Premier purchased in 12/2020. I haven’t had contact back from my repurchase coordinator yet and dealer has not had any communication from the distribution lot on delivery, so that’s where I’m waiting now. I don’t expect to see anything or hear anything for 1-2 weeks based on what the other GM employee told me. But the VIN is assigned to me now…

Are you guys saying you can get a battery swap and also get the trade deal as an option? Also, why have I not received any calls or information about this except from this board? GM ugh
I had the dealer reach out to his GM EV rep and I also confirmed with my trade repurchase rep that going forward with the battery replacement would not affect my standing for the trade repurchase as I’ve already picked out a ‘22 EV. I was initially hesitant to get the work done, but considering I got two independent confirmations it wouldn’t affect the trade, I went ahead and took it in. I actually just picked it up today!

I have already begun drafting a strongly worded letter if it turns out I was misled.

Got same message from my GM rep.
Not sure it I will take the trouble to do the battery swap or not. Especially with the stories of people having a tuff time getting rentals

Was offered a EUV or A silver LT2 2022. They did not have the blue, red or silver LT1 that I preferred. The LT2 is 2600$ more.

I asked if anymore cars will pop up from the nov list or if that’s the end. The other option is to wait for the Feb prod run. I hope the dealer doesn’t tell me to take a walk


Does anyone know if all Nov Bolts have been posted? Maybe some are still awaiting quality checks. Probably not.

I haven't either but it doesn't matter for me now. When I opened the buyback request on 9/14/21, those "courtesy vehicles" in Nov 2021 hadn't been made yet. Chevrolet Bolt EV Battery Production Resumes. I just asked for the straight repurchase since GM had no other shipping BEVs in the US I could switch to.

I finally got my offer w/$ values from RVDC on 1/7/22 and submitted my acceptance today.

Anyone in here who has selected one of the November production run vehicles in repurchase swap get their vehicle yet? Wondering how long the process went after selection for you. I selected my vehicle VIN and provided to GM RVDC last week but haven’t heard back from repurchase coordinator yet. They have been the slowest part of this so far…

I checked the status of mine this past weekend they said it was at the stage where shipping needs to be coordinated with dealer. I have not followed up with the dealer yet.

That’s what I was told too. “Few weeks” is always what I hear though, and that was what I heard back in November too ;)
Yes, I know this all too well. They told me 6-10 weeks on November 17th (when I supposedly went into the queue). This would have put me around late January. When I called around Christmas they told me I was 6 weeks away. This would put me around early February. Every time I call they add on time. Haha

@Pete Blair I have a very similar car to yours - 2017 Premier, all options (except DC fast charge), 38k miles on it. I'm in NH.

I bought it used for ~$25k with 14k miles on it and was offered a ~$20k buyback.

I asked about an MSRP swap instead and was told that the usage deduction would be the same ($5k), but they would use the original MSRP of the car. Seemed like a no-brainer to go this route instead since the original MSRP was north of $43k. I built out a fully loaded 2022 EUV and will basically be paying ~$6k for it after the swap. Amazing deal in my opinion.

The only wrinkle we still have to work out is that the dealer's system built the car with a base price $1000 higher than Chevy's webpage stated. My repurchase rep said that they would be able to adjust that on their side though. Now we're just waiting for the vehicle to be built (no idea on that timeline) and the process is on pause until then.

You are getting a new build and not a November batch?

Also, GM is NOT following the NH Lemon Law in your case? Is it because you bought it used? Did your repurchase rep provide you the figures? I thought they would hesitate to answer and defer to the case workers which means you would not know the calculation for several weeks.



REPLACEMENT VEHICLE
The New Hampshire lemon law provides that a replacement vehicle must be a new
motor vehicle from the same manufacturer, if available, of comparable worth to the
same make and model, with all options and accessories and with appropriate
adjustments being allowed for any model year differences. The reasonable allowance for
use does not apply to a replacement.

I assume it's a new build because I got to pick out everything I wanted and the dealer submitted it. It may be a Nov one if the exact build I specified is in stock, I'm really not sure.

They may be following the CT lemon law instead of NH's, as I bought it used from a dealer there. I have all of the figures from the official repurchase offer. My rep from GM confirmed that the usage deduction would be the same for the MSRP swap, and he confirmed the original MSRP of the car. Is there a difference between the repurchase rep and the case worker? I'm only currently working with one person at GM, but they are the third one I've been handed off to.

I tagged a car in December. The Chevy rep told me the status was In Transit and my dealer could give me an ETA. My dealer said there was a delay and he wouldn’t see the car until the end of January or early February. We shall see.

Yeah I'm waiting to find out what the use fee will be for mine but even with a use fee taken off I should be able to get into a Bolt 2LT for a reasonable difference, maybe a 3 or 4 thousand.

Neither CT or NH allows for usage deduction.


CT REPLACEMENT
When replacing a vehicle under the Connecticut lemon law, the manufacturer must
provide a new vehicle acceptable to the consumer. The reasonable allowance for use
does not apply to a replacement.

I just got my MSRP Swap letter and it's nothing like I've ever seen. I was in a 12k/36 month lease and paid it all up front. I ordered my new EUV and has the VIN assigned.

They are giving me back my lease payments, but not doing a true MSRP swap. So if I paid 7k for the three year lease, they are just giving me that back towards a new vehicle's purchase or lease. There is also no usage deductions.

Has anyone experienced this before? This is in Texas btw
