That your car is a 2017 model year car is of interest, which suggests that GM is now moving beyond the 2019 Korea-built battery cars (although it looks like a few such cars have not yet been moved to remedy eligibility). When did you notice the recall status change?Long time reader, but this is my first post. I got my 2017 Black LT back from Donohoo Chevrolet today, they replaced the battery. Drove it 100 miles back home to Georgia with no issues. Here are a few observations I've made about the battery replacement process.
D) The new battery feels like more than a 10% boost for a 2017, because it restarts the clock on battery degradation. Big, big difference.
Did your car have what GM probably considers "high risk" charging / discharging habits (frequent charges to 100%, frequent deep discharges)?
Also, 2017-2019 batteries apparently commonly had other quality issues, such as a range of low voltage cell groups in the 60s and 70s, that have not been reported on 2020+ cars. These probably limited many of the cars to significantly lower than nominal capacity to begin with, even without degradation (my now-repurchased 2017 car generally acted like it had 56kWh summer and 54kWh winter). So, in addition to higher (+8%) nominal pack capacity, the better quality (even cell group voltages) probably means that some 2017-2018 customers will see an even greater capacity / range increase than +8% (2019 did have an unadvertised increase in nominal capacity over 2017-2018).
