Trying to buy a new 2020 Bolt now for the boss. Just talked to a dealer in IA that states there is an open recall for the trunk latch and NO dealers are allowed to sell Bolts at this time.

The crazy thing is I'm talking to perhaps 5 other local dealers and not one has mentioned this.

Is he mistaken?

I asked him to confirm. He says he is 110% positive. Just came out on Friday. Says no dealer in the country can sell a new 2020 Bolt right now.
