A couple of hours ago my dealer in Denver informed me that GM has ordered a new stop sale of the bolt as of today. I had made a deal on a 2022 EUV that was going to be delivered on July 5th.
On that note, we used to FANG or FAANG stocks (Facebook, Apple or Amazon, Netflix, Google). Now that FB has become META, we have finally have this:Someone once asked me if I was into MAGA, and I thought they were talking about Japanese anime or something.
It's stupid. Very few of us are lucky, we're just less screwed. If your car was new when this all went down you didn't have any time driving the great Bolt at full capacity and the 'compensation' reflects that.Y’all are getting so lucky. Wish I’d have picked up a new Bolt for $23k and then given a new battery.
I'm still waiting for GM to provide me with some sort of compensation. A new battery doesn't provide me with anything, as it will have the same range my original battery had. I'm dealing with an 80% charge limitation to be allowed to park and charge indoors. GM hasn't given as much as a nickel for any of it.and the 'compensation' reflects that.
Yeah yeah I meant him plural (who didn't have a '21/'22 bought in August) and totally screwed that up heh.(Should we tell him?)
I'm super curious where you guys end up. This could exceed the VW deal as a definite upper end of possibilities. I do believe the awards there weren't punitive, the punitive part of the entire deal we see manifested before us in the form of Electrify America. VW people ultimately had a completely functioning car in the end. Your day to day wasn't impacted, only your wallet (less gas mileage, less performing car for the dollar). Here, this is different. The actual impact it's had on peoples lives and all those angry people like me who are going to choose to fight instead of just be like, "whatever, I'm out, who cares"?I'm still waiting for GM to provide me with some sort of compensation.

I like the Bolt I bought used several years ago. It's a great EV! And at a bargain price!...- regardless of new batteries, swaps or the deals. It's still a Bolt. Now the cheapest EV on Earth. That is not what I signed up for.
I wonder if it's the normal shutdown for the MY changeover. Production of MY 2023 Bolts is set to begin July 21st. This seems a bit soon though since the car is essentially unchanged.From my dealer just now:
GM stopped production of the Chevrolet Bolt and Blazer and the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 Blackwing.
No reason given. No word if, or when, production will restart.
So, it appears it is not a Stop Sale, per se.
