This follows many conversations with GM customer service. I originally requested a discount on my lease payment, which they said they were unable to do, then they offered a reimbursement of two lease of my payments. I suggested they should reimburse my lease payments until the problem was fixed at which point they offered a repurchase or replacement. I now need to submit info to see what exactly they will offer as a repurchase or replacement.
Hey I am also leasing an affected Bolt, since we are in the same situation, what is our best options? I haven't taken any steps yet, I didn't even know we had any recourse

I was able to speak with them and make it happen. I successfully returned my 2019 Bolt to them last week for repurchase. Feel free to ping me with any questions. They refunded all of my payments and down payment, less a fair "usage fee" for the miles that I put on the car over the past two years. I'm impressed with how they handled this and they made it very easy. I had put around 36k out of my allotted 45k on the car. The usage fee was roughly 32 or 33 cents per mile. I believe this was a standard California Lemon Law buyback - I had used one of the online lemon law calculators and the estimate was about spot on with what they offered.
Hey there, thanks for sharing your experience, I am amazed you were able to exercise that buyback option for a leased car, I am in the same situation I have a 19 lease bolt affected by the recall, I am considering calling the Bolt EV concierge tomorrow to start the process, can you share any tips during your process with me? How should I go about it, what should I know? Thanks.

Just saw this. You can send me a PM if you have any questions. Concierge was really helpful and it was an easy process for me, no real tips other than being patient yet persistent.

In Utah and they are working to buy back my 2017 Bolt EV. I want to see the final fix before I sell a car that's seen a lot of money and time sunk into modding it. They offered to give me a Equinox as a long term loaner until either they buy my car back or fix it. Problem is I'm a hair over twenty so no the loaner is probably a no-go. The other issue is that it didn't have a hitch and I've got a 400 something mile trip this weekend that requires me haul a trailer or hitch rack.
