What you should do is search the forum please. This information is widely available in a number of threads and we certainly don't need another one on the go.
Don't mean to sound terse but we have a whole bunch of out of control threads.

You may also consider that if some bad thing happens and you refused the software, you may not get any satisfaction from GM by that move.
Has anyone gotten satisfaction from GM when some bad thing happens, regardless of compliance with guidance? Last I heard, those that suffered fires were told by GM to take it up with insurance. Consensus (or close or it) on the forum is that insurance won鈥檛 care.

Only as a last resort would I suffer through 3-5 years of raised insurance premiums for something GM is responsible for. While the extra insurance premiums would be cheaper than legal fees from trying to sue GM, I assume a letter from one's state's attorney general would make GM take special consideration.

Good point, I was merely noting that the software update will likely have no impact on compensation from GM or insurance. Nor will the software have any impact on your premiums after an incident.

I still have to say this. You may not get a battery on 20-22 models. Especially if this software provides enough to prevent fires.
Sorry, we will have to agree to disagree. I am not buying this. With the recall being almost completely being paid for by LG, there is no reason for GM to settle for a software only solution. Doing so would cast a permanent shadow over every single future electric vehicle GM ever makes. Everyone would just be waiting for the inevitable fires. I don't think the feds would sign off on it either. I am confident all the batteries will be replaced, eventually.
