General Motors Issues Second Recall of Chevy Bolt Electric Vehicles
By Attorney Terrence M. Polich
General Motors has issued a second recall of its Chevy Bolt electric vehicles due to concerns that a defect may lead to fires. A manufacturing defect in Bolts built from 2017 through 2019 increases the risk of the vehicles experiencing a fire.
There was an earlier recall issued concerning the same vehicles, which apparently did not entirely correct the problem. GM is telling Bolt owners affected by the recall to set their vehicles to a 90% state of charge limitation using Hilltop Reserve mode (for 2017-2018 models) or Target Charge Level mode (for 2019 models).
There are reports that General Motors is buying back some of these vehicles. It may be that Chevy Bolts subject to this recall will qualify for protection under the Magnuson-Moss Act or Wisconsin lemon laws. If you have been experiencing problems with your Chevy Bolt and have questions about whether it is covered under federal or state warranty enforcement statutes, give me a call. All initial consultations are free, contact our Wisconsin lemon law attorney today.
