While waiting for a better fix than limiting charge to 90%, why bother getting Chevy's "temporary" preventive software change? Why not just leave "hilltop reserve"enabled until any actual fix becomes available?
Based on our investigation to date and available data from verified incidents, our analysis indicates that reducing the state of charge to 90% will provide a safety margin and mitigate the risks of further incidents. Even if customers are setting their vehicle to Hilltop Reserve and limiting their charge to 90%, we recommend that customers visit a dealership to have the interim software update completed to ensure the max charge stays at 90% until the final remedy is available in 2021.
