GM not paying for Battery Recall !!! News

Just heard that GM is, well, not paying much for the Bolt battery replacments. Just $100 million dollars, out of the total $2,000 million dollars (2 billion dollars) cost, so that's 100/2000 = 5% of the cost. LG pays for 95% of the massive cost. This means GM can proceed with current profits from pi...

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

I went to the tesla.com web site, and clicked "order now". Wondered about that, so I went to tesla.com. ......... Tesla pulls some weird shee-at on their website when it comes to pricing. The Tesla Model 3 is still a great deal at it's cheapest base price, no doubt though. I see a strange...

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

He did say "Tesla Model 3", not "model S". I just checked, and the "standard range plus" model 3 is a tad over $30K (30,690), and not $65K. I just checked, and the Tesla Model 3 "standard range plus", their cheapest one, has a $38k MSRP. Are you saying you ca...

Re: RECALL

Has anyone heard how many cars caught on fire? 5 out of 69,000 worldwide .. Seems only the Korean made batteries are the issue. The latter half of the 2019 model year up to present day are not under the recall, as they have American made batteries. That's not many, about 1 in 11,000 odds, and about...

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

One more thing to add about the JD Power GM Authority statements on the Bolt: They say the Tesla Model 3 isn't "mass market" like the Bolt or Niro or Leaf is, so they didn't include it in the graph, even though the Model3 scored much higher than any of the others. Now, the Model 3 sold abo...

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

How many Bolts are being bought back? Seems like a lot. GM keeps secrets though. People like their Bolts, but the Niro spanks it: https://i.imgur.com/rlneDVx.jpg " The Tesla Model S and Model 3 were the top ranked premium EVs with scores of 798 and 790, respectively." https://gmauthority.c...

Re: RECALL

thanks for your insight, @charge. I wasn't aware of problems with Ford Focus elec. I did a quick search and see that they had some issues with the pinion shaft. Did they have other issues ? The Focus had no big battery issues for the most part (LG Chem). ...........The pinion shaft recall wasn't to...

Re: RECALL

For some reason the buybacks vary from state to state. People have speculated it's because of lemon laws, even though no one has made a claim under a lemon law AFAIK. It seems that Chevy is using each state's lemon laws to determine how much to pay for the buy back. My state has weak lemon laws and...

Re: RECALL

Lemon Laws have nothing to do with the Buy-Backs. A Lemon Law needs to have a bunch of repair attempts with no solution. That's not happening here. ..... When a Bolt is on fire, it simply gets replaced under warranty, & any other burned structures handled by GM in a settlement. Only 5 (1 in 10,0...

Re: RECALL

i think GM is going out of their way to keep customers happy Sounds good. About the time you wrote that, I caught this from Electrek: " A pivotal point for GM ...... GM is at a very fragile point in its history right now. The company just announced its refreshed Bolt EV, and brand new Bolt EUV...
