I assume if your car isn't on the list, it won't be in your dealer's system either. If that's the case, taking it to the dealer won't help. But, out of an abundance of caution, I would not charge over 90% until we know more.
Just out of curiosity, what is your build date? (stickier on the driver's door jamb)

Could you post for us the link to the "list" that you are referring to here please? I am referring to the recall notice list on the MyChevy page here on the internet, which does list the July recall for some fuse in my case. But nothing about the new recall.

When I had my 2017 Bolt EV lease, I charged it to 100% every time and noticed little or no degradation in the storage capacity of the battery when I returned it with 44,640 miles in September of 2019.

I decided to buy the 2019 Bolt EV at that time (actually in early August, as I was offered a good deal: $36,500 all-in, out the door) as at that time I was driving Uber full time (until I ceased in late February 2020 due to the Pandemic).

I always use the "L" setting to drive and completely drive the "one-pedal" method. But of course, when the battery is charged to 100% there can be no regenerative braking.

The newer model had more control of the setting of the maximum amount to charge: the 2017 fell back to 90% and the 2019 could be set to stop at 93% and only at home.

So, to be able to "one pedal" drive right out the door every day, mine is set to charge at home to achieve 93% at 7am each morning.

I use the timed feature because one day when it was 110 degrees here in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, I returned home at about 3pm. The charger faulted out due to the high heat.

I will check the door for the build date when I go out later.

I think i've 100% charged my 2017 twice since owning it on Jan 1, 2017. And those occasions were just before a long trip so wanted to maximize range. For maximum battery longevity, it's recommended to hover around 50% SOC, best daily charge range is 40%-75%

Me, too. I have a '19 Premier build date 5/19 with no recall notice on the App nor website.

There's a website where you can enter your vin and it will tell you if your car has been recalled for the fire issue. That's what I mean by "the list". Sorry, I don't have a link but a google search should turn it up.

Certain vehicles in the 2019 model year were built using battery cells produced at LG Chem’s Ochang, Korea, facility, which is where we believe the issue developed. The verified incidents investigated thus far had batteries produced at this facility. We've double checked your VIN within our internal systems and can confirm you don't have the recall associated to your VIN. You can check for any recalls or service related announcements on your VIN using the following website: https://my.gm.com/recalls. This site is the same one you accessed using the myChevy app. If you have any additional questions, feel free to send us an email at socialmedia@gm.com.

Is this recall related to the "First Design Battery" problem?

I post the WebAuto video here posting the concern over the "First Design Battery". Go here to see this video (go to minutes 2:40 to 5:16) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssU2mjiNi_Q

I got the recall notice (NHTSA Recall #20v701 and manufacturer Recall# N202311730). I also determined that I have a "First Design Battery" by the VIN number, according to the video above.

I am at the Chevy dealer right now for a "reprogram the hybrid propulsion control model". I received the recall notice in my email.

Hello,

Based on the information we have available at this time, we're unable to confirm if the first battery design is related to this recall as our engineers continue their investigation. A certain number of these vehicles were built with high voltage batteries produced at LG Chem’s Ochang, Korea facility. Additionally, we confirmed the verified incidents investigated thus far had batteries produced at this facility. If you'd like for us to follow up with your Chevy dealer for more details about your Bolt EV, feel free to send us an email at socialmedia@gm.com. Be sure to include "ATTN: Chevrolet | odioc | MyChevyBolt" in the subject line so we know it's you reaching out.

Wow, some Bolt owners under the recall get great GM buy-back deals!! https://www.reddit.com/r/BoltEV/comment ... the_check/

I've read about a couple of other stories, some leased where they refund the leasee all their payments (nice!) minus about 33 cents per mile use fee (that'll cut it down).

Anybody else have buy-back experiences? Could be it's only in states with strong Lemon Laws.

This person even gets a 2020 Bolt as a loaner while buyback paperwork gets together!! How does one get this kind of good treatment from GM? Do you have to be buddies with Mary Barra ( or know too much about her past, hee-hee) ???

See update at

https://insideevs.com/news/489388/gm-so ... -ev-fires/

Best outcome would be battery replacement IMO so watch Kona issue closely and see what Hyundai does
