General Motors is telling owners of 2017-2019 Bolt EVs that were part of a recent recall not to park their vehicles inside or charge them unattended overnight after two of the vehicles caught fire.


Hopefully, Chevy can fix these older Bolt cars or buy them back before more Bolts catch on fire again.
 
Sounds like it is going to be a very expensive problem for General Motors. Not sure how many people are going to want to charge their car and keep an eye on it at all times to make sure everything is alright.

GM so far spent $800 Million dollars on Battery recalls for the Bolt according to GM Has Spent $800 Million on Chevrolet Bolt Recalls . The Bolt recalls is currently a very expensive problem for GM.
 
Wow, that is massive. I'm sure they've learnt a valuable lesson here because there is no way shareholders and the higher-ups are going to be happy if something like this happens again.

GM now need to recall their Chevy Bolts for the 2020 to 2022 model years after a 2020 Chevy Bolt caught fire, and spend an extra $1 billion dollars to fix Bolts according to GM recalls all Chevy Bolts for fire risk

I feel shareholders and higher-ups are very upset that the recall will cost an extra $1 billion because more Bolts need to be recalled. But, there is probably not another way to quickly fix this problem without spending less money.
