Don’t Settle for a LemonStand Up for Your Rights
Chevy Bolt Lemons
Can’t Use Your Bolt Due to Fire Risk? Get a Refund With CA Lemon Law Firm
General Motors (GM) recently recalled every Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV ever made because the batteries in these vehicles are defective and could cause fires. Worse still, GM has not started replacing the defective batteries. The company has stated it will not replace affected batteries until it is confident it has identified the root cause of the defects.
Is the Chevy Bolt a Lemon?
Yes. Under California lemon law civil codes, also known as §1793.22 or the Tanner Consumer Protection Act, a vehicle is a “lemon” if it is defective, and the manufacturer cannot provide a solution within a reasonable amount of time or attempts. Manufacturers like GM must also repurchase or replace unsafe vehicles or those with manufacturing defects to keep dangerous vehicles off the road.
If you leased or purchased a 2017-2022 Chevy Bolt, you should be able to sell it back to GM. The company has yet to find a solution to the problem, and you do not have to drive a vehicle that isn’t safe or functional.
Did Chevy Discontinue the Bolt?
After the Chevy Bolt recalls, Chevy paused production on the Bolt. The company still plans to replace the defective batteries in model years 2017 through 2022 and release newer models at a lower price in the future.
Bolt owners can wait for repairs or replacements or ask GM to buy back their vehicles. Because Chevy Bolts are defective and unsafe, the manufacturer must accept your offer within 30 days to help remove the unsafe vehicles from the road.
Consumers are confused and cannot use their cars as originally planned.
This is unacceptable, and you should not settle for a lemon.
