GM Recalls 50,000+ Bolts

By Staff Writer November 25, 2020

GM has issued a recall of 50,932 Chevrolet Bolt vehicles for the potential of an unattended fire in the high-voltage battery pack underneath the back-seat’s bottom cushion.  The affected vehicles’ cell packs have the potential to smoke and ignite internally, which could spread to the rest of the vehicle and cause a structure fire if parked inside a garage or near a house.

These vehicles can catch fire even if they are turned off, parked, and disconnected from a charging unit.  NHTSA has confirmed five known fires with two injuries; at least one of the fires spread from the vehicle and ignited a home.  Until these recalled vehicles have been repaired, the safest place to park them is outside and away from homes.
