GM Issues 2nd Bolt Recall, Batteries Causing Fires
General Motors announced on Friday they are recalling several Chevrolet Bolts for a second time.
69,000 Bolts worldwide from 2017, 2018 and part of the 2019 model years are being recalled.
Bolts are having persistent battery problems that are causing the electric car to catch on fire.
GM says that until repairs are done owners should park their cars outdoors. They also say that Bolts should not be charged overnight and owners should limit charging to 90% of battery capacity. But not deplete batteries below 70 miles of range.
The second recall comes after two Bolts, that had been fixed under a previous recall, caught fire.
GM says they are still working on repairs but it’s likely that battery parts will need to be replaced.
