27 Oct Chevrolet “Chevy” Bolt Lemon Law
The Chevrolet Bolt or Chevrolet Bolt EV is an all-electric hatchback marketed by Chevrolet (colloquially “Chevy”) and manufactured by General Motors (“GM”). In 2017, the Bolt was the second best selling plug-in car in the United States. According to Wikipedia, the Bolt was named the 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year, the 2017 North American Car of the Year, and an Automobile magazine 2017 All Star – and was listed in the Time Best 25 Inventions of 2016. Unfortunately, however, this great reputation has been severely hampered due to the possibility of the Bolts’ battery pack catching fire.
If you own a Chevy Bolt, chances are you are not only aware of but extremely terrified at the prospect that it could catch on fire due to its defective batteries. To that end, you are likely complying with the manufacturer’s guidance on how you should park, charge, and use your electric vehicle to reduce the risk of Bolt fires. However, mitigating the risk of a fire is not what you bargained for. You are entitled to have a safe and reliable car. If you have leased or purchased a new or used Chevy Bolt, call the Law offices of Alisa Goukasian at 818-242-4601 to learn about your legal rights under the California lemon law. With attorneys’ fees and costs reimbursed by the manufacturer, there is no obligation to you.
