General Motors (GM) issued a second recall of 2017-2019 Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles (EVs) due to fire risks associated with “defective battery modules” after two fires were reported.

The first recall was issued for the vehicles in November because of fire risks, but a software update aimed at solving the issue seems to proved ineffective as one of two vehicles that caught on fire had the software update, Reuters reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

In a statement, GM said, “experts from GM and LG have identified the simultaneous presence of two rare manufacturing defects in the same battery cell as the root cause of battery fires in certain Chevrolet Bolt EVs.”

“As a result, GM will be conducting a new recall for the previous population of Bolt EVs (2017-2019) to address the risk of battery fires in these vehicles,” GM continued.

“As part of this recall, GM will replace defective battery modules in the recall population. We will notify customers when replacement parts are ready.”

Chevy Electric tweeted Friday, “Chevrolet announced important safety information for the 2017–2019 Bolt EV today.”

  1. Someone ought to give one of these cars to bernie and aoc.

    When their cars spontaneously burst into flames, perhaps they’ll realize the green new deal isn’t all that green.

    Plus, has anyone told these two – and the rest of the green ilk – how dangerous these EV batteries are, and that when they’ve reached the end of their use, exactly how & where the batteries will be disposed of safely? I’m guessing bernie, aoc, et al, haven’t thought that far ahead…

  2. Burning toxic batteries and they are now in the compartment with you! Instead of behind a fire wall! Their unsafe in an accident! Hell NO would I buy one!
