GM Warns Some Bolt Owners To Park Outdoors Due To Fire Risk
General Motors is telling owners of some older Chevrolet Bolts to park them outdoors and not to charge them overnight because two of the electric cars caught fire after recall repairs were made.
The company said Wednesday the request comes after two Bolts that had gotten recall repairs caught fire, one in Vermont and the other in New Jersey.
Spokesman Kevin Kelly said it covers 2017 through 2019 Bolts that were part of a group recalled earlier due to several fires in the batteries. Kelly added owners should take the steps “out of an abundance of caution.”
In November, GM recalled the electric vehicles after getting reports of battery fires.
