has a lot more associated documents now (10, at the moment). I'm trying to work my way thru them now.
I saw a FAQ floating around before (screenshot and the posted in a private Bolt FB group). I see a a copy at https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/R ... 1-2689.pdf
but it looks like a slightly older copy with only 14 Q&A instead of 16.

, but I think people not in that group won't be able to see it. There's also a question and answer about why some '19 and all '20 Bolts aren't involved in the recall. It claims select '19 vehicles were built using cells at LG Chem's Ochang, Korea facility and they believe that's where the issue developed. And, that the verified incidents investigated so far had batteries from there.
From the above doc, there is:
Q12) Why aren’t some 2019 and all 2020 BOLT EVs involved in this recall? Is there a different battery?
A12) Select vehicles in the 2019 model year were built using battery cells produced at LG Chem’s Ochang, Korea, facility, which is where we believe the issue developed. The verified incidents investigated thus far had batteries produced at this facility. Additionally, the 2020 Bolt EV uses a different cell design than the vehicles affected by this recall, which enabled us to increase range to 259 miles.
The My Chevrolet app still shows no recalls for my specific VIN of my '19 Bolt. https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls
still shows 0 unrepaired recalls for my VIN.
