Those who own or lease a 2017-2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV should know that a number of customer complaints regarding engine and power issues have recently emerged. The manufacturer has already issued a recall over a potential battery fire risk, urging customers to seek a recall repair. However, even customers who have obtained this repair have experienced additional issues, such as decreasing the vehicle’s range significantly and loss of propulsion power.
According to the owner of a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, the vehicle has seen a significant reduction in charging capacity since receiving the recall repair. The vehicle can only travel between 100 and 180 miles before it requires a charge—a distance far below Chevrolet’s estimate of 234 miles. Another Chevrolet customer stated that their vehicle’s overall propulsion power has fallen dramatically since receiving the recall repair, and the dashboard warning lights frequently illuminate for no discernible reason. For now, frustrated customers have yet to receive clear answers from Chevrolet about how to resolve these persistent issues.
