General Motors To Reportedly Buy Back Problem-Plagued Chevrolet Bolt – Video
When life gives you lemons, you seek out the automaker for a buyback.
That’s the case here with this problem-plagued Chevrolet Bolt that’s been in and out of the shop since day one basically.
Lemon laws vary state-to-state, but in general they allow for “forced” or “voluntary” buybacks of problem cars after a certain number of unsuccessful attempts are made to fix an issue. The other course of action would be a lawsuit in court, but typically automakers step up and go the buyback route.
That’s what General Motors is reportedly doing in this case.
“This is our saga with our new Chevy Bolt EV. Hopefully your experience will differ greatly. I think we got a rare lemon. I will be calling GM on Monday to see what they will do for us. I will give them a chance to make it right before going to Lemon Law Arbitration, which is the law here in California. I’m sure GM will stand behind their product.”
And sure enough, just a couple of days later, the video uploader and owner of the problematic Bolt, stated:
“Yep. GM is buying back our original defective Bolt and we’re getting a new one — hopefully defect free.”
“GM has been awesome as has the service and sales department at Quality Chevrolet in Escondido. The service department contacted GM on my behalf and I’m getting a full refund for money spent on the car. The dealership gave me a better deal than I had before on a new one. Super Kudos to GM and Quality Chevrolet. A class act all around.”
