1. Chevrolet has recalled 460 Bolt EVs to fix leaky front-left brake calipers.

    The automaker believes the calipers weren't cast properly, allowing them to leak during hard stops. Losing brake fluid is never great, but the real concern is that the caliper could eventually fracture and no-one enjoys a sudden loss of braking power.…

  2. General Motors has been sued for last month's Bolt EV recall which temporarily limits the battery's capacity to 90%, bringing the car's range down from 238 miles to roughly 214.

    The plaintiff says the software update is giving him "range anxiety" and that's only heightened by the impending cold weather months which can also limit range. Last I checked, winter was going to happen regardless of the recall and it could just be me but I'd be more anxious about the possibility of my car catching on fire than losing 14 miles of range.…

  3. A judge has granted GM's motion to dismiss one of the cases alleging the automaker should reimburse C7 Corvette owners for cracked and warped wheels.

    The lawsuit claims GM is breaching its warranty by blaming any instances of cracked wheels on owners driving habits. But the plaintiff made a few key mistakes:…

  4. General Motors is recalling roughly 68,700 Bolt EVs to temporarily limit their battery capacities hoping it'll prevent further battery fires.

    The automaker has confirmed five fires are the result of a defect inside the EV's high-voltage battery systems. The batteries contain cells from LG Chem and as they approach a 100% charged state there's an issue that can cause a short-circuit and spark a flame.

    The issue has been under investigation by the safety regulators since last month.…

  5. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administation (NHTSA) has opened a federal investigation into the 2017-2020 Bolt EV following three reports of fires while the cars were parked and unoccupied.

    All three reports seemed to have happened as the car was charging or parked with nearly a 100% charge.

    The investigation will determine if the nearly 78,000 vehicles are too dangerous to drive or park in an enclosed structure.

  6. General Motors is facing a second legal challenge for problems related to warped and cracked wheels in the C7 Corvette.

    As reported by the Detroit Free Press, the consolidated class-action lawsuit was brought by eightteen 2015-2019 C7 Corvette owners, specifically the Z06 and Grand Sport trims.

    The plaintiffs are seeking millions of dollars in reimbursements for costs related to replacing wheels that are prone to deforming and cracking without impact damage because GM opted for a cast aluminum rather that a forged wheel.…

  7. GM used heat shields that don't curve under the starters in the 5th and 6th generation Camaro, according to a new lawsuit.

    That leaves them exposed to heat and makes them completely unreliable. The plaintiff says the problem is particularly noticable on hot days or after a long drive where the engine gets hot. The car has to cool down before an owner can start it back up.

    Over time the lack of heat protection will melt the wires, damage the fuses, and create all sorts of electrical havoc to the starter's conductors.…

  8. The 8th generation Corvette has a front trunk, sometimes referred to as a frunk.

    Despite the name change the frunk is still required to have an internal release mechanism in case your kid climbs into the frunk and gets themselves locked inside.

    The Corvette does have a release mechanism but it's an electric button instead of a physical latch. And an auditor found that the button stops working once the car enters "sleep" mode which is roughly 10 minutes after the engine is shut off.…

  9. The 2021 Trailblazer has already been recalled because 19 of them are missing a tire size and tire pressure information label.

    Luckily those 19 owners don't have to go to the dealership as GM plans on sending the missing labels in the mail.
