    The recall and another Bolt fire leave owners with these big questions

    Owners of  Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles have populated social media pages with an interminable list of questions. 

    General Motors initially recalled the 2017-19 model year Bolts last November because the batteries could potentially start a fire. The recall came after at least a half dozen Bolts caught fire while parked. 

    GM thought it had a fix, but then more Bolts caught fire. So in July, GM issued a second recall on the cars. Last month, GM expanded that recall to include all Bolts it ever made through model year 2022, about 141,000 vehicles globally.

    GM has assured Bolt owners that if they follow three steps, the cars should be safe:

    • Keep the car charged to only 90%.
    • Avoid depleting the battery below 70 miles.
    • Do not park it in a garage or charge it overnight.
