2019 Chevrolet Bolt Recalls

There have been 2 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES Recall Date: March 26, 2020
  • Summary: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2019-2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV vehicles. The door-handle cable inside the rear doors may be too long, allowing contact with the window when it is opened, possibly damaging the cable. A damaged cable may cause the rear door to open unintentionally when the rear window is opened. Additionally, it may cause the rear inside door handle to not work.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 897
  • Consequence: If the rear door opens while driving, or the door handle fails to open the rear door, there is an increased risk of injury to the rear passengers.
  • Remedy: GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear inside door-handle cables, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 11, 2020. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is A202298320.
