50,000 Chevy Bolt EVs Recalled

General Motors has announced a recall of 50,932 2017 through 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EVs in the U.S. The problem is the chance of a fire in the high-voltage battery pack, which could occur even when the vehicle is stopped, parked, and not plugged in to charge. GM said owners should park the vehicles outside and away from houses until repairs can take place. NHTSA's report on its investigation of three vehicles that caught fire—one each from 2017, 2018, and 2019 model years—said "fire damage appeared to be concentrated in the EV battery compartment area with penetration into the passenger compartment from under the rear seat. The root cause of these fires is unknown.

High voltage plus spark and/or heat from a loose connection and combustible material adjacent = fire.

Am I up for an electric stovebolt? Only after I also become a latte' swilling, man bun wearing alleged "male" with lace on his drawers and a compulsion for apologizing for being alive and contributing to polluting the atmosphere with the CO2 I exhale! Think about how much better place the world would be of those guys would simply hold their breath for about 15 minutes!
LOL!

I am as ready for an “electric stovebolt” as I am ready to tolerate putting any modern engine in a formerly stovebolt-powered truck.

But, “to each their own”.

Great. I'm gonna have to check on the Bolt on Monday. Hopefully, it caught fire over the weekend!

Jerry, as a friend, I really must urge you to not hold back these opinions of yours and sugarcoat them so much -- bottling it up so much will be your undoing some day.

But seriously folks ... "latte' swilling, man bun wearing alleged "male" with lace on his drawers and a compulsion for apologizing for being alive" is a pretty creative, if not altogether inaccurate, a word picture ... even if you forgot to add "and who puts catsup on his vegan hotdogs"

I really love Stovebolt. It's the place where community dogs come to mark their spot. My turn.

I was thinking about my earlier post and was wondering how in the world someone (expletive) manages to punch a hole in the floor of a Tesla...then it came to me. I was travelling south on a very crowded I-75 in Florida trying to keep up with the fast moving traffic. In a nanosecond an object is bouncing on the road. No time to react. Fortunately it only takes out the fog light on my Subaru. Then I see a Winnebago pulling to the side with a short aluminum ladder dangling off the side but not yet separated from the back. Given the speed and proper angle, that ladder could have fallen off and impaled a car or maybe a Tesla battery box.
