Customers are also advised to visit their local Chevy dealer to receive advanced diagnostics software. The customers are advised to limit their charging state to 90% and follow the three steps above.


The recall follows a November 2020 recall of the same nature, as the National Highway Transportation and Safety Association (NHTSA) issued a recall on Nov. 13. General Motors said 2017-2018 vehicles were most affected, but some 2019 models were also affected by the issue. The fires most often occurred when the vehicle was fully charged or near a full charge.
