Yep, that's why I specified the down payment as well. When I get my $99/$99 2018 Bolt, I'll park it by the river. Maybe I'll carry a fire extinguisher, like I did with my old Volvo 122.
It is not a bad thought to buy one of these jailed cars on the cheap, and then park it somewhere safe and wait for GM to either fix it (increasingly doubtful) or offer compensation. The class action lawyers must be drooling.
Knowing GM, they are hoping to be able to convince the regulatory authorities that a SoC limit of e.g. 90% solves the safety issue. If that is accepted then GM negotiates with its customers for compensation for loss of 10% of battery capacity. That is likely to be expensive for GM since ~ 65% remaining capacity is considered EOL.
My guess then is either a $10k present, or a buyback.
