Chevy Bolt Refund.
Qualifying Chevy Bolt Drivers Eligible for Refund.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely heard about the major, widespread, and serious recall issued on the Chevy Bolt for its defective high voltage battery. GM, thankfully, is taking full responsibility for this fire storm. What they are not telling everyone, however, is that many (if not all) Chevy Bolt owners and lessees may be eligible for a refund of their payments under CA’s Lemon Law. Continue reading to find out the 5 things you must know about your potential Chevy Bolt refund.
1. Every Chevy Bolt Recalled Due to Fire Risk
According to GM, “experts from GM and LG have identified the simultaneous presence of two rare manufacturing defects in the same battery cell as the root cause of battery fires in certain Chevrolet Bolt EVs. As a result, GM will be conducting a recall of Bolt EVs (2017-2022) and Bolt EUVs (2022) to address the risk of battery fires in these vehicles.”
This means literally every Chevy Bolt is part of this widespread recall. Can you believe it?
2. Chevy Bolt Drivers May Qualify for a Refund Under CA's Lemon Law
CA’s Lemon Law allows for vehicle owners and lessees to qualify for a refund if they drive a defective vehicle. Well guess what, GM is practically saying every Chevy Bolt is defective, meaning the Chevy Bolt Refund may apply to you if you bought or leased a Chevy Bolt from a CA dealer.

3. Owners and Lessees Can Qualify
CA’s Lemon Law applies equally to Chevy Bolt owners and lessees.
The large majority of our Lemon Law clients lease, rather than purchase, their vehicles. Thankfully, under California’s Lemon Law, the distinction between a leased vehicle and purchased vehicle is largely irrelevant.
If your leased vehicle is determined to be a Lemon, the manufacturer will have you surrender (give back) the car much like you would at the end the lease term. You will meet a “surrender agent,” typically a 3rd party company hired by the manufacturer, at a local dealership.
The surrender agent will do a quick inspection of the vehicle, have you sign some paperwork to transfer over the vehicle, and in most cases will give you your check on the spot. Most vehicle surrenders take less than 1 hour.

4. Pay Nothing in Legal Fees
GM is responsible for your attorney’s fees and costs. This means you pay $0. And it’s only fair right? They are the ones that sold you a Lemon, so they should be responsible for your expenses. And they are under the law.
California’s Lemon Law statute enables a Lemon vehicle owner or lessee to force the manufacturer to pay his or her attorney’s fees and costs, in addition to a California Lemon Law buyback.
Thanks to California’s Lemon Law, you get free access to a Lemon Law lawyer if your car is a Lemon.
