GM “FIRE LEMON”? – Reilly v General Motors


Reilly v General Motors

In February 2017, our clients purchased a new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, from Weseloh Chevrolet in Carlsbad in San Diego County.
Our clients’ lawsuit alleges the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt Vehicle was delivered to them with a serious safety issue, a defective high voltage battery system carrying the risk of fire.
Their complaint alleges General Motors is aware of this safety defect and has even issued a recall because of the serious risk of the Chevy Bolt catching fire. Our clients have taken the 2017 Bolt EV to General Motors’ authorized repair facility for repairs of this defect on multiple occasions and General Motors has failed to repair the defect. In fact, GM’s repair facility has had the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV for over 4 months and informed our clients there is no fix for the defective high voltage battery system.
Our clients came to the Auto Fraud Legal Center for help. Our firm filed suit to have GM repurchase our clients’ 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, and return their money.
