2018-2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV Blind Spot Detection Defect – Class Action Investigation

July 28, 2021 by  

Ahdoot Wolfson is investigating a potential class action against automaker General Motors relating to model year 2018-2020 Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles (EV), which reportedly are plagued with a defect that causes the passenger-side blind spot detection sensors/driver assist function–a critical safety feature–to activate and detect other vehicles in the blind spot that are not actually present. Publicly available documents indicate that GM has issued a technical service bulletin (TSB) for model year 2017 Bolt EVs relating to the same issue, but GM does not appear to have addressed this issue in 2018-2020 model year Bolt vehicles.  

Reports indicate that despite knowing of the defect, GM has failed to provide a repair for and eliminate the blind spot sensor defect, and to make consumers whole for losses relating to seeking related repairs. This reported defect presents a serious safety hazard for owners and lessees of the impacted Bolt vehicles and other drivers on the road, and is one that could result in injury or death. GM’s sale and lease of Chevrolet Bolt vehicles with this reported safety defect may violate consumer protection and other laws.
