    My Mom has this car and the dealer has had it sitting in the back of the lot for over a month. Hood Up, Battery disconnected. She received her Corporate letter today. It says the repair wont be until 4th quarter 2023 and her dealer says it could even be 1st qtr 2024. She wants to have it towed to her garage out of the elements with the battery disconnected to eliminate the fire risk. They are trying to tell her even with the battery disconnected it could still catch fire!! Thats absolutely ludicrous!! Theres no hidden energy in that car. Its NOT a hybrid either so not other batteries onbord. The Lies these dealers come up with are unbelievable. She’s working on a buy-back right now.
