Well it's been 6 months since the original battery recall.

Yesterday GM finally announced the 2019 model year has a software remedy that will restore full battery capacity and presumably reduce fire risk. The 2017 and 2018 model years are supposed to have a similar remedy available next month.

This should release the 6 months of pent up inventory from lease returns and trade-ins, possibly saturating the market and making the price plummet. I'll be keeping an eye out in the coming weeks and months for a good deal.

Prices according to CarGurus for the Bolt went from a low in Feb, to about 10% higher today.
