11.5 hours labor to find someone who knows about the car and 30 minutes under the hood?

So there's something to think about before any of you guys jump into the EV market
Virtually every dealer nationwide has fired all full time mechanics.

As an FYI, it might suck a long time after this.

Well, guess I'll end up checking it out on my own at some point. Sounded like the repair was the GM version of flex seal and duct tape anyway, so if I can find it I'm sure I can fix it

Almost makes me miss my old Festiva, now that was easy to work on!
