2013 Volt - Traction Battery Issue

My 2013 Volt with 89k miles had a CEL come on last week, took it to the dealer a week or so ago where they said one section of the battery needed to be replaced. Because they told me this one other time and it ended up not being true I waited for confirmation this time before posting here. I checked in with the service department today and they said that GM is sending a replacement for one section of the main traction battery. The service rep said there were bad cells, but I haven't seen that written/confirmed anywhere. He did say the battery is ordered, but it will take 3 weeks to get here. Oh, and tonight when leaving work another CEL came on stating something like "Service high voltage charging systems" and the car will not accept a charge at all.....Soooo, off to the dealership again in the morning, getting really tired of this relationship with the Volt, great car when it is working, but I have never in my life had so many issues with a vehicle.

I am currently waiting for dealership to get my replacement battery section in. My 2012 shut down after "propulsion power reduced" message and they diagnosed as bad cells/section.
My 2013 volt with 30K mostly electric miles threw a cel in mid Feb. I took it to the dealer 2/20 and found out today, mid March that the battery section is on order but I am 43 in line. The chevy volt factory rep did not know when it would ship. Do you think 3-4 weeks is to be expected?
Mine took a little over two weeks from order to installation of section #1
