BECM Failure/6+ Month Backorder (2016)

My baby is dead. It will not Start/Charge and the BECM is to blame. Dealer said they've had other BECMs on order for over six months but the chip shortage has caused a nationwide backorder.

As I need a car, what are my options? GM said it's not eligible for buyback as the bumper to bumper expired. Sell it to the dealer? Just suck it up and wait?

This is not legal advice but I believe that the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (specifically, 15 U.S. Code § 2304) requires warranty repairs to be made within a "reasonable time."

My concern about this is what happens when the Gen 2 Volts are out of warranty? GM is only required to keep spare parts around to comply with its warranty obligations. BECMs may be unobtainable in a few years.
