Cost to Replace Main Battery?

18302 Views 16 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  Lallen1
A couple weeks ago, while transitioning from battery to ICE on the highway, the ICE failed to come on (plenty of gas) and my 2013 Volt went into reduced power mode. Long story short, it never ran again. Dealer said total battery failure when checking all three modules. Car has 107K so Chevy refused to assist on replacement costs ($10,000). Regional service manager apparently got no joy from "Chevy HQ". Car value is now zero. Do I have any options? I love the car...

Ask another dealer. $10k is very high. $4500 or so would be reasonable. I think they are looking for an extra $5k jackpot.

Also, all three battery sections going bad? That's like being hit by by a meteor. I'd want a second opinion on that too.

Also see this thread on battery replacement and costs:
I'm wondering if I need to trade this out before I'm stuck with another failure after 100K miles.
That would be an over reaction. Occasionally a part does fail.

My Volt has 95k miles on it. No issues. The batteries were tested to 250k miles.
