I just picked up my 2017 volt 15 days ago and the front signal is out already. I don't believe it is covered under warranty. it would appear to be fairly easy to access trough the front fender liner. Love the car otherwise, 900km on it already and 800 plus on battery.

I'd take it to the dealer and ask them to repair your faulty light under warranty. It could be the connector, wire or something else.

It is.


And it is not fairly easy. Well the passenger side is, but the driver side, ended up dropping the bulb in the headlight assembly.... scratched up the inside of my headlight simply trying to switch the bulb. Took it to the dealer and they swapped it out fairly quick. I'd just do that if I were you.

You bought a Chevy Volt and NEVER read the warranty booklet? Ignorance isn't the manufacturer's fault!

Raymond, give the guy a break. At least he bought a Volt! Let's be charitable.:)

This is an excerpt from a Canadian GM dealer's website regarding bumper to bumper warranty

A vehicle can have over 13,000 parts so, as you can tell, a lot more is actually covered by your warranty than not! However, you should note that items with daily wear and tear are generally not part of the overall warranty, such as:

Regular, all-season or winter tires
Standard maintenance items like oil, filters, wiper blades, transmission fluids, sparkplugs, lightbulbs, batteries, etc.
Brake pads and related friction materials that wear down with use
Clutch wear components
Windshields, glass and mirrors
Shock absorbers and struts

Dealer should do this for you free of charge, whether technically under warranty or not--15 days is of course unacceptable for a brand new vehicle with such little mileage. I'm sure they'll cover it.
