I started occasionally getting the Shift to Park message when turning off my car a couple months ago, which just requires a little jiggling of the shifter to go away and turn the car off. Its growing more frequent, probably happens around 25% of the time now. Does anyone know if this is covered under the Voltec warranty? Bumper to Bumper is long gone, and as I'm replacing the car in the next few months I'd hate to have an issue like this hurt resale value if it can be fixed for free, but don't want to pay more out of pocket for it than it'd hurt resale either. I called the dealership and they wouldn't give me an answer without looking at the car first, and I know first hand their diagnosis doesn't come free.

On the Gen 2 there is a TSB on this which calls for replacement of the shifter assembly (mine was covered under the B2B). I assume the issue (malfunctioning shift solenoid switch) is the same but I have no idea if there is a fix for the Gen 1 or if it would require the same resolution.

Shifter assembly at least doesn't cost a whole lot (less a hundred bucks for the part online). It shouldn't affect a trade-in value much even disclosed.

My '14 ELR shifter was replaced under B2B. This is an issue with other GM cars as well not just Volt/ELR.

Our 2011 Volt is now getting the 'Shift to Park' message BUT it allows you to shut off the car.
Reading threads to see if it will eventually keep you from shutting off the car like it does on Gen 2s (like our 2016 which this happened to).

My kids just got back. They changed him $150 for diagnosing this well*known problem and had him prepay for the part.

Overall ~$575+tax for this well known fix. Just letting my kid deal with this as they are an adult but pretty disappointed in GM in how this entire thing was handled for everyone.
