Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

Sat Oct 02, 2021 6:44 am

Last I checked, battery replacement for a Spark was something like around fifteen thousand dollars. That's more than twice what I paid for my 2015. Seems like a pretty strong incentive not to provide warranty service. I think I read in an article somewhere that (for not sure which particular model, but not a Spark) Chevy had never had to do a warranty battery replacement, even once. Note the word "had". There's a big difference between "did" and "had". Just because they never "did" one doesn't mean they never "had" to do one. BTW, I still love my Spark. It's brilliant.

I love my spark too. That's why this situation is so upsetting to me. Like all the issues and headaches are because of the bad dealer service not because of the car.

Chevy is currently having to replace many bolt batteries due to battery fires.
