General Motors is recalling 111,242 model year 2017-2023 Chevrolet Bolt EVs.

After a crash with seat belt pretensioner deployment, the pretensioner exhaust may ignite carpet fibers near the B-pillar, causing a fire.

A vehicle fire can increase the risk of injury.

What to do

Dealers will install metal foil at the carpet near the pretensioner exhaust, and install a pretensioner cover -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed January 30, 2023.

Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM's number for this recall is N222383790.
