OK, so the good news is, as I have said all along, I have a bad battery in my Bolt.

GM is starting to apply a firmware update to resolve the charging issues on the earlier '17, '18, and some '19 Bolts. As mine is a 2018, it had the battery pack which came out of China and not the one made here in the US.

So I make my appointment with the Chevy dealership in Washington instead of Bob Grimm in Morton (the one that said my battery was fine), and they just called saying I do indeed have a bad battery pack and have already placed an order for a replacement. Sweet, this is the outcome I desired anyway. Now I don't have to go through the whole lemon law, buy back rig-a-ma-roll, and I keep my car and a new pack. He said it shouldn't take more than 7 to 10 days to get the replacement pack to the dealership and they will set me up when it arrives.

This makes me happy.

Still Unwilling To Disclose Cell Issue, GM Buys Back Some Bolt EVs insideevs.com/news/509901/gm-b

Of course...
"Most of the people who had their buyback requests accepted are from California (23) and Massachusetts (7). The highest number of customers that had their requests denied are from Illinois (5)."

Voiced by the guy that hosts Fully Charged, it is a neat video that goes over a lot of the uninformed excuses against EV's.
