2017 Volt LT complete loss of electrical power while on he road. 6 days after purchase the brakes did not work, the steering did not work. The car was rolling down the road I was not able to engage the brakes or steer. I pushed the power button while pressing the brake pedal a few times until the dashboard lights came back on and the brakes engaged but the car did not start. There was a smell of burnt electronics outside of the car near the charging port. Onstar sent a tow truck. I had the car towed to the dealer the next day. I was told that it was a manufacturer defect on the high voltage fuse attached to the lithium battery, It's been in the shop for over 2 weeks waiting for replacement parts to be shipped from the manufacturer.

This is a fatal flaw in the design of the car and should be recalled. The manufacturer said I would have to take up with the dealer. The dealer states that it would be too expensive to buy the car back and provide me with a new one free of defects there is too much paperwork involved. I filed a complaint with the attorney general, they have initiated an investigation.
