(KGTV) – A story generating a lot of conversation on social media claims to show a repair estimate of nearly $30,000 to replace the hybrid car battery for a Chevy Volt.
The picture is real but terribly misleading.
The $30,000 estimate was to replace the battery from a 2012 Chevy Volt.
The Volt itself is discontinued, and getting a replacement hybrid battery for a car that old from a third-party supplier is exorbitantly expensive.
The standard cost for most current hybrid batteries is $2,000 - $8,000, depending on the make and model.
