    No; it's for an issue causing "Propulsion Reduced". Shift To Park indicates a much more severe failure in the high voltage system.

    It's showing in my App, as well. I just emailed my local (CANADIAN) dealer to see if there was any further clarity on the subject.

    You don't need to wait for the app. You can call your dealer at any time, give your VIN and they will see if there are any recalls, service campaign, etc.

    From the mychevrolet recall page:

    GM Program #:
    N162048200
    Date Issued:
    Oct 06, 2016
    Program Title:

    Reduced Propulsion Power

    Program Description:

    Certain 2016 and 2017 model year Chevrolet Volt vehicles, equipped with an automatic transmission (RPO MKV), may exhibit a condition where the driver notices a “Propulsion Power is Reduced” message in the driver information center. This condition is sometimes accompanied by the diagnostic trouble code P0A7F or a significant decrease in actual electric vehicle range. The driver may also notice the engine running at consistently higher power than normal to propel the vehicle and acceleration is slower than expected.

    Repair Description:

    Dealers are to reprogram the hybrid powertrain control module 2.

    From the looks of it, seems ALL Gen 2 Volts up to a certain build date are affected by this recall. Someone reported having a Aug '16 build date and NOT having this recall pushed to them. My '17 was built in March and got snagged in this recall.
