Hard to believe they even sold 8000 of these pieces of junk.
General Motors will strengthen the structure around the batteries in its Volt electric cars to keep them safe during crashes, a person briefed on the matter said Thursday.
GM will ask Volt owners to return the cars to dealers for structural modifications, said the person, who did not want to be identified because GM executives plan to announce the repairs later Thursday.
The fixes are similar to a recall and involve about 8,000 Volts sold in the U.S. in the past two years. GM is making the repairs after three Volt batteries caught fire following crash tests done by federal safety regulators. The fires occurred seven days to three weeks after tests and have been blamed on a coolant leak that caused an electrical short.
Good thing these are produced by Obama’s union buddies; otherwise there might be some media hysteria like there was after the Toyota brake problems last year, which were mostly a result of driver incompetence.
The company sold 7,671 Volts last year, falling short of its goal of 10,000.
So pretty much every one in existence is being recalled.
Heckuva job, Bammy!
