With the scrutiny coming at General Motors for its Chevrolet Volt battery fire issues, CEO Dan Akerson has announced that his company will offer to buy back the plug-in vehicle from
paranoid concerned owners, on top of already offering to loan out a complimentary vehicle. The vehicle is under investigation by the NHTSA for combusting after a major collision. The government agency and the company are currently working on a resolution the issue, which isn’t as much of a problem for consumers as it is for impound lots, or wherever it is that totaled vehicles end up going.
In addition, GM will not sell the Opel Ampera in Europe until the issue is resolved. Still, GM is standing by their product and wants to remind everyone that the Volt is a safe car otherwise.
