Its not easy being green, especially when it catches on fire. Yet another resounding failure of the Barack Obama, government owned, green agenda … GM is buying back Chevrolet Volts. What else could we expect from an Obama endorsed product?
General Motors will buy Chevrolet Volts back from any owner who is afraid the electric cars will catch fire, the company’s CEO said Thursday.
In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, CEO Dan Akerson insisted that the cars are safe, but said the company will purchase the Volts because it wants to keep customers happy. Three fires have broken out in Volts after side-impact crash tests done by the federal government.
Akerson said that if necessary, GM will recall the more than 6,000 Volts now on the road in the U.S. and repair them once the company and federal safety regulators figure out what caused the fires.
If its not bad enough that the Government had to bail out GM, now we are bailing out Volt owners who made the choice to buy these cars.
