GM Recalls 64K Chevy Volt Cars Due To Possible Carbon Monoxide Risk.

When the Volt is in electric mode it’s very quiet so it’s easy for a driver to forget to shut it off and when that happens the battery drains and the gasoline generator starts and if the car is parked in the garage the fumes can get into the house. An Australian recall notice is expected for the next week following a safety bulletin being issued for 64,000 Chevrolet Volt versions of the same hybrid electric vehicle in the US overnight.

GM, +1.72% is recalling about 64,000 of its plug-in hybrid Chevrolet Volts over concerns about a buildup of carbon monoxide when a driver forgets to turn off the car. A statement from General Motors in North America said: “If the (petrol) engine runs for a long period of time within an enclosed space, such as a garage, carbon monoxide could build up.” Holden issued a record 14 recalls last year after its parent company General Motors was taken to task for covering up a recall for an ignition fault on cars dating back 10 years, which has so far been linked to at least 36 deaths in North America. GM even gave a statement to Automotive News and they said two people were injure because of this problem and that is why they have decided to recall the cars. So if your car keeps running in your garage and you forget about it, then the next time you go into your garage, it could be life threatening for you. So according to GM this software update is very necessary and you should send back your car at once so that the new software can be installed in your car.
