DETROIT (WWJ) – General Motors is recalling the extended range electric Chevy Volt because of a 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.READ MORE: Michigan Reports 5,616 New COVID-19 Cases, 68 Deaths
