Remind me why we’re propping up GM again?


Looks like our tax dollars are being poured down the drain again. General Motors is offering to recall any Chevy Volt whose owner is concerned about the chance of fire. When I say ALL, I’m referring to the piddly 6,000 cars that have been sold in the last year. Of course, what can you expect for a car that starts at $40K? Of course, there is a federal tax credit, which amounts to taxpayers paying those 6,000 customers to buy Volts.

Apparently, several Volts have caught fire after impact testing. Not immediately, but anywhere from 7 days to 3 weeks later. GM of course is saying they don’t know what is causing it, but at the same time insists that it can’t happen immediately after impact. To me that’s like telling you I’m sick, I don’t know what disease I have, but you can’t catch it. If I were you, I’d be skeptical too.
