    Default GM offering loaner cars to worried Chevrolet Volt owners

    http://content.usatoday.com/communit...-volt-owners/1

    General Motors is contacting every owner of a Chevrolet Volt to assure them the extended-range electric car is safe to allay fears it could catch fire after a crash.

    In addition, GM is going to give any owner who still has concerns another GM car while the federal investigation of Volt is underway.The offer came on a conference call with reporters this morning.

    ==================================================

    The words of Charlton Heston come to mind

    I'll give you my gun when you take it from my cold, dead hands.

    Just replace the word gun with keys to my Volt

    I'll give you my keys to my Volt when you take it from my cold, dead hands.

    Yes, this is excellent service from General Motors.

    I purchased my Volt, and I will not be giving it up.

    I'm with you. Much ado about not very much, IMHO.

    You guys read some of the blog on that page? Man, I would say almost all are Volt haters but read into their posts more and you will find a very common denominator; ignorance! ...all I keep thinking about is the scene in the movie Deliverance, you know "C'mon boy now squeal like a pig" (wish I could insert the music part of that now, lol)

    To quote Mr. Al Neuman, "What, me worry?"

    I have no problems believing that the Volt is safe.
