This NYT article mostly focuses on news already reported here i.e. potential causes and fixes related to damaged battery fires. However, further down in the article is a reference to a CNW Research marketing survey that found consumers likely to consider buying a Volt had declined from 3.4% to 1.7% between July and early December. The survey found that even among EV enthusiasts interest in the Volt was dropping off because of the battery fire controversy. The article also has an interesting interview with a Volt owner who is negotiating with GM to buy back his Volt. Worth a read for those following this issue.
