Case Closed: NHTSA Officially Halts Chevrolet Volt Battery Fire Investigation
Fuel economy fever has stricken the auto industry harder than 15th-century colonizing imperialists bearing...
The NHTSA did the right thing, and discontinued the investigation of the Volt. Chevy fixed what had to be fixed. Did Toyota ever solve the unintended acceleration problem? I don`t think there has been any conclusion in that investigation.
I think that if this were any other manufacturer other than one the government is invested in, this would still be on going. Toyota had accusations about accelerator issues that could never be duplicated but look at what happened there. The CEO had to appear before Congress. With GM it's just a quick "oh we'll fix that" and it gets swept under the rugs. Where is the media to hold them accountable?
