    A "couple dozen" Chevrolet Volt Owners Take Up GM's Buyback Offer

    Last week, GM's CEO Dan Akerson said in a interview with the Associated Press that the company would be willing to buy back Volts from concerned owners.

    Well some owners are taking GM up on that offer. Today, GM told The Detroit News that a "couple dozen" Volt owners have asked the company to buy back their Volts.

    "For those few who have requested repurchase, we're going to move fast" if their concerns can't be met any other way, said Greg Martin, GM spokesman.

    GM is currently working with Volt owners individually to understand their concerns and offering loaner vehicles to those owners during the NHTSA investigation.

    I am very disappointed that this Volt stuff is getting so out of hand. No one should be worried about their vehicle catching fire unless the fuel system (battery) is compromised in an accident which is pretty much an issue with any modern gasoline vehicle. Also the damage so far that has caused the battery to be damaged would in most cases total the vehicle anyway. Yes, this is an issue that GM should address. However is isn't a reason to abandon the vehicle. Once the flaw is fixed all flawed vehicles should be fitted with the redesigned battery.
