Chevy Recalls More Volts Than They Actually Sold

They are recalling "around 8000" Volts for minor "structural repairs," because, as it turns out, part of the vehicle's GreenSmart technology involves catching on fire and murdering you, which turns out to have been the hit it was planned to be.

They've sold 7,671 of the short-range vehicles/rolling immolation murder-carts, so they seem to be recalling more vehicles than actually sold. I guess the rest of them are sitting in dealer lots, awaiting victims, like Christine, if Christine only had a range of 40 miles.

In other words, it's just one more damn Obama triumph.

Oh and incidentally another car Obama shoveled your money into, one not even built in the US, is being recalled for fire hazard.

Fisker Automotive is recalling its 2012 Karma because of a potential coolant leak.

The plug-in hybrid cars cost about $100,000. Fisker has sold about 50 of them and says 1,200 more are in production or waiting to be sold.

Improperly installed hose clamps in the car's battery pack could cause coolant to leak, which could start a fire. Fisker says no incidents have been reported by customers or retailers.

Looks like Obama might actually have a plan to create more jobs, in the automotive fire-fighting sector, and of course the skin reconstruction/burn ward industry.


Every day he figures out a new way to be incompetent, failing miserably in some new endeavor.

For the low price of $10 billion, he's invented the External Combustion Engine for us. He's like a Renaissance Man of Failure.
