Of course, we all know that with the introduction of new tech come complications too. And for the Volt, these complications came in the form of a battery that could be hindered unstable in the event of an accident. In the interest of drivers around the world, both Chevrolet and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched an investigation into finding a fix for the issue.
now, we're proud to say that the investigation has, in fact, turned up a solution that the American automaker has already began to implement. Owners of the Volt can expect to hear from Chevrolet in the near future about bringing their Volt in to receive the fix. Meanwhile, the American automaker has worked this fix into its production process, ensuring that each Volt that rolls off the assembly line in the future.
