General Motors is doing something few if no car buyer has ever done..buy back one of their cars.

The Chevy Volt has been the subject of attention from owners after three different battery fires that occured after crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, dating back to May.   After three of the tests, the battery caught fire anywhere from a few hours to three weeks after the tests-related to damage to the powercell/battery unit and cooling tubes.  GM insists the car is safe, no fires in the “real world” have been reported from consumers; but GM understands once the news came out, consumers began to flood GM with inquiries.  GM has also offered to recall and make some safety modifications to all 6,000 plus Volts currently on the road.   GM has also asked other auto makers who build hybrids or electric cars to double their their own battery-powercell units for possible issues.
