Chevrolet Volt Catch On Fire, Still Top Rated From Consumer Reports
This is a very interesting world that we live in right now, on one end you have people complaining that the Chevy Volt catches on fire and on the other you have Consumer Report's newest issue with the Chevrolet Volt having the highest in customer satisfaction. Seems like the two would contradict them self doesn't it? Well here's the break down, back in May during a side impact test performed by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) the battery on the Volt was damaged, however it wasn't until several months later that it caught fire in their testing facility. The news has hyped this up much more than what it really is and Chevrolet is offering a loner vehicle to any Volt owners that are concerned about the situation. So far only 33 people have taken Chevrolet on that offer.
