Chevy Malibu hit with GM’s latest sunroof recall

Chevy Malibu hit with GM’s latest sunroof recall

General Motors is the latest auto maker to recall some vehicles due to overly sensitive controls -- in this case, the problem affects the Chevrolet Malibu. The affected cars span the 2013 to 2015 model years, and are afflicted with a problem we've been seeing a crackdown on lately: controls that are too sensitive, causing a setting to be changed (in this case, the sunroof to close) with only the slightest touch. Almost 92,000 of the Malibu vehicles are affected.

Hyundai Elantras recalled: power steering troubles cited

Hyundai has revealed plans to recall approximately 263,000 of its Hyundai Elantra and Elantra Touring cars, all of them located in North America. The reason revolves around the power steering, which is prone to failure and could potentially leave drivers with a lot of difficulty turning the wheel -- a hazard should the loss happen during on-road operation. The oldest vehicles affected are of the 2008 model year, while both the 2009 and 2010 model years have also been hit.

Chevrolet commits to building Bolt EV for the everyman

Chevrolet commits to building Bolt EV for the everyman

Chevrolet will indeed make a production version of its eye-catchingly orange Bolt EV concept, the car firm has confirmed today, promising to fast-track the all-electric compact with a $30k target price. Revealed alongside the 2016 Chevrolet Bolt back at the Detroit Auto Show in January, the Bolt EV concept ditches the range-extending engine of its bigger sibling in favor of sufficient battery power for around 200 miles of range, at least according to GM's calculations. The goal is to get the jump on Tesla's Model 3, which is widely expected to make affordable pure-electric EVs not only more attainable but - importantly - more appealing, too.

Grunt versus Green: Detroit shows an auto industry torn

Grunt versus Green: Detroit shows an auto industry torn

Not everything on four wheels is created equal, and while the Detroit Auto Show had its fair share of eco-mindful cars this week, the industry still couldn’t resist some heavy duty muscle. Cars like the new Chevrolet Volt and its baby - and currently only conceptual - brother, the Bolt, showed GM isn’t giving up on plug-in hybrid and range-extended cars. Its efforts were arguably overshadowed with the reveals of Ford’s GT and Acura’s NSX, however, along with a brace of new, luxury vehicles that gave only minor nods to the environment, if at all.

Chevrolet Bolt EV tipped to take on Tesla Model 3

Chevrolet is set to reveal a second hybrid EV, the Chevrolet Bolt, in concept form at the Detroit Auto Show on Monday, insiders claims, as a pre-emptive strike against the upcoming cheaper Tesla. The Bolt - its name a nod to the existing Volt, which itself will be updated for the 2016 model year at Detroit - will reportedly cost around $30,000 and be able to run around 200 miles on a charge. Like the Volt, it will not only support being plugged-in to replenish the batteries, but have a range-extending gasoline engine onboard.

Chevrolet CrossVolt resparks hybrid crossover chatter

Chevrolet may be busy preparing the new 2016 Volt for its debut in Detroit in just a few weeks time, but the rumor mill is heaving with the renewed possibility of a companion hybrid crossover, the CrossVolt. GM's lawyers have been busy renewing the CrossVolt trademark at the USPTO, sparking again the chatter of a meatier model to use the Voltec powertrain freshly developed for its revamped hybrid. With almost five years under its belt since it revealed the Chevrolet Volt MPV5 concept shown here, however, GM's strategy for expanding on hybrids and EVs still isn't clear.

Chevrolet takes its 2016 Volt out to play in the snow

Chevrolet takes its 2016 Volt out to play in the snow

Chevrolet isn't quite ready to show us the 2016 Volt hybrid yet - that'll have to wait until the Detroit Auto Show next month - but that doesn't mean it won't tease us with the prototype undergoing cold weather testing. Expected to drive faster, for longer, and more efficiently than the current electric/gas car, the new Volt has been tearing up the snow and ice as its powertrain and chassis get put through their paces to make sure frosty conditions don't put the dampeners on how useful the eco-friendly model might be.
