Zombies hate the Chevy Cruze

Being prepared for the zombie apocalypse is serious business. You have to have all your ducks in a row. You need food, water, ammunition, and zombie splattering implements of doom. You also need the right vehicle and apparently, the correct vehicle for surviving a zombie apocalypse is the Chevy Cruze. I would expect the apocalypse vehicle to be something along the lines of a Hummer decked out with various blades and spikes.

Chevrolet Volt cleared of fire defect suspicions

Chevrolet Volt cleared of fire defect suspicions

Chevrolet's electric-powered Volt has been cleared by US federal safety investigators, with the plug-in car deemed to present no more significant fire risk than its gasoline-powered counterparts, and leaving Chevvy with the unenviable task of re-marketing the vehicle. "No discernible defect trend exists" the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said of the Volt, going on to highlight General Motors' improvements to the structure of the car and the battery cooling systems. The investigation - perhaps uncomfortably public for GM - will educate new NHTSA guidelines on dealing with electric car safety.

Earlier this week General Motors laid out a few details surrounding the fix they had set up to assure the world that their Chevrolet Volt was safe in the face of a Federal safety investigation on its flammable batteries.

A recall has not been put in place at the moment, but one may be happening in the very near future if needed.

Chevrolet Volt battery upgrade promises less fiery crashes

After federal safety regulators voiced several concerns over the hybrid vehicle Chevrolet Volt's battery, the folks at General Motors have taken action with both a steel structure and a cooling system to keep the battery from being in danger of catching fire after a crash. Of course those with eyes on the vehicle should know that it would've taking quite a severe crash to start the battery on fire in the first place, but Chevy isn't about to let regulators tell the public that their car isn't all the way safe. The investigation has been going on since November of 2011 and Chevrolet is "optimistic" these most recent changes should placate the feds.

2012 Chevrolet Sonic recalled due to missing brake pads

We're pretty certain that someone at General Motors is in a whole heap of trouble this week as its been discovered that a batch of their Chevrolet Sonic cars with missing brake pads have left the factory and were sold in kind to unsuspecting customers. While these missing pads aren't currently being rated as something so fatal that GM is recommending a total instant freak-out on the part of car owners, if you are one of those owners, you probably should bring your car in to be checked. Nothing like cruising into grandma's house for New Years and finding yourself on the other side because you brakes just… you know… aren't there.
