Chevy Volt the Facts and Myths
There is a lot of confusion circulating about the Chevy Volt. Is it a hybrid...is it a electric car... will catch fire... is it an over-priced Chevy Cruze? All of these questions are easily answered, but there seems to be a lack of consistent information about the Chevy Volt. The purpose of this video is to explain the Facts and Myths concerning the Volt. What is the most common myth? The Chevy Volt will *promptly* catch fire if it is involved in the slightest crash. The reality is that the fires began only after a the car was crashed and purposely rolled and then stored VERTICALLY for two weeks. During these TWO WEEKS the coolant leaked into the battery compartment causing the fire. I think most sane people will agree that two weeks is an ample amount of time to escape from a crash. So that is a preview of the video - if you have any questions please leave a comment and I will do my best to answer! One note - of the three vehicles that I own my auto insurance is the highest on my chevy volt.
