Official Announcement Coming Later Today The saga continues! After some Chevy Volt battery fire issues during testing and GM offering Volt owners to buy back their cars or loan them replacements , we learn that that GM has decided to not take any chances; it is supposedly about to announce a call back of 8,000 Volt electric cars.
