Up To 11 Million Vehicles Affected in Volkswagen Emissions Recall

September 30, 2015

According to the most recent data released by auto manufacturer Volkswagen, nearly 11 million vehicles built by the German auto company may be subject to recalls related to the "defeat devices" installed on these models. The recall follows a violation notice issued to Volkswagen by the Environmental Protection agency this month in regards to these devices that are used to trick emission standards tests. The devices use software that runs complex algorithms during the emissions test, making diesel engines seem compliant with the law, when really this is the only time the full emission control is functional.

GM Announces Upgrades to Address Battery Fire Concerns

February 8, 2012

General Motors recently announced that they plan to upgrade the steel structure and liquid cooling system in Chevrolet Volt models to alleviate growing concerns about the Volt being prone to catching fire after severe accidents. Each Volt features a 400-pound lithium-ion battery. In some accidents, the impact has caused the coolant system for the battery to rupture, resulting in the battery becoming overheated and catching fire. After receiving complaints about the fires, the federal government performed some safety tests on the Volt. During testing in June 2011, a Volt caught fire after a crash that targeted the battery and cooling system. Another Volt caught fire in November 2011 after a government crash test, which prompted the investigation into the safety of Volt models.
