An estimated 64,000 Chevrolet Volts are being recalled by its manufacturer due to high levels of carbon monoxide emissions that have harmed several users, tirebusiness.com reported on March 13.
General Motors Co (GM) reports that the recall was issued to address a problem with excessive carbon monoxide emitted from 2011-2013 models of Volts Hybrid vehicles. Carbon monoxide may build up in enclosed spaces if operators leave the vehicle running in gas mode, instead of electric mode. The automaker said that they are aware of two injury complaints due to the problem. GM dealers will update the vehicle’s software to limit the idling period of Volt vehicles to fix the problem.
