General Motors has recently issued a statement which states that the company will be implementing minor software repairs on the 2013 Chevrolet Volt and the car maker is urging the owners of these vehicles to render their utmost cooperation.
The company’s decision to implement the software repair was prompted by a lot of reports from Volt owners complaining that the electric motors of the vehicles that they have purchased temporarily stopped. Although General Motors has not received any accident or injury that was caused by this defect on the 2013 Chevrolet Volt, the US car maker has conducted an in-depth investigation and this has obtained a reliable result.
Based on the investigations that were conducted and on the statement provided by Michelle Bunker Malcho, the temporary stoppage of the Volt’s electric motor was basically caused by a software anomaly that occurred when the Volts of the complainants are in rate charge and delayed time mode.
Since the cause of the problem was already indentified, General Motors has issued an announcement that encourages the owners of 2013 Chevrolet Volt to bring their vehicles to the nearest local dealerships and have their cars’ control systems re-flashed.
