GM to recall four ’12 Volts | The Detroit News

Washington — General Motors Co. said Thursday it will recall four 2012 Chevrolet Volts because of an electronic glitch that could increase the risk of a crash — the first recall of the Detroit automaker’s plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

GM says the electronic stability control may not work as intended and increase the possibility of a crash in an emergency braking incident. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries associated with this condition.

GM began contacting affected customers on June 21. A recall letter will be sent July 13 to any of the four owners who have not had their vehicles repaired by that time.

GM says the issue “was discovered in a returned warranty part of an exported Volt and led to an investigation that discovered four other vehicles that had been manufactured with a defective brake pressure modulator valve,” the automaker said.

This is the first recall for the Volt since GM began selling the vehicle in late 2010, but it issued a customer satisfaction campaign for 8,200 Volts in 2012 that wasn’t deemed a formal recall. The Volt has routinely scored as the highest or near highest in owner satisfaction surveys.
