Once you see this car, maybe you think that this car is easy to handle. Maybe you think that it would be easy for you to just change the mode of the car. But this car uses a bit complex mode for you to turn on the electric mode. Maybe to prevent anything worst from happening. That’s why they put up a bit complex step for you to change the mode. What makes this 2013 Chevrolet Volt be an electric car is that they put up a battery which will make the engine still running when they are needed? Perfect for you who also want to reduce the use of the gasoline.
But Chevy have a problem. A software glitch could cause some 2013 Chevrolet Volts’ electric motors to randomly shut down. Chevy says the steering and brakes still work during these situations, but a motor shutdown is still something Volt owners will probably want to avoid.
“We have received a few reports from owners that their electric motor has temporarily stopped working, resulting from a software anomaly when their vehicle is in the delayed time and rate charge mode,” Chevy said in a statement.
The delayed charging mode allows owners to choose when their Volt will recharge its battery, instead of automatically charging right when it is plugged in. Chevy says this feature lets owners take advantage of lower electricity rates by, for example, telling the car to charge itself late at night instead of earlier in the day.
Only Volts that use the delayed charging feature are affected; Chevy reckons the total number of cars that need reprogramming is around 4,000. The company has not received any reports of crashes resulting from malfunctioning motors, so it does not consider the glitch a safety issue. Consequently, no recall is being issued.
The automaker made a few changes, including delayed charging, to the new Chevy Volt that differentiate it from the previous two model years. They also feature a larger battery pack and an “EV Hold” mode, which give the 2013 model and extra three miles of electric driving range. The Chevy Volt 2013 began showing up at dealers in late July.
So maybe you have think about getting one of this car. It is perfect for everyone who would want to have a car which will reduce the use of the gasoline. Also will make you spend less of your money on buying a gasoline. The problem is fixed, so feel the sensation of driving an electric car with this 2013 Chevrolet Volt.
