Volt 4-cyl

  • 32 miles
When I was purchasing the car, the salesman was demonstrating the emergency trunk safety release. When he pulled on it, the release device broke off. He told me to return after a few weeks to get a replacement. I just saw the story about Lexus having similar issues. It's easy to get into the main cabin from the trunk in the Volt, so it isn't a real safety issue, but it should be tracked since I'm sure Chevrolet uses similar devices in their other cars.
