One of the prongs on the portable charger got stuck in the electrical outlet. Now we are unable to charge it at home without locating an inconveniently located charging station.

I have a 2013 Chevy Volt. The other day while driving my instrument cluster went black. I couldn't see my speed, fuel, remaining battery, signal indicators. I couldn't see anything going on with the car. The main instrument cluster reports on everything. I took it to a dealership and was told, "yeah these things go often and your out of warranty". I also looked this up online and there are a lot of other Volt owners that are dealing with this. This should be a recall. GM knows they are selling a bad product. I shouldn't have to spend $1200 on a new instrument cluster every couple of years. Here is a link to some other owners with the same issue. GM-Volt.com/forum/archive/index.php/T-9451.html
