- River Ridge Louisiana-4 miles W of New Orleans-didn't flood-water stopped 800 yards away.
Typical BS-conservatives trying to make hay out of the administrations "saving GM" THE Republicans went along with the loans-what was the choice-lose another 100,000 jobs-or take a chance and save GM?
I would have preferred they screw the banks a bit more-and frankly screw the retirees a bit- why should they have healthcare soooo much better than the rest of us?? They backed the wrong horse-extracted more from GM than GM could afford- didn't fund the healthcare -knew it was underfunded-so let them have medicare like the rest of us
GM went broke because they paid workers and retirees too much-they couldn't make money on small cars because labor costs were soooo much more that costs on TX MISS TENN-
Back to VOLT
It was NEVER meant to make $$-not this model
It is meant to get long term data on "electric cars with onboard generators that could also use the ICE ( gasoline motor or diesel)drive the wheels at higher speeds
It is the first of a whole model line of unlimited range "electric vehicles"
Once gas diesels hits $5 gallon-and battery packs drop to maybe $3000 instead of $10,000 GM currently pays- the Volt and its descendants will look pretty smart.
Nissans Leaf-all electric with a range of just 80 miles-just won't appeal to many USA folks-can't drive it to granny's or vacation
Safety?? No one has been injured in these fires-
They happened weeks after GOV crash tests when thew Volts were left with undrained battery coolant-GM states that the battery coolant is to be drained after wrecks-and these crash tests are BAD wrecks-you don't drive away from them-
The Volt is a test vehicle
If I win the Power Ball I'll buy one-alone with an XL YUKON Denali(used since I'm a cheap skate)
