Hey Brian, it sounds like you've become a test pilot on an experimental land craft. Be careful out there. ; )

Proactive responses to potential problems early in the deployment process pay big dividends in credibility and customer confidence. The learnings can then migrate into other products as well. GM - and the industry - benefit.

It's not uncommon to have problems along this line in a new product, especially in one that uses so much new technology. What is uncommon is to see a manufacturer own up to it so quickly and jump to get it fixed so quickly.

That is the right thing to do- if they can take charge to avoid any damage, people will believe them. Safety #1

I'm glad that GM is working to keep the owners safe. I hope the technology keeps improving so that these "green" cars are really green.
