The latest article we've found about the Chevrolet Volt/NHTSA crash test fire incident mentions a word we've not heard uttered before: recall.

GM is obviously trying to figure out what caused the post-crash fire. That's not all that's happening. According to a memo posted to, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating weld points near the crashed Volt's battery to try and understand if a damaged pack can somehow affect these welded areas. Whether or not NHTSA will use the information gleaned here to propose a recall is a question without an answer right now, but that doesn't mean we can't speculate. Thus, after the jump, we've put up two polls. The questions are similar, but ask quite different things. What do you think?

Is the Chevy Volt going to be recalled?
Yes 1 (50.0%)
No 1 (50.0%)

Should the Chevy Volt be recalled?
Yes 1 (50.0%)
No 1 (50.0%)
