The only thing that would surprise me about GM is if they ever let a quality product escape.

This only would have been a surprise had we not already heard the audio portion of the Volt video (where it's being driven around the suburban cul de sac).

Even there you could tell it was a kludged together "drivetrain" only meant to move a design mule at a walking pace.

I'd have used liquid detergent if I was them.

One thing I'd bet on: GM suddenly has strict new rules about opening the hood of concept cars in public.

Hrmmmm -

Maybe the laundry detergent is a secret ingredient. Maybe I'll try it in my hydrogen booster .

EDIT : Can anyone tell me the brand of detergent ?
