A carbon monoxide buildup in Chevrolet Volt vehicles has led to two injuries and a recall of tens of thousands of the electric vehicles.
 General Motors is recalling more than 64,000 Chevrolet Volt vehicles over a carbon monoxide buildup issue. 

The company says it needs to update software in the vehicles made between 2011 and 2013.

Two people were reportedly injured due to carbon monoxide exposure. GM says it occurs when the vehicle is left running in electric mode. The battery dies forcing the gasoline engine to start.

Another issue with 2015 Chevrolet Trax and Buick Encore small crossover vehicles has dealers holding onto stock until a problem with the steering column can be fixed. In this case, 2,300 vehicles are affected.
