Electric Cars Are All The Rage These Days, But Floridians Should Know Something About This One
Although the United States pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord, many Americans still believe the ever-changing climate is an urgent matter that needs to be addressed now. Some things are irreversible, but they do what they can to prevent the problem from getting worse. After all, there are higher temperatures and melting ice caps today along with storms appearing to get stronger and stronger each year.
Some people choose to do their part by reducing their carbon footprint. They recycle, get solar panels installed on their home to reduce energy consumption, and take measures to conserve water. Other individuals decide to abandon their vehicles altogether to cut down on emissions being put into the atmosphere. They walk or ride their bicycles to get from one place to the next. However, some folks, even those here in Florida, aren't quite ready to ditch their cars entirely. Therefore, they purchase electric or hybrid models to get around town.
Who can blame them really? Aside from merely helping out the environment, these autos don't require gas, or if they do, they do not burn through it quickly. Thus, purchasing an electric/hybrid unit can lighten the load on the owner's pocketbook or wallet too. Fuel prices are high enough already, and with the heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran, it is anybody's guess as to if they will increase further. Still, though, there is one car on the market that can be dangerous. Read ahead to learn about the issue.
Be Safe By Knowing About This Volkswagen Recall
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. is expected to mail notice forms about a problem to owners of certain 2019 Audi e-tron vehicles. The remedy parts will not become available until sometime in August though. 1,646 of the cars are involved in recall number 93E8. Apparently, the charging socket has a faulty seal that can allow moisture to enter the high-voltage battery system. Then, a short circuit can occur, which increases the risk of fire.
Should a driver notice a warning light with the message, "Electrical system: fault," it is of the utmost importance for them to stop driving the car immediately. They should park the auto outdoors and as far away from structures as possible. Additionally, the owner should not charge the vehicle. Failing to heed this advice can lead to property damage as well as injuries such as burns.
