US: Volvo to extend warranty on stalling cars

Volvo has quietly reached a deal with California regulators to extend the warranty of defective throttles in about 330,000 of its vehicles that are prone to stalling in the United States, the company said Tuesday.

The Swedish car maker will extend the warranty of the ETM throttle, which can become corroded and force the car to stall or slowdown, according to internal memos obtained by The Associated Press and later confirmed by the company.

The warranty will be expanded to 200,000 miles (320,000 kilometers), or 10 years. The warranty now offers protection for up to seven years, or 70,000 miles (112,000 kilometers).

The &to=http://english.pravda.ru/comp/2002/09/10/36268.html' target=_blank>Ford Motor Co. subsidiary has reached a deal with the California Air Resources Board, which began eyeing the devices more than a year ago after a lawsuit by plaintiffs demanding that Volvo replace the devices, said Volvo spokesman Don Johnston.

"We've finally agreed with CARB," Johnston told the AP on Tuesday.

The deal would also reimburse consumers who have paid as much as $1,000 (Ђ857) to have the part replaced. However, the deal does not trigger a recall. It only provides motorists with a replacement, or coverage for the part's cleaning, if it fails or begins to fail. A dashboard light indicates the part is becoming defective, Johnston said.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
