Let's be honest: When you test drive a vehicle, there's not really a whole lot at stake. Sure, buying a new car or truck is an important decision, but if you don't like what you feel when you're behind the wheel, you can easily move on to the next option on your list of favorites and no one really gets hurt. Well, today in Detroit, there's going to be a test drive that potentially carries a multi-billion-dollar price tag.
President Obama's automotive task force is paying a visit to Detroit today. While there, aside from meetings with Chrysler and General Motors executives and top union officials, the task force will have an opportunity to tour the Dodge Ram truck plant and test drive the Chevrolet Volt prototype. The recently formed task force has been appointed to determine if the U.S. automakers' plans for the future are indeed viable and to determine if they should receive additional aid.
