GM to idle Chevy Volt plant for 4 weeks in September, October

While GM has not confirmed the news, unnamed sources have indicated that the General Motors Hamtramck Assembly Plant that builds the Chevrolet Volt will take four weeks off starting in September and running through October – marking the second time this year where GM has paused production of the hot selling electric Chevy.

Automotive News has reported that two unnamed sources who are familiar with the matter have indicated that The Detroit Hamtramck plant will go idle starting on Monday September 17th with production expected to kick back off on October 15th. Evidently, local UAW officials notified the 1,500 workers at Hamtramck late last week that they would be getting 4 weeks of unplanned vacation starting in the middle of September.

I thought that the bailout machine was outselling all of the other cars and doing really well and stuff? Why do they keep stopping production!
