General Motors Recalling Over 500,000 Camaros for Ignition-Related Problems

GM has another big recall, now of their Chevy Camaro. It seems every day there is more news about negligent companies with defective vehicles, which pose serious threats to drivers and passengers alike. Discovered through internal testing implemented after the last recall, GM determined that drivers, if sitting too close to the steering wheel, could accidentally bump the FOB with their knee hard enough during normal operation to move the ignition out of the running position.  For this reason, GM is recalling over 500,000 Chevrolet Camaros from the 2010 to 2014 model years.  If the ignition is inadvertently turned off, the automobile can lose power, which will affect the brakes and airbag deployment.

General Motors issued a press release stating it knows of three crashes and four minor injuries as a result of the ignition problem.  GM also states that Camaro switches met its specifications, however, here they are again with a massive recall.

The company will change the Camaro key to a standard design from one in which the key is concealed in the FOB and is opened by pushing a button. What does this mean?  It means if you are the owner of a recalled current generation Camaro, you will be getting a new key.

In all cases, customers will receive letters from GM letting them know when they can bring their vehicles into a dealership, where the recall repairs will be performed free of charge, and courtesy transportation would be provided as needed.
