Now GM is Recalling the Camaro

Recall

It's the nightmare that'll seemingly never end.

GM has just recalled the Chevrolet Camaro – every unit sold since the latest generation was launched in 2010. That’s more than 500,000 cars. The reason? You guessed it: the ignition switch. It’s not exactly the same problem that’s plagued the Saturn Ion, Chevy Cobalt, and several other models, but GM is still concerned enough to issue the recall. The official press release states that a "driver’s knee can bump the key FOB and cause the key to inadvertently move out of the 'run' position, with a corresponding reduction or loss of power."

The automaker claims to have discovered this potentially deadly issue during internal testing earlier this year, and that drivers sitting particularly close to the steering column are more at risk. So far nobody has been killed because of this, but GM states it’s aware of three crashes that resulted in four minor injuries that it believes is attributed to this issue. Camaro owners have their car key changed to a standard design from one in which the key is concealed in the FOB and is opened by pushing a button.
