It seems every day there is more news about negligent companies with defective vehicles, which pose serious life-threatening risks to drivers and passengers. While still recovering from the massive ignition switch recalls earlier this year, General Motors has issued a recall of all 2010-2014 Chevrolet Camaros for a similar reason, totaling over 500,000 cars nationwide.
Discovered during internal testing implemented after the last recall, GM determined that drivers could accidentally bump the key FOB with their knee hard enough during normal operation to move the ignition out of the running position, causing a corresponding loss of power. This means the brakes and airbags would stop working, possibly resulting in a severe crash without the protection of the standard safety gear.
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.
