Chevrolet Camaro Now Affected by Mass GM Recalls

By | June 13, 2014
While the Chevrolet Camaro managed to stay out of the headlines during the General Motors recall mess, it seems that now the iconic muscle car is being recalled. All current generation models will be affected, as GM claims that if the driver's knee were to bump the key fob, it may move out of the run position and result in a loss of power. As of right now, GM is aware of three accidents and four minor injuries related to this issue. This was found after internal testing following the ignition switch recall. "Discovering and acting on this issue quickly is an example of the new norm for product safety at GM," said Jeff Boyer, vice president of GM Global Safety. GM will reach out to all owners personally and change the Camaro key to a standard design where the key is concealed in the fob and opened at the push of a button. By making the key and fob independent of each other, it should solve the problem. The recall is expected to affect over 511,000 models from the 2010-2014 model years. But the Camaro isn't the only car that GM is just now recalling. The automaker has announced two more safety recalls and a non-compliance recall that will affect 65,121 U.S. vehicles.
