Vehicles Affected: Approximately 464,712 model-year 2010-14 Chevrolet Camaros – all current-generation models of the car are affected
The Problem: General Motors is reporting that the driver's knee could bump the key fob, causing the key to move out of the Run position. This could lead to a reduction or loss of power. GM is aware of three crashes and four injuries related to the issue.
The automaker said the Camaro's ignition switch meets all engineering specifications and this issue is unrelated to the ignition switch recall affecting the Chevrolet Cobalt and several of GM's other compact cars.
The Fix: GM is changing the key's design; the change will make the ignition key and fob independent of each other.
What Owners Should Do: The automaker has not yet provided an owner notification schedule; affected owners will receive a recall letter. GM says courtesy transportation will be provided if needed. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 for more info.
