It seems every day there is more news about negligent companies with defective vehicles, which pose serious life-threatening risks to drivers and passengers alike. It was recently announced that General Motors is scrambling yet again, after another recall was issued, this time for the 2010-2014 Chevrolet Camaro. The recall is similar in reason to the previous one regarding ignition-switch issues in small cars.

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.

What does this recall mean?  It means if you are the owner of a recalled current generation Camaro, you will be getting a new key. 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.

Customers will receive letters from GM letting them know when they can bring their car into a dealership, where the recall repairs will be performed for free and courtesy transportation will be provided as needed.
