General Motors Recalls 500K Camaros
The Chevrolet Camaro is known for being as one of America’s most celebrated muscle cars. The Camaro was originally produced in 1966 by General Motors and has recently been redesigned and placed on a new platform resulting in its continued popularity. While the Camaro is known for its engine and speed, it has most recently been known for having a defect with the design of the ignition key and fob. The design makes the key fob susceptible to being bumped out of the run position, causing the car to be able to be accidently turned off while driving.
Chevrolet is recalling close to 512,000 Camaros due to this flaw that is similar to the highly publicized ignition problem in other Chevrolet models. Earlier reports in 2014 noted numerous injuries and thirteen recorded deaths relating to one of the largest recalls in GM’s history. Though the problem with the Camaro is not the same as the ignition problem in the previous recall, there have been injuries associated with accidents caused by the design flaw in the Camaro. Chevrolet states that the key and the key fob need to be replaced to ensure that the ignition cannot be nudged or bumped out of position while driving. This problem can occur in a range of Camaro models from 2010-2014.
Anyone with a Chevrolet Camaro within the model years of 2010-2014, should contact their Chevrolet dealer immediately to find out what they need to do to have the key fob replaced.
