We don’t normally get involved in the recall mania that seems to be affecting new cars of late, instead leaving that up to our sister publication Motor Trend, but when it involves one of our favs, the Chevy Camaro, we will pass it along. GM is proactively recalling all current generation Camaros for an ignition switch problem similar to the ones experienced in many other GM products that have been recalled recently. Owners will receive letters shortly. The complete GM press release about the Chevy Camaro is HERE.
GM says that the Camaro switches met all engineering requirements but engineers have canvassed all of the car models that GM makes to make sure they find no issues so as to fend off any further incidents like the ones leading to the wrongful death lawsuits recently filed. They will exchange the retractable push button key that nests inside of the fob with a standard key.
GM also says that four minor crashes have been attributed to the ignition switch problem on the Chevy Camaro. Current generation Chevy Camaros include 2010 to current models.
We know there are many HOT ROD readers that own the current gen Chevy Camaros and wanted to pass this along to keep you apprised of safety as well as performance developments related to your car.
