DETROIT — General Motors will recall all current generation Chevrolet Camaros because a driver’s knee can bump the key fob and cause the key to inadvertently move out of the “run” position, with a corresponding reduction or loss of power, according to a press release issued today on the company’s website.
There are 464,712 Camaros from the 2010-2014 model years in the U.S. included in the recall. Including Canada, Mexico and exports, the total recall population is 511,528.
“The issue, which may primarily affect drivers sitting close to the steering column, was discovered by GM during internal testing after the ignition-switch recall earlier this year,” the release says.
GM contends this recall is unrelated to the ignition system used in Chevrolet Cobalts and other small cars and the Camaro’s ignition meets all GM engineering specifications.
“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.
