It seems that all fifth Generation Chevrolet Camaro owners will be instructed to visit their local dealerships because of an issue stemming from, rather sensitively, an ignition switch issue.
The Problem: 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. The issue was discovered by GM during internal testing following the ignition switch recall earlier this year. It is the reason for at least three crashes that resulted in four minor injuries.
Number Of Vehicles Being Recalled: Approximately 511,528 Chevrolet Camaros, including the new 2014 Z/28.
The Fix: Dealers 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. The change will make the ignition key and FOB independent of each other, so that inadvertent contact with the FOB won’t move the key from the “run” position.
