For those that may be unaware, all current-generation Chevrolet Camaros, built from the 2010-2014 model years, have been recalled for an ignition switch issue. As a member of the GM Zeta family, curiosity soon emerged as to whether or not other vehicles — the Holden Commodore line — would be affected in Australia. At the moment, the answer is no.
We’re not sure how long this will hold up, as the Camaro and Commodore use the same ignition system. Regardless, Holden says the 432,000 Commodore sedans, wagons and utes built since July 2006 (when the Zeta Commodore was introduced) will avoid a recall because local testing found there was not a problem, according to Drive. We’ll let you know if anything changes.
