More ignition switch problems for GM cars has prompted additional recalls by the trouble plagued automaker. This time, General Motors is recalled approximately 512,000 Camaros build between 2010-2014 because it was found that the keys could be bumped by the drivers’ knees knocking the cars out of the “run” position. This could, in turn, cause the engines to stall and disable the brakes and power steering. So far, there have been 3 reported crashed and 4 minor injuries connected to this latest issue.

According to GM spokesman Alan Adler, the problem was uncovered during internal testing of ignition switches on all models, following the recall of more than 2.6 million small cars including Saturn Ion and Chevy Cobalt during the past few months. He did state, that the “Camaro switches met their specifications, unlike the other vehicles,” and that the problem with hitting the keys by accident in their case seemed to “mainly involve tall drivers who sit close to the steering column so that their knees come in contact with them.

As usual, consumers wishing to learn more can contact their local dealers or call the NHTSA at 888 327-4236.
