GM Recalls Every Chevy Camaro Since 2010 : News

General Motors has recalled every Chevrolet Camaro manufactured since 2010 bringing the total number of GM vehicles recalled for a variety of reasons in 2014 to more than 16 million.

The recall affects more than 500,000 vehicles sold around the world, according to Yahoo. Like the recall of the Chevrolet Cobalt, the recall revolves around the ignition switch. The problem in both models is that heavy keys or light brushes against keys can cause the ignition switch to move, making a car that is running go to neutral or off.

The Cobalt defect has been linked to at least 13 deaths and more than 50 different accidents. Yahoo says that the Camaro recall has been definitively linked to three crashes and four injuries.

Yahoo reports that after the Cobalt ignition switch issue came to light, GM began to systematically test all the models it manufactures to see where else there may be problems. GM has told dealers not to sell the Camaro and announced plans to produce new, lighter remotes for locking the vehicle or opening its trunk.

Of the more than 500,000 recalled Camaros, around 464,000 are in the United States, according to Yahoo.

While the Camaro issue was just discovered, GM knew about the defects in the Chevrolet Cobalt for more than a decade.

More than 15 executives have been fired and an additional five have been disciplined for their roles in the cover up.

Yahoo reports that in addition to the Camaro recall, GM also announced a recall of 29,000 Saab 9-3 models because a seat belt tensioner has the potential to break.

GM also recalled 21,500 Chevrolet Sonics because of a problem with the transmission.

The last recalled model is the 2014 Buick LaCrosse because faulty wiring make it possible to operate the power windows and locks even when there is no key in the vehicle's immediate vicinity.
