Still Another Recall From General Motors: This Time It's the Camaro

Posted By on Sat, Jun 14, 2014 at 1:00 PM

A new problem for General Motors: Yet another recall is coming from the auto giant, this time involving the Camaro.

GM announced overnight that it is recalling nearly 512,000 Camaros, including models manufactured from 2010 through 2014.

The problem? GM says a driver's knee can bump the key and knock the switch out of the "run" position, causing an engine stall. That, in turn, disables the power steering and brakes and could cause drivers to lose control.

At least three crashes and four minor injuries have been tied to the problem. The Associated Press reports that GM "knew for more than a decade that the small-car switches were faulty, yet didn't recall them until early this year." The problem has brought federal investigations, lawsuits and a $35 million fine from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

GM also announced three other recalls on Friday, bringing the total number of vehicles recalled by the company to about 14.4 million in the U.S. and 16.5 million in North America.
