In 2014, General Motors hundreds of thousands of Camaro key fobs sold with cars from 2010 to 2014. Apparently, the key fobs have to be recalled once again because somehow they never stopped selling the fobs as replacements.
The first recall was due to the possibility that the vehicle keys could turn the ignition out positions and shut off the engine. This issue contributed to 124 deaths and many more injuries, according to 2015 court filings. As a result, the key fobs were recalled.
Now, fifth generation Camaro owners have their key fobs being recalled again.
There are an estimated 10,740 Camaros are involved in the recall. The owners will be notified by GM. Owners can contact customer service at 800-222-1020 or view the NHTSA’s page for information on this recall.
