Since people constantly ask...

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchVehicles

Here is the website for you to search for complaints, recalls, and TSBs about our beloved Camaros, and any others.

I am sure that this has been posted before, but I just wanted to help some of the newer members like me.

HOLY CRAP, read the first entry..

"THE CONTACT OWNS A 2010 CHEVROLET CAMARO. THE CONTACT STATED THAT THE DRIVER WAS TRAVELING OVER A TWO MILE STRETCH WHEN THE VEHICLE SUDDENLY AND RAPIDLY ACCELERATED WITHOUT WARNING. THE VEHICLE ACCELERATED TO 110 MPH AND PROCEEDED TO TRAVEL THROUGH A FOUR-WAY STOP SIGN. THE DRIVER THEN ENGAGED THE EMERGENCY BRAKE IN AN ATTEMPT TO STOP THE UNINTENDED ACCELERATION AND THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE BECAME ERRATICALLY UNCONTROLLABLE. THE VEHICLE THEN TRAVELED OVER A CURB AND CRASHED INTO THE SIDE OF A RESIDENCE. THE AIR BAGS FAILED TO DEPLOY. THE DRIVER WAS KILLED IN THE IMPACT. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT INSPECTED FOR THE CAUSE OF THE FAILURE. A POLICE REPORT WAS NOT FILED. THE FAILURE AND THE CURRENT MILEAGE WAS 22,000. THE VIN WAS NOT AVAILABLE. "

Dang. I feel like throwing it into neutral would have been the best course of action here. I'd gladly let the engine destroy itself instead of this happening. Although... This for some reason does not add up. Maybe it's true. If it is well... That sucks :/ Sounds like Toyota all over again.
