IF they have the tool, you should be able to get in and have it done while you stand there. It's not that big of a deal to do.

My dealership had to do so many of them, the "special tool" broke, and they're waiting on a new one.
The tool to punch out the roll pin? LOL I just used a small precision screwdriver and punched my spare one out I bought off EBay...

I just came back from dealer and I signed a piece of paper, which tells GM that I decline the recall, and get to keep my old switchblade keys.

My car has been transported to my dealer but I have to still wait on the keys. I just go by and visit the showroom floor to take a look at it and hear how many people have asked to buy it.

I wish GM would come up with an upgrade kit for the FOB. I did the same thing on my 911 a few years back.. I posted a link of how it was done..

How long did this process take? I'm about to buy a Camaro in the Greensboro area, but they will not release the car sale until they ship the part to my dealership?

That would be nice if they offered that option. Not that you can't buy one, but who should have to with a new car!

By that logic, why should anybody even contemplate spending $2000 or more for new tires and wheels for a brand-new car? Or come up with a list of things you want to change even before taking delivery?


Seriously, if you don't like Chevy's "fix" for this, just modify that just like you would with wheels, or a tune, or tint, or . . .

Had my car in for the "overly paranoid" 1500 mile engine and diff oil change, and they told me about the recall. I told them I didn't want to refuse it just yet, but didn't want it done either. He told me that was okay, and deleted it off my record so it never shows up again.

I actually might get it done on one key ("oops, I lost the other!! Sorry!"), or buy a couple off EBAY and have them cut and programmed, so essentially have 4 sets of keys. Not sure. Just didn't want to make up my mind just yet.

I think, like most, I'm over-thinking this whole thing...

It's not me feeling that way, I'm keeping my original fob/key.
I'm talking about the people who are buying a brand new Camaro and have to deal with this recall and all the waiting, some bad stories and some satisfied.
Yes you can get a custom fob, but this isn't the subject.
Besides, modifying exterior parts is all in the persons interest of how they want there Camaro to look and ride.

I guess what I just can't see is how there's any difference between changing something on the car because you want something different and modifying this key/fob because you want something about them changed from what Chevy wants to give you. In this case, adding a little light to the key might just be able to turn this recall (that few seem to want) into something unexpected and actually useful. What's not to like?

I'd hate to be afraid to modify things to suit me better . . . and "things" covers more than just the cars I happen to own.

I agree, your probably right, but of course a lot has to do with $, but don't it seem like everything is...
I'm a gear head, I didn't have the car a month before I installed the headers (whole exhaust) and CAI. It's all what you enjoy doing.
GM is a large car manufacturer, you never know, maybe they will offer a few different options.............

2010+ Camaro ingnition key recall, WHAT A JOKE!!!

I heard about this recall and at first thought, it sounded pretty damn silly to me.

Today, I just happened to remember the recall as I was driving my 2010 SSRS around and I wanted to see if I could hit the ignition key with my knee to turn it off while I was driving.

In all honesty, I wanted to simply see if I could even touch the key with my knee. Simply put, it was physically IMPOSSIBLE for me to tough the ignition key with my knee with my seat in the proper position and with the steering wheel in the proper location.

Now, if I raised the steering wheel up as high as possible and moved my seat forward about three times farther they it should be for proper position to drive, I could JUST touch the key with my knee.

Sitting in a parking lot, I TRIED to turn the ignition off with my knee..... I could not do it.

I see this as a non issue. I dropped my car off at our local dealership who asked me to bring it in for their annual car show and I was talking to some friends of mine that are salemen at the dealership and we started talking about this recall. They got on their computers and showed me some youtube videos of some FOOLS hanging their legs over the steering wheel and then freaking out when the ignition turned off.

My point, we can not prevent STUPID but unfortunately these days, the STUPID have all the power. 20-30-40 years ago, we would tell them, "Hey, DUMD ASS!! Drive like you should you FOOL!!"

Now we recall everything for a problem that only exists for STUPID PEOPLE that have no idea how to drive.

Now I am not saying that there is not a problem if you have 5 lbs of crap hanging off your ignition key but again, this is common sense, take the crap off your key, problem solved.

Educate every sells person that sells GM cars to tell customers that they should not put things on their keys, problem solved.

Just amazing how we try to recall and protect STUPID people from themselves when that is truly IMPOSSIBLE.

Sorry for the rant, just sick of people not using the space between their ears anymore, to much of that going on these days.

Other then that have a great weekend!!!

They have 60 days from the announcement of the recall to send out the letters.
