Ya, i'm not doing this. I respect GM for "trying to find a way" to say there is something wrong, but my knee is no where near my ignition, and I have no interest in an old school key.

Oh for crying out loud. Really? Just a knee jerk reaction (HA! LITERALLY!) by GM because they're under fire anyhow. BS.

Nope. Not doing it.

So far the reaction across the board everywhere has been, "How in hell does someone's knee even reach the steering column in Camaro?!"

The paranoia is starting to become ridiculous.

Yeah NOT happening! Unless it's changing to a Push-to-Start system, I will keep my flip key. That's a downgrade, so not happening.

Angry

I guess I won't be going to the dealer anymore. I don't want to change my key. That would mean that I would have to go to ebay and buy a switch blade key all over again. Why do that when I already have the key.

My only concern. If you don't go for the recall, can dealers refuse to do work on your car until its fulfilled?

You literally hit the key? How do you do that?

I only have the key on a lanyard (nothing else on it), and I"m not close, and I"m 6'

It's kind of like when a dad finds out his kid was smoking and he makes him smoke an entire carton.

"Oh, you want a recalls, we will give you freaking recalls. How about a recall for leather seats that may burn your creamy thighs. We will be replacing all leather seats with live sheep with lots of soft wool to keep your tushy cool on those hot summer days."

or

"we will replace all engines with a bowl of guacamole to reduce accidents. Our internal investigations have revealed that accidents have been reduced by 98% once the "guacamole" recall has been performed."

Wow . Like all you guys... My knee is nowhere close! There's no way I'll be doing this. But how will this work if I have to go to the dealer for something not related??

34,000 in inventory. Wow! No wonder they had to furlough the plant for three weeks this winter. That's a third of a year's worth.

The stop order is for a nutty ignition switch issue--somehow your knee can turn the key off.

I've accidentally switched off my car a year or so ago by exactly this. Moved my knee upwards to adjust and bam it was off! Took a couple of seconds to recognize why car wasn't moving, then threw it in neutral and turned it back on. Thank goodness road was empty (and it was a slight uphill so I was losing speed really fast). I'm 6"4 so my knee is pretty close to the steering column.

oy vey. I got rid of my Pontiac Solstice by trading it in toward my Camaro... One of my issues with the Solstice (which had an ignition recall) was that the ignition sometimes would not shut off. Imagine you get somewhere and can't turn your car off. Even after they "fixed it," I was afraid to go on any long trips. Solstice was "fun," but just was not me. Camaro!!!
