Talked to a buddy that worked for GM, a dealer will continue to work on your car regardless if you follow this recall or not. So no worries.

I'm skippin this.

I wonder if GM is aware that, with the handbrake handle next to the passenger's seat, the passenger can easily pull the handle while you're driving. I demand GM recalls all Camaro's for this issue as well. In addition, the gas and brake pedals are way too close to each other. There has to be a wall between the two to prevent a driver from pressing one instead of the other. I could go on...


This is the kind of thing that there shouldn't be a mandatory recall for. It should be a notice sent to Camaro owners to say "Hey, this could happen. Be careful. And if you want we can swap out that key for you."

Agree. Keep in mind though, mandatory or not, its your car, your choice.

Who's Ignoring The Recall and Keeping Their Switchblade

Will I'm not against safety, I would prefer to keep my switchblade key instead of getting a new key and separate fob. Anyone else?

"The knee hits the key fob turning the ignition into the off position..."

unless you're like 600 pounds with thunder thighs the size of tree trunks i can't imagine how this could possibly happen. If you can fit into your car I think you're fine.

If you go in for service, I don't think you can keep them from doing the recall.

My knee comes no where near the ignition. It's not an issue for me.

I'm wondering if the ignition will be keyed differently than the trunk release thats hidden behind the rear seat. That would make it twice as bad - separate FOB, ignition key & trunk key? Is this a possibility?

I'm going to take mine in just so I can get a free replacement key and fob since the rubber keys on one of my keyfobs has rotted out and the keys are actually about to fall out of the keyfob.

I would just as soon keep what I have, instead of the fob AND a key in my pocket!

Exactly, the switchblade key is so much better then a individual fob and seems near impossible to hit it.

As a former designer of passenger safety systems I say anyone sitting that close to the steering wheel wouldn't want the airbag deploying anyway. My Equinox has a switchblade key and is not on that list. Regardless, I will not be turning in either one.

Recall

Anyone else seen any info on GM recalling all 5th Gens due to a different ignition issue?

I've seen the stuff on Facebook but I was hoping for a more reliable source.

Anyone actually been contacted by GM yet?

Possibly, and I don't have a problem with that as long as I can still use my present key. I'll just throw the new 'panic' key in a drawer until I sell the car. But they'll likely do something to disable them.
