i'm in Texas and my dealer says the parts are ready but they need to work on my car. I just called him and asked him not to cut the keys, so i can get the car without any more delays and with the regular keyblades he said he was going to look into this.
Reading in different posts, there are several people who after signing a waiver or something similar they got the original keys.

Dealership just called me. He said the service department got the memo yesterday from GM and they went ahead and ordered everything, Hopefully just a few more days.
Sad that I can't go see transformers 4 in my new camaro, but hopefully it'll be worth the wait.
BTW mister45th, I'm in georgia and that's from youman's chevrolet in Macon.

Worst case scenario they'll upgrade you to a 2015 or 16 while you're waiting!

LOL. I sure hope it doesn't take that long to get it. I just wish I could get some kind of update from them.

New Camaro Recall - Ignition Switch System / Key Fob

If they were holding my car, I'd show up there with like detail spray and just start cleaning it. When they ask what your doing, just be like, I bought this car but you guys won't let me drive it, so I figured if at least keep it clean for myself.

Then ask them for a car cover to keep on it lol

So no more warranty repairs until I surrender my switchblade keys or sign an intergalactic, world wide indemnification to GM for all potential future disasters. If you don't sign the indemnification or surrender your switchblade keys your warranty is void. If you sign the indemnification and next owner suffers a loss due to knee hitting key you are personally liable for bent metal and blood claims which could be huge. Hmmmm???? Summary: Understand what the indemnity waiver really means before you sign it.

As soon as GM shows me that all of the newer units leaving the plant come with two sets of key fobs with empty grooves ,then I might consider taking their indemnification seriously.

This part seems simple enough to me.

You get two or more blank copies of the indemnification form now, and give your buyer the choice of signing one or waiting on the recall to get done.


You should read anything you sign before you sign it, not just this.

I needed to get a similar recall on my 2003 Cobra. The gas pedal was getting stuck on the carpet at WOT. Ford's solution was a plate screwed to the floor behind the gas pedal. I took my car in for service a couple of times and they said they had to.....I forbid them to...they gave up.

As far as this recall....I literally tried to get my knee to hit it last light in the way home from a cruise night. Even if I drastically changed my position to where I was almost unable to see out of the front window...there was still no way for me to hit it. GMs solution is really cheap. If they offered a new FOB that was just supposed to be a FOB and not my old switchblade key, I'd have no problem. $44k for a car and the solution to what they think is a problem it to break my key and put in 2 cent piece of plastic.....really.?

Instead of recalling the key fobs....GM should make all scoops and side gills functional.
