No thanks. They won't be getting my key back.

I had my 2012 in last week for the dealer to replace the torque converter, which they did, without mention of the key issue. This week it went back in because of a rattle, which turned out to be the O2 sensor that they didn't tighten property. This time they mentioned the key issue and I said that I'd like to opt out. When I picked up the Camaro later that day, no mention of the key. He handed me my original keyfob and said it's out there. No mention of the key issue. No forms signed. Great service.

For those concerned about "losing" their switchblade if the recall was forced upon them... Ebay seems to have lots of replacements. I haven't tried one, but they look legit.

I'm not sure if this was mentioned but the real solution to this problem should be for people to purchase a vehicle that they can actually fit in without having their knee hit the keyfob. I've sat in numerous Camaros when I was shopping for one and never had this problem. If you have to pull your seat so far up that your knee hits it then don't buy it. My wife is short and we had to wait for the new Equinox to come out so she could fit properly in it. In the previous models her knees would hit the lower part of the dash below the steering wheel. Hence, we didn't buy that model.

I picked up my car Friday and while I don't care what the key looks like, the fob hits my knee when shifting. I ordered a set of blanks off of ebay and hope the dealer can copy them, if not them then someone else. I'll keep you posted.

I bought 2 off ebay for $45 (for both) cost me $60 to have them cut because of the type of cutting machine required.

programming can be done by you, it's very simple.. I now have 4 switchblade keys for my Camaro, I also bought 2 blank inserts so when the dealer does the recall I will have 2 switchblade keys and 2 non-switchblade and the fobs will at least not be empty on the sides..

I will never use the non-switchblade key except possibly for valet or my detailer..

Forced upon them?

Did I miss something? haha

There is no way they can force this upon us.

Sorry, I know I can read thru the 51 pages of this thread, but figure this may be quicker. I was told that the ignition is on back order and eta is approx 3 weeks. The dealer says they can not give me a definitive date due to the shitstorm this has caused.
What's the typical turn around anyone has experienced?

The ignition has nothing to do with the recall, it's the key. All they need are the parts for the "butt" end, and the tool to remove the key from the FOB.

The only tool that you need to remove the key from the fob is a small punch and small hammer to remove the roll pin, then the key is free from the fob.

Key Recall

Antone have pictures of their new replacement keys? Took mine in for a front air dam replacement, they mentioned the recall, but of course have to order everything. Was curious what this new key looks like, and if i even want to have my switchblade key replaced....

The turn around time of the tool? Or how long it takes them to do the recall?

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.

IGNITION KEY
Locate an authorized General Motors dealer to obtain more information about this recall.

Guess we're all going to have it.

I just called GM direct, the customer rep I spoke to looked up the VIN and explained the exact codes I knew and expected to hear (noted below). He was reading out loud while he looked it up, said GM was producing the parts as they were ordered, sometimes taking a few weeks to deliver, but when I noted the few weeks quote, he quickly replied TBD. Basically didn't want quote anything or mis-inform.

Reason I'm hot on this topic is that I finally purchased my 'mid-life crisis' car, located at a dealer on the west coast. The day they punched the sale up in the computer, GM put a lock on the release. Recall has to be completed before released to me.

I am in NY and have a transport on standby, we're waiting for the dealer to get the parts (which they also said, approx 3 weeks), but I am busting beyond belief and just want the car already. Something inside of me is telling me the cars gonna be there for a long time before this is completed, and I'm just another owner who needs to get in line and wait.

GM Recall #:N140294
NHTSA Recall #:14V346

You didn't search if you couldn't find anything by typing "recall".

You actually get better results if you go to Google and search "key recall camaro5".
