Interesting, my last car didn't have a key hole to start the car with the metal key. Was nice cause I could use the key to lock the glovebox and then keep is so valets couldn't get into it

I checked mine to see if the horn would sound & it did. If the battery is completely dead, then you would have to use it.

It's a safety thing. Imagine you're in the middle of nowhere and the battery in the key dies... How would you open your door?

Most are covered by a plastic cap or something. I had to find it for my sister on her jeep.

Looks like the 3 people that were going to buy a Camaro aren't going to be buying it now, simply because of the detached keyfob. I hope this sends a statement to GM...of course most people won't care about it, but it's 2014...why the hell are there still detached key fobs?!

I just picked up my car from service and I was told that the recall has not been issued by GM. They just got in a Z28 and it was sold and delivered the next day!

Hey all, I had a 2SS 1LE ordered and built on June 9th and it was supposed to be delivered this week. I just got word from my dealership that they put a stop deliver on all of the Camaros that are still at the plant! :( This sucks. and he doesn't know when or if they will lift it any time soon.

I live an hour outside of where they build them. So annoying. let me take delivery and i'll come back to get it fixed later, I just want to drive it! (yes I know let them fix it, just tired of waiting - Since April 28)

Shame on those whose key ring has more stuff on it than the crap they have hanging from their rearview mirror!

So the key is safe to use to open the door? At least we can use it for something.

This is a good point. I have nothing on my key ring... I have keypad door locks at home so maybe this is part of the issue.
