My suggestion is that GM fix the ignition switch itself and make it less prone to being shut off by an outside object (harder to turn by hitting it with your knee) rather than take our nice flip keys away. This is bullshit. I paid for a 2010 model year car with a modern-looking key. I should not have to settle for a 2 part key as part of some "save-face campaign" safety recall.

Move your seat and steering wheel back. I'm 6'4" and have never even come close to the keys.

I will not be doing this recall since i can't recall a time i was ever so close my knee touched the fob. I DID however remove all my other keys from the FOB just to avoid the extra weight on the ignition switch. It's annoying when you now have too carry "2" sets of keys but easy when you run in a store and throw your fob in the pocket. If they switched to what a lot of cars have today which is the remote/keyless start, I would go and get that which is an upgrade. This is a little pointless since only 3 occurrences occurred

That would be the only way I would do it... Where's FBodyFather, we need to get him on it.

+1

If I arrange the seat for aggressive/track driving my knee does touch dangling keys (2). If I sit lower, I have to adjust the wheel down and it blocks out the gauges. That is my only gripe with this car.

Exactly.

I look forward to seeing how many people overall are all up in arms over this, to where they can't wait to get their car's in to service to have the keys replaced. Not all 5th gen owners are as level headed as those posting in this thread.

Notice that this recall affects only the Camaro, even though Malibu, Cruze, Sonic, and Equinox all use the same switch blade keys as the Camaro.

Here's what they'll likely want to swap our switchblade keys for.
No thanks.

After 5 years of ownership I had this exact thing happen to me three weeks ago for the first time. I was adjusting my seating position (moving my knee up) at 55 MPH and lost power. I quickly realized what happen and turned the ignition back to power and was just fine. I only have two keys on my key fob a house key and my garage key. I’m a bigger guy so when I am using cruise control and resting my right leg in the up position my two attached keys do touch my knee. I’m really not worried about the recall and do not plan on having it performed.

I am not really happy about this. We all need to write chevy and make them come up with a different solution. I paid a lot of money for my car as I am sure all of you have and they need to keep it the way we want it.

Come the F on? Really? Is the above picture the key, two pieces? So annoying. How is the dealer going to recode the PASS-III system? Can they do that at the shop or should they be sending out ahead of time for new keys?

There is no way I'm doing it unless somehow the dealer can force it. I have a lot of warranty left so I'm sure I'll have to visit a dealer eventually. I would assume that if they do it they will deactivate or keep the current keys. You could try keeping the spare, but something tells me it would no longer function after the recall work.

This seems like a really stupid recall, especially in light of the Cobalt recall. Remember on those the weight of the separate key fob was said to be the problem so they wanted you to drive with the ignition key only? Now on the Camaro they want to ADD a separate fob? How does than make any sense?
