sigh!
My 2015 Malibu LTZ has it also.

Now, all better.
I hated that the new key felt so cheap, the little rubber piece holding the keychain came off the key when I dropped it... I guess you could just take that rubber out and put the ring around the bigger hole, but it still looks cheap. Cheap enough that I broke it off with some pliers and got a new rollpin to reverse the recall and keep an extra spare key
But I guess if your knee actually hits it then it's a concern, but I never could. I can in my 2000 focus though, no recall for some reason and I've turned it off three times by mistake with my knee when stretching on long drives

I think he was being sarcastic.

I think there is a mod for already available, I'd have to look for it again later but if you do a search I'm pretty sure others have done it. Could be wrong

I really hope that Ofer (Gen5DIY.com) comes up with the push button start for all of us.

Just ignore that , keep what you have , it's a better key altogether , and better finish product
I got the new POS , on the new car , it looks like was made in China back in the 70s

Not so sure as his avatar info states he drives a 2010 SS and they don't have the switchblade key....and as such no recall notice.
