Friday the 13th, GM announced that every Chevrolet Camaro made since 2010 is being recalled for…. An ignition-switch issue. This brings the total number of GM recalls for 2014 up to 38.
Technically, the recall of all the fifth generation Camaro’s isn’t for an issue with the ignition switch itself. What GM is recalling is the Camaro’s key fob. They key fob locks the car, sets the alarm, and so on but an added feature for the Camaro is that the key itself is also integrated into the fob and with the touch of a button, the metal key retracts into the fob or snaps out.
GM stated that the reason more than 500,000 cars are being recalled is because “a drivers knee can bump the key fob and [...]

Well then fifteen minutes roll, by then twenty, and by now you have started to slowly roll forward. Making some ground thinking it will be alright I’ll get there with time to spare still. Just trying to make the best of the situation [...]
As my dad was teaching me how to drive manual on a 77 VW Rabbit, he kept telling me how import it was to learn. He kept using the example that one day I may go somewhere and see an amazing Ferrari or Lamborghini and the owner of the car offers to let me drive it. “How much would it suck if you could not drive the car just because it is manual?” He would always say. While I haven’t been fortunate enough to be handed the keys to someones Ferrari just yet… I recently found another reason as to why it is important to learn as well as why a manual car is anti-theft in and of its self.
