The Best New Car to EOC!

The 2014 Camaro.

GM recalling all 2010-2014 Chevy Camaros; announces three additional recalls | MLive.com

Brief summary, it's different than the Cobalt issue. Essentially they use a large flappy fob, and if the knee hits it, it is easy (relative to other vehicles) to turn the engine off while driving.

Seems over cautious to me, but since the airbags won't deploy if it is not in the Run position, it seems fair. But if it were me, I wouldn't be switching to this key fob for it:

Overly cautious is a understatement they needed to recall the Fob not the car
I think there is some IQ issues at GM.

They just need to put a positive spin on it. Camaro's new feature, "Turn off your car with your knee so you can keep texting".
