"The Camaro ignition system meets all GM engineering specifications and is unrelated to the ignition system used in Chevrolet Cobalts and other small cars included in the ignition switch recall," GM said in a statement.

So, GM has found multiple ways to fark up the design of a simple component and still meet their exacting standards of quality.

The entire company should be forced to go back to school and (re)take Statistical Quality Control 101.

You're kidding!

I hope GM has a good sense of humor and doesn't take us to court.

I think the issue with the Camaro isn't that the ignition switch is faulty, but that it's located in a position that makes it susceptible to being accidentally hit by the driver's knee...which could shut off the vehicle.

If the fark up just an ignition switch that bad, what do you think the quality of the rest of the car is like?

\still love the term 'rolling sarcophaguse'

They claim it's not an ignition problem because the fix doesn't involve changing the ignitions internals. They're just changing to key design to completely avoid the potential for a problem

I just rented a Camaro for the week (yeah yeah....rental, not a full on hopped up version), but it had the acceleration of a Camry.  Not exciting at all.  Exhaust sounded like a Camry, too.  Reminded me of the first time I drove a BMW Z3 when they first came out....I was like - that's it?  My old 1978 323 had more guts.

A few weekends ago, I rented an SS from Avis. It was fast as hell. Was the one you rented just the LS coupe?

Torn between getting an SS or a new Tundra. Can't decide if I want to just keep my 02 Tundra for work, fix it up a little and drive the SS or just get a '14 Tundra. Of course, all these recalls might make the decision for me.

sounds like you got a V6.

I guarantee you my ZL1, hell even the SS would sound and be a hell of a lot more fun than the V6

That's because Camry V-6es have the acceleration of a V-8 in the old days. Under 6 seconds 0-60. Before about 1992, the standard V-8 Camaro was slower than a modern Camry.

A coworker bought a Camaro F-body brand new (years ago, duh) and she was bragging about it, till we found out she got the V6.  Since then I don't get too excited by sport cars driven by women till I find out the engine.  Recently we got a new coworker who drives a real Mustang (5.0), and she calls it cute.  I told her a Mustang with the 5.0 isn't cute, especially when it has a bigger motor than my truck.

I had an 89 5.0. Beast. Fun at times. But a beast. Can't describe it any other way.
