GM Recalls 2010 Camaro in the US

It seems like the 2010 Chevy Camaro is turning into the main news subject this Friday. After two aftermarket packages designed by separate tuning houses particularly for this model, here's the third report today related to Camaro: GM is recalling 1,243 2010 Camaros in the United States due to a glitch concerning the electrical system and the battery cables which could obviously lead to a short-circuit and eventually, to a fire.

There's not much to say about the malfunction because the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration website doesn't say too much about it but according to a report by, the issue only exists on V8 Camaros. It seems like battery cables are exposed on some vehicles, increasing the risk of a short-circuit. V6 versions are unaffected by the glitch, the aforementioned source writes.

Obviously, dealers will inspect and fix the vehicles free of charge, with General Motors advising 2010 Camaro owners that might be affected by the glitch to avoid driving their cars.

What's the worst thing that could happen? Well, fire would be probably a nightmare but a short-circuit could also prevent the engine from turning on or even cut off power while driving.

We're still waiting for some official details from General Motors/Chevrolet or the NHTSA so get back soon to stay up to date with this recall. Meanwhile, you might want to read the other two Friday reports regarding Chevrolet Camaro: the tuning packages designed by Lingenfelter and by Artisan.

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, also known as the fifth generation, was officially shown to the world in 2006 in the form of a concept at the North American International Auto Show.
