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 MotorAuthority.com, 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.
