If you are a member of this site, chances are you own a fifth gen Camaro. You already know about the recall. But don't feel too bad, this happens to the best of the industry and I mean literally THE BEST.
Porsche's new GT3, every example
has been recalled because the engines were catching fire.
When the Ferrari 458
had been out for just a few months, they had to recall every one because the glue in the back of the car could get hot on a track (the home of Ferraris) and catch fire. Even Lexus has had problems
Lexus is supposed to be known as the be-all, end-all in perfect quality and they had to recall every HS250h because they would spray gas all over in a crash. The extra nail in their coffins is that, the Lexus HS wasn't even a good car to begin with, it was like bland, mass-produced fruit.
Camaros are great cars that just need a new key and fob. The Porsches needed all new engines because of a faulty screw. Plus because the engine is tucked way in there, dropping it is likely much harder than changing the keys and fob on a Camaro.
Now the 458 Italia is gorgeous but come on, using cheap glue that can't handle track use, that should have been caught and fixed in track testing. Or does Ferrari not track test their cars even though Chevy sure knows how?
