What Breaks the Most
5th Generation (2010–2015) Camaro Key Numbers
GM used heat shields that don't curve under the starters in the 5th and 6th generation Camaro, according to a new lawsuit.
That leaves them exposed to heat and makes them completely unreliable. The plaintiff says the problem is particularly noticable on hot days or after a long drive where the engine gets hot. The car has to cool down before an owner can start it back up.

GM is recalling every single current-generation Camaro, all 511,528 of them, because of an ignition switch issue similar to the one that already killed 13 people.
Or 74 or more depending on who you ask.
The driver's knee can bump into the key fob causing it to inadvertently move the ignition out of the 'run' positon. Once that happens you're like Popeye without spinach -- just a bunch of flabby muscles you can't use.…keep reading article "GM Wants Everyone to Bring Back Their Camaros"
