The first problems for the new Camaro: GM recalls V8 powered units due to battery cable issue | Rpmgo.com

The new Chevrolet Camaro is an amazing car, but it looks like it’s not perfect yet. Because GM has announced the V8 powered units will be recalled due to a problem to a battery cable.

General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2010 model year Chevrolet Camaro vehicles equipped with a V8 engine. Some of these vehicles have a condition in which the positive battery cable may contact the starter motor housing and cause wear on the cable insulation. If the insulation wears through to the cable, it could create a short. A short could result in a no start condition, cause the vehicle to stall without the ability to restart, or result in an engine compartiment fire.

GM advises all Camaro owners to take their cars to a dealership asap. Though a permanent fix will be available by May 11, customers can either choose to have a temporary fix made to the car, or leave the car at the dealer and get courtesy transportation.
