GM said a driver's knee could bump the Camaro key fob and move the ignition switch out of the "run" position, causing the engine to shut off.

The earlier recall of Cobalts and other small cars involved an ignition switch in which a bump of the key fob could turn off the engine, disabling power steering and airbags.

Government Motors should go through and revisit all the parts that their fired and disciplined engineers had anything to do with to make sure there's no more skeletons lurking in the closet.

What car puts its ignition key low enough to be bumped by the driver's knee? Sounds like poor engineering to me.
