(Reuters) - General Motors Co (GM.N) recalled 511,528 Chevrolet Camaros on Friday for an ignition switch problem similar to the defect linked to at at least 13 deaths in Chevrolet Cobalts and other models.

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.

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.
