DETROIT (Reuters) - U.S. safety regulators received a complaint about a Chevrolet Camaro driver accidentally shutting off the car with a knee more than a year before General Motors on Friday recalled half a million of the sports cars over the issue, which is similar to the defect linked to 13 deaths in older GM small cars.

I almost taught the bottom of the barrel had been reached on GM's faulty engineered ignition switches. I'd be surprised if these switches are only the tip of the iceberg of numerous other badly designed/QC'ed parts.

not worried about quality any longer, they only concentrate on quantity and throwing it together and "here's your car"

This is all so deja vu, sweeping it under the rug hoping it will go away.
