Chevrolet recalls 30 Camaros due to emblem projectile risk
A rarity, but somehow Chevy traced these cars across 4-plus years of production
Chevrolet issued a small but important safety recall that applies to 30 units of the Camaro. Its engineers discovered a defect that can cause the plastic emblem on the steering wheel to fly into the driver's face as the airbag deploys.
Documents sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) explain only 30 cars built between June 15, 2016, and January 4, 2021, are included in the recall. Chevrolet used its own records and part trace data to identify the vehicles fitted with a potentially defective part and avoid a much larger (and costlier) recall. There's no word on whether the issue is limited to specific trim levels, body styles, or engine types.
