2010 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

Manual driver's seatback went forward on its own & stuck in forward position and trunk popped on its own while stationary. 2010 Camaro 2lt hadn't been driven over christmas break. While out strolling, my husband stops to crank the car since it had been sitting for a couple of weeks. He got in, cranked it. No trouble. A week later I went to drive it to work, used remote key to unlock doors and noticed the seatback was stuck close to the steering wheel. I tried latch on seat's back and side lever, but couldn┐T get the seatback to move. I called to tell my husband I was taking our other vehicle to work and asked if he'd raised the seatback the day he cranked the car for good measure. He didn't recall doing so. Later that evening, we went to look at the car together, used the remote to unlock the doors. He tried moving the seatback and couldn't. he noticed the trunk was popped and asked if I'd popped it. I didn┐T think so, but maybe I hit the wrong button when unlocking the doors. He slammed the trunk shut. We thought perhaps he forgot to lock the car and someone had rummaged through our car and jammed the seat. A brief online search revealed other Camaro owners w/ same issue. The seatback had gone forward on its own. I thought, if seatbacks are moving forward on their own what happens if someone's driving. Unsafe! I visited NHTSA online and saw pictures are helpful. I went home to take a pic. This time the remote didn┐T unlock the doors, so I used the key. After photos, I noticed that the trunk was popped again. No way I ┐hit the wrong button, ┐ the remote wasn't working. I checked trunk and noted the inside lights weren't on. The car's battery had drained from the trunk being open for extended periods of time on two separate occasions. Seatback moving forward on its own and trunk popping on its own┐not a coincidence. Both are serious safety concerns.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro. The driver seat has an area on the lower right side that comes up by the center console. This area is not covered in material which exposes the seat frame and parts. My wife's skirt got hung up on the seat and she had to rip the skirt from the frame in order to apply the brakes this is a accident waiting to happen please give this fast attention. There should be a recall to cover the seat completely. I went to the dealer and checked other cars and they are the same.

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. The contact stated that when the brakes were applied, the seat would move forward and while accelerating the seat would move backwards. The dealer replaced the latch and locking mechanism; however, that has not corrected the failure. The contact stated that if the vehicle was involved in a crash the seat would fail to stay in place. The failure could also cause major back injury and a tragedy to occur. The failure mileage was not available.
