Camaro SS 6.2L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


Ever since I purchased this 2014 Camaro used from the dealer, it's always had an issue with the key getting stuck in the ignition when going to turn off the car. I've usually had to wait up to 3-5 minutes for a "click" sound within the ignition area to safely remove the key.

Camaro RS 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission

Recently key started getting suck in ignition. I had the recall done and now it takes me about 10 minutes each time to get my key out. I called the dealership only to be put on hold for the longest time and then sent over to voice mail after being on hold for 10 minutes. I have turned the wheel, taken out of park and gone down to manual and back up to park and it still won't come out. Anyone with any other suggestions?

Upon reading that a lot of 2014 Camaro's have this problem then it should be listed as a recall. My Vehicle only has 23000 kms on it and already has this significant problem is complete BS.

My key randomly gets stuck in the ignition after I shut the car off. The only thing that seems to help is moving the shifter a little bit back and forth while it’s in the “P” position. This is a very irritating problem and it looks to be common. When will a recall/fix be issued?

Sometimes when the car is shifted into park the key can not be removed. You need to take it out of park and shift back into park one or more times before it will allow the key to be removed.

Camaro LT2 3.6L. V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles

Then just one day after it was out of warranty the ignition switch would not release the key half of the time, and you had to keep turning the key on and putting it into park and then after a few tries it would release the key. I took it to the dealer and the said it had a bad automatic shifter and it needed to be replace for a tune of $350. Supposedly Chevrolet helped out with the part but I still had to pay $75. And the pain of it failing in only three years.

I have had numerous vehicles for decades and never have I had a heater core go out, and never had a automatic shifter fail, and especially in only, or less than three year old.

I love the way the car looks, and drives, and the performance, but it is a whitewashed grave and a piece of junk fresh from the factory.

I bought this car two years ago fro the States and shipped it to Saudi. This ignition problem has appeared since a while. I took it to different mechanics and everyone is telling me something different. I get totally stuck sometimes as I cannot get the key out of the ignition. I have to turn the car on and off so many times and move it front and back. It looks embarrassing when somebody is waiting for you.

I could not fix it yet and I appreciate if somebody fixed it before me to tell me what is the problem and how to fix it.

The key is getting stuck all the time starting in August of 2017. Wednesday Oct 11, 2017 it is going in to the dealership to be repaired (hopefully). I hope GM lives up to their end of the bargain, the car is still under warranty.

The key will get stuck in the ignition daily and I have to restart engine and shift into reverse and then shift back into park for the key to be removed. This process has to be completed several times before the key can be removed from the ignition. I taken it to the dealer 3 times. the first time they ordered parts for the ignition

and installed them on the second visit and once I arrived home the problem was still there. I took it back today and the technician could not locate the problem and said he cannot repair it if he cannot find the problem so I left the dealership with no technical action being taken to fix the problem. The dealership has back me into a corner and my next step will be to contact GM and file an official complaint.

Camaro 1LT 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

It's really a minor inconvenience at most. Once in a long while, the key will get stuck in the ignition after the car is turned off. All I need to do to free the key is briefly jiggle the gear selector and the key comes right out every time.

It seems to be an issue with the sensor in the gear selector that locks the key in the ignition if the car is in gear; as if the sensor doesn't recognize that the car is in park, and then does when you jiggle the selector.
