    The Chevy Camaro recall affects more than half a million vehicles.

    Four more recalls for General Motors, including one for its popular Chevy Camaro muscle car.

    G-M announced today it is recalling Camaros from model years 2010 through 2014.

    Company tests showed a driver's knee can bump the key fob and turn it out of the "run" position, causing a loss of power.

    The recall affects more than 511-thousand Camaros, mainly in North America.

    While the Camaro recall involves an ignition switch, it is different than G-M's earlier recall of 2-point-6 million Chevy Cobalts.

    G-M recalled the Cobalts because of a flawed ignition switch that has been linked to at least 13 deaths.

    G-M said it is aware of three crashes relating to the camaro recall that caused "minor" injuries.

    So far this year, G-M has recalled 16.5 million cars and trucks, worldwide.

    The other, much smaller recalls announced by G-M today are for Saab 9-3 convertibles, model years 2004 through 2011, Buick Lacrosse sedans from model year 2014, and various Chevy Sonic compacts from the 2012 model year.

    G-M said affected owners will get a letter explaining the problems and how to get repairs.
