The Chevrolet Camaro has been one of America’s favorite vehicles for many years due to its sleek, muscular design dating back to its inception in 1966. However, a potentially dangerous defect has been discovered in some of the newer models with V6 manual transmissions. These vehicles have low mileage and no abuse which could mean that a possible flaw in either the design or manufacturing processes is responsible. General Motors is aware of the Camaro clutch disintegration problem but has yet to issue a recall to repair it.
The clutch is an integral part of a manual transmission vehicle. It receives the torque transfer from the engine and transmission and separates the two while the vehicle is in motion. A manual transmission automobile cannot work without a clutch. Should the clutch disintegrate while the vehicle is moving, the car will stall, leaving the driver completely helpless. If a stall occurs while the vehicle is traveling at high speeds, such as on a freeway, there is high risk of an auto accident that could potentially cause catastrophic injury and even death.
