General Motors Recalls - Europe?
So General Motors have recently recalled nearly 512,000 Chevrolet Camaros related to their Switchblade key-fob causing the car to come out of the "Run" position whilst in motion (not the actual ignition system itself, as with previous recalls) - if you bump the fob, this causes the engine to stop whilst the car is in motion, removing power steering, assisted breaking and airbags. It basically places the car in Accessory mode.
Do you think a recall may be on the horizon for General Motors' European brands Opel and Vauxhall? These cars use exactly the same Switchblade Key Fob as the Camaro and the vast majority of GM products around the world are actually based on, or are simple rebadges of, Opel, Vauxhall and Holden products -- Buick Regal is an Opel Insignia, Likes of the Chevy Cruze use the Vauxhall Astra Platform, Chevrolet Camaro is a Holden Commodore/Vauxhall VXR8 with a different body shell etc. etc.
It just seems weird to me that cars in the US are being recalled, but the cars they're actually re-skins of in Europe, aren't. Intentionally keeping quiet and waiting for something to happen, or better engineered? What does everyone think?
