According to Edmunds, Chevrolet is recalling 18,941 Camaro models in the United States due to airbag warning stickers on the sun visors that may peel off. This might not seem like a big deal, but, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration puts it, "If the airbag warning label detaches from the visor, the driver and front seat passenger may not be warned of the risks of airbag deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash."

The affected Camaro models are from the 2013 and 2014 model years, built between July 9 and September 6, 2013. General Motors reportedly issued a "stop delivery" order to dealers on September 19. Chevy dealers will inspect these Camaros and, if the stickers on the visors have started to peel, the visors will be replaced altogether.

GM will notify customers of the problem and will urge them to check the cars themselves. "Because this inspection can easily be performed by the customer, and to reduce inconvenience, an inspection procedure will be provided with the customer letter," GM said in a statement, according to Edmunds. That said, if customers are not comfortable checking this on their own for whatever reason, or if the sticker has either fallen off or started to peel, the car should be brought right to the dealer.

      You know, 20+ years into the airbag era, I think people have the hang of them...

        That's true, but with all of the frivolous lawsuits out there, GM is just trying to cover it's behind because such a logical argument would not hold up in court.

      "If the airbag warning label detaches from the visor, the driver and front seat passenger may not be warned of the risks of airbag deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash." -- But they forgot to add.. "and also if you are dumb as a box of rocks and to stupid to realize that just about every car on the planet is equipped with driver and passenger airbags...be careful" It's a shame we live in such a litigious society.

      If I were lucky enough to have these damn things fall off I sure as hell wouldn't take it back to the dealer to be stuck back on. This recall is the height of absurdity.

        Who says that this is not a cover by GM to fix something else that was not recalled yet...........but will be down the road.

      Yeah those warning stickers sure do save lives...HAHA! Nobody reads those damn things, all they are is a eyesore. Everyone knows the only reason they're on their is to protect the company from getting sued for not disclosing potential hazards.

      I wish my airbag stickers would peel off! I'd pay $50 extra to have these removed!

        No kidding! It's amazing how much money and care goes into trying to make car interiors attractive, only to have stupid ugly stickers pooped on to them.

      I suspect that not many people will go back to have these stickers fixed, especially with it being an issue on a sportier model like a Camaro. I would say that people who tend to be a little more passionate about their rides tend to find things like bright yellow warning labels on their visors more annoying than most.

        I don't see how this is a problem. Those are required safety equipment. If required safety equipment fails, whether it's a sticker or an airbag sensor, Federal law requires a recall. In this particular case, very few owners will care and the fix is minimally costly, so it will be a recall without a recall. What else do you actually expect them to do, while complying with the law and covering themselves against liability? I swear to christ, you people complain without even thinking, it's like your default mode.

      Haha you would take their car to the dealer for this? I wish mine would fall off. Seriously who doesn't know that their car has an airbag?

      How does a sticker stop you from being hurt by the airbag when it is deploy.
