General Motors Corp. says it is recalling about 300 new Chevrolet Camaros because a battery cable could rub against the starter motor, wearing the insulation and potentially causing the car to stop running or fail to start. [INTERACTIVE: Click here to take a look at Detroit's Big Three]

The voluntary recall applies only to Camaros with V-8 engines.

The company says in extreme cases the cable problem could cause a fire, but no fires have been reported.

GM spokesman Dan Flores says the company has made about 1,400 of the V-8 equipped 2010 Camaros and 300 have been sold. The unsold models will be fixed before they are delivered to customers.

Flores says GM will tow the cars to dealers and offer free loaner vehicles and oil changes.
