Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Chevrolet HHR Owner Comments

2006 HHR key sticks in ignition. Button that ignites shifter broken and sticks in place causing the shifter to be easily engaged at any time. Car is at 70,822 miles. Car dealer states it is not covered by transferable manufacturers 5 yr/100,000 powertrain warranty. Car was purchased used 05/2007. Cost to cover replacement is over $300. If operators do not get this replaced I am sure it will cause property death, injury, and accidents as the shifter can be engaged by a slight bump to park, reverse, neutral, etc.
