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.

problem #1

Jul 232006

HHR 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,200 miles
After 7500 miles, HHR is demonstrating starter/ignition problems. As opposed to new vehicle, it now takes between 3-7 seconds or more, to get vehicle to start. Initially, vehicle started immediately with key and remote starter. This problem is intermittent but chronic. A vehicle should not take this much cranking to start.
