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.

2007 Chevrolet HHR Owner Comments

HHR 4-cyl

The interior door handles break easily they are made of plastic the repair for this is over $400 as the whole interior door must be replaced. This causes an issue as the only way to open the door from the inside it to roll the window down. If there is no power you cannot open the window hence you are trapped. I have mailed letters to the company requesting a recall. With no success. This is dangerous and happens on most Hhrs I have see. I ask every owner I see and its a common flaw.
