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

problem #5

  • 2,470,000 miles


Fuel line leak just in front of rear driver side tire near exhaust pipe due to poorly designed "protective" wrapped around the lines causing corrrosive road salt spray to be trapped next to steel fuel lines and accelerating corrosion of lines. Potential fire hazard due to close proximity of fuel lines to exhaust design.
