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.

While driving my power steering failed I currently do not have power steering still. The back latch will not open as well. I cannot access the trunk where my battery is because the latch will not open.

On 3 different occasions it has rained while my car sat overnight and water has seeped in the passenger side compartment from behind the glove box, I have had this addressed 3 times and repaired 3 times and found out that it is a small flap that covers a hole on the firewall that fails or falls off making it so that water enters the vehicle. This is not a isolated incident other HHR owners say they have the same problem.

Inside door handle broken cant open door, electric mirror switch fell into door, back indoor panel falling off, leak through passenger door behind front passenger. These are ongoing issues with other HHR owners and need to be addressed. The door latch is made of very cheap plastic. You can verify with all youtube videos.

After putting the gear shift in park, the key gets stuck in the ignition. This happened to me four times in one day. Had to finally pop a piece off under the steering wheel and get down on the ground and stick my finger up in there and find the end piece of a white plastic cylinder and push it to release my key.

Second time this has happened within a week. Both times at a stop. First time stop sign, second time stop light. As soon as I reached the stop light I loose power steering. Each time I turned on my hazard lights, put the vehicle in park and restarted it. The power steering returns.

Ignition switch was replaced under recall in Nov 2014. On date of failure it was not possible to turn the key, but it could be removed and reinserted. Because the ignition key couldn't be turned, the steering wheel was locked and the transmission was locked in park. Vehicle had to be towed to chev dealer that advises they will replace it under warranty.

I have been calling the Chevrolet dealership in an attempt to schedule my recalls since July 2014. I was initially told the parts would be ordered and asked if there was anything else I could schedule as they do not like to schedule recalls due to it takes away money from service. I scheduled a repair and heard nothing else. I have been calling for months and leaving messages with no return calls, or they would tell me they were going to check on this and call me back never to be heard from again. I finally had to get ugly with them and finally they have scheduled some of the recalls to be fixed next week. Seems like this should be grounds for a lawsuit as the safety of my family was so easily passed over during all these months.

I was driving home from work and at a red light I was turning right once it had turned green but my steering wheel had gotten really rough to turn. It continued to do this at every complete stop. It made it very unsafe to drive and turn. I have searched the web and it has been happening to many models of the same vehicle however my year of car is not placed on the recall,

I went to get out of my car and the door handle on drivers side snapped off. Until I can get this fixed I believe this is a safety issue such as what if my car caught on fire and I was not able to open my door and many other such things could happen. I have checked and found that this is an ongoing problem with this model of car and Chevy has not done any recalls and I was told by a Chevy service department that I would have to replace the entire door panel to correct the problem, which is very costly, $441 for parts and labor.
