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

2007 Chevy HHR. At approximately 4600 miles my struts and strut mounts went out and I had to replace them. Also there is pressure applied to the rear trunk of my car such as closing the trunk or leaning on it, it creates a huge dent. I have had the dents removed on 2 different occasions but I am constantly getting big dents and it is to costly to constantly repair. I don't think this is normal.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet HHR. Whenever the contact drove the vehicle at any speed he noticed a clanking sound on the front driver side of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealership where the stabilizer link was replaced. Prior to the recent failure the contact had the same part replaced on 3 additional occasions. The current and failure mileages were 67000.

My 2007 HHR has made noise while driving since I purchase the car. Every 6-12 months it seems that this car needs new brakes I have had the vehicle since 2008 and had to replace the tires twice due to bad traction. Recently I had to replace the stabilizer bar which was the reason the car made noise while driving, I know that Chevy is aware of this problem, but to continue to tell customers that it is nothing wrong with the car. Three week ago when putting on brakes the anti-lock brakes kick in and cause the car to tail spin and inturn I end up in the guard rail. I really this that this vehicle and alot of issues that when not tested before consumers really started buying this model. I have spent alot of money out of pockets for this car, tires for this car from sears run $150 a tire and the stabilizer bar cost me $325.
