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.

2008 Chevrolet HHR Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 152009


  • 52,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet HHR. While the vehicle was traveling 55 mph with the cruise control engaged the vehicle suddenly shut off, causing the contact to coast the vehicle to a stop. Also in a separate incident, while the contact was attempting to make a U-turn traveling at a speed of 8 mph he noticed that the power steering light had appeared on the dashboard. Moments later the power steering no longer functioned. The vehicle was taken to the dealership for both incidents where the contact was informed that neither failure could be reproduced. The failure mileage was 52000 and the current mileage is 56000.
