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.

HHR 4-cyl

  • 150,000 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet HHR. The contact stated that the power steering failed intermittently. The power steering, air bag, and service engine sensors were all illuminated and the contact had a difficult time turning the steering wheel. There was a loud clicking noise that was heard each time the steering wheel was turned. The VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign numbers: 14V153000 (steering) and 14V047000 (air bags, electrical system). The vehicle was not repaired and the manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 150,000. Updated 10/7/14 the vehicle overheated, the engine and air bag light illuminated. The lower control bushing, timing solenoid and camshaft needed to be replaced. Updated 11/25/14 the consumer stated the dealership could not duplicate the power steering failure. The left front head light was replaced 5 times. The catalytic converter and front axle were replaced. The vehicle rolled backwards out of the driveway causing minor damage.
