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.

2011 Chevrolet HHR Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 012013

HHR LT 2.2L I4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles


I had taken my HHR to the dealership with the noise complaint. It also telegraphed a great deal of vibration through the steering wheel. The dealership noted oil and leakage from the left front strut. Both were changed and an alignment was done. They noted the sound was gone. I was hopeful. I was disappointed. The sound was still there. I reported to the dealership the sound was still there. They examined it again and found a fault with the steering system. The rack and steering column was replaced. It is now beyond the condition of new, it rides and handles better than when I first bought it. Very happy with the warranty work and support from Chevrolet.
