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.

The ECM came on with no warning causing the vehicle to veer off the road to the right and skidding this happened three times in the past year which is scary at best also there is a smell of exhaust and fuel in the cabin.

The contact owns a 2011 Chevrolet HHR. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 10 mph, the lug nuts fractured. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that both front rims where bent. The contact then took her vehicle to a private mechanic for a second opinion and they stated that both front tires where up to standard. The contact stated that the vehicle would not keep lug nuts on the tires for longer then a week and a half. The manufacturer was made aware of problem. The approximate failure mileage was 79,220. The VIN was not available.

I've been having problems with my right front end since I bought the car. When I cut the wheel hard to the right, it makes a loud thumping noise like something is going to pop off. It makes the most noise in a slow or parking movement. Then I take it in and they pump up the tires with air, and say there's nothing wrong with it. Then the air low light for the tires comes on. You fill it up, and then another one comes on. Then check the air bag pops on. I've even experienced the car literally feeling like the motor idling real low to almost shut off. This has happened atleast 3 times. I was only doing about 25 miles an hour, but it was really cold outside. Everytime I have taken it for repair, they have said, we can't find anything wrong.
