You are in the Chevrolet HHR
What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet HHR, Wagon
Feb 12, 2013 (10:39 am)
Today, I had repairs done on my 2010 HHR LT2 with only 26,000 miles and I would like to know if these are common problems or just my bad luck?
#1 They had to change the "Transmission Cooler Line" because it had oil leaking from it.
#2 They changed the right and left "Strut Boots and Bumpers" on my front suspension.
How can this have happen? I take really good care of my HHR and I'm a conservative driver, not rude at all on my HHR.
Bad luck or common problem on the HHR's?

I have a 2010 HHR mine had only 14,000 miles. I had to replace the ignition switch and the power steering part it had been fried. Im wondering if its just problems with the 2010

I also had the ignition switch replaced but not because of a problem, I had received a recall letter saying that I should go to any G.M. dealer to get it changed.
No problem with the power steering but I've read that there has been lot's of issues about it.

Benn having all kinds of problems for about 3 years with my HHR. I took it to my fifth different auto shop less than a month ago.They found a loose plug or wire under my car. Its been about 3 and a half weeks and no problems so far. I will post back if this didn't fix the problem.

Hopefully all is resolved, pennynole! Did you work with a GM dealership at all along the way? Let us know if we can follow up on anything for you.

No, I just kept taking it to different dealers. The one before thought my pmc - dmc or something like that got wet and was making my computer box go crazy, So I gave the last dealer all my info he said it wasn't the dmc or pmc. My car finally act up with him but reset before he could check for the problem. So he went under my car and traced all my wires and said my plugs or wire came loose. I've driven it 800 miles and no problems so far.

Yes, I couldn't even turn my wheels.I also had other lights that came on and they all reset some times when i cut the car off. I think the car light with a lock came on and I think it was a engine light. I think if you are having any electronic problem then that could be whats wrong with your car. I had to pay $86 to fix it I still want believe my car is fix even though i think it is.

When I had my problems with the steering light coming on, they claimed they couldn't find anything. Then they said that I had a low fuse or something and that I must have had the car jumped. I never had any reason to jump my car. Anyway to make a long story short, after I raised cane about how dangerous it is to drive this car on the freeway during peak hours, they called me in and fixed it. It would have cost me $450 but got it done free. I still don't feel safe in it. I did file a claim with the Dept of Public Safety and was told there were not enough complaints to make a recall.
