THIS CAR HAS A RELAY FOR THE STARTER .. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE IT IS... PUSH ON ALL THE RELAYS AND FUSES ( UNDER THE HOOD ,DRIVERS SIDE, IN A BLACK BOX.. REMOVE COVER CAREFULLY ) AND YOU MIGHT FIND ONE THAT IS A BIT LOOSE .. THIS HAPPENED TO MY BRAND NEW HHR.. I HAD TO INFORM MY DEALER WHO NEVER HEARD OF THIS PROBLEM...

2006 Chevrolet HHR Recalls
In order to help prevent rollaway type accidents, all late model vehicles are designed so that the transmission must be in park (or reverse for a manual transmission) before the ignition switch can be turned to the "off" position and the key removed. These vehicles are being recalled because the key can be removed when the ignition is not in the "off" position, increasing the risk of a rollaway type accident. Dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace the ignition lock cylinder as necessary. 2 new keys will also be supplied and programmed as required.
These vehicles are being recalled because the weight on the key ring and/or a jarring event while driving may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern.
The door on the dash storage bin may not stay closed in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will install a redesigned latch to correct this issue. This recall will begin on December 23, 2008. The General Motors recall number is 08157.
2006 Chevrolet HHR Reviews
front windshield wipers do not work. wiper motor has been tested and works. switch on steering column tests okay. concern it might be body control module.
We only have 42000 miles on this car and have had more than our share of problems with the front suspension. The dealer replaced the bearing assembly on the right side under warranty but now I think the left side is bad. I don't believe you should have these kinds of problems with such low mileage.
have an 06 hhr and love it the only problem with 45000 miles on it is the hatch that stop working and the door handle that broke off.. one other thing was the rotors that had to be replace twice. I love the car but don't understand with the miles being so low was why has these problems come up. Chevy needs to check these problems out and make a better fix to these problems.
