2007 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.

I bought this car off the lot in Feb. 2007. I currently have 177K on it and still runs great. We had to replace the headlight bulb which was a bit troublesome through the wheelwell but we managed. I have had very few issues. The brakes lasted until around 165K. I recently replaced tires and the brakes now feel a bit weird when applied hard but I am going to have my brake man check to see if it ...
