    I have a 2007 Cobalt & had the ignition recall changed out last year and have had issues since, mind you I never had a problem with the old ignition. Now many times I can shut car off, pull key out & it stays running. Have taken it back & of course surprise they can’t find an issue w/ it & say it must be intermittent & have to live w/ it. Today I went to breakfast w/ my girlfriend & it happened to us again so we decided to play around w/ it. We found that if the driver’s heated seat was on when we shut it off the car wouldn’t shut off till we shut off seat!!!!!!!! Never happened before new ignition was replaced, not sure what to do but sure dealer will say its nothing to do w/ them. Just thought I would share

    I have a 2006 HHR and had a pretty much endless supply of small electrical problems. In the 5 years I’ve had the car I’ve gone through 6 batteries, 3 Headlight replacements, 3 blinker replacements and a stuck key that got a recall. I’ve also had to fix the fan for my heater twice. After replacing my last battery neither my heater/ac fan will work nor will my windshield wipers work on anything but high and do not auto return so you have to time it just right to get them down at the base of the windshield. It’s the proverbial money pit. I’m about to junk the darn thing but I thought I’d check to see if GM is aware of the piece of junk they have out there and are willing to do something about it.. so here I am. Thanks for letting me vent.

    2009 HHR-inside dash lights will blink-driver side floor stays wet-no leaks from roof-key gets stuck in ignition -auto headlights won’t go out which kills battery unless I disconnect battery post each time I park-this is the car I got so that my wife may transport her elderly clients safely-(I’m disappointed and angry)

      Not sure if you fixed your wet floor problem but outside, in between the hood and windshield there is a vent. Remove the vent and underneath is a little plastic piece of garbage (supposedly glued over top of a large hole. It is very common for the glue to release itself after drying out. You can either replace or as I did in my mother-in-laws just duct taped over it. Duct tape not the proper thing to use but will most likely last for a few years.

    I bought my car in Dec 2015, I had a passenger side floorboard that never stayed dry due to the windshield being bowed, ignition problems where the key wouldn’t come out, steering went at the same time, needed a new battery due to the vehicle not starting half the time, still have to smack the taillight so it works.. will never get another HHR that’s for sure..

    I have a 2007 HHR. Am about to put my third fuel pump in. The car has 90,000 miles on it now and the original pump went out at 88,000 miles. Last time they put in a GMC pump because the Chevy ones were no good. Now it’s going out. Plus I have had other problems I won’t even go into, every since I bought this car. I will never buy another even though I love the car it self. Anyone else have this problem?

    Car is junk will replace with a toyota. I worked for GM as die maker/engineer this vechicle was made to increase sales, all corners in manufacturing process was forgotton, made in mexico, general motors studied the type of people who would buy this car could not afford a legal battle with them. BUY TOYOTA!, ITS MADE IN USA

    135,000 miles, now Replaced ign. switch, warranted, brake pads & shoes and shocks& struts at 100,000 mi., could have gon further! Two Window switches on driver door bad. Too much loose plastic under car (rattles) Fixed it my self. Would buy another because of the size & space. Just right for wife, I deive a GMC 2500 & it will be my last vechile, since I’m 77 yrs old. Will buy another Chev. or GMC when the HHR gets to 200,000 mi.
