ComplaintDescription

STRUCTURE: BODY: DOOR

10/15/2011 - HOUSTON, TX
I HAVE A 2006 HHR AND THE PLASTIC DOOR HANDLE ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE HAS BROKEN OFF. I HAVE TO LEAVE MY CAR RUNNING , ROLL THE WINDOW DOWN, STICK MY HAND OUT OF THE WINDOW, OPEN THE DOOR FROM THE OUTSIDE, ROLL MY WINDOW BACK UP AND THEN KILL THE MOTOR. I, TOO, WAS TOLD IT WOULD COST $400.00 TO REPLACE THE DOOR PANEL. THIS IS A TOTAL RIPOFF!!!!!!!!!!!. GM/CHEVROLET OR WHOEVER MANUFACTURED THIS CAR SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR PUTTING IN A CHEAP PIECE OF PLASTIC. THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER WAY TO FIX THIS WITHOUT PUTTING OUT $400/$500 FOR A BROKEN PIECE OF PLASTIC! AND THAT PROBABLY DOES NOT INCLUDE TAX AND LABOR!

STEERING

10/3/2011 - NEWTON, NC
THE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING HAS FAILED INTERMITTENTLY OVER THE PAST MONTHS SINCE JULY 4, 2011. THE FIRST INCIDENT WAS ON JULY 4, 2011 WHEN THE POWER STEERING FAILED ON A FAMILY TRIP ALMOST CAUSING AN ACCIDENT AT 65 MPH. THERE HAVE BEEN UP TO A DOZEN INSTANCES SINCE WITH THE LATEST BEING ON OCT 2, 2011 CAUSING MY WIFE TO RUN OFF THE INTERSTATE INTO THE MEDIAN. GM CLAIMS THERE IS NO RECALL, HOWEVER THERE ARE RECALLS FOR THE SAME EXACT ELECTRIC POWER STEERING MOTORS FOR THE COBALTS FROM GM. THE HHR'S NEED TO BE A PART OF THIS RECALL AS THE MOTOR IS THE SAME EXACT ONE AS THE COBALT. PLEASE RECALL THESE ALSO BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT OR WORSE. THE INTERNET SITES ARE FILLED WITH COMPLAINTS ON THIS ISSUE.
