2006 Chevrolet HHR Recall
Mar 7, 2014GM has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2006 through 2007 HHR vehicles. They stated that in these models, the weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event 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 if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ignition switch, free of charge. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.

What is a recall?
A recall is an action by the Company to remedy a safety or emissions related concern related to a vehicle defect or regulatory requirement. It may require that you return your vehicle to the dealer for service. If your vehicle is not affected, it may be because it was built at a different time or using a different part than the affected vehicles.
