A faulty storage bin latch is behind GM’s recall of 300,000 2006-2008 Chevrolet HHRs. The lid on the HHRs instrument panel storage bin was prone to unlatch during a crash, causing the lid to open.
The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration discovered the failure during regulator and mandatory testing. This failure breaks NHTSA’s requirement for automakers to prevent injuries from the interior surface in the event of a crash.
As of yet, no injuries or accidents have been linked to the default. GM will be send a latch reinforcement kit to all HRR owners affected by the recall. The kit is designed for at-home-installation, but HHR owners will also have the option of taking their car to a Chevroler dealer to have the kit installed.
