Recall

Asked by Dec 24, 2015 at 03:06 PM about the 2007 Chevrolet HHR LT2

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

How is this not a recall issue? Ever since I've had this car
I've had to replace the thermostat at least eight times.
And from reading things from sites and online
communities like this one it appears that this is not
random, but a significant issue with the vehicle. General
Motors needs to issue a recall and get this fixed
permanently.

What is prompting you to keep changing the thermostat? Sounds like something else is going on here that is not the thermostat. We had an '08 model as a delivery vehicle and had no trouble with the cooling system. This vehicle requires a 195°F thermostat. If you have a lower temperature, say 180°F thermostat in there, it won't work and will continually trigger the check engine light. Also, if you have an overheating problem and are using a "failsafe" thermostat it's designed to stay open once it's been overheated once and must be replaced each time. Eight thermostats can't all be defective. As I said In the beginning, something else is going on here. HTH. -Jim

I agree with Jim. 8 thermostats? No way. Was it fixed at a dealership or independent mechanic? If independent mechanic repaired it they may have used aftermarket thermosats. Sometimes the aftermarket ones are different then the ones the manufacturer used and cause issues.
