Sunroof didn't always close and reopened while closing randomly. HHR letters peeling. Dealer forgot to replace.
HHR logo peeling that was reported to previous dealership but they forgot to replace. Replaced at alternate dealership. Roofliner rattling while driving. Everyone else can hear it except the dealership. Turning up the stereo until I can find time to fix it myself. Lost faith in GM and will never purchase another one due to poor service and reliability.
Sunroof closes 90% and re-opens. Button needs to be held down to close the sunroof Roof liner sagging and rattling. Dealer 'could not reproduce' but all passengers can hear it.
Sunroof has been leaking since replaced under warranty at the GM dealer. GM Dealer won't fix so a local shop reinstalled it properly.
Water leaked into the vehicle and soaked the front and rear floor boards on the drivers side. This was the 2nd occurence. First time it soaked only the rear drivers side. We thought it was due to blocked ac vent under drivers seat.
