Chevrolet HHR Water on Passenger Floorboard
I bought a 2006 Chevy HHR in December from a Carmax in Texas, it was transferred from the San Antonio Store to the Cypress Store which is in the Houston area.
Not even having it a week i was back at carmx because there was broken glass under my drivers and passenger front seats, and also inside the drivers seat where the back of the seat meats the part of the seat we sit on.
I asked them to vacuum the glass out, but had to get them to do it three different times.
How hard is it to move the seat back and get everything?
There was also broken glass inside the passenger door and you could hear it when you closed the door, they broke one of the latches that holds the inside door panel to the door, so glued it back, but i still hear glass.
January 12, 2009 I had to get the AC Resister replaced, and was free because i was still under the 36,000 mile manufacturer warranty.
March 12, 2009 I get the first oil change.
March 13, 2009 a pool of water was under my mat, and the heater and ac would not blow. The little bowl shaped casing that has a different kid of carpet on it than the cars carpet that protrudes down behind the glove compartment that holds the heater was wet to the touch as well, and nothing in the glove compartment was wet.
I go back to the place that did the oil change to see if they mabe hit something or messed with a hose, but nothing.
My husband and i were on our way out of state for vacation so we could not get it looked at to see if it was another bad resister, and it started blowing out normal again so i let it go.
Now today, i go out to go to the store and we are having bad rains here in Texas right now and i have a larger pool of water on the passenger floor board that the time in march.
I take it back to the oil change place so they can see for themselves the amount of water.
They wonder if the seal for the windshield is not on probably on the passenger side cause it seems looser than on the drivers side, but i go to carmax and they say it is just the black covering that is bolted o both sides that covers the bottom of the windshield, that makes no sense to me.
The carmax i bought it at I think it is ridiculous they do not have their service dept.'s open on the weekends.
They look under the hood and the insulation on the outside of the car that is right where the heater firewall is, is Wet, as well as the water inside.
You ca see the streaks of water on the carpet behind the glove compartment.
I have answered all the questions of did i drive through high water, no.
I took it into a Chevy dealership Friday because carmax could not get me in.
The floorboard was damp on Thursday and they removed insulation that was covering the little ac drain, and we hoped that would maybe be a small problem and it was fixed.
My hhr was a fleet/rental vehicle before so it does not have all the nice gadgets that some have inside nor the label of hhr on the back door.
I bought it with around 34,000 miles, it is now around 37,200 miles.
Of course all these problems start after my manufacture warranty runs out, and the 30 day warranty from carmax.
I bought an extended warranty that is tacked on to my car payment, but if the problems happens to be a casing, or hose i the ac or heater, or something like that, it is not covered by gm with your extended warranty.
What other ways can they screw us?
any help or advice from anyone
