In colorado mountain town when brakes began to feel soft. Within minutes they would barely stop the car. Used the hand emergency brake to stop car. There were no panel lights indicating a brake failure. Check of brake fluid showed it was full. Took car to medved chevy in castle rock, CO. They confirmed the brake failure. After consulting with gm, they replaced both front calipers. However - they were not confident that this will resolve the problem.

#2 - Brake Fluid Leak problem of the 2009 Chevrolet HHR
The vehicle involved was a 2009 Chevrolet Hhr. This is the third brake failure in this new chevy Hhr. Brakes started feeling soft. I was doing 65 mph on a 4 lane highway (denver c470) and needed to brake hard. Brakes were soft and the car pulled sharply to the right - nearly taking me into the car beside me. There were no dashboard warning lights. Had it towed to medved chevy in castle rock, CO. They report the brake fluid was full. Appears to have air in the brake line. They had already replaced the master cylinder and both front calipers. Service manager reported they really had no idea of what was wrong, but they replaced the modulator valve since it was the only remaining component they had not replaced. In none of the 3 failures could they find evidence of any fluid leaks. He said they had worked with gm engineering who could not offer any other solutions. I'm personally very worried about driving the vehicle and would absolutely not let my wife or anyone else drive it. This problem occurred on 11/04/09.
