Oil, oil, air and cabin air filters changed today on my 2008 Chevy HHR LS. The mileage on the odometer is as shown in the attached picture. Also, the tailgate release mechanism was replaced, but that did not alleviate the tailgate's failure to pop problem.
Upon inspection, I found that the left front strut blew it's bottom seal. It probably took too much stress on the unimproved road in the Arc of Appalachia.
