Customer Question

I am looking at a 2009 HHR LS with 32,000 miles for $10988. It is the style I need and the price is right, but after reading complaints and the recall#28386 I wonder how common these incidents are. The CARFAX on the car says there have been no recalls, so how reliable is that? I am partly disabled and cannot be stranded somewhere. could use some advice.
