2006 Chevrolet HHR LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Bought April, 2012. When bought it had 50,432 on it, Just short of 2 years later it's at just over 90k. Average over 20k miles a year. The clutch still feels new and the 2.4 Ecotec hasn't skipped a beat! All this said, I have done the following: -Thermostat replaced (factory installed coolant caused premature breakdown of OEM part. (known issue) - Fixed broken sunroof wind deflector (common issue) - Replaced/upgraded front rotors (OEM known to warp), upgraded to ceramic pads. Total cost, about $230 to fix, all easily done at home. The one thing I will need to have done is suspension bushings. They're shot and make the car creak horribly in cold weather.

Best Features

- Sunroof - Surprisingly comfortable ride, and great handling - Ample cargo space - Retro styling - Great miles per gallon - Fairly quiet ride

Worst Features

Since it's out of production, nothing can be changed, but would have liked to have seen the following -Better interior fit and finish (cheap plastics) -4 wheel disc available on non SS -Better soundproofing around windows -Improved weld quality at bottom of doors (rust prone at joint) -Better suspension mounting components
