HHR PRETTY HAPPY
By SUNNY FLORIDA on
2008 Chevrolet HHR LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
6 months 8000 miles. Needed 2 trips to dealer to fix warped brake rotors and drums, broken rear hatch latch replaced. paid $19K for a leftovr 07, listed for $23K. The car delivers decent comfort & performance for price. It feels reliable, motor and trans. are okay. You will not feel or hear motor inside car, vibrates less then Japanese cars. Fuel economy is not up to par, I am averaging 17 MPG with mostly city driving. I use it for deliveries, hauling family stuff etc. Nice fold downs & roomy. Rattle free, I like the interior very much, simple, elegant nice fit finish. I am happy, although car is far from perfect, see suggested improvements below.
Sunroof, roominess, ease of entry exit, quiet, tight chasis. Turning radius is good. Design appeal. General Motors American made Ecotec engine & transmission. Good sound system, Pioneer speakers, plays MP3's & has input for portable player. Remote start is way cool. Design or aluminum wheels!
5 speed auto, Improved fuel mileage; city should be about 23 highway 33-34, Better traffic signal visibility, center console w more storage, the 2.4 High output does not have 177 Horse power, Standard rear disc brakes, paint chips too easily, better rotors, drums, pads, build in USA
