No more American cars
By Wish I skipped this on
2008 Chevrolet HHR LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
At first the car was great! Then both remotes died the first year-2x! The brakes are terrible! THEIR brochure for scheduled maintenance says they 'visually inspect' them. What good is that if I need new brakes? I can't get new (better) ones without nullifying the warranty. So I'm stuck with theirs. When the rotors get wet and I brake, the entire front panel shakes. I've already repaired it 2x (warranty) and it has occurred again. I don't live in the desert so why have a design that warps when wet? I had a Saturn SL1 from 1995-2001 which sat lower than this car and never had this problem. This is my LAST American car. Saturn shouldn't be the GM branch closing!! And hubcaps? SERIOUSLY!?!
400-425mi per tank; excellent acceleration on highway; GREAT sound system; auto body is beautiful
Fix warping DEFECT - makes the car feel like a toy; lose hubcaps on EVERY model; use quality brake pads that can actually be replaced when NEEDED without waiting until rotors will be damaged AND without being cost prohibitive. A 5 person car needs 5 cup holders. Raise radio/window controls - SAFETY
