2008 Chevrolet HHR LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

Review

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!?!

Favorite Features

400-425mi per tank; excellent acceleration on highway; GREAT sound system; auto body is beautiful

Suggested Improvements

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
