2008 Chevrolet HHR SS 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
After reading all the brake problems, i hope this will not happen to the ss. I just bought a red ss and cannot tell you how pleased I am with it. With the 260 hp eco tech turbo engine, it is a little rocket. The ss specific interior is comfortable and well designed. The 5-speed shifts firm and quick. The exterior ss specific ground effects, 18 inch wheels with speed rated tires filled with nitrogen, paint finish and door gap fit is the best I've seen in a long time. Oh yes, the smaller steering wheel and quicker steering make this thing loads of fun to drive. It is quick. It also has larger 4-wheel disc brakes that stop great. so far happy as a clam with it.
260hp of course with 28-29 mpg. Its good looks. Stands out from other HHR's. Window switches on the doors.
If GM would come out with a 6 speed automatic with maybe paddle shifters, this thing would be just dynamite.
