2009 Chevrolet HHR Wagon LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Great car, fun to drive, bad rotors, it is like the last four cobolts I have owned, brakes vibrate due to rotors, they said don't use them going down hill ?


Best Features

Looks and lots of room inside


Worst Features

Cruise control switch mounted, or recessed, too easy to bump on, much better quality brakes

2009 Chevrolet HHR Wagon LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my HHR LT in August of 2010. When I saw it on the lot I didn't give it a 2nd look, but after test driving it, it was a fun car to drive. I've had it about a month and have found it to be a roomy, zippy, fun car to drive. I never would've seen myself in an HHR, but I really like it.


Best Features

Roominess...sporty...great stereo/speaker system


Worst Features

Interior has way too much plastic

Review

I bought a rental car with 8200 miles. Fuel mileage is not terrific (18-21 on E85)(45 with my vw bug diesel), but well built, and handles well with proper tire inflation. Light switch has odd quirk (goes off when bright to dim and dim to bright for split second). Torque steer when accelerating is startling (hang on). I like the storage in the middle of the dash, but not a whole lot of storage around the driver is available. The small windshield takes a little getting used to. I wish the adjustment on the steering wheel was greater.This car would be great with a dash like a Peterbilt (straight dash with lots of gauges). Long trips are very nice, however more cupholders would be nice.


Best Features

Flex fuel. (I felt smart during gulf BP crisis. Well built. No rattles. Styling. It's a small station wagon (which I love) Steering is great, weighed steering, handles well when pushed. With the back seat folded down, there is room for my four dogs. I like the drivers seat for longer trips.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy, A second cigarette lighter, bumpers seem cheap and flimsy. Different headlight switch with no absence of light for split second. Middle console. Carpeted section in the back with the seats folded down (my dogs skittered around before I installed carpeting). no telescoping.

Review

I love my new HHR! I've had it a month, put 1000 highway miles on it and I couldn't ask for better performance. It's zippy, economical, comfortable and roomy! Thanks, Chevy for a great little car!

Review

It has been exactly 1 year with my ride, hate the name hhr but love the ride, this baby took me down some dirt and Grass roads to find deer camps and other nonexistent buildings, it handled every situation with control including some deep mud, and deep ruts, my husband has pointed out a few scratches from driving through bushes, car was great, onstar phone was also a blessing to know it was there with cell phone not having coverage. 2 months with 8 hour a day driving I got to know this car, the last week I noticed it a little sluggish at accelerating. may have dust in air cleaner, gotta get it checked out, no other problems, great back area for my big dog and for hauling auction goodies.


Best Features

Very comfortable for long drive, ease with you turns and turning around in small spaces, cargo space can haul small dresser some chairs and boxes in one trip
