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


Review

Bought this vehicle brand new and saved $8000. I love the space for carrying stuff with the fold flat seats. It allows me to carry my daughter's drum kit. Very smooth ride. Swapped in Michelin X-Ice 2 tires. What a difference it made on icy roads...I'm passing everyone (legally). Very good on gas. Was starting to get a sore back sliding down into cars to get in...not anymore! This is the easiest vehicle to get into. No more sore back! Fantastic Pioneer sound system with the factory installed sub woofer in the rear. A lot of people have stopped to comment on the great looks and to ask me what I think of the vehicle. Seriously thinking about getting a second one. Great warranty too!


Best Features

So much space, comfortable multi adjustable seats. Fold flat seats. Great audio sound system. This is the most useful, fun, practical all around vehicle I have ever owned...and I have owned many (VW Eurovan, Audi, Prelude, Chrysler, Ford, Mitsubishi, Chevy Beauville, Malibu, Cavalier..


Worst Features

It's short a cup holder. Front windshield is a little low because I sit so high (6'2")...I'm looking out right near the top. HVAC controls are somewhat lightweight. Engine a little buzzy when throttling hard to get up to speed on the highway. V6 option. Standard heated seats.

2009 Chevrolet HHR LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my HHR in April of '09 and was just recently in an accident last week. The safety of this car is AWESOME!!! My 15 yr old daughter was with me and was saved from severe injury by the passenger side airbags and the strength of the frame. I was hit on the passenger side. I am waiting to hear from the insurance company to ti find out if I can get into another one!!


Best Features

The whole car!!!!!


Worst Features

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


Review

I bought a used 2009 HHR to replace my 2000 Pontiac Sunfire. I love it! It's comfortable, peppy,fuel-efficient, fun to drive, and handles well.


Best Features

I love the spacious cargo room in the back and the retro 1940s exterior.


Worst Features

A slightly larger rear view window would improve rear-view visibility, although the big side mirrors make up for the smallish rear window.

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


Review

This car is just plain fun! Love how it looks, great feature with the DIC, mileage is better than advertised and it looks good. I got it in black, having never owned a Chevy or a black car and do NOT regret the purchase. I am only 5'1" and my daughter is 4'11" and we can see well, gives the feel of being up high!


Best Features

Looks, versatility of the cargo area, stereo and DIC.


Worst Features

I knew about it ahead of time, but what is with those cupholders? Also wish there was a a console in the center of the two front seats. (Which could also serve as armrests.

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


Review

Wow! What a nice set of wheels. I purchased this 2009 HHR in Dec. and have 1000 miles on it. I have the H.O 2.4 which has a lot of guts. With the LT2 package, it is loaded. The only thing that is missing is a telescoping steering wheel. I absolutely love it. It's like riding on a rail. Love the electronic power steering. Upscale feeling all the way. Bright red and chrome wheels makes this 65 yr. old feel a bit younger. Lot's of room for the grandkids and their stuff. GM has a winner in the HHR and so do I.


Best Features

Leather seats, power everything,XM radio. On star(lowers insurance costs) and is a great safety feature. Lot's of power and smooth tranny.


Worst Features

Telescoping steering wheel and coin holder.
