2011 Chevrolet HHR LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Overall a really great car. It looks better, is more fun to drive, and has better cargo storage than comparable cars. It's rare to get a hatchback in this price with masculine design lines. Most look so feminine/cute/wimpy. With huge rebates in place now because 2011 is the last model year, this is a great deal.


Favorite Features

Average over 30mpg on every tank - tops so far is 33.5mpg on one tank. Hard plastic storage shelf in rear cargo is strong and can hold 50+lbs. This turns the rear trunk into a 2-tiered storage system. Brilliant! Other cars just have privacy screens, which can't hold anything on top - wasted space. This is more fun to drive and nimbler than my last car -a much more expensive Accord Coupe. Incredible cargo storage for such a small car, which can fit in tight city spots. Decent acceleration with manual trans.


Suggested Improvements

Wipers always sweep once before washer fluid comes out - really annoying way for them to get caked-on dirt before cleaning the windshield. Outward visibility is the worst I've ever seen from the tiny windshield/side windows. Driving up to the line at a stoplight, you won't see the light at all when it changes. Massive amounts of torque steer at all times, not just during acceleration. Hope this can get fixed under warranty. Narrow inside - your elbows are closer to the front passenger's than you might expect. Really bad interior storage (no center console) although rear cargo storage is great. Car that stickers for $20K should have alloy wheels, not hub caps, and standard floor mats.

2011 Chevrolet HHR LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We bought a new 2011 Chevy HHR LS with the My Link package because it had everything we needed for our business. From the interior room of an SUV to the gas savings of a small car the HHR has been fun to drive and it is easy to load packages for shipment. Our website business, [HTML deleted], uses the HHR for shipments, carrying and picking up new inventory and advertising. In the future we plan to add advertising decals on the exterior to make it stick out from the others. The HHR has exceeded our expectations with its comfort and convenience. We have over 1,500 miles in just about a month of owning it with no problems.


Favorite Features

The Remote start system is just an added bonus. We really like OnStar, Bluetooth and the XM radio. The HHR came with a lot of standard options which was great for the price range and we couldn't have asked for anything more. With the type of winters we get here having the traction control with a front wheel drive was essential.


Suggested Improvements

Nothing. The HHR has truly exceeded our expectations even though many of the reviews were good for this model.

2011 Chevrolet HHR LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Own a 2009 2LT version. It does everything I wanted it to. I'd only change a few things: 1. install four wheel disc brakes instead of the "disc/drum" brake combination. 2. install the full roof rack instead of just half of it and expecting the buyer to purchase the other half as an aftermarket option. 3. upgrade the radio/cd player so its more robust. CD's keep sticking inside the player necessitating playing games to get them unstuck. 4. change the engine intake air filter housing design. The housing removal is a major pain when you want to change out filters.

Review

Wife and I bought this car about a year back. So far we use it for all of our trips and like the quiet ride. We now have 35k on it and it runs like a dream. Smooth auto trans and quite peppy for 2.2 - 4 cyl engine. We can get all the groceries, and all of our newborns equipment in the hatch. We get between 26.5-28mpg on average. Fun little car, we have enjoyed it so far. Wish they didn't discontinue them!


Favorite Features

Good gas mileage. Nice exterior styling. Affordable price.


Suggested Improvements

Materials inside are a tad cheap.
