2006 Chevrolet HHR LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Updates "Smooth Ride" 7/22/09 and "Needed new engine at 71,000 miles pm 8/22/09. Car would not start. Got jumped, went a mile, car died big time. Towed to dealer. $816 for new alternator. Battery is still OK. If you buy an American car new, get that 100,000 mile warranty!

Worst Features

Outrageous that alternator should die at 98,000 miles on a 2006 car.

I must say that the car may or may not be a good one, I don't know, but if you paid $816 for a new alternator, you know nothing about cars!!!!! Also, it is not outrageous that the alternator should die at 98,000 miles! Yes, you would like it to last longer, but plenty of alternators screw up well before or around that mileage! I can't take your word about this car due to the fact you don't know what you are talking about! thanks.
