What A Trip It's Been
By darkwolf927 on


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


Second car ever, lots of ups and downs.
Lots of little things, my electrical problems alone have been a total nightmare, the $2K price tag for the AC repairs, the extra-expensive profile tires, the fact that you can't replace ANYthing easily... but I'm trying not to complain here, and here's why.

Overall, I bought it used with 36k miles, 5 years later I just passed 265,000!
Eaten probably $5,000 in various repairs, and I never did get around to fixing that AC.

But it fits my family of 4, strollers and luggage, and I still marvel driving around on FL roads and watching it get 38 MPG.
Oh, and the stock stereo has killer bass!
Quarter million miles on the original trans & still going!

Best Features

Stereo, comfort (I'm 6'3, the PT I test drove before this had my knees in my chin), incredible mileage, and the 2.4 has some cahones!

Worst Features

Tall drivers have almost NO upward field of vision. I have to scrunch up between the steering wheel and the windshield to see most red lights.
