2008 Chevrolet HHR Wagon LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Actually fell for this car first time I saw it. Been waiting a few years for GM to work out the bugs in it. I love it, and is just fun to drive. Gas mileage great, and enjoy driving the 5-speed manual for a change. Love the retro body style!


Best Features

Love the shape, handling, and also the placement of the window openers! Gas mileage great, and also feel I received a really good price on the vehicle for what I got. Also like the OnStar feature.


Worst Features

Not sure, but I know GM will come up with something!

2008 Chevrolet HHR Wagon LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Serves its purpose for my wife's business. Very good cargo room with the seats folded down. Decent interior room. We looked at everything in that class that was under 20 thousand and this seemed like the best.


Best Features

The cargo room. Seems like it's built solidly. The highway mileage is very good. Just got back from a trip and averaged 29 on the highway.


Worst Features

Improve the steering. Move the window controls. Put a center console in. Improve the seats, not very comfortable and also seem too high. Rear hatch does not go high enough for anyone over 5'10".

2008 Chevrolet HHR Wagon LT 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Since Purchase have put 8K on with no issues at all. 2LT Pkg great and radio with upgraded speakers is very good. Car comfortable but I will never get used to the window buttons in the middle console! 17 inch tires great on dry pavement/wet but snow is so-so. Well satistfied so far!


Best Features

Stereo, leather power heated seats. Looks with chrome pkg, Good MPG, in dash storage compartment.


Worst Features

Relocate window controls, also need more storage somewhere

Review

My wife and I have made 2 trips from Phx. Az to Bogalusa, Louisiana (1551 miles) this year and have averaged over 37 miles per gallon. Our gas only cost us $60 each way. Not bad at all. It is very comfortable on a long trip and has plenty of space for luggage and our dog. On the long stretches I put it on cruise control and she just hummed up and down hills. We love this car.


Best Features

We like the Cardinal Red paint scheme cause it almost looks like Candy Apple Red. The interior is clean and everything is handy. The seats are very comfortable and the instruments are clear and visible. The storage under the rear deck is also very convenient. We also like the running boards.


Worst Features

I can't think of any. They have pretty much hit the nail on the head with this car. This is my 10th Chevy.

Review

When my wife & I were looking for a commuter car, we started at Honda (you want how much!?), went to Toyota, Hyundai, Mazda, & Nissan (almost went with the Rogue); our last stop was at the good old Chevy dealer as an almost patriotic afterthought but we were pleasantly surprised by the value of this car, gets acceptable mileage, lots of stock doodads, power is adequate (but surprising for a 4 banger). With the rear seats folded it holds lots. It can even be used as the family of 4 car (or short time replacement when the sport ute or mini van is being serviced). Yep, we think it was a great buy and would recommend. (Just wish we went with the LT for the better seats & don't get the sunroof).


Best Features

Plenty of room for a small car. Good bright standard lights. OnStar. Better "Ole Stylin" than your granpa's sweater vest.


Worst Features

Put car window switches back on the doors (just like god intended). Better interior night lighting. Skinny up the front window posts. Wider view side mirrors standard. Better mileage on this engine.
