Buyer Beware
By michaellrar on


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


Bought it for the "fun factor" and was disappointed. It has massive blind spots. Also thought I purchased new and the dealership sold me a demo and did not tell me. Found out after I got my papers in the mail. The controls for the window are in an unsafe place (they have since fixed that I heard). The drink cup holders are a joke at best. I am a big guy so the seat belts take an act of congress to fasten. And did I mention the wimpy armrest that points down when lowered. The tires have the constant tire pressure monitoring system so I am constantly refilling the tires. Needless to say I only drive it about 6,000 miles per year and that is when my daily driver (a 2002 honda civic) is being serviced.

Best Features

sunroof; gets 29 mpg highway

Worst Features

None. Would not recommend buying new or used. It depreciated 50% when I drove it off the lot and nobody wants a used one at any price.
