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


I get 35mpg on the highway (manual trans) and about 24 in town. The styling is good and it is fun to drive for the money. I baby the vehicle and take extreme care of it, but question what I am up for long term regarding quality (based on experience so far). Month 1 headliner rattle getting worse fast, Month 2 Engine squeal needs repaired through service bulletin, Month 3 gold chevy emblem on back has water in it, Month 4 noticed knock in front suspension when cold, Month 5 brakes squeal at EVERY stop, Month 6 inside coat hook is stuck in up position, Month 7 Window grease in door is streaking driver window, Month 8 radio quits. Haven't had it 9 months yet. Wonder what is next??????

Best Features

Bright Red, good mileage, good price, fun to drive with manual trans.

Worst Features

Maybe the engineers should drive this vehicle a few thousand miles and actually engineer fixes for the problems. Take a look at the HHR forums where the same problems as mine are being discussed. Never had these problems with our PT Cruiser...
