Nice, but...

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


Coming from F250 4dr diesel, I cried. Owned 3 wks now, avg 800mi/wk. Still miss truck! Likes; 27mpg avg, rides tall/nice, XM radio, AC can cool 3bdrm house, remote start, chrome pkg, good space for its size, mid-life-criss-red, cool looks. Dislikes; 2.2L slow (b careful pulling into traffic), tan interior dirties easily, drop on-star(?), 6' tall-rt leg cramps-seat won't go back far enough, MGP counter .2 to 1mi/gal optimistic vs actual calc. Totally useless; armrests block rr cupholder, at nite-interior lights in rearview mirror useless & sunvisor completly useless when pulled toward the dr side window! Needs sm diesel opt. After 17.5mpg in that big F250 want only diesel engines-(pwr + mpg!)

Best Features

Long interval between oil changes - est 12-15K mi's. Wife likes it! Tire press monitor, XM radio. Cool body style!

Worst Features

Needs sm diesel eng opt-pwr & mpg! Fix visor to block sun thru dr's side window. Add dr's dome lite. Peddles too close to seat. Recal MPG-avg counter. Left tire psi increase faster than rt tires?
