HHR, Lot's of Miles, Can it last a longer trip?


Asked by Nov 14, 2014 at 11:55 AM about the 2009 Chevrolet HHR LS

Question type: General

I have a 2009 Chevy HHR LS , a 2.4 Liter I believe, and I bought it last year at around
134k miles. I'm at around 165.6k as of now, I get oil changes regularly, maintain its
antifreeze and all the good stuff. But next month I want to take a road trip from around
Chicago, IL to Branson, MO. It's about a 1,200 mile round trip and I only have access to
this car. Do you think it'll make the trip?

I see many newer vehicles with over 300,000 miles that are still running well. I do not see why any new car could not do 500,000 miles if maintained properly. I am sure there are a few exceptions to that rule but I do not think your HHR is problamatic

How well was it maintained before you got it? Has the transmission been checked? Do that, check the belts and hoses, change the motor oil if need be, the shocks and tires good? Enjoy the drive and don't worry. Be happy.
