Why are there so many HHRs on the market?
Is there anything wrong with them? I know
not to buy one above a 2010.
Most people have all kinds of issues with them check online you can't miss it. Curious why there no longer manufactured? This was Bryan Nesbitt's second try at the design, The PT cruise was his first
We had a 2008 model Panel HHR as a delivery vehicle at work. In the beginning (we got it with 100 miles on it) it was ok except for the banging/klunking in the front end that nobody, including the Chevy Dealer, could fix. As it got older the electronic doors became a REAL pain in the neck! They stopped popping open when you pressed the button. Even after lubricating the latches! Since it was a panel wagon visibility was absolutely zero! Driving it on the expressway was always "fun". Change lanes slowly and listen for a horn! The battery is under the rear cargo area, next to the spare ("donut") tire. To change the headlight bulbs the front inner fender has to come out. I was able to do it without completely removing the inner fender but my arm got scraped up! Mechanically it ran fine for the 125,000 miles we had it. But then the exhaust system came apart at the catalytic converter so the company decided not to fix it. Which, by the way, is low miles for a delivery vehicle to be retired. My S-10 pick up was retired at 264,000 miles. So in the grand scheme of things the HHR was retired early. HTH. -Jim
