I wrote Chevy about the rattle issue. I have it, and it's all over the net that others do as well. Spoke with someone who didn't sound native to GM land. He denied that they were hearing of any issues. My complaint same as many others here and elsewhere on net. Dash, steering rattle...worse upon braking or rough ground. Yet, "nope, not here, thank you very much"..
Sad to see an Icon lapse into mediocrity...........

Have you had a dealer look into the noise? Who did you speak with? Did they set up a case for you?

Yes Christina I have heard from GM Customer service. They have said I should take the car in for evaluation at my own cost. I have to drive 50 miles to the dealer, rent a car, drive home. Return the next day (maybe) then pay for the evaluation and most likely the repair. Cost ??? GM rep. says she cannot know if it will be covered by GM. This was a very frustrating phone call and just served to convince me that GM is just hot air.
GM knows they have a problem. I have fixed all of the leaks, bad fan motor, blower speed resistors and brakes at my own cost, time and labor.
It looks like I'll be on the hook for this also.
This will be the last GM vehicle I will buy. I also will assure you there will be no good will in my family circle for GM. We are moving to other brands.
I'm through with this and no longer want to hear from GM. Bye.
#1527 of 1606 Convex mirrors "spotters".
Apr 25, 2011 (4:04 pm)
My 2010 2LT has "blind spot mirrors" or spotter mirrors". They are convex mirrors factory installed.
While washing my HHR today, I noticed that my "convex mirrors" are starting to be eroded all around, I thought they where just dirty but no, it's a kind of erosion. When you touch it it's rough like rust on metal but that erosion is all around the mirror.
Do you think I could get them replaced on warranty?
Those convex mirrors seems to be glued in the superior corner of the original mirror.
The truck is only 1 year old and it's starting to show pretty bad, what will they look like next year?

I would encourage you to contact your local GM dealership. Please keep me posted on any information from the dealership.

I own a 2010 HHR 2LT and I want to bring my cooler that you can plug in a 12 V outlet.
In my other vehicle it was working fine and when I plugged it in My HHR it didn't work.
I tried it in my friends car to see if the problem wouldn't be the cooler but it works fine in my friends car.
Is there a special outlet somewhere in the HHR to plug some electrical accesories like my cooler?

I went to my GM dealer today for the oil change and they did a little maintenance check at the same time.
On my maintenance report sheet that they gave me I noticed that they had written "tires inflated at 30 p.s.i.".
This was done my a GM mechanic and as long as I know of those original tires aren't suppose to be at 35 p.s.i.?
At 30 p.s.i. it seems to be pretty low, don't you think? And it was done at a GM dealer by a GM "certified" mechanic.
Should I bring them back at 35 p.s.i.?
What are your tires usually inflated at?

With the 2LT it has the 215/50/17 tires which require 35psi. The label inside your driver's door will specify this. I have gotten to the point of politely reminding the service advisor that I have the 17 inch tires that require 35 psi. Most HHRs have 16 inch tires, and they require 30 psi. Easy to confuse..
#1532 of 1606 Tire replacement
Aug 06, 2011 (3:43 pm)
At 41000 miles I replaced the Firestone GTAs. They still had decent tread left, and no complaints overall. My initial intent was to replace with Michelin Primacy. I did a fair amount of research and ended up with Sumitomo HTR all season. They had good reviews and I was able to get them installed for $500 total. The original Firestone tires must have low rolling resistance even though they aren't marketed that way. My gas mileage promptly decreased 1-2 mpg. The tests that I reviewed concerning the Sumitomos said they were average in rolling resistance. I am happy with them so far. The ride smoothly, quietly. No vibrations at higher speeds. Better yet, they tightened up the handling and the car seems less prone to wandering when I cruise down the straight away.
#1533 of 1606 Buying '07 HHR
Sep 01, 2011 (4:25 pm)
Im getting a good deal as far as price goes on a Chevy HHR 2007 with 30,000 miles but im confused on the reliability of this vehicle. Ive been reading alot of problems about it. The consumer report says its got a horrible suspension and brake build on it and what i need to know is this going to be a good investment because im getting it for cheap? What are the repair cost and how often do these repairs need to be made and at what milage. Any comments would be helpful from HHR owners but preferably someone who doesn't own i new car because i know you will say that you love and so on. I need information! I don't know how long this car will stay on the lot but hopefully long enough for me to complete my research! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
