Yeah I plan on replacing my G20 with an HHR but that can change in two years. One things for sure, I'm not buying another Infiniti. Love my G20 but parts for repairs are very costly. So now that GM has finally gotten its act together, I'll be happy to buy another GM product. Gonna be either a Saturn or Chevy.

We have two GM products.....04 Chevy Malibu Maxx and 06 Pontiac Solstice...and love them both.....Maxx has almost 82K on it..and no problems....this one will go to the HHR probably in another 18 months or so.....patiently gonna wait for the turbo HHR.....

Apparently the HHR SS is a reality and will be out in 2008.
Does anyone know if the SS will have a decent traction control system similar to the now defunct MAXX SS (i.e., braking a spinning, tractionless wheel)?
Or will the HHR SS use the cheapo "cut the power" gambit which has proven less than helpful on many GM cars?

I know the one year rumor is over and it has been officially announced, but if its a 2008 model and not a 2009, it will be released this year as a 2008 I would think.

It should be nice for those wanting that kind of power. I would imaging it should do pretty close to a 14-second quarter mile.
#9 of 17 Few more details (suprised they haven't been posted yet)
Sep 06, 2007 (4:04 pm)
2.0l ecotec turbochrged/ 260HP with 5Spd, 235 with 4 spd-auto. FE5 sport suspension with specific stabilizer bars, spring rates and damper tuning. Lateral grip of .86 g with MT. 4 wheel ABS disc brakes
New air dam-style front fascia with fog lamps
New mesh-style upper and lower grilles
New rear fascia with outlet for single bright exhaust tip
Rear spoiler (mounted above rear glass)
New rocker moldings
Body-color door handles, mirror caps and rear license plate surround
SS badges on the front doors and rear liftgate
Plus a few more odds and ends like no lift shift on MT version I believe. Not sure I have seen anything on quater mile, but have heard of 155MPH top speed. Might be real interesting thing to drive

Seems like a shame that they didn't go with a 6 spd manual and the 6 speed auto that will be in the new Malibu?
