Since you had the 2.4 L. engine...how was your "real" mpg? And how was it with highway and mountain driving?
I'm not a lead foot driver because I prefer putting money in my wallet instead of in my tank.
I'm always trying to get the maximum economies out of my driving and always loyal to the maintenance done on my car.

I consider the 2,4 as the best effort GM has ever made---read up on it,s history sometime,that,s what caused me to early order the HHRLT1 w/option 2.4 in place of 2.2. Mileage & performance was always as advertised & I ejoyed handling more than acceleration, but quickly easing into traffic was very important too. The 2,2was sorely lacking in this area.
.Except for wanting XM & onstar, I would have put another 60K on it .Best fitting & most fun car I ever owned, including my 64 vette custom.------If it had only been a little quieter------

Thank you for your reply (len79), you are so reassuring with your comments on the HHR. Yes it seems to be a very fun machine to own and drive but that noise problem that I read kind of scared me, but seeing that you adored yours and had no problems makes me feel so good and now I can't wait to get it and bring it home..
I'm still waiting for it, placed an order on the 8th of march and the dealer said that it must be just around the corner. Could come in any time now within 2 weeks.

I almost got a 2010 HHR just for onstar & XM, but it would have cost me almost as much as the Equinox & isn,t as sophisticated. Another strong point:: my short wife likes to be high on the road <g
