#4 of 5 Many issues with 2006 HHR
Jun 30, 2013 (5:48 pm)
I bought my HHR about 2 years ago. Within 2 months the serpentine belt went, cost me $900 dollars. The dealer chipped in $300, I've had to replace the tires, battery, front and rear brakes and sway bar. The check engine light seems to be on every other month. Now the traction control light is on along with the check engine light. I traded my old car in bc the heat was gone. I should've kept it bc I never had this many issues with it and you can always bundle up. It's very disappointing bc I love the style, room and the extras however I can't afford to keep up with issues. I have to say the car is a lemon and I wish I never bought it. The sad part is I mainly use it for work and back and that's only 5 miles away. It can't even handle that. I will never buy a Chevy again and when people ask me about the car, which happens quite often, I'm going to continue to tell them don't waste your time and money.

So...I guess you'll never eat apples again because you found 1 bad apple in the basket?
The problem is...you bought a "lemon". Lemons exists in all kind of car brands...Ford, Chevrolet, Toyota, Nissan,...name it, you got it.
Would you believe that my HHR turned 3 yrs old and I never had an issue during those 3 years, 28 thousand miles...only went to the garage for regular maintenance.
P.S. And I know lots of people than own HHR's and are very happy...trouble free.
