2006 Chevrolet HHR Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet HHR
HHR is no longer produced, as it was such a good car.
The HHR has been the perfect size combination and durability, really in all the time I have had it I have had no real mechanical issues other that which would be expected with the age of the car. I have had an accident with the car and I was told if it wouldn't have been an HHR it would have been totaled, but since the car was built on a truck chassis it was repaired and you would never know it had been through what happened to it. I bought this car new, I was able to personally design the pin striping and decoration of it, chose all the details available and loved it hoping that as it got older I could get another. Unfortunately Chevrolet has decided in their infinite wisdom these cars were too good so they no longer produce them.
Reliable and safe 4 cylinder lt.
Overall this has been a good quality car. The only problems I experienced were a recall on the electrical switch, replacement fuel injectors, and replacement of camshaft actuator solenoid. The solenoid could cause problems with your timing. The vehicle would not shift properly when reaching certain speeds and would cause the car to jerk extremely hard. I am the only owner to this vehicle and after 12 years and 106, 000 miles, it is still a reliable vehicle. Good maintenance and this car will be a good vehicle for years.
Great gas mileage and hauling space for a smaller crossover/wagon style
I typically love my vehicle. It does not handle as well I would like it in the snow as it does not have traction control that I can activate myself. It is quite difficult to change out the lamps in the headlights. I do love the fact that it is great on gas mileage and has a ton of room to haul things for a vehicle of that size. If they still made them, I would buy a new version. I know that the newer models had more features. It is a solid car if a bit wimpy in more severe weather.
Love my craft hauling vehicle.
My HHR has been so reliable for me. It seats 5 comfortably and has a backspace that will fit all my groceries from Costco with easy access via the hatch back of tailgate. I purchased it used in 2011 and I participate in craft vendor fairs and with the back seats folded down I can haul 3 6 foot folding tables, 4 large plastic storage totes. Have been very happy with my HHR and have not had any major repairs. It also handles well in the snow.
Great car. Good gas mileage and very reliable.
I have 210, 000 miles with no issues regular service and maintenance very reliable car with a lot of room inside gets up to 29 mpg on highway. 22 mpg in city. It uses no oil, change the oil every 8000-10000 miles. I use the high mileage oil for best protection. I bought this car when it had 87000 miles on it. Since I have only serviced, tires and brakes. We put around 4000 miles per month on it as we travel a lot on business.
I love it !!!! I would recommend purchasing this car for local and long distance driving to all my friends and family members.
When I was looking for a small compact car I checked out 2 and the HHR was my final choice. It is an easy car to drive and park and has given me great memories of my numerous trips. It is good on gas mileage. I have many compliments on my choice of car and color!! Color, it's orange and I call it my pumpkin car!!! I recently found how easy it is to park since I was faced with parallel parking and it was easy to relearn.
The car I own in a 2006 Chevy HHR . It is a silver color with tan interior.
My family has owned this car for a little over ten years. It has gone through three kids learning to drive, and my parents gave it to me to help me get through college. The car has 190, 000 miles on it and there have been a few problems, but they have been minor problems. The car still runs well. However, my biggest complaint would be the passenger door leaks when it rains, flooding the passenger floor.
Chevy HHR is a great, reliable car.
My Chevy HHR is very reliable. I make a two hour (one way) drive and back at least twice a month, as well as regular day-to-day travel, and it gets great gas mileage. The heated seats are comfortable and the air/heat keeps the interior at a comfortable temperature no matter what the weather is like. The only complaint I have is that it is a little small and it would be nice to have a bit more room.
A great car. Reliable good on gas and spacious enough without being a SUV.
The cars is good on gas. It is a nice size for a small family. The seats let down for more storage if need be. I dislike the tires it always seems as if they are low on pressure. The car is great on the highway. It really does pick up speed and keeps going. I just hate that is gets pushed easy when the wind is blowing hard.
I like it and I think it has been a pretty decent car for me.
I like that it is a small SUV or crossover. When I bought it I was looking for something that could haul my loads but that wasn't too big to control. I also like it's gas usage. It's pretty good for its size. I did not like that the power steering went out and that there was a small leak I had to get repaired.
