Anybody see the Car and Driver article where they pitted a $26,000 fully loaded 230HP PT against a $19,000 1LT HHR...the HHR had the 16s and no sport suspension ...yet it matched the $27K PT Turbo in the lateral acceleration #s...shame they didn't pick a 2LT with the 17s and sport suspension in the comparo.

    Isn't the HHR based on the Cobalt suspension? The PT is based on the Neon suspension. That's nothing to brag about :)

    The HHR is based on the Cobalt/Ion suspension which is a rather good suspension that is tight and rides very well. The Neon according to the write ups has a descent suspension but not quite as good as the Cobalt's.

  • I purchase a HHR 07 and when I put on brakes, I hear a clunk sounds as if a can is rolling around. I took it back to the dealership and they said the rear plate was loose. I still hear the noise and i took it to two other dealership and they said it fuel sloshing in the tank. Does anyone else hear this sound when they put on brakes.

    Our 2008 sound lke that it was coming from the front. The dealer ended up changing to a reengineered suspension link. After numerous trips to the dealer they were able to sopt the noise.

    Not a peep out of mine, but I have the FE5 suspension package.

  • My 07 HHR LS makes a horrible pop from the front suspension, but only on really cold mornings and only on the 2 mile dirt driveway I have to traverse every morning. My dealer, and all suspension places are 50 miles away, where it is warm and smooth, so no one can recreate the sound. I assume it is a rubber or urethane piece that shrinks in the cold, and returns to normal whenever anyone looks at it. Anyone else have a similar problem??

  • Have them to check stabilizer bushing or stabilizer.
