Chevrolet HHR Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Just bought an 06 leftover. 2LT with auto, polished 17" wheels, roof rails, block heater. Dealer added running boards, rear spoiler, splash guards and bumper cover. Sticker was 21,395 paid 16,900. I would not have ordered a new one with leather and sunroof so it worked out well. I am very impressed with the vehicle. Already took a 200 mile trip and the car performed very well. Nice quit ride and handles well.

    That was a win the best deal trophy!!! Congrats!
  • Thanks. Great value. First American car i've bought in 12 years. 2 C-class Mercedes and an Audi A4 1.8T quattro. The Mercedes is in a class of it's own. However, this is pretty close to the A4 in performance and handling. No, i'm not kidding. 80% there for half the money. Now talk to me at 25,000 miles. But for now i'm very pleased.

    On the rare occaision that you want move briskly away from a stop light....I recommend left foot on brake, give gas with right...= best jump!
  • We have had our HHR for about a month. I love it. We ended up sending out for quotes for a 2006 model. We got back quite a few. We ended up going ot a dealership in georgia, we are in alabama, the dealership was great. They didnt have the exact one we went to look at since it sold the night before. They did end up giving a $21,000 HHR for $16,500. After my GM card rewards we ended up with the car for $12,800. What a deal. The car has a roof rack, sunroof, and leather heated seats. I think the HHR is a wonderful car and my frind that has a PT Cruiser likes the HHR better.

    Wow, that was a DEAL. Which engine / transmission does it have?
  • It is a 4 cylinder LT model. :)
  • smogdungsmogdung Posts: 349
    I mean is it the 2.2 L or the 2.4 L engine, & is it an automatic or a 5 speed manual transmission?
  • it is the 2.4 L. and automatic

    Aren't you afraid GM might turn you in for having stolen the car?

    It was just too good of a deal. :) I dont know if the dealership would have gone low if they knew we had maxed out our GM card rewards. This is the third time we bought a car using the rewards.

    Does anyone out there have any advice for where to shop for an extended warranty for an 06 hhr with less than 10000 miles that any chevrolet dealer will fix. thank you :sick: :shades:
  • Hi Jenmike! I do not quite understand how were you able to apply $3700 of GM card earnings to an HHR? Isn't the maximum allowances $1000 only? Thanks.
  • jenmikejenmike Posts: 11
    the old world gm card you can max out at $3500. there was another gm card that came out that is only $1000 max

    For the first couple of years the gold card was $1,000 / year up to $7,000/ year....those of us with the original card are now allowed 500/year up to 3500 max and it can all be applied to any vehicle. When the run a special I suppose they do that temp add-on...that must be how he was allowed to get more than 3500 toward one vehicle? What's cool is to talk them down first, then get a public GM rebate, then get your card rebate on top! I even got an extra 600 for not taking the 60,000 miles warranty they were giving to Olds as they were closing shop....after 70,000 miles & never back to the shop...I'm glad the $ instead of the extended waranty.

    I just purchased an '07 LT w/5 spd and the 2.2L engine for 12995. I gather from reading this thread that it was a decent price. I've had it for just a week but so far it's been great. I love the gas mileage it gets.
  • smogdungsmogdung Posts: 349
    I'm consistently getting right at 30 mpg with my 5 speed 2.2L Ecotec 2003 Alero. The HHR probably weighs 2-300 lbs more. About 70,000 miles & never been back to the shop. 13K for for that 07 2.2 5 speed HHR...that's a great price....what was the original sticker ..about $18 K ? My wife's 2.4L HHR w/automatic aves about 25-26 mpg. I'm guessing you'll get 28-29 mpg.

    I drive mostly freeway to work (30miles one way) and I average 30-32 for the most part. Sticker was about 18,600 but I got it as one of the "one at this price" sales. I'd been shopping around for an HHR for awhile and when I called the dealer they still had the "one" advertised so I went and bought it.

    Just bought my 2007 2LT HHR - loaded.

    Leather, running boards, Auto, Sunroof, good stereo, 2LT pkg.

    Went through Costco. Paid $1300 below $24,400 sticker, plus I got $1500 from GM, so out the door with taxes and bs prep charges, title, tags, etc: $22709

    I love it. I recommend the leather seats, too.

    Just bought an LT with the chrome package, sunroof, 2.4 auto....paid 18500 out the question though...does the rear spoiler option keep the dirt off the back hatch/window? We drove it about 400 miles last weekend and it was absolutely coated in dust and dirt.
