Chevrolet HHR Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • It looks like 2007 LS models have a 2000 rebate and the LT model has a 2500 rebate. I was in the market for a used one, but might consider new now...
  • The dealer I went to had rebates on both the 07s and 08s... Base 07s were at $14500 , automatics were at 15500, and ones with the stain package were at 16000. Although I dont think there are any 08 rebates on the chevy website, the dealer said there were, which was fine with me... In fact during negotiation, the lead sales guy said he found an extra $500 rebate to take off the price...which was again, fine by me. This dealership still has around 25 HHRs on the lot, and is trying to get rid of them.
  • Need some advice on 2007 HHR price. I was offered a LS A/T at 14450. That's $500 under invoice and after $2000 rebate. A/T is the only option besides standard. Is this price good? How possiblely lower can I try?

    Being that its an 07 im not sure how much lower you can get it. With the auto its nice that it comes standard with the traction control. Maybe you could try to have them throw in some floor mats or something.
  • Looking at buying a 2008 HHR LT2. Victory Red ebony leather interior lots of options, MSRP is 23,975.00 have a price qoute of 21,771.00 that includes the 1500.00 rebate, so they have basically knocked off 704.oo off sticker, thinking I should be able to do better than that. With california sales tax and registration that would get me back to the sticker price out the door. How much should I expect them to knock price down before the Rebate. Anybody seen a HHR with AA5 option (solid rear quarter panel) ?

    Normally after a vehicles is out a couple months one can usually expect about 10% off. I would negotiate a little more. The 2008 hasn't been out too long yet, the 2007's can be a steal.
  • This is just a hunch- gm is ending this month's rebates on 11/19. I would guess that there is the possibility of some sort of holiday sale- though I don't know if the 08 hhr will have a smaller or bigger rebate. Ymmv.
  • Does that 10% include the rebate or not. If I could get 10% plus the rebate I would be stoked ! Cars direct price was not much better about 1000 off before rebate.
  • PT2- I don't know about the 10%, or for that matter the rebates. It seems that the stated difference between msrp and invoice is probably $1500 +/-. What's potentialy good for me may not be good for you. Like if you painstakingly use the chevy web sight you can search stock for 2007 or 2008, lt or ls. Since we also want a lt; as well as me being cheap- I have searched through a LOT of dealers inventory. It appears to not be exact in terms of inventory, but you can pull up the window sticker and look for the packages you desire. In my search - it seems like the colors- black, red, and orange seemed to have either been produced in very large amounts, or are lanquishing on the lots (2007's) imho. And I think someone mentioned this earlier in this thread- when the '08's are on the lot- it makes it tougher to sell the 07's without more factory help. Again- lots of people don't think buying a year old model is a good move. Some folks do- depending on the value they feel they are getting. Good luck.

    10% not including rebate.
  • Thanks for clearing that up Poncho. I also wanted to add in my previous post how PAINFUL that inventory search is at the chevy website.
  • OK... I can get a 2007 2.2 LS with A/T and upgraded radio (MSRP $17,790) for $15,990 out the door, after the rebate (dealer stated as $2500... must mean the LT rebate will soon go to $3000 officially). There was a loss leader at $18,512 MSRP that was advertised for $12K this past weekend at a different dealer, before tax & license.

    I'm disappointed that this car doesn't come with ABS, but that's my only big concern. (They are also trying to force a $200 payment for etching ID codes on the windows, included in the above price.)

    Good deal or no? I felt like I should be able to get out the door at closer to $15k, especially considering itthe car's basically devoid of extras. They have two identical 2007 units as the only prior year models on the lot at this dealer. Would appreciate any advice/feedback those with experience would care to give. I basically have the day to think it over.

    Thanks!
  • I hope this isn't too late- my gut (and only my opinion) is it isn't that good of a deal. If you didn't buy today- post up your zip so I can look around a bit later for you.
  • I haven't gone in to buy yet, so any help is appreciated... ZIP is 85225

    Thanks!
  • Hi Jellyfish1- I cannot tell you it was a good deal or not. Why I asked for your zip (fwiw) is I looked around at the chevy site for what your area dealers (supposedly) have in stock. I saw a couple of other ls autos (not necessarily with the radio upgrd). If reasonably in budget- I also saw several 07 lt's from 18.5 to 19.9 sticker. The 18.5 sticker one was a basic lt 2.2 auto located in wickenburg. Assuming there is another 500 rebate coming- it might be an option for you. Considering the rebate may change on the 20th (as your dealer seemed to say to you), it might be worth sitting tight for ten days or so. If I was in no rush I would email several (or more) dealers and see what they offer- including some of the lesser msrp lt's. Please remember though- you might not get a better deal; and the car you are considering might be sold out from under you. So please use your best judgement for your situation. Good luck-hth
    Btw- if anyone out in the southwest knows of real bargains on hhr's out there- please share with JF1- thank you :)
  • I just purchased the LT1 2007 not even two weeks ago for around $15,500 in Maine. That was with the 2500 rebate and marked down again because of a few paint dings on the hood (NO BIG DEAL). So far I LOVE this car the more I drive it the more I love it. I went and tested 4 other 2007 vehicles and this is the only one I really liked. It rides smooth, and so far no problems...but again I've only had it for under 10 days.
  • elvisluvs: thanks... we're still sitting tight. I got the dealer to agree today to drop the $200 they had built in for etching the VIN on the windows - so now it's down to $15,890 out the door... another night to sleep on it... I actually talked to the Wickenburg dealer and they weren't moving much on price... had a White LT at $19,700 before rebate, but that's above my budget...

    Thanks again!
  • No problem Jellyfish1- that's good to hear about the $200. Since it's still early in the west- maybe we will hear from some more folks. Keep us up to date.
  • vschriver: Was the $15,500 before tax and license? Is it an automatic? What was MSRP? Thanks!
  • I plan to purchase a 2007 LT2 within a day or so but I am truly unclear about the price I should pay.I realize it is the end of the year and the 08s are now out so I assume the price should be less.Trying to get in the Red Tag event.Would appreciate all advice given.My zip is 21244. I am trying to internet shop to get the lowest price.
