2008 Chevrolet HHR SS Review – HHR aka Hot-Hot-Rod

Chevrolet Expert Reviews

Conclusion
If I had $22-$24k to spend, I’d seriously consider the HHR SS. It’s got the looks of a muscular sprinter and the engine to back up the body. If Chevy could redesign the shifting mechanism to make the effort lighter, as well as making the throws shorter and more positive, it would be so much easier to drive/shift while performance driving. I would also recommend that they lower the seat a bit more which might solve the issue of being able to find the right seat position. Most of the time I was driving aggressively cause it was fun, but I did burn lots of gas. Deciding to see how fuel efficient the engine could be at steady-state speeds, I set the cruise control for 65-mph and kept it that way for several miles to normalize. What was the instantaneous mpg reading? Between 34-35 mpg. That’s impressive for a car with 260 horses under the hood. As a point of comparison, my 88 Acura Integra with its 1.6 liter engine (with a whopping 115hp) had the same rating for highway mileage when new! Overall, the HHR SS is hard to pass up in light of current gas prices, its flexible interior, and its ability to smoke many more expensive vehicles.
