    Trying to recover the coil spring in-process pics from my camera, my 3yr old granddaughter gave the digital camera a bath because I had greasy fingerprints on it.

    Ordered the new threshhold plates, interior accent kit (African Zebra Wood with Brazillian Oak) and a new third lamp Saturday. I'll get before and after pics of the interior when I do this project, hopefully next weekend.

    Anyone know for sure?

    The owners manual has no information on checking the Auto Trans fluid. They do state not to change fluid and filter until 100K miles.
    Is this a non-service item?

    So far I've added an Eibach 2" lowering kit (when time permits I'll download pics taken while changing the coils, an easy job that takes 4 hours).

    Ordered Stainless Steel threshhold plates for the front doors and a black plastic threshhold plate for the rear hatch.

    Were researching wheels, interior trim kit, and drop in airfilters. So far I've only found K&N, I'd like to find a Dry Flow version if it's available.

    And as soon as I can pry her fingers off the steering wheel I'll get pictures of the car, in less than a week she's managed to put 400 miles on it. She says she's testing the fuel mileage numbers.
    First, Congrats on a good selection, I have a 06 1LT with the 2.4 auto.

    I have driven close to 20 rentals as I travel a lot for work and have driven all 3 years, the 06 - 07 - 08, I drove a 08 in july before the dealers had them.

    1. The tire pressure is a new for 08 feature that will be standard for most of the GM's.

    2. the stabilitrac or traction control would be your preference, I on my HHR do not have that feature, As far as I remember the 08 is the first year we could turn off the feature.

    3. The transmission yes is a non serviceable feature and does not have a way to check the fluid level, I have heard rumor the dealer might know how to check them but the transmission is sealed.

    4. Fuel mileage will vary to conditions, on my HHR I average 28 driving to work (60 miles both ways) combined using regular 87 and will get 32.5 driving on trips averaging 70 mph (depending on state) and using premium 91. to 30.5 with 87 octane.

    Forgive me Steve, but I am also a member of a Chevyhhrfamily forum started close to Dallas Texas is where the founder lives. where we discuss lots of mods, runs and get togethers and a Member of a HHR club based out of Illinois.

    CGS is a popular intake manifold for the HHR.

    Thumbs up Nice ride!

    Nice ride your wife's lucky! And top of all you had a good deal! But i am pretty sure you would not trade your suburban for a small truck like this one... And by the way you got a very nice HD!!

    Welcome to the HHR Family.
    Talked to a GM mechanic and he gave me the same answer on the transmission, they use power flushing to service them. If there is a suspected leak they power flush the system to find and repair the leak. With power flushing the system is supposedly serviced to the correct level when they disconnect the machine.
    Mileage is consistant with yours, so far I've been using 87 octane and havent had an issue, if I do get some knock I'll start using mid grade.
    I went met the a couple of members from the chevyhhrfamily page a few weeks ago in Denton TX. They turned me onto the page and I've been browsing through it since then.
    Still havent got to drive the HHR over 50 miles myself, but I did buy it for the wife.
    I finished the interior accents Sunday afternoon, guess I'm gonna hafta buy a new camera soon and take pictures.

    Thanks.
    Dont bet on not trading the Suburban. With gas prices like they are and the the Suburban only driving about 500 miles a year it may find a new owner soon.. I have a 01 Chevy Diesel Dually that can handle the towing chores and with just the wife and I we really dont need all the room the Suburban has.
    Thanks on the HD, unfortunately its on auction block, I'm looking at an FXDB and wife say's I cant have two bikes.
