Got the wifes new HHR
The wifes new HHR arrived last Wednesday.
MSRP was $23,695. Out the door was $18,695 for a fully loaded HHR. We had pricing help from a friend of a friend that's the dealership GM. General Motors is also offering a $1500 rebate for Texas customers.
Cashmere Leather interior
17" Polished wheels
AM/FM single indash CD/MP3 player
Added and unexpected features were:
Glove box IPOD connection
Tire Pressure Monitor system
For some reason GM advertisement literature doesnt mention the tire pressure monitor system, not sure what models have it.
Owners manual is very vague on when to turn off the Stabilitrac and Traction enhancement systems. At a guess I'd say during ice and snow conditions.
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.

Let me know how it drives if you will. My girlfriend is obsessed with the idea of getting a HHR Panel. I'm not too excited about the project, but she insists she is going to get it.

Bravo! on the wifes ride. Sadly, you won't see her around much anymore.
And some pictures would be nice....if she'll park it for a minute

I took her car to work today, she went to the dentist and couldnt drive, or talk enough to say "no, dont drive my car" her bad luck.
Drove pretty nice, maybe I'll have to institute an HHR Thursday for myself every week.
Working on pictures this weekend.

Some pics of the wifes HHR:
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.
