    Didnt get another speeding ticket did ya?

    I wish the LS/LT models could get the window switches on the doors like the SS.

    Looks cool, too bad it's FWD. I bet torque steer has gotta be an issue.

    That was what I thought I'd encounter when I first drove my wifes HHR. Suprisingly there's little torque steer, traction control keeps the car going in the direction you steer it. The 08's are the first year to have an on/off button for Traction control, when it's off you get a moderate amount of torque steer.

    The 2009 models have the buttons for the windows back on the door now.

    Too late, I'm already trained to reach forthe center dash panel for the window.
    I'd have to retrain myself and that isnt so easy now a days.

    Wow I have seen one of these on the road before, but I didn't know the interior looked like that. It looks like Corbeau seats wrapped in Katzkin leather, I would like to have that in my truck to lighten it up a little. What does one of these babies run fully loaded I wonder, I would guess high 30's but maybe not.

    When I looked at them in mid 2008 the list was around $25K depending on options added.
    I was tempted to sell the wife's 08 LS and buy her a new SS but since hers it wasnt a year old yet I didnt want to take a beating on selling it, so I bought my new Harley instead.

    Our family has outgrown the HHR, but its sure to be a favorite for years to come.

    This thing is a blast to drive. My 5 speed has a limited slip transaxle and a GM Turbo Upgrade Kit that brings the horses/torque to 290HP / 315Ft. Lb.
