2006 Chevrolet HHR 4dr Wagon
172-horsepower 2.4L I4 5-speed manual FWD
the chrome started to peel off of the factory wheel, then the wheel started to leak air thru the porosity of the wheel. the dealer wanted $750 for a replacement wheel..OUCH
i bought 4 nice aftermarket wheels off of EBay for $450
Windshield cracked. Dealer said it was due to an impact. I have read that the windshields on these
autos have experienced an unusual tendency to crack whit out any apparent cause. Dealer was not forthcoming with me regarding this information
Back emblem had delaminated. Replacement had supposedly been ordered from previous visit, but such was not the case. They took one off of new vehicle to replace mine.
The plastic sunroof support broke and I couldn't close the roof panel. I took it to the dealer and was told it would be at least $1200 to repair. I found a way to close it and will not have it repaired because of the cost.
Sunroof glass rattling.
squeaky drivers seat and oil change
Inside door handle broke. I put in a new one. pretty easy.
Hood needed to be re-aligned and paint touched up as well.
My car developed a leak, everytime it rained the passenger side floor was soaked, the heater motor is rusted out and needs replacing. Warranty doesn't cover water leaks, got it fixed privately. Gm Canada and Gmpp don't care about customers.
Water was leaking on passenger floor during hard rain.It was a bad seal on the butyl patch which is under the hood and below the windshield area. I found the TSB after a long search online. I had to give it to the dealer myself.I had to pay.
front inner driver's door handle replaced. being made of plastic, it had worn out and literally broke off.
