2008 4dr Wagon turbocharged 260hp 2.0L I4

I have driven the car 25000 miles in 9 months and have not had a single problem. Only maintenance is oil changes and tire rotation.

I have a 2008 HHR SS, and every time it needs a repair the parts are on INDEFINATE BACKORDER from GM and I have to phone random dealers across North America to find the parts myself. The quality of service from GM service shops are way below the quality of service I get at my normal shop. T Items replaced since I bought it new: 1 - Wiring harness failure 2 - Shifter linkage failure 3 - Shifter cables failure 4 - Stereo failure 5 - Sunroof failure 6 - Suspension bushings And now the bottom of the doors are rusty. Under warranty the first 3 years I had a Malibu loaner car a total of 8 weeks! Today this car has 46k on it and it feels like 200k. This car has proved to be very unreliable and I would never buy another Chevy again.

For such a cheap car, this one has been very reliable. A few things, but nothing that surprised me, or was hard to fix.

I have had problems with GM engines. It is assembled in Mexico and has workmanship issues that relate back to reliability.
