2008 Chevrolet HHR SS 2.0 turbo from North America

Summary:

Would buy another in a heart beat!

Faults:

Nothing, no problems at all.

General Comments:

The looks, power, brakes, handling, and economy are unparalleled. The looks are exceptional, and it will not be confused with anything else.

The power, with almost zero turbo lag, is just super with 260 ft/lbs of torque, and 260 hp. One of the faster vehicles I've owned.

The brakes are the best of any car I've ever owned, and I've owned 9 new cars. It'll stop on a dime with no fade or pulling.

The handling is very good with its race tuned suspension. It is a real thrill to drive.

The economy is very good, with 30 - 32 mpg on the open road and about 24 mpg around town.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 2008 HHR LT. It's great to drive, great gas mileage and plenty of room, but it really doesn't handle very well in the wind. Any suggestions that might help this?

There is no way to fix that. The HHR has a pretty large surface area for a fairly light vehicle. This makes it very susceptible to crosswinds. You can reduce this by driving slower, but it will never go away.
