Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold. I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors.

Hey everybody, it's good to have you on the Baba-too-da-ba-too-ba-ba-buh-doo-ga-ga-bop-a-dop

1800. given the current market, pretty cheap since it actually runs and drives just has a rusted fuel line (common issue), needs tires/brakes.

It is tough, depending on what youre looking for.

Also, focus still running strong. had to get a thicccc gasket for the header/cat pipe since it kept leaking. passed inspection with flying colors, friend is borrowing it since his pilot snapped a tbelt oops

I mean, you got a 4th gen that is slowly going to bleed you dry, then you pick up this absolutely horrendous excuse for a vehicle.

Yeah. I liked it but wasn't super crazy about it. We needed deck money so that was first on chopping block unfortunately.

I remember looking for an HHR SS back around 2009-10 time frame when there were all those incentives from the gov't to keep the car companies alive. I never could find an automatic that was close enough and ended up using the money for a new furnace/AC for the house. I thought an HHR SS panel truck would have been pretty cool but they were really hard to find.

I was stupid and bought a 09 G5 new. I wish I got an HHR or cobalt SS instead back then lol probably would still have said car now.

The automatic is pretty lame compared to the 5 speed cobalt I had. the gears are so long, maybe itll get better with the tune but just not a fan at the moment.

just an update, fixed it all up. Neighbor down the road from me bought it. He has a TBSS and an STS-V. He was looking for a niche performance GM product for his daughter's first car.... perfect

I am looking for a 2ZZ powered toyota product... (Matrix XRS, Corolla XRS, Pontiac Vibe GT) as my next flip
