Default PT Going Away

Chrysler says they won't make PT's any longer. I wonder how long Chevrolet will make the HHR?

I see nothing wrong with dropping or ending Saturn. Sell it to the damn dealers. Saab makes flying machines. Hummer is nothing more than a box on a 2500 platform. So, since the little H goes away also why not let the Colorado go? The small H in on the Colorado platform. In my opinion they screwed that up, the Colorado, when they put a 5 cylinder in it. Chevrolet already made a 4.8 V8. Gets the same or better MPG. More hp, torque, the same MPG why cast a new 4 and 5 cylinder?

I pretty sure that the 5 cylinder is a version of the I6 that the Trailblazers debuted.

Either way, not a great idea that people relate to marketing wise.

Right...tell me that when Saturn and Hummer represent millions and millions
of dollars worth of your business, which is how Saturn and Hummer going away would affect me.

I rented an HHR. At first you like it, and then that wore off. Its rear view sucks, it has a noisy cabin and its ride quality well its no 09 Focus thats for sure in that area. My mom has an 09 Ford Focus and I gotta say its solid. My sister-in-law has a 07 Pontiac G5, and its cabin is sick, but the Focus beats it in all areas even cabin.

They already announced the PT Cruiser would end production a long time ago.

A rental car is generally a piece of junk. Low end no options basic transportation.

Here is why I think the HHR will go away.

My 2008 26K miles LS $11,986.00 no interest. I've got over 13K in it..

Well let's not forget, they do have that awesome little 5.3L V8 option in them now as well.
That's got to be a potent little truck.

That's what I'd thought as well.
