Glade to hear that Im not crazy. Now I can start looking
Is 2011 the last year for the HHR?
Yes, 2011 is the last year and you may have a problem trying to find a new one. They had Killer deals on the last few available.
$3500 on LS Model
$4000 on LT models
The 2010 and 2011 have electronic traction control as standard equipt and possibly some earlier models as well. I would check out what year it became standard equipt. or at least see if it is on the HHR you are looking at.
It was an option earlier.
As far as dedicated snow tires go I would buy the Michelin X-Ice tire.
Go to the Michelin web site and check out the info.
I have them and think they are the best choice for snow.
Law hear requires all 4 wheels .. Period.
Bridgestone Blizzak is another good one but they do not wear as well.
