2009 Chevy HHR SS SOLD

Up for sale is my 2009 Chevy HHR SS, 5MT with 117k miles on it. It currently needs significant engine work and cannot be driven so I've reduced the price accordingly. I've been pouring money into this car like crazy over the past year and my wife has deemed it unreliable so it has to go.

I'm asking $4000 OBO, I'm definitely willing to deal to get it out of my driveway. The car is located in Greensboro, NC and will need to be trailered or towed away. I have the title in hand free and clear. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

The Good:
  • Factory Performance Package with Brembo front brakes and LSD
  • New brake rotors, pads, and hardware all around plus a fluid flush with Valvoline DOT3 synthetic fluid about a month ago.
  • New high pressure fuel pump and radiator fan/control module.
  • The front suspension was refreshed a year ago with new GM parts including new shocks, struts, strut bearings and mounts, sway bar links and sway bar bushings.
  • Replaced the front mount intercooler and charge piping with ZZP parts.
  • Aeroforce SS edition scan gauge in place of the stock boost gauge on the A-Pillar
  • 3" stainless steel high flow exhaust
  • Powder coated factory wheels.
  • GM Performance Stage kit (3 bar map sensors and ECU tune).
  • The 5-speed shifts smoothly and no issues with the clutch.
  • Pennzoil Ultra Platinum synthetic oil changes every 6-8k since 74k miles when I bought it in 2013.
  • Interior is a solid 9/10. No rips/tears/burns anywhere. Carpets are in good shape. No missing trim and everything works alright.
  • Moonroof.
  • Stripes are plasti-dip and fully removable if you don't like them.
  • I've got an extra clutch return spring kit (only $30, but good luck finding it when you need it).

The Bad:
  • The normal paint chips and minor scratches/dents you might expect on a nine year old car. The paint isn't perfect, but is looks great washed and is a solid 8/10.
  • The drivers side window master switch needs to be replaced. It opens and closes the front windows without an issue and can close the rears, but you can only put the rear windows down from the switches in back. This was replaced by GM around 75k miles when I first got the car. Apparently this is a common problem.

The Ugly:
  • The car had two major mechanical incidents in the last 6-8 weeks. An overheating episode due to a dead radiator fan (replaced with GM part), and a killer high pressure fuel pump failure which appears to have been the death knell for the head gasket (HPFP also replaced).
  • The car likely needs a head gasket. It's misfiring like crazy on cylinder four, puffing white smoke at idle and generating clouds under throttle.
  • The cost estimates I've gotten from local shops have been in the $1500-2500 dollar range. If you're the DIY type with this sort of thing, it will cost around $1000 if your so inclined ($600 for complete head w/ cams and valves, $100 on gaskets, $150 on timing kit, $100 on coolant oil and misc. supplies).

On to the photos.
