You may be right ( first time for everything ). We took it on a 280 mile drive through the Adirondack Mountains yesterday and it handled great. The roads were great. However when it's on a road with the slightest bumps , it feels like you're going over 2' pot holes. Chevy tells me thats the way they all are. Just trying to get some feed back from other HHR owners. It is on the Cobalt chassis I'm told so maybe the Malibu is similar. When and if you leave that oven they call Tx. and get up here we'll compare.

I have a 08 HHR panel that I bought new and pull it behind our MH with no problem. As far as ride goes its not that bad for the price you pay for it. I have had it for 4 years and have put 80,000 miles on it with no major problems. I average about 30 mpg with the automatic transmission.

Find yourself a low mileage Subaru Forester with a 5-speed manual. Tows great, and just hook up and go w/keyswitch in acc. position. 30 mpg hiway, around 25 in town. My '05 going strong at 95,000 mi.

I tow a 2011 HHR. The suspension is tight and firm, I like it. In my younger days I was into British sports cars MG, Austin Healey Sprite, TR3 and others. The HHR reminds me of them except the steering is not as quick, wish it was.

If you want quick steering then get a Mini Cooper. My Wife has one and it is so very fun to drive.
