We have been towing a HHR for two years, you need to check the manual for you car. Ours is manual trans and we have to pull a fuse, a royal pain in the rear. I bought a switch for it to replace the fuse and that shorted out. I will probably go to a battery disconnect switch.
Anyone have experiences towing an HHR? I have heard it can be done 4 down by removing a fuse or chip or something?
Would like to know more.

Another excellant choice for towing 4 down is the Chevy Malibu. It weighs a little more than the HHR but has more interior room and gets just as good or better gas mileage (up to 33mpg). It has the same 65mph restriction and I think you'll need to pull a fuse with it also. Neither one register miles while towing.
My other car is a '98 Olds Cutlass (a Malibu with an Oldsmobile emblem). Both the HHR and Cutlass are equiped to tow and we switch off now and then. The Cutlass now has over 122,xxx miles on it and still drives great. I forget their back there while going down the highway - good thing I've got the camera to remind me!

PS: The only issue with the HHR is that the tow bar attaches to the front end very low on the vehicle. Even with a 6" drop down receiver, the tow bar is still sloped up towards the motorhome. Although within the 4" allowed, it still has caused excessive, premature wear on my Blue Ox tow bar. I have towed my HHR for only 20,000 miles and am presently rebuilding my tow bar for the second time. I will be adding hitch immobilizers to both receivers which I hope will solve the problem.

What are Hitch Immobilizers?
