great car for the $
Pros: quiet ride!!
Cons: seats are firm but bought a cushion,nice/quiet ride, alot of goodies on it, getting 31 mpg in town[4 wks old], nice size.
Pros: almost everything
Cons: no power seatsi love this car and when i need the power it's there. It is good on gas so it won,t break the bank.
Pros: the foglights
Cons: the hubcapsI have a cobalt LT sedan and love it!
Pros: The sporty look of the car
Cons: The turning radius of the vehicle, its terrible!The cover plates inside the door handles and around the stereo started flaking off not even 6 months after I got it. The turning radius on this car is horrible and it's not my driving, I have had several friends drive it and they have said the same thing.
Pros: the color
Cons: car beingto smallIt is a ok car. I think it should be alittle bit better on gas because its so small
Pros: Turbocharged motor
Cons: Brake noisePurchased an HHR SS as a grocery getter. The performance of the turbocharged motor is very impressive. Fit and finish is very good and the car feels very soild. I especially like having a small wagon that can handle my hauling needs yet be sporty and offer the performance and economy I want. The ride and handling are great for my needs. I tend to favor a tighter handling chassis and am willing to give up a softer ride. The seats are very supportive and all of the essential controls are layed out well. Gas mileage is good, around 20 in town and 29 on the highway. Only issue has been a noisy brake noise upon moderate to hard braking.
An Okay Automobile
Pros: Gas Mileage
Cons: SuspensionThe car ran well, but of course with a smaller 2.2 liter engine, doesn't have much 'get up and go'. The other thing is that both of the front end control arms had to be replaced. Likely due to driving on the dirt roads. The car has a pretty tight suspension and because of the small frame, likely cannot handle these types of roads.
