my best ever vehicle
Pros: comfortable seating for all 5I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT MY HHR! never felt this way abt any car before!!! SERIOUSLY***
excellent interior space seats 5 very comfortably
Pros: body style
Cons: key FOB alarm/locking clicker needed replacing every yearloved it when I 1st saw it, loved it even after some minor mechanical issues occurred. still lovin it 4yrs later, but I want a newer one,
Excellent gas mileage
Pros: Gas mileage
Cons: Must use remote to unlock doors or alarm goes off with key only.I get 26 mpg in combined city/ freeway driving. 30-32 mpg on trips. Have 2.4L, auto. Comfortable. Very quiet. Handles excellent. Only problem was the gear shifter had to be replaced at 48,000 miles. Uses no oil between changes. I would definitely buy HHR again
Worst car ever
Pros: lots of cargo space with back seats laid down
Cons: chronic problems and extremely poor customer service from ChevyChronic brake problems and problems with traction control light coming on followed by check engine light. The moment the traction control light is coming on, gears start shifting rough. Poorest customer service at the Chevy Dealership and incredibly incompetent mechanics at the associated Goodwrench service department. I'll never by a Chevy or any GM products again. Save yourself lots of headaches and follow this advice.
worst front brakes
Cons: brakesI replaced the front brakes 7 times. I don't know if the rotors are poor quality or bad gm design.
Outstanding gas mileage
Cons: Can't use key to unlock door because alarm goes offComfortable, smooth riding. 26 mpg combined city/hwy and 30 mpg on trips No troubles except floor shifter had problem
Pros: The style of the car. I love the look.
Cons: Don't have one.
Advice: Sits 5 not for a big family.I purchased my HHR Mar 2006, I have not had any major problems with it, the MPG is from 30 to 34 for myself. I do all the reg maintenance, oil changes ect! I love my HHR. BUY ONE
