Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Unfortunately they don't sell them in the US any more, otherwise I'd get a new one. The mileage isn't awesome but it's the best car I've ever owned. I specially like that the turn radius is better than most sedans. With the large cabin the a/c is sometimes challenged but the fan motor can keep up.
On level roads it is very nice. In mountians it could use more power. Qverall a very good automobile
LOVE my HHR. Reliable, economical to run, comfortable, love my heated seats, love my bluetooth connect, just love everything about it.
Could not ask for a more enjoyable car to drive
Wanting the cost of car with options.
