Great little car
Pros: Fold flat rear seats.
Cons: Cup holder position.Purchased in Jan 2010. Have driven thru 2 NW Indiana winters. Love the remote start. Always does great in the snow (just remember it's not 4WD). I drive 80 miles round trip for work, mileage was 29-31, now getting 30-32mpg. 31mpg on a trip to Florida & back. Cup holders could have a better position. Visability is alittle different from other cars, windshield pillars seem wider (drive one first, don't complain later). Oh yes..E85 mileage is horrible, runs ok on it but you will never save any $$$. Wind noise is par with others its size.
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,
Most trouble free ever
Cons: Shoulder room (I'm a big guy)Fit & Finish excellent,very practical, reasonably good on gas. A/C will freeze you out (I'm in FL). Compfortable ride. good headroom but a little tight in shoulder room. In 30M miles only problem was a burned out tail light bulb. I hate to see them stop making it. Best vehicle for the money.
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.
Cons: visibilityfun to drive,geat cargo capacity,good on long trips, excellent mileage
