Pros

Tons of room for those trips to Home Depot as the back seats can go down. Great fuel economy. Easy to handle.

Cons

You need to be aware of your blind spots.

Great Economical Car For Someone Who Needs The Room Of A Suv. — Great car for short rides or long trips. I could go grocery shopping and with the mesh netting, not have to worry about my stuff sliding all over the place. Roomy, comfortable, and sporty make this a perfect car for commuting or for just plain fun!

body styling, fuel milage, relibility

Cons

complicated to repair, low power

Nice Car — Call it a station wagon, call it a light truck, call it a cross-over SUV, but the HHR is a nice car. The build quality is good, only needing warranty repair once to replace a blown blower motor for the vent/AC. It has great retro styling and gets 30 mpg on the highway. The only downsides are sometimes the 2.2L 4-cylinder engine doesn't have the "get up and go" needed for some driving situations, replacement body parts are hard to come by, and even simple DIY jobs like replacing a bulb are complicated. Never the less, I would recommend it to a friend that needs a vehicle with storage space.

I Really Love This Car And All It's Features. — I love what this car offers me.. it's comfortable, roomy it has nearly as much cargo space as my trailblazer , it handles great,, gets great gas mileage, it's easy to maintain.. and has had minimal issues. I would recommend the HHR to anyone looking for dependability and economy... with comfort and some style. No downside to owning this car.

The Most Reliable Car On His Class — Compact, economic, reliable, good on space, cold a/c, very good on the road, is so comfortable and all controls are on the tips of your hands, stereo sound good for being a factory equipment, the cargo area is big enough to carry all you need from long trips. Overall an excellent car!!!

Pros

Unique looks. Standard factory remote-start.

Cons

Lack of standard ABS and side airbags. MPG's could have been better.

One Of Chevy's Better Models. — Sometimes I miss this car. I liked it's unique looks, but I eventually moved on for something better-equipped. This was a pretty reliable car over-all. The only quality issue I had was a misaligned driver's door from the factory. This just made wind noise a little more apparent. Handling was average for this type of vehicle. Braking was not great. Acceleration was acceptable. MPG's were a little disappointing, about 21 MPG in about 50/50 city/hwy driving.

Pros

Great gas mileage, drives really great on freeway, has get up and go for such a small engine - have to watch your speed it wants to go so fast.

Cons

When you pull your foot off the gas it does not slow down fast enough - made with a lot of plastic parts that break easy.  Lots of blind spots on the windshield.  Taller people would have to lower their heads to see traffic lights change.

Nice Family Car And Ride — I like that it is roomier than expected, it will fit 4 adults comfortably which was surprising. It also has a lot of room in the back. 5 women took it on a long weekend and had it filled to the brim with room left over.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Great Single Child Family Car — Had this car for 3 years, reliable, enough power, great gas mileage, comfort! Looks of this car are great. Storage is great Wish you could shut off the traction control in the winter time when needed, eats breaks and tires.

Pros

Duel deck rear storage, front dash storage, great speakers, excellent get
up and go, responsive steering, and much more

Cons

the only thing I would change is the front cup holders and where the
window controls are. I think by switching them it is better for
functionality.

They Hit The Nail On The Head — What attracted me to this car was the body style. I have always liked the look of curves on a car. I don't like the box look of many cars today. With roof rails and running boards my car is a throw back to the car of years ago.

Pros

Very nice ride, Excellent fuel economy. Decent handling. LOTS of flat cargo area. Fun car to customize.  Small but large inside.

Cons

Its a GM. Fit and finish interior is terrible. Weak plastic parts, Sluggish. Lots of little things to fix here and there. A Project. Battery is located in the Rear where the spare tire is. Could not get the rear hatch open if battery was dead. Headlamp replacement a project.

Great Hobby Car But Would Not Want It As Only Fulltime Vehicle. — I like the old school look, The cargo capacity is amazing and flat. Fuel economy was great, Pioneer stereo system was better than in any car I owned stock. Very comfortable to get in and out. Car did have tooooo much hard plastic interior. Leather was nice and soft. Performance was so so but good enough for flat travel. Very fun car to drive. HOWEVER it was plagued by little issues. Front rotors warped, Front suspension was quirky as well as the electronic steering. Chevy had to replace Steering column on quit a few and ignition keys would lock in the ignition with car running. Recall on that. Some water leakage from moon roof drains and firewall leaks. All that said I would own another 2LT package only as a hobby car. It grew on my like a fungus, Would have kept it but it was hit and the sheet metal is like tissue.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
