Fun Car To Have! — Combines fun and practicality. It has storage space, power, and good highway fuel economy. The SS models look fierce, or as my uncle who sold me the car would say, "ornery" haha. I bought mine with 33k miles 1.5 years ago. The only thing that has needed fixing is a bracket in the sunroof (kinda expensive). Other than that, the car has been very reliable.

Very Dependable, Good Performing Car. — This HHR SS has been great for me and the family. Good performance, good fuel economy, and very versatile for carrying large items, luggage, and groceries. I did not like the ESC system. On windy days, it tries to over-control the car; I simply turned it off when driving during high winds. Overall, great experience with this car.

Great! — This has been our family car and it is great on gas and even has a trip monitor so that we can really extend our fuel mileage. The sound system is great, everything has worked fantastically! I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a simple, fun, car with good storage and great mileage!

Pros

More roomy than you would expect.  It is actually quite comfortable.  Love the looks of this vehicle, a reminder of days ago.

Cons

If you are taller there is some issue with a blind spot, especially when you come to a stop light you have to look up and under...

Good On Gas, And Looks Great. — I really like the car. It has far more room than it looks. Almost as much room as an SUV, without the v-8 engine and poor gas mileage. Love the look of this car, as I has a vintage style.

Pros

Love to drive this car! Easy to handle. Drives straight and smooth. Hugs the road making those sharp turns do-able and fun.

Cons

This is a manual transmission. We're getting older and it's hard on our knees to shift.

Best Car We Ever Owned! — When I drove this car I felt GOOD. It was fun and easy to handle. Love the look. The color was another thing I liked about this car, it is mainly blue but from different angles it looks purple and glitters. It has comfy cloth seats that are easy to clean. It also has the power to get the job done, whether it's merging onto a highway or climbing the hills in the Ozarks. Very dependable car!

Economy In A Cool Package. — Came down to the HHR from a Hemi powered Dodge Magnum. I miss the Magnum a lot but not when I get to drive by the fuel pump. The HHR has all the utility, most of the looks and double the gas mileage.

My Car — I needed a car and it was cheap. What more is there to say? And it comes standard with a remote starter which helps when it's 115 in June.

Pros

It's comfortable, roomy and it has a ton of cargo space!

Cons

It's a bit under powered...

It's A Definite Buy For Musicians Out There That Need Extra Space In Their Car! — This car is pretty much perfect for someone like me. It gets decent gas mileage for a mini-suv (it would be a bit better if it had a more powerful engine, as it is underpowered and thus has less fuel efficiency). It also has a ton of space when the back seats are folded down, which is great for traveling to brass quintet gigs with 5 stands, a chair, a tuba, a (french) horn (horn players don't like it when you call it a french horn because it was designed in Germany) and two HUGE folders of music...oh yeah, and a large cooler full of water, lunchables and beer.

Pros

value for money, excellent fuel economy, good ride quality, great turning radius, many std options, good stock stereo system, lots of room, reliable

Cons

difficult to change front light bulbs or air filter and if no running boards dirt roads will result in chips on lower 6" portion of front rear wheel wells.

Best Used Car Value For Vehicle Class — for two years had just our 350z and jaguar s to drive and use but interior room, fuel economy always just become to much of problem as well as needing a vehicle to go fishing with that i am not afraid of taking on mountain dirt roads. checked many vehicles found this one to have rated good quality, good mpg and best of all a low price for a good used one with very low miles. ours an 08' had 40k when purchased and paid less than 9k. the ride is very good, seats for 6'2" me, is great. it turns sharper, smaller radius than even my Z which was surprising. room is awesome, you can not only fold down the rear seats but also the front passenger. there is also a very large rear floor compartment too. i can't speak to the stock brakes as i always replace brakes of any vehicle i get w/ceramics but that said ours work just fine. on roads going 55 mph we get 40 mpg and in the city on avg 32 mpg. i was very surprised with the get up and go from the little 4 banger. from the top of the off ramp to the bottom it can easily merge with traffic, capable of 0-80 mph in that short distance. it is front wheel drive and does well on snow and ice. standard options even on the LS are many, pwr windows, tilt, cruise, pwr seats, pwr mirrors, air, etc. build quality isn't up to nissan stds let alone jaguar but still good especially when one considers the price paid. we have had absolutely no issues in the past year and half of owning it and highly recommend it to anyone who wants, needs a good all around vehicle that is priced below that of much of the competition.
