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!

Pros

I like everything about this car.  With the front wheel drive it handles the road excellent in rain and snow.  Any problems that occur are easy to fix and inexpensive.  It is spacious and roomy inside with leg room both in the front seat and the back seat.  The cargo area is large and when the rear seats are down the cargo area becomes huge.    I can't fault this car at all!

Cons

I have yet to find anything negative about this car after driving it for 3 years.

It Is A Great Compact Car With Tons Of Room, Reliable, Great Gas Milage — I like this car so much I have now bought my second one and will probably buy a 3rd one. Its comfortable, roomy, economical to drive, good manuverability, tires last forever, battery is in the "trunk" area and lends to a longevity to the battery with it away from the engine heat. Tires last forever and with the front wheel drive its hard to get this little car stuck. Tinted windows keep the car cooler, but still give you tons of visability. Repairs are minimal and cost is reasonable. Car is quick to get onto the freeway and settles into cruise control at a highway speed with no problems. The ride is much better than many of the other smaller compact cars. Everyone I know that has a PT Cruiser all say they wish they had bought a HHR instead!

Hhr — good car if your not a tall preson, the driver seating is tight for a person 6ft or taller, the driver information center is realy nice and can be customized for your personal tast. I like the feature that you can turn off the horn when locking the car.

Great Mpg — Great to drive in city and on highway. Seats are comfortable and easy to adjust, great acceleration for 4 cyl engine. Does well on hazardous road conditions. Good braking capability and drives smoothly. No issues whatsoever with maintenance or repairs.

Great Car For The Money — Fun car but a little under powered. If you had the money i bet the SS model would be a whole different experiance.Gas milalage is very good.One of the back seat latches broke but thats the only problem so far.

My Ride — A great sized vehicle, holds 4 adults comfortably. Gets great gas mileage, and has good pickup when accelerating. Great big space in the back for carrying things, passenger seat folds down flat for an extra long item. 100,000 mile warrenty.

My Hhr — Great gas mileage, lots of room for my gear and tools, but GUTLESS! That's what you get for a commuter car. It is kind of eyecatching, so I think more people see the window lettering. The kids like it too.
