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.

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.

GUTLESS

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.

Hhr — Great front and rear headroom and legroom. Averages 28MPG with mostly stop- and-go commute driving. Handy extra glove box front and center on the dashboard. Included input jack for MP3 players. Lots of room behind the rear seat for storage and hauling. Interesting retro look, if you are into that.
