Pros

Good mileage

Cons

Stick Shift Sucks in Traffic

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.

Pros

Lot's of room

Cons

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.

good fuel economy, low maintenance

Cons

performance goes with everything else when you downsize.  get used to it

2008 Chevrolet Hhr 1lt — It has half the motor as my previous vehicle, thus, half the performance, but twice the fuel economy. Can't beat it at the pump, a tank of gas lasts twice as long. Touring suspension holds its own, even with crappy firestone tires dealer left a shipload of scratches and dings.

Pros

Best buy for your dollar, comfort, eco efficient, looks retro cool

Cons

None yet just don't want it to get old.  Maybe a small console would be nice but it doesn't really matter.

Well Built — I love the way the car handles and how it is good on gas. It has a low looking profile however your sit high. The HHR is a good choice for the dollar. When I am driving my car I am having a great time. I would recomend the HHR to all of my friends.

Looks hot, nice interior, great performance

Cons

Build quality could be just slightly better, automatic needs to be a six speed instead of four

2008 Chevrolet Hhr Ss — I really enjoy my HHR Super Sport. It's a bargain of a car and has great performance while still getting good gas mileage. I'm really impressed with the great utility and nice interior. The exterior of this car makes the mouth water. So much classic Chevy yet modern lines make this car a head-turner. The HHR SS is an affordable, stylish, and fun to drive vehicle. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sports car, but still needs utility.

Pros

gas mileage is good, the cubic space is surprisingly large to the size of the vehicle.  steering and control of the vehicle is great.

Cons

visibility in the panel trim vehicle and acceleration.

A Fun Crossover — great crossover with a lot of room, the panel feature is cool but visibility isn't that great. acceleration leaves much to the imagination.
