Pros

Cool, Retro, Economical, Clean Body Style, Great Options, Great Warranty, and Very Cool

Cons

Some Parts and Accessories are a bit Pricy

Hhr Panel — I was searching for a Panel because it is just me and my dog Bruce and we don't need 4 seats, and I would like somthing that can carry a little cargo and be able to lock it up or keep it out of the weather if needed unlike a truck. I was contemplating either a Scion Xb or a PT Cruiser but neither had a panel. Then I saw an HHR Panel on the freeway...cool! I was not that impressed with the window model but the panel just looks clean (and retro)...very cool. Oh did I mention 30mpg! (added bonus)

Pros

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.

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.
