I Like It, It Wont Do What My Suburban Will,nor Would I Expect It To. Get One And See. — First of all I love the"retro" look of the HHR, I had a 53 Chevy panel truck in High School, and it reminds me of it. The model I have is the LT2, we had leather seats added and the factory spoiler, we also have the 2.4 ltr. upgrade which has a very noticeable performance difference over the 2.2 ltr. We are still getting use to the size as we also have a Suburban and a Tahoe. So far the vehicle is great to drive and no quirks around town or on the highway. I would highly reccomend this vehicle to anyone, with many packages and styles available. Another winner from Chevrolet

A Great Family Car For The Price. — A great family car for the price. Excellent mileage and plenty of cargo room. So far, no mechanical issues. It's got some pep, but it's nothing sporty.

Overall, We Love The Car! — Love the car!! We brought it home from Langhorne, PA, to Wilkes Barre PA, and only used a quarter tank of gas! The steering is electronic, and handles like a dream! And there is plenty of leg room in the back seat for passengers so they don't feel cramped.

Thumbs Up! — Great Gas Mileage, with sporty retro appearance that's fun to toss around. So far no problems. The 2.2L ecotec is simple and easy to service and the ride is great with adequate performance. On-Star is excellent as well as the XM radio kicks but.

Great Car For The Money. Good Transportation. — I am very pleased with my new HHR. Espeially the gas mileage. I was pleasantly surprised at the acceleration from the little 2.2. Plenty of zip, fun to drive.

Pros

This car has the looks, the power and the gas mileage. I can pack the back full of equipment and still know down 30 plus mpg.

Cons

One of my only complaints about this car is the arm rest on the door panels could be a Lot softer and it is hard to see a stop light change if you get really close. Also a awd version would have be wonderful, trying to get all the power to the ground in a fwd car is a challenge to say the least.

One Of The Best Cars I've Ever Owned! — The cornering, the style, the gas mileage, the power and looks from everyone are second to non. The panel adds so much more to the looks of this car for me, combined with a 5% tinted back window and dark side windows it adds mysterious look. It corners extremely well, the gas mileage had been as high as 41mpg on a FLAT long stretch of road, 32-34 are the norm. With a tune and over 300hp this car is a blast to drive and not feel guilty about it. I love this car and would recommend it to anyone.

Great Everyday Car Or Out Of Town Vechicle. — The car gets great fuel mileage, handles very well, have alot of room in the front and rear, have nice cargo area, have lots of air bags for safety. I dont like that the brakes seem to wear very fast.
