Good Car — Nothing too positive or too negative. Throw back design. Family Friendly. Averages 28 mpg. easy to maintain. Reliable. Peppy. Don't have to worry too much about being carjacked. With the back seats folded down plenty of cargo space. Comfortable for four adults.

Love This Little Car. — This car is amazing for people who need cargo space and great gas mileage. The back seats go down and create so much room for everything. It's also really comfortable for being a smaller vehicle. I've put 30k miles + on it and it still runs wonderfully. Definitely a perfect fit for a family car or a small business.

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.

Pros

28-29 miles per gallon in town! 30-31 on the highway! Need I say more. Ah, but I will. Remote start, heated leather seats, sunroof, CB player with premium Pioneer sound, auxilary hook up for MP3s and smart phones, front wheel drive.CUTE!

Cons

I live in the country and on a small hill decided to get my own four wheel drive instead of using my husbands.

Great Little Car With Lots Of Bells And Whistles For The Money. — I felt spoiled and pampered in this car. Unfortunately I think this little car would be happier in town or in the city. I love the looks of the car, how easy it is to get in and out of. Not at all cumbersome like some lower sitting cars but more like sliding in and out of a small truck or a van. The lumbar support in a heated seat is like going to a spa. Some days I did not want to get out of the car when I got home.

Family Car — Would have liked more if I would have gotten it fully loaded. Rides a little rough but the sound system is great maybe the radio could tune in a little better. Seat always need to be power and the battery life of the clicker should last longer and it should come with 2.

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.
