    Has Been Good To Me The Last 4 Years. — Performance:acceleration average, braking good, handling smooth. Build Quality: Squeaks and rattles in cold weather Appearance: Inside leather with heated seats, I like the station setups. Exterior: could have used better paint, chips. Gas mileage is fair but averages the same as a small SUV. The car is fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Eye Catching and overall no major engine issues

    Cons: Limited visually out of small windshield, squeaks

    This Car Has A Lot Of Potential — its a four cylinder motor so it definietly does no go fast. handles and brakes fine was hit in the rear and barely damaged. the apperance is great because we have pimped it out awesome economical vehicle for those on a tight budges. with a few mods you can get upwards of 45mpg on the highway. its definitely can be fun to drive

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: its cute and little

    Cons: don't avoid the car just watch out for the dealership they will screw you

    . — Fun to drive, Looks very nice inside and out. Drives well, decent acceleration for a four cylinder. Gas mileage is good, about 38 to 40 on the highway. The only thing I can complain about is the brakes, at times they seem seem to pull or struggle when stopping under normal conditions.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Mileage, Appearance, Fun to drive

    Cons: Brake problems, Struggles when carrying 4 people + luggage.

    Good Car For The Most Part, Would Probably Trade In For A Later Model That Has The Bugs Worked Out. — the car gets good gas mileage on long trips. It has pretty good acceleration and handles pretty good. My warranty has paid, I had to have the thermostat changed twice and just recently the cam shaft motivator needed to be replaced. All of my repairs seem to occur in the summer. Rest of the year it seems to be fine.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's a cute car

    Cons: First year make of a car sucks.

    We Really Like The Car. Looks, Gas Economy And Ease Of Parking Make Up For The Minor Negatives. — The performance is adequate except for Interstate in the mountains (we take a different car for trips - a Chevy SSR). Braking & handling are good. Ride is very good for a car of this size. It is good for shopping: nice storage space, easy to park. The running board is a necessity for parking lots unless you want a bunch of dents. Only problem we've had was heater / ac fan speed resistor had to be replaced (in warranty). We love the way it looks inside & out

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: looks, size, gas mileage

    Cons: poor visibility due to small windows, barely enough horsepower

    Hhr Review — Handles good. Replaced brakes (routers and all) at only 63000km. Gas mileage is good. Quality is not the best...little things have broken like the Chevy symbol on the back of the car. It is a fun car to drive. Its kinda like a roadster.

    Pros: Great safety ratings but also a cool looking car

    Cons: Small things break easily

    Ugly Goes Straight To The Bone — we had a number of problems with our 2006 2LT HHR: -brakes wore out in less than 20K miles -scratches appeared on rocker panels and rear door because we didn't get the running boards..buy them! -poor visibility overall but especially for taller drivers through the windshield -the car took on water through the firewall, so much water that it filled the wells below the drivers' carpet area. what a mess! The battery cable runs through this area. It was a very distinctive-looking car that I tought would get better gas mileage than the 25 mpg average we got for the 40,000 miles that we owned it.

    Pros: not your father's oldsmobile

    Cons: too many headaches with body

    My Current Ride. — Solid mini-SUV. Not a sports car by any means. Excellent with the kids and their activities. It's not a horrible automobile, despite it's American heritage (built in Mexico). 32 MPG on my daily commute to Barbourville, which isn't bad considering the size and my lead foot. Would I buy it again? Uh, probably not. But I'm not horrified by my experiences.

    Pros: Good space, unique styling, and reliability.

    Cons: Body roll (it's a miniture SUV, so what's odd about that), book/resale value.

    Nice Car — Call it a station wagon, call it a light truck, call it a cross-over SUV, but the HHR is a nice car. The build quality is good, only needing warranty repair once to replace a blown blower motor for the vent/AC. It has great retro styling and gets 30 mpg on the highway. The only downsides are sometimes the 2.2L 4-cylinder engine doesn't have the "get up and go" needed for some driving situations, replacement body parts are hard to come by, and even simple DIY jobs like replacing a bulb are complicated. Never the less, I would recommend it to a friend that needs a vehicle with storage space.

    Pros: body styling, fuel milage, relibility

    Cons: complicated to repair, low power
