Fun Car To Have! — Combines fun and practicality. It has storage space, power, and good highway fuel economy. The SS models look fierce, or as my uncle who sold me the car would say, "ornery" haha. I bought mine with 33k miles 1.5 years ago. The only thing that has needed fixing is a bracket in the sunroof (kinda expensive). Other than that, the car has been very reliable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Styling, power, highway fuel economy

Cons: Poor traction in snow for FWD car.

Very Dependable, Good Performing Car. — This HHR SS has been great for me and the family. Good performance, good fuel economy, and very versatile for carrying large items, luggage, and groceries. I did not like the ESC system. On windy days, it tries to over-control the car; I simply turned it off when driving during high winds. Overall, great experience with this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Car

Cons: None

Good On Gas, And Looks Great. — I really like the car. It has far more room than it looks. Almost as much room as an SUV, without the v-8 engine and poor gas mileage. Love the look of this car, as I has a vintage style.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: More roomy than you would expect.  It is actually quite comfortable.  Love the looks of this vehicle, a reminder of days ago.

Cons: If you are taller there is some issue with a blind spot, especially when you come to a stop light you have to look up and under...

Best Car We Ever Owned! — When I drove this car I felt GOOD. It was fun and easy to handle. Love the look. The color was another thing I liked about this car, it is mainly blue but from different angles it looks purple and glitters. It has comfy cloth seats that are easy to clean. It also has the power to get the job done, whether it's merging onto a highway or climbing the hills in the Ozarks. Very dependable car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love to drive this car! Easy to handle. Drives straight and smooth. Hugs the road making those sharp turns do-able and fun.

Cons: This is a manual transmission. We're getting older and it's hard on our knees to shift.

Best Used Car Value For Vehicle Class —

for two years had just our 350z and jaguar s to drive and use but interior room, fuel economy always just become to much of problem as well as needing a vehicle to go fishing with that i am not afraid of taking on mountain dirt roads. checked many vehicles found this one to have rated good quality, good mpg and best of all a low price for a good used one with very low miles. ours an 08' had 40k when purchased and paid less than 9k. the ride is very good, seats for 6'2" me, is great. it turns sharper, smaller radius than even my Z which was surprising. room is awesome, you can not only fold down the rear seats but also the front passenger. there is also a very large rear floor compartment too. i can't speak to the stock brakes as i always replace brakes of any vehicle i get w/ceramics but that said ours work just fine. on roads going 55 mph we get 40 mpg and in the city on avg 32 mpg. i was very surprised with the get up and go from the little 4 banger. from the top of the off ramp to the bottom it can easily merge with traffic, capable of 0-80 mph in that short distance. it is front wheel drive and does well on snow and ice. standard options even on the LS are many, pwr windows, tilt, cruise, pwr seats, pwr mirrors, air, etc. build quality isn't up to nissan stds let alone jaguar but still good especially when one considers the price paid. we have had absolutely no issues in the past year and half of owning it and highly recommend it to anyone who wants, needs a good all around vehicle that is priced below that of much of the competition.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: value for money, excellent fuel economy, good ride quality, great turning radius, many std options, good stock stereo system, lots of room, reliable

Cons: difficult to change front light bulbs or air filter and if no running boards dirt roads will result in chips on lower 6" portion of front rear wheel wells.

It Is A Great Compact Car With Tons Of Room, Reliable, Great Gas Milage — I like this car so much I have now bought my second one and will probably buy a 3rd one. Its comfortable, roomy, economical to drive, good manuverability, tires last forever, battery is in the "trunk" area and lends to a longevity to the battery with it away from the engine heat. Tires last forever and with the front wheel drive its hard to get this little car stuck. Tinted windows keep the car cooler, but still give you tons of visability. Repairs are minimal and cost is reasonable. Car is quick to get onto the freeway and settles into cruise control at a highway speed with no problems. The ride is much better than many of the other smaller compact cars. Everyone I know that has a PT Cruiser all say they wish they had bought a HHR instead!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I like everything about this car.  With the front wheel drive it handles the road excellent in rain and snow.  Any problems that occur are easy to fix and inexpensive.  It is spacious and roomy inside with leg room both in the front seat and the back seat.  The cargo area is large and when the rear seats are down the cargo area becomes huge.    I can't fault this car at all!

Cons: I have yet to find anything negative about this car after driving it for 3 years.
