    Well Built — I love the way the car handles and how it is good on gas. It has a low looking profile however your sit high. The HHR is a good choice for the dollar. When I am driving my car I am having a great time. I would recomend the HHR to all of my friends.

    Pros: Best buy for your dollar, comfort, eco efficient, looks retro cool

    Cons: None yet just don't want it to get old.  Maybe a small console would be nice but it doesn't really matter.

    2008 Chevrolet HHR Panel LS Review

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

    Cons: Some Parts and Accessories are a bit Pricy

    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: Looks hot, nice interior, great performance

    Cons: Build quality could be just slightly better, automatic needs to be a six speed instead of four

    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.

    Fun, Utilitarian, Comfy, Economical — What a fun, great looking ride! 30+MPG, leather heated seats, moonroof, traction control, stabillitrack, ABS, AC, 260 watt Pioneer stereo with sub, iPod integration, PW, PDL, Remote Start, Cruise. The steering wheel is amongst the best I've ever personally owned, leather wrapped with controls for Cruise and stereo on the wheel. Handling is excellent, car is easy to drive with magnetic variable assist steering. Breaking is good with 4-wheel ABS, 2.4L engine returns over 30MPG on the freeway and a minimum of 22MPG in town. The stereo in the LT2 package is amongst the best I've ever heard in a factory configuration.

    Pros: Fun to drive, plenty of pep, handles well, all the gadgets one could want.

    Cons: Not the biggest interior but still very roomy for how small it is.  Maybe
    wish there was an AWD version but I don't really need it.

    Great, Retro-style Car — This car is amazing, it gets great gas mileage, very reliable. It has a very smooth ride, and plenty of room for cargo.

    Pros: Great fuel mileage, lots of room, smooth ride,

    Cons: Weak engine choice for large vehicle, sub-par steering and breaking,

    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.

    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.

    Economy In A Cool Package. — Came down to the HHR from a Hemi powered Dodge Magnum. I miss the Magnum a lot but not when I get to drive by the fuel pump. The HHR has all the utility, most of the looks and double the gas mileage.

    Pros: Gas Mileage - Looks - Draws Attention

    Cons: Performance

    Great! — This has been our family car and it is great on gas and even has a trip monitor so that we can really extend our fuel mileage. The sound system is great, everything has worked fantastically! I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a simple, fun, car with good storage and great mileage!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun to Drive, Great Gas Mileage, Sun Roof, OnStar, Satellite Radio. Roof Rack, Comfortable Car

    Cons: Smaller interior for family, Transported a wheelchair which was tight in the back.

    One Of The Best — Over the years I have owned and drivin full sized trucks, suv's, and cars, including classic -powerful muscle automobiles. If it's domestic, I've probably driven / owned it. The HHR Panel model is hands down one of the best cars I've ever owned. I travel for work (need to haul supplies everyday), where SAFTEY, dependibility, storage, and great gas mileage are a MUST. This wagon has far exceeded my expectations. Not only does it deliver everything I ask, IT IS A PLEASURE TO DRIVE! With more than enough get up and go, for the highway, or aggressive traffic situations. 2 lane highways @ 55 mph she gets 34 avg mpg. With interstate driving at 70 mph is around 29. That is impressive with a load of about 800 lbs. (Maximum load limit is 900 lbs). When I say STABLE SUSPENSION this is why...** Rear suspension has independent torque arms (Not coil springs that sag over time) - the bonus here is you can load the back any way you want, and needent worry about having the weight evenly distributed, because the torque arms automatically compensate! These are solid - well built cars. It will be a very sad day indeed, when I'm forced to buy something different. THE HHR PANEL IS A PERFECT FIT ! I liked it so much I bought another one!

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

    Pros: Quick response (either from a dead stop, OR while on the highway), tight steering, STABLE SUSPENSION - D E P E D A B L E !!!!!  .. starts no matter what the weather. Head Room - I'm 6' tall with no problem getting in/out. HATE my wife's car for that very reason. Cargo room is great - 57 cubic feet behind the seats, you won't find anything with this gas mileage that has that kind of space.

    Cons: Noticed the ride is not as smooth when no weight/hauling supplies in the back, which is normal for any vehicle of this type. 2 seater - not a family sedan, but it will haul your kids' stuff to college and back and then some!.
