2008 Chevrolet HHR LT FWDReview

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!.
