I love this car! I would buy another in a trice if Chevy still made it, but they don't! Easy to drive, huge storage capabilities for a so-called "small" car, sharp-looker and a great color (orange) makes it easy to spot in a parking lot. GM classifies the HHR as a truck - I call it a swingin' ride! This car was driven by tall and taller people and still had plenty of leg-room for all of us with long legs. We put on 60,000 + miles the first year traveling all over MN almost every weekend as President of the MN Jaycees but only about 10,000 a year after that. Easy to park and able to maneuver into small spots - also an excellent tow behind a camper. A unique car and fun to drive. I'll miss it!

We have always had the car serviced at Midway Chevrolet whenever the mileage told us to do that. Monday I was driving it and I went to pass a car. When I went into overdrive there was a "clunk" and I lost the overdrive power. No trouble lights came on so I continued on. The car began to "clunk" whenever I touched the accelerator and then as I drove. (I had to get to a doctor appt.)After the appt. I found a GMC dealer and by that time it was barely running and extremely noisy and the trouble lights were on. The engine had seized and all the oil was gone. I had 141,350 miles on it. We are getting a used engine put in. I thought the engine would last longer. Has this happened to others?

This car was the worst investment I ever made. I've had problem after problem with this thing. The whole car should be a recall. The thing leaks water in the inside the gear shifter broke, blower motor went out, emergency brake cable snapped, I changed the air filter and the in take hose broke, and know the piece of crap is leaking anti freeze. DO NOT BUY THIS CAR. Also the chevy dealer is a bunch of scammers!!!!!

Bought April, 2012. When bought it had 50,432 on it, Just short of 2 years later it's at just over 90k. Average over 20k miles a year. The clutch still feels new and the 2.4 Ecotec hasn't skipped a beat! All this said, I have done the following: -Thermostat replaced (factory installed coolant caused premature breakdown of OEM part. (known issue) - Fixed broken sunroof wind deflector (common issue) - Replaced/upgraded front rotors (OEM known to warp), upgraded to ceramic pads. Total cost, about $230 to fix, all easily done at home. The one thing I will need to have done is suspension bushings. They're shot and make the car creak horribly in cold weather.

Why doesn't anyone know what is wrong with my car

I purchased a used 2006 Chevrolet HHR in 2013. I have not experienced trouble at all until a couple of days ago. I was on the highway coming home from work and my odometers started jumping, then the warning light that display read "power steering". My steering was ok. My car was "jerking" real bad as I was slowing down and changing gears, each time I would press the gas the car would jerk. Got it home then had my neighbor drive it she is a certified mechanic. No problems during that trip. The next morning I drove it to do some errands no problems until I was almost home same issue just the odometer was not jumping and no "power steering" displayed. no one can figure out this issue, anyone ??

Second car ever, lots of ups and downs. Lots of little things, my electrical problems alone have been a total nightmare, the $2K price tag for the AC repairs, the extra-expensive profile tires, the fact that you can't replace ANYthing easily... but I'm trying not to complain here, and here's why. Overall, I bought it used with 36k miles, 5 years later I just passed 265,000! Eaten probably $5,000 in various repairs, and I never did get around to fixing that AC. But it fits my family of 4, strollers and luggage, and I still marvel driving around on FL roads and watching it get 38 MPG. Oh, and the stock stereo has killer bass! Quarter million miles on the original trans & still going!

I originally leased this car new and bought it in '09. I drove the car 350 miles a week for the first 2 years (35,000 mi.) until I retired from General Motors Canada. It now has about 60,000 miles with no problems. Tires and brakes were replaced at about 35,000 mi. Four Uniroyal TigerPaw II snow tires solved the winter driving issues and four Michelin HydroEdges are used in the summer. Oil changes were being done when the oil life monitor indicated. Gas mileage is good at about 40 mpg. (combined) with the automatic transmission. The key sticking issue and the water leakage were fixed at my local dealer to my satisfaction. he still does all the maitenance on the vehicle.

P.O.S.!! WORST CAR EVER!!!

Ive owned many cars over the years and can honestly say this is by far the worst one ive ever had. Bought it at 80K.. 92K it all started: - warped front rotors constantly - road noise is horrible - terrible desgn with blind spots - replaced the engine at 135K - wind shield wipers hitting each other - -0- power - replaced 2K worth of sensors and moduals - seats stained SOOO Easlily - if the battery goes dead, you cant open the rear gate to get to the battery.. JESUS, i absolutely HATE this damned car. Does actually get good mileage.. (when its actually on the road and not in the shop) DO NOT BUY ONE!! Id buy an ugly 1991 ford escort 4 door hatck back with 350K miles first

I too was having problems with standing water in the floorboards. Easy fix.....the sunroof has 2 drain tubes that run down thru the door post, we blew these hoses out (full of nasty black debris). Once they were cleared out I have not had 1 problem with water again. I am so happy with my car. This car gets great gas mileage and performs great. So happy we figured out the problem.

My 2006 HHR is the 2nd car I've ever owned and the first car I've ever made payments on. Needless to say, I was extremely excited when I purchased it. That is, until the next time it rained. My car has leaked during a rain storm a total of 5 or more times now. First, it was through the sunroof (which I assumed was my fault). Then it leaked throught the passenger side door. Now it leaks through both doors. Every time it rains, I end up vacuuming my floorboard and spraying Lysol all over my car the next day. My car has been nothing but a hassle ever since I purchased it in September 2011. I do not recommend purchasing one as I am buying another car as soon as I can.

I just bought my HHR in March of 2012, and I love it! I get great gas mileage! A full tank will last me a month! I'm 17, and will be going off to college, soon- and this will be GREAT. It had 90,000 miles on it when I bought it- and expect it to last long! They are great cars, and very reliable!

I bought my car in 2007 with 15,000 miles on it. It had one owner be fore i purchased it. I would never in my life own another Chevrolet HHR. The door handles breaks easily, and just recently I was going down the road and i was accelerating and the car started going slower and slower. I had to pull to the side of the road to see the problem, and much to my surprise there is no dip stick for the transmission. It has to be brought into a shop to be checked. But how could I bring it, it will not go into drive, only reverse.

My own chevy 2006 HHR Leaks on the passenger side and lately on the drivers side, my windshield whippers transmission just decided that it was going to stop working, i also have had numerous issues with it constantly not starting after leaving it parked for no more 3 minutes and have had to call GM Roadside Assistances more then 15 times in the winter as well as in the summer. My stairing wheel has been shaking constantly for so long and the car only has about 72000KM and all this started way before it even hit 55000KM! And these problems are only the big visible ones there are so many more it's a joke I do not suggest purchasing this vehicule! I hope they discontinue and fast!

I have read the other reviews, and I must disagree with a few of them. I purchased my daughter's car a year ago, and so far so good. Excellent on gas, drives well, and very comfortable. She has not had one single issue with her car yet. So judging on by the perfomance and reliability of her car, I would definetly purchase another one but a higher model. I simply love this car! My daughter (Nera) is into big boy cars such as: Hummers, Chevy's, etc so when I first got this car-she had 2 get use 2 it. But now I can say we both love the quality of the HHR LS's....

Beautiful car from the outside.

I bought my 2006 Chevy hhr ls used with 72000 miles in early 2009. Three months in I begin to experience shaking in the front end when brakes are applied. My brakes get checked and replaced but still the problem continues. Two years and 25k mi later this issue has gotten worse and worse to now the whole steering wheel shakes. Several different dealerships were unable to find the cause of the issue. As many others have stated, the interior stains very easily. Not good for young families. The back interior light dome broke. The front ones on the review mirror flicker on and off and sometimes stay on. Everything is backwards. Headlights can almost not be replaced without going to the dealer.

my 2006 chevy HHR is leaking on the passenger side. The water is coming in from the air filter that is located under the hood. below the right windshield wiper. There is a big pocket and a air filter there so when it rains it runs right in under the dashboard. I read that many other people are having the same trouble. Chevy needs to make this a recall or they are going to lose hard working peoples business. Just one person will tell hundreds of people. If there are enough complaints maybe they will do something about this major problem. I went to [violative content deleted] , Still waiting for a response . Also read they are terrible in the snow even with studs on them.

No problems whatsoever

I mostly bought this car because of the cool retro style, but it kind of goes downhill from there. There's lots of cheap plastic all throughout the interior..everything rattles and buzzes. Wheels are noisy. So- called "chrome" on door handles is starting to peel off like tin foil. No where to put trash. Lame design for window controls (all in the center of the console, not on the doors themselves). Glove box barely big enough to store a map and a couple of fast-food napkins. Cloth interior stains extremely easily, even from water.

I traded in my beloved T-Bird for one of these babies, and I could shoot myself. Yes, the car looks cool, drives well, but built flimsily. Cheap plastic interior all throughout, everything rattles. Lame window controls in center of console. Fabric stains extremely easily..even just water. Haven't had it a full year and it's already spotted up everywhere. If you buy one, get some seat covers right away.

Bought this HHR used with 16000 miles on it (46000 miles now). First the repairs - front stablizer bars, steering column, heater fan motor and front tie rod busings all under warranty. Front brake rotors and shoes on me. New tires. I love this car even with the repairs. If the repairs wern't under warranty I probably wouldn't love it as much. Very comfortable ride, handling for me is just fine (somewhat of an aggressive driver), love the design. This one is a 5 speed manual 2.2 liter engine and it's fun to drive. When I first saw the HHR I wanted one and not disappointed with my choice. Plenty of room for cargo and seating for 4. 3 in rear seat wouldn't be comfortable.

I have had my HHR for 1 1/2 now. Very dependable. Great gas mileage. I am just under 5' 3" so this car fits me perfectly. My boyfriend is 6' 2"- He is comfortable in the passenger seat but he does not like to drive it or ride in the backseat; due to the limited height of windshield and limited leg room. Perfect for an outdoor type family, of average height, with pets and a couple kids who live on a tight budget. Not as quiet and comfortable as my previous Lumina, but definitely low maintenance and dependable for a small family. It is fairly plain on the inside but classy on the outside. I test drove many small to mid-size SUVs prior to picking my HHR; they are not made for short people!

We bought this wagon used with 38k traded a pt cruiser. Our 06'hhr lt2 2.4 L has plenty of go, has all options ht. Lthr., 6 in dash cd. Sat. Pioneer radio, onstar, frt.&rear air bags. Only missing running boards. Wish we had them, the paint@ the rear doors is coming off with out them. My wife is the primary driver she travels a lot with this wagon. Carries all her stuff and room for 3 more passengers. She's very happy. Goes through brakes. R&r frt. Links. Ghost problem with park switch, can't remove key. Suggest extended warranty, if buying used. We did has paid for it self. P. S. Electric power steering went too, also likes to go through tires too soon, must rotate often, about 10k. Now has just over 80k.

Great gas mileage and interior space in the back, but a few problems. Seats are kind of narrow, no front storage, not the best in snow/ice being it is so light. Dash compartment broke, interior mirror falls off, and my radio comes on all by itself, you can hear the springs clunk in the winter; dealer says nothing they can do about either the radio or clunking. Other than that, great space in the back, great gas mileage, full body galvanized steel so won't rust, and have had no problems passing when I need to. Both my big dogs fit in this small car where they would not in others. You get what you pay for.

Ok, first off, this is a car. It's a cheap car. It's not going to be perfect. Most cars aren't, especially ones this cheap. Now, for the price, I feel that it's great! I've loved these cars since they came out, and wanted one since. Beings that I was only 16 at the time, I couldn't afford one. Anyways, the only issues I've had were the front end clunking (sway bar links, struts, and steering column replaced under warranty to fix it) and the sunroof and headliner rattle quite a bit. Crank the radio (on the Pioneer that I have and love!) and you wont notice it! Even took the car on a road trip to Florida from Michigan this spring, and it was fantastic with 3 people and luggage all over

I don't drive the car a lot. I'm a Farmer and drive my truck more. Had a large issue with leaving it outside a few time in heavy rain and it flooded the floor boards, I mean water standing. Took it to the dealer they say its fixed but it's been in the garage for all heavy rains since. Only have 39,000 on it now. But it gets good mpg and you don't lay down to drive it like most cars. Other than the water issue I have had only on issue they replaced the radio but all seems good now just wish I would have got the 100,000 pwr train warranty I got on my 07 silverado but that came free on it.

I bought this car recently and its a hunk of junk. I need a new engine already it cracked for some reason. That's gm for ya. This car is a headache. Don't buy this car. And the sunroof is very noisy and it leaks a lot to if there is a heavy rain. The plastic parts need to be better made to. When I walked out from the store to open my door the handle popped right off. So when I get in my car I have to go to the passengers door just to get in. I regret buying this car. What a waste of money.

We bought this car used and it was in really good condition, It had 22k on it and now has 60k. We have experienced the rotor shudder but took it to a brake shop and had a successful resolution. Luckily we have not had the leak issue, but recently had the gear selector not engage properly to release the key which is now on acc until I can fix the problem. So we love the comfort, gas mileage, sporty handling and great acceleration. Cup holders inadequate for those of you who commute, the window buttons and blind spots took some getting used to but the annoying little problems that cost money that are totally unnecessary if GM could get their quality and design quirks worked out and dealers on board

I just bought my used 2006 HHR LT2 model with all the bells and whistles and I love to drive it. It handles nice and I feel comfortable in it. Gas goes a long way on a tank for at least a week. I got it as my beach buggy, the SUV room and style with nice car features really impressed me. I see a future that I am unsure about after reading some of these reviews though? I agree cup holders are too low, and there are blind spots that I got use to or get the cheap blind spot mirrors. Trying to get use to window control location also, these are basic complaints though, I would of loved a big console with them on that like in a Jeep Liberty or something so easier to reach, but all and all love it.

Quality & Moon Roof Problems

The moon roof made noise from the start. The dealer put foam in it twice. Turns out after the warranty was up that the actuator is failing. It cannot be tightened & is a $1,000.00 repair that GM will not back up. The glass can be seen bouncing. The car hydroplanes in light rain, slush and snow because of the wide low profile tires. Expect to pay a fortune to replace the low profile tires. Window controls are poorly located. Rear passenger seating is small. Wipers stop working sometimes. Takes a technician to replace the air cleaner. Gas mileage is very good. Disappointed that GM will not back up Mfg defects. Do not leave the dealership without documented repair paperwork.

I've run 70,000+ miles and finally needed my first repair - replacing the cheap front brakes. With rarely required routine maintenance (including oil changes every 10K or so with Mobil 1), and 27-30 MPG, you couldn't ask for a more reliable lower cost to maintain car. I got all the options except a sunroof (too tall) that makes it a pleasure to drive. Added antiroll bars that really tightened up highway handling.

I have the LT-2 with 2.4 litre, in Daytona blue,fully loaded.I have owned many cars ,high end and low end and I love this car. [I hate cookie cutter cars]. This car is quiet smooth,fast and fun to drive. Best part is....IT'S CHEAP! Please note there will be some cheap plastic and design flaws you might not like. My window controls and cup holders work just fine, that's really picky.This is a small car that drives like a big car. At least 30 mph, with a big gas tank, it goes forever! These cars are great in SNOW if you put the correct tires on it. I put on Blizzach, she drives through any snow storm. You can't beat this car for the money! You can spend more $$$ if you want better quality. GET ONE TODAY!

This is not a good vehicle for driving in snow. It gets hung up in drifts and is too light to get thru deep snow. I did like all the room when the seats are down and they fold perfectly flat.

Glove box on top of dash, made of all plastic, button broke plastic screw holders and they call it trim work. must replace entire box which in 2008 was $250. Inside door handles are made of plastic and break off in your hand when opening the doors from the inside. though the broken piece is less than a 3 oz piece of circular plastic. The dealer says to fix. You must purchase a entire new door. I was quoted $468 dollars to replace with (another entire door with a plastic handle which will just break again) x 4 doors is crazy and not covered under any of the warrentees they sold me. will not buy another chevy.

Updates "Smooth Ride" 7/22/09. 1,000 city miles after new oil cooler, HHR overheated, towed back to Rydell in Van Nuys. No compression. Diagnosis: head gasket, cost $3000, estimated 4 days in shop. Week later, still in shop, they said the engine block was cracked, needs new engine, cost $6,000, ready five days later. So $1,100 for the oil cooler and service and $6,000 for the engine. Wish I had bought a 100,000 mile warranty. HHR is well maintained, mostly L.A. city driving. Only possible explanation for block cracking is quarterly 800 mile round trip at 75-80 mph. Too much for 4 cyl engine? Would not buy another American car without long warranty.

We fell in love when we saw it on the internet.The first Chevy dealer we went to knew nothing about the HHR and told us they were new and that was about it.We decided to go to a different dealership. Walked onto the lot and found our beautiful HHR just off the truck, We could hardly wait to get it home.Ours has all the bells and whistle and we purchased a Lo-jack .added mud flaps and a bra.We took it on vacation and had a blast. People asked to sit in it and were amazde at the room it has.We have had it since 2/06 with only one problem with the power booster on the breaks.We are considering buying another HHR in the future,

Recently bought my 2006 2LT and almost immediately took it on a 2,000 mile road trip. I highly recommend springing the extra $$$ for a LT w/sunroof. First, this vehicle is a blast to drive; it took the switchbacks of Yosemite 20 mph over the speed limit (yes, I'm bad) with no problem whatsoever. Fuel economy on the trip, which involve A LOT of mountain roads between CA and OR was 28.8mpg The negatives: I really don't mind the cup holders that others mention, but I do not like the type and quality of the materials used in the interior, pretty much all hard/cheap plastics, not worthy of this car. I'm also already having to take it in to have the brakes looked at. Love this vehicle though.

I've owned since June 2006. I drive approx 40,000km a year in an almost equal mix of city/highway and average about 8.1L/100KM or 28.9MPG which is fantastic. On the highway, cruise set to 110km/hr I get about 34MPG and consistently over 840km to a tank. The most I've seen is 890. My car is the top level 2LT with all available options except OnStar. The 2.4L is really smooth, don't feel any vibration at idle or at traffic lights. It has a great MP3 player with Pioneer sound that's loud and clear, and is so technologically advanced. The driver info center is all configurable and programmable to your language and tastes. Remote start is great! So are the very warm heated seats.

I have now owned my HHR for 2 years and can provide an update. I am still very satisfied with the purchase. I get through my daily routine - and then some - without guzzling too much gas. I turn a few heads when the wheels are shined and the windows are down (which is always fun). One thing to note before I go on with my details: the American product is now AT LEAST as good as any foreign product. Take my HHR for example. Potential buyer, be advised... look at the reports!

I sold my 2005 Ram to get this little cutie as I had seen them around town. I miss the big V-8 power and sound, but the little 4 has it's own punch. To date I have not spent 40.00 to fill it up. The Ram would hit nearly 100.00. I still don't get the one power drivers seat when the passenger should have a choice as well. Also the down low center cup holders are a bit inconvenient, but over all this is a pretty fun vehicle. Love the sun roof, and IPOD connection. Oh yeah, I hope they move the window buttons back to the doors where they belong, and also put lower door lock knobs to fit flush with the door. Runs good so far, and it feels lie a pretty tough engine.

General Motors is getting a bad rap about their cars. The engines in the Cobalt and HHR are tried and true Ecotech motors. I have owned this car since it was new. I have put on tires and a brake job. I love this car, not one problem at all. This will match up well against most small imported cars very well. I am thinking of trading in next year for the SS model.

I have owned this car for a little over 2 years and have less than 60,000 miles on it and the power steering has gone out on it. I called GM and their response was that it was no longer under warranty and they were not responsible for it. They offered a50% discount on the almost $900 repair it would take to fix it and only gave me 90 days to fix it. Do not buy this car it is a piece of junk. The Sun roof broke at 37,000 miles, the in dash console broke at around the same time. It cost a lot of money on maintenance and is not worth your money, even GM won't stand behind this piece of junk!

Recently purchased a 2006 HHR 2LT model. On a ski weekend in Michigan, it handled snow fine, and our skis fit inside. I like the styling, nice ride, quality seems pretty good at this stage. People who complain about the performance and handling have the wrong perspective. I bought this car as an affordable daily driver and hauler, with fuel economy as a priority. Highway mileage is in the low 30s at 70 MPH, and the power and handling is what I would expect. I also have a Porsche Boxster S, so I recognize how high performance cars should drive. I just have no illusions that the HHR is one, it is not. For barely over $10k loaded, it is a great value, and a very suitable daily driver.

Bought this car for cargo space & good mileage. Didn't realize it was terrible in snow & ice. Last winter, got stuck at least 15 times. Was in for brakes/ABS & traction control four times before 20,000 miles. This winter, bought a 12-year-old AWD Ford Aerostar to use. Mileage in summer is great on highway driving. But the terrible winter performance forced me to get another vehicle, so it's not worth it. Will dump it as soon as I can, but am upside-down on loan because it dropped so much in value in 1 year. May buy foreign next time, because the Big 3 haven't made anything with good cargo space, good mileage (24+mpg), & AWD. Maybe Subaru, Kia, or Mazda. Very disappointed with GM!

I do like this car, but after having a Buick, you get kind of spoiled. I realized when I bought it that you get what you pay for. There is nothing wrong with the car, except for the car radio turning on by itself, it's just cheaper made. However, I saved money purchasing it also, and it serves my needs just fine. My two big dogs fit in the back seat, and it holds a lot in the back. For a 4 cylinder, it has plenty of power.

I love the look of my HHR. I do have a few issues with it. I have had more visits to the service department (other than routine servicing) with HHR than any other vehicle I have owned. I had the same air condition problem twice, brake problems, raining in the vehicle, starting problems, outside mirrors stopped working, etc. Maybe I just got the bad one out of the bunch. I now worry about what will happen when my warranty ends! I have talked with Chevrolet & the dealership. No one seems to understand my concerns. I had planned to keep this vehicle for a long time.

It was hard to replace my little '99 2dr. Cavalier, but I was lovestruck when I saw the HHR. My local dealer gave me a great trade-in and found a car with the options I wanted. I had an issue with an interior water leak, but it was fixed to my satisfaction. A later pulsating brake issue was resolved quickly with little interruption to my busy schedule. I love the way it handles and interior space is great. The fuel economy is good with the base 2.2L auto. The seats are comfortable and adjust well. I currently lease and hope to buy it at the end. After 30,000 miles, it has been a very practical, reliable and affordable vehicle.

My HHR has had a few problems that I see other buyers have so I thought I would share them. The wet floor board when it rains is caused from a defective installation of a deflector shield under the hood. Mine just all the sudden started leaking & when I took it to Chevy they told me it was a recall & mine just fell off the car. Experienced the can't get the car out of park & can't get the key out of the ignition both of these are caused from the electronic key needing to be re-programed. Mine is equipped with the volume feature that automatically turns the radio up and down with road noise.I would be driving at 70 miles an hour & it would turn it down all the down. They fixed it. How?

This has been a great vehicle. We have 38k miles on it with no problems. The mileage is great: 32MPG Highway and 25city. The fold down seats are very easy to operate allow for ample storage. We have two kids in car seats and there is plenty of room for them in the back. I am 6'2" and find it a little difficult to see stop lights under the rear view mirror. This car was not designed for taller people! The window buttons are on the center console down in front of the shifter and a total pain to get to, but as with any vehicle you get used to the controls. As for the fit and finish, we have been very pleased. You get what you pay for in this vehicle.

Good Car

I love my HHR! However, been to the dealer several times with rattle. Had steering column replaced two times, dash lights flicker, hub is bad, and radio issues. Dealer sent me home with bad hub, hope safe, he says is safe to drive. Replacing steering column did not help, as it began rattling again after a few weeks. Yes, I agree need better cup holders and window controls on door. Spruce up the interior, other manufacturers know how to do an interior right. We baby boomers love comfort and luxury.

I purchased my car and fell in love with the car. We drove it to Myrtle Beach on vacation and on return I had to invest $450 in new brakes and rotors. The car is only a little over a year old and is already rusting in some places. The Chevy emblem is chipping. I have 40,200 miles on my car and then had to replace wheel bearings. If you are buying the car for gas mileage, this is the car for you! If you are looking for durability- you may want to consider something other than the Chevy HHR.

Wish it was better built

Great car. I wish Chevy had put a little bit more Chevy heart and soul. This could have been the best light truck/full sized sedan car ever made. My two biggest complaints are the fact that whenever it rains the car leaks on the floorboard If you own one keep an eye on this. The other thing is the fabric they used for the for the seats. Don't let a drip of water touch, it will stain.

I bought my car cause I loved the style. My 2006 had only 8,032 miles on it when I bought it. It now has a little over 10,000 miles on it. I do not like where the window controls are or the cup holders but other than that it is great. The car is not for a big person my son and husband are both 6 ft and say it is to small for them leg and head room. It is just fine for me!

I have driven from Ohio to Florida 3x and counting. With 64,000 miles the HHR is still going strong. Avg.29gpm it is easy on the wallet and the lumbar support makes the long drives a pleasure. I was disapointed just after I bought mine they lowered the price and added the 100000 warrenty,just my luck. The 2.4 175hp motor climbs the WVA hills easy. I did have a problem with the front stabelizer bar at 32,000 miles,just after the warrenty ran out but it was a cheap repair. The brakes going down hill at speed pulsate and I had 2 tires break their belts(not Chevys problem) I love this little car and thought about trading it in on a new one with the warrenty but don't want to give mine up.

The car itself is a pleasure to drive. I have always been a Chevy girl, all V8. This is the first 4cyl car I have owned and let me tell you, it has gusto, of course not as much as a Silverado or a 69 Malibu, however, it serves its purpose, especially with fuel prices. This is my second one, first one went into repair shop becuase I could not get it out of park, needless to say, they were not able to fix it, after 3 months, so the lemon law applied and I was able to get a new one without a problem. Why? you ask, because i loved the car so much. My current car has not had any major problems with the exception of some radio stations not coming in clear, other than that, I'm satisfied!

This car was absolutely the best car I have ever owned. I could not believe the value packed into this car. There is no one out there that can go head to head with the HHR on price, performance, you name it. I sold it recently to buy a Chrysler Crossfire, to be honest I wish I had my HHR back. Don't get me wrong the Crossfire is awesome, but with the 18" rims and 40 series Nittos that HHR handled as well as any car I have ever driven. I honestly can't say much of anything negative except they need more cup holders for the driver. I had the 175hp version of the 4cyl. engine. I think back, my 1984 Mustang GT had 175hp. I have to laugh now looking back. I want the SS!

When we bought our HHR It was our first new car. We thought it was going to be the last new car we would buy for a long time. Little did we know it was an electrical nightmare. The radio shorted out two times. The brake lights shorted out. The headlights would not go out. The inside lights stayed on and the door chime would'nt quit dinging. Then the electrical wireing fried under the dash. The dealer had to replace the complete harness from front to back. Now the wipers go nuts when they are on intermedant. The headlights are blinking off and on. Now the radio is starting to go out again. I wish we had bought something else. Never again

I thought these were funny looking cars till I saw one at the Philly auto show. Then I realized how hot they are. I had a Focus from the first year they sold them, so I was nervous buying the debut HHR. In the year that I've owned it, I haven't had a single problem. I love driving it, the handling is great, and I love the style. A very reliable, fun to drive, comfy car.

It's fun to drive, has tons of cargo space and gets great gas mileage. There are a few things Chevy needs to add but overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed owning this vehicle and look forward to more years of great use.

I love driving my 2006 HHR. It comes with many standard features that on most cars you would pay extra. My problem since I have owned it include having to get keys reprogrammed, radio making noise when not on and would pop when turning on (had to be reprogrammed), had to get gear shift replaced because not unlocking doors when put out of gear and now in shop twice for oil leak (replaced gasket but still leaking a puddle of oil when sitting. I have 29,000 miles on my vehicle.

I bought this car after testing a Matrix. The HHR felt like a much better car. My only option is automatic tranny, but it comes with so much standard stuff that I am very pleased. I love the information center and the mp3 plug-in feuture. I drive 50 miles each way to school 3 times a week and I find the car extremely comfortable and I really appreciate the gas mileage, it's awesome. It's great for the money, I feel like I'm driving a far more expensive car. It fits my wife, 2 kids, and all the gear (strollers and such.) What else can I say? If you're considering one, I'd highly recommend it.

I purchased my HHR in the spring and loved driving it for about 8 months. Then winter came. The windows continuously freeze up. I have to scrape them to get them to roll down even though there is not obvious signs of freezing. The vehicle is in an unheated garage. I have also found the the struts are terrible. Every time I hit a bump, they squeak. With frost heaves in Maine, I squeak all the time.

The vehicle is very attractive and urban design. Great alternative to the PT Cruiser design. Fun to drive when is not in the garage. Great fuel mileage on long hauls drive 1300 mile trips often and only use 3 tanks of gas for the whole trip. When it comes to reliability and performance it becomes a different story. I purchase new vehicles often about every 2-3 years and this will probably be my last Chevrolet purchase. Chevrolet customer service is great but if they cant build a reliable car then its not for me to purchase would recommend Toyota, Honda or Saturn.

Pick up and ride quality are good. Interior design is adequate, but irritants are a dime a dozen. Where's the shift selector indicator ? Buzz in the fan at 1? Wind noise at 80 kmh left hand side in mirror ? And on and on. GM engineers missed the boat on the interior ergonomics. Even the Koreans have a much more ergonomic interior. The seats are uncomfortable on long hauls. Steering wheel belongs on an 18 wheeler. No hand grips at 3 passenger doors. No manual control of dash lights. That stupid light sensor should be shot.

We were at first very excited to purchase this attractive and different vehicle. It was fun to drive and my first Chevy purchase. Shortly after, began multiple warranty problems. We have had an ac compressor go out; a hub bearing replaced; a shifter replaced; and a huge water leak through the cowl seal. Cosmetically, the interior can't withstand even minor use without dirt showing; cheap carpeting and fabrics. The railboard rubber came unglued and buckled. The paint chips easily. The radio pops, even with the upgraded Pioneer model.The third break light fried. I really like to drive the car for the exterior looks, but it isn't a reliable vehicle for a commuter who needs to use it everyday.

I have owned my HHR for one month. I am amazed with just about every feature of this car. It rides so smooth, handles well and gets fantastic mileage (around 27-32 mpg) overall. It has great power, I got the 2.4 litre motor with automatic transmisson. My HHR is equipped with the 16" wheels, which ride fantastic. I am more concerned with ride over performance. I drive about 20,00 miles a year and can't think of a better vehicle for what I do. The overall build quality of this car amazes me. It feels so solid for such a small car. The paint quality is fantastic and the interior is very tastefully done. I would highly recommend this car to anyone.

The retro design is appealing to this old man with desires formed in the 1960's. The 2400 engine is amazingly responsive. The transmission has a lot to do with the responsiveness. Both are smooth without the power mower sound. The entry and seating are suitable for this arthritic. We use it for short runs and errands. For journies longer than a few hundred miles, the crampedness and the small driver's legroom would become cumbersome. With 20,000 miles we had to have the rotors turned as it shimmied violently at high speed braking. I understand this has been a problem with other owners. We will see how this plays out. Being rural it is nice to have nearby GM service.

It was my wife's decision to buy this car. She purchased the 2006 Red Spring Edition package. As we also have a Trailblazer, I felt that she could have the HHR and I'd keep driving the TB. I've never been able to convince myself that I could get by with 4 cylinders having grown up in the muscle car age group. But, we've parked the TB in the garage and have driven the HHR 99% of the time! I was wrong about owning a 4 banger as this car has proven to me time and time again. Don't settle for the 2.2 engine, to sluggish! Buy the 2.4 with 175hp! It is quite zippy! Our HHR still has people turning their heads when we drive by and others stop us to ask questions about it. Buy one! You'll like it!

I've had my HHR for over a year now, and while it's fun to drive, i've had no shortage of problems, namely ongoing electrical problems with the signal lights, windshield seal leak, leak in windshield causing failure of heating system, paint chipping along bottom and rear, deprogramming of key/ignition, signal light failure, occasional popping noise when the radio is off, sticky first and second gear. That being said, it's a very unique and fun car. I've put 18" wheels on, making it sporty and quick handling. Stiff suspension, much like a sports coupe, especially with larger wheels on. Gas mileage is great, about 25 mpg in city/rush hour/stop and go traffic.

I bought my HHR last year, and love everything about it. It is great on gas, and has a lot of room to haul things around. I bought it since I have 2 kids that play soccer, and it was voted the safest car on the road, in fact my insurance went down over $600 for the year! If that isnt reason enough to buy it then let me add that it is comfortable and roomy on the inside. The outside style is awesome, I love when people stop me in parking lots to ask me about the performance and things like that. Trust me, I would not want to drive anything else.

Issues with HVAC lights blinking on and off, battery going dead three different times for no reason, rear wiper motor have to be replaced for intermittent operation,windows that freeze and will not open after car has been warmed up for 45 minutes and last but not the very leaset, snow and ice build up at the front door which rubs the paint when opening the door. With all this said, I plan on replacing this car after driving for just 10,000 miles and I was a loyal GM owner for over 30 years.

I love this car! Have had it for 3 months and drive it 90 miles back and forth to work every day. The retro styling is really cool. I have the chrome package which adds a nice touch as well. It is fun to drive and I average about 30 miles per gallon. I don't mind the window buttons on the center console as I haven't had power windows before, so I am not used to them being on the door. At first the roof light that shines on the center console bothered me, but I got used to it pretty quickly.

I always like the HHR's but hate PT cruisers. I could not pass up this deal a 06 for $13000. Even through the door molding could be a little better and not so cheesy Im very happy with the car. The visability is very different but not impossible with minor adjustments to how you use vision for everyday driving. Overall very happy and glad I got it.

GM has hit a grand slam home run with the HHR. My buying criteria were simple: comfort, fuel economy and air. HHR is exceptional on all 3 counts. The front seats are among the best in the industry. At 7.7l/100km mixed driving I'm more than sold. Add in the reliability of the Ecotec power train and the Getrag transmission; the roominess; the retro styling; the lower cost of repair (it costs a lot money to ship parts from Asia); the kart" like handling; and the HHR becomes a Honda beater! GM has taken stock of the market and taken straight aim at the Asian imports, whacking Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Mazda right up the side of the head. Well done GM!

"Her Hignesses Ride" is what I call it! I love it, drives like a sports car, works like an SUV, eats like a compact, great gas mileage! It's like a computer on wheels. Love them gadgets and read outs! Love the solid feel, the way it hugs the road. I feel safe and secure in it. Only fault is the center console design, they kinda screwed up the cup holders, but I knew that going into it. If you want to use the cup holder, you might as well forget using the arm rest. But, all the other great features out way that.

I rated this car highly when I first bought it but after 15 months of ownership, the honeymoon is over. The build quality of this vehicle is horrid. I have been a loyal buyer of domestic cars and my last two purchases from GM (both 2006 vehicles) are dogs. The HHR has been in the shop for a myriad of problems from front brake rotors, electrical issues, wiper problems, injector replacement, pulling, among others. The metal is paper thin and susceptable to dents. It is a fun car to drive when the check engine light is not on (which is about 50% of the time). My dealership has been great but I can not say the same for the engineers that built this piece of junk.

Love this car! Have owned it 3 weeks now. We've taken 2 day trips in FL and averaged 32.3 MPG! In town average is 29 MPG. Compfy, quiet ride, room enough for all our stuff,& everyone crowds around to ooh and aah over it. Even my 80 year old parents can get in and out without help and our 29 yr old son is drooling over it. Cool styling, comfort, quiet, roomy, versitile, and good gas mileage. We got lots of options which really enhance the experience. Sunroof, OnStar, satellite radio, running board etc. Never thought I'd want all that, but now I can't imagine not having them. You do have to use 91 octane gas which we achieve by alternating fill-ups at the 1/2 full point w/mid and high test.

I bought the HHR to use it as a work vehicle because I haul a variety of odd objects on a daily basis. It carries a ton of stuff for such a compact vehicle. I soon found out that the HHR was much more than just a reasonably priced fuel sipping "stuff" hauler. Last week I was rear-ended by a full size Dodge cargo van. I was stopped but the van hit me so hard that I was pushed 20ft by the impact (with my brakes applied). I figured the tailgate would be in the back seat judging from such a hard hit but there was almost no visible damage other than some scuffs on the bumper. The Dodge could only be so lucky. Its bumper had to be pried off of its front wheels before it could even move.

I haven't had this car long but from the time that I have had it I believe it will give me years of fun driving. The styling is masterful but the engine could use more umph. The vehicle is well built. Actually put together like a Swiss watch, and it runs like a Timex! I have the 5 speed Getrag manual and I wished that I had the automatic. However this transmission is very good. I would like to add an STS Turbo if I could find one. I would recommend this vehicle to any and everyone.

I've owned 30 cars including 6 Hondas and 3 Toyotas. This is the best car I've ever owned. 31500 miles and zero problems. Fit and finish are tops. Zero rattles, wind noise, leaks, buzzes, hums. 2.4 engine is a must. Pioneer sub woofer makes for great sound system. As a photographer I get tons of equipment with fold down seats that fold down evenly. Plus some great hiding bins. Window switches a little funky and horn is wimpy. I'm a fog light freak and these are the best I've ever had. This car was $5000 under Camry with similar equipment. Ya I'd go for a 200 mph rig, but if gas goes over $3.00 a gallon again, maybe not. A fuel cell powered HHR would be totally awesome.

I have a long daily commute, and this car has made it so much better. I actually enjoy it now, well, as much as you can anyway. The car handles great, and has a really smooth ride. I like the fact that it really seems to fit females. The armrest to steering wheel span for example. I feel out of place in pickup trucks that seem to be built just for men.

I really like my HHR. Good for driving around town with the kids, but don't expect to make a major Home Depot run in it. Storage space is pretty limited. Also, these are, without question, just about the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had in a car (and I've driven Corvairs and VW Bugs!) Overall though, a good car for tricking out, driving around town, handing down to your kids, etc.

It handles very well, is comfortable to ride in, has a great sound system, and rides very well, with no rattles or squeaks. I bought this car to tow behind a motorhome, and it is equally well suited for that task as well. I was always a Ford man for years, but when I saw photo's of this vehicle when it came out, I just had to have one, and when I took it for a test drive, I was convinced, for sure.

I bought this car knowing I could not afford the bigger price tag of the big SUVs plus I love the old school look GM is bringing back. It is very roomy inside even if it doesn't look like it would be. The chrome package makes everything stand out and I highly recommend getting it. I did upgrade to a 2.4 on the engine so I can't say if the smaller engine is good but the 2.4 is excellent. There are times it gets sluggish but only when I am trying to hotrod myself into a spot on a busy road. This car rides smooth. The only issue I have had with it is that occasionally the key gets stuck in the ignition and I have to shift the gear back and forth to get it to release. Cup holder is in bad spot also.

This was the first one in northern MI sold. Had some new model quirks and bugs to work out, dealership took care of all of them except for one, which needs GM's help. All 4 doors are rusting at the seam on the inside door bottom. GM seems to be giving me the runaround. I want either new doors (as an attempt to repaint didn't work) or a new car. Other than that it gets OK gas mileage 23 around town, 28 on the freeway (thought it would do better.) Put a real console in the car and move the window switches. Love the heated leather seats and XM radio. Quality would be better if it wasn't built in Mexico.

I really enjoyed having this vehicle. To me it was the best vehicle in its price range at the time. I had owned this vehicle for about a year. I had totaled this vehicle in a rollover accident. Me and my passenger walked away with just scratches. That says something for the safety of the vehicle. I was disappointed that it had rolled over so easily though. Just a sharp turn of the steering wheel at 65MPH with the trunk full and it flipped down the median of the highway several times. I am afraid to own another one but will purchase a similar style of vehicle.

We owned an SUV, and with the higher prices of gas we wanted a more economical vehicle. I spotted an HHR and fell in love with its quirky look. We started researching this vehicle and knew it would suit the needs of our family. Our insurance premiums, car payment and gas consumption dropped. What could be better? I've always owned more normal and boring vehicles so I wanted something spunky. I ordered the blue HHR and customized it with the leather interior, 6 CD changer, and order a 5-speed. It handles beautifully in all types of weather. We have seat warmers (very nice in winter.) The air bag automatically disengages when a smaller person is sitting in the front seat.

I traded a van for the HHR because of the smaller size and lower access to the rear cargo area. The car runs great and gets good mileage, 23 mpg or so in almost exclusively stop and go driving, and approximately 34 mpg on a 1000 mile vacation trip. The driver info center is handy, showing all the necessary numbers at the push of a button.

I actually sold my Harley to get this vehicle. I am glad to say we made a good choice with the HHR. For my wife with the kids, she has plenty of room for shopping bags and items in the trunk area. We went with the LS because neither one of us care about power seats or chrome mirrors. As far as the hubcaps, we are looking into getting rims for it anyway, so why spend the extra? Also, on the base stereo, it is fine, good volume, bass, and treble. The 2.2 engine has plenty of pick-up and great gas mileage, averaging 33mpg on the freeway. Usually around 30mpg per tank, if not more, depending on how much stop and go driving we do.

I owned my HHR for 8 full months. I ran into the rear end of a tractor trailer, and wasn't injuried with the exception of an airbag burn. I loved my HHR and will own another one very soon. To me, there is no comparison to a PT. I've driven both, and enjoyed my HHR ten times more. My HHR was reliable, agile, and had great looks. GM has really turned their program around with this vehicle, and I can't say enough about the Ecotec. What a great engine. I just hope they introduce a boosted version in the HHR soon.

Great choice

I've had my HHR LT2 since July, and it's been great. I got the loaded version with every option offered, and I've been very pleased. It was relatively inexpensive, it's comfortable and versatile. I'm coming from a Ford Expedition, so it was a bit of an adjustment, but it works. My wife and kids had to warm up to the styling, but I love it. I'm over 6 foot and I found both the front and back seats roomy and comfortable. The engine is plenty peppy for a little 4 banger, which provides a much appreciated fuel efficiency. And the leather package is pretty nice. The stereo / CD player sounds great and I love the ipod jack.

Long haul

Also enjoyed the people looking as we pass by. It has a very open feel with the rear seat folded down, and is great for hauling things.

I was skeptical when I first saw the leak photos of the HHR. Unable to determine the dimension and target market, I wasn't sure what to think. As soon as I saw one on the road, I was sold. We needed a 4 cylinder and this one comes nicely wrapped in distinctive sheet metal. For a car with a base price in the mid-teens, this is got to be the best bang-for- buck set of wheels on the market. If GM detractors can get over the overcooked Luminas and Caviliers of recent past they'd find an excellent small car. Fit and finish are tight, great colors, amazing array of options. I bought the loaded 2LT for invoice and would do it again, and again. Too much fun for the economy of a four-banger!

This is the first new car I have ever had and I'm glad I bought one. It has plenty of space inside. It has a fun retro classic look. It gets all the mileage it claims to get, and even more if you drive slower than 65 on level ground. The automatic transmission is responsive and the little 4 banger is plenty of power for this car. If the engine were bigger it obviously wouldn't get that all important 30 MPG! For an inexpensive vehicle, I can't say enough positive things about it. I highly recommend the HHR if you like the utility of wagons, coupled with a car based body style. I hope Chevrolet will offer a 2 door panel delivery version of this car in the future.

Nice Ride

We put 2000 miles on our HHR the frist week we had it. It is a great road car to travel in. Comfortable seating up front and a lot of luggage room in back. Solid little car. Lots of miles between gas stations. Cruised the mountains at 75-80 mile per hour without a problem. All in all, a best buy for me. I generally but a new vehicle every two years but think that this one will get out of that rotation. It is a keeper.

I love my HHR. I love the design and the comfort. It is very easy for my 4 year old to get in and out and do her own seat belt, which was important. For a small car I was happy to find not only a booster seat but a full size car seat fit comfortably in the back seat. The window controls could have been put in a better place and I feel like I am sitting up high. Overall I am very happy with my HHR. Gas mileage is great. Only one cup holder in the back. That kinda stinks.

Touch all the bases, Chevy hit a home run. A feature rich car, fun to drive, not a lot of money, great fuel mileage and you don't look like anything else going down the road. Any negatives, such as the window button location, are nit pickey. This is a first year model and there will be improvements. Hopefully Chevy will listen to the owners and make the necessary changes and improvements.

Ok, I posted a review not long after I purchased this car. I rated it a 10. Now that I've owned this car almost 11 months, I wish I could say the same as before. Not long after the first review, I started having electrical problems. The dealer made 3 attempts to find the problem with no results. They finally pulled codes on the 4th attempt when I finally got it in with the "TC off" light on. Then the district service manager won't authorize local dlrs to attempt to fix my car: bought in Pittsburgh 2 hrs away. I love the car, but not the problems. Other problems: stereo, headlights, security, trans noises. I don't think I'll buy another GM. Poor dealer/GM support. Buying import next time.

My wife and I have traditionally purchased foreign cars, but she saw a picture of the HHR and was interested. We test drove it and were very impressed. Ride and handling are excellent, surprisingly quiet vehicle, suprisingly comfortable seats. Interior is well laid out with lots of storage space. Retro appearance is kind of fun, but it was the value that sold us. We bought the base model and didn't add any options because it didn't need any in our opinion, the base model is very well equipped. We just took it on our first road trip, it was a pleasure to drive. If GM can continue to put out vehicles like this they may be on the way back.

I knew it was slow, but I have gotten used to simply pushing it a little. I love the exterior styling, but wish GM had used better quality sheet metal (dings with ease) and interior parts. Cup holder placement is useless, and it needs better storage. That said, I love the retro look, the ease of ingress and egress, the hauling capacity witht the seats down and the $50 a month drop in insurance over my 2001 4Runner. This car needs 25 more horses for this enthusiast. I intend to install a cold air induction to make it sound and move a little better. Too many PT Cruisers out there. 5 more miles per gallon would be good too.

I have looked at the PT cruisers for a long time but I think Chevrolet has one upped Chrysler with HHR. I wanted to get the orange color but it was very scarce almost bought one but hesitated and it sold right after I left dealer. I ended up getting a red one because the 0 percent intrest was the deal clincher. I really like the styling. It is classy , retro, and eye catching on a budget . These cars start out at about 17 grand and get 30 mph on the freeway and look cool . What more needs to be said? Chevrolet has hit a home run.

I've only had this car for a month - but everyday I'm so impressed with it. I went from an SUV to the HHR - and it only took a few days to become used to the front wheel drive and lower profile. It's fun to drive - lots of pickup despite the 4 cyl motor. Lots of room on the inside - only complaint is the placement of the armrest - a little out of place. Nice in dash storage, and plenty of room for supplies under the back cover above the spare tire. Stereo booms - and has easy to use controls. I was surprised with all the extras on the LS - power everything - it's a lot of car for the money - so very happy - and it just looks hot to drive! Lots of looks and questions!

My only gripes with my HHR 2LT are that: 1. The rear spoiler (which I did not order) is a *requirement* to keep rain/snow runoff off of the back glass. It's difficult to see; 2. There was no available back-up sensor. It's difficult to see when parallel parking; 3. The supercharged engine from the Cobalt is NOT available; 4. The mileage isn't great for a 4- cylinder. It would probably be better with a 5-speed automatic (like is offered in the Honda Civic...a like-priced vehicle). Other than these items, it's quite a lot of vehicle for the price. Front and side visibility are great, the breaks have good feel, the controls are thoughtfully laid out. Good bang-for-the-buck!

Such a comfortable drive, I've only had it a few weeks and I've got no real complaints. The seats are quite comfy, although the headrest adjuster button is difficult to easily get at. I wish the panel between the front seats was higher, it is low for reaching down. The gas guage dial - my other GM cars read from empty (left) to full (right), this car is the opposite, it's not a big deal once you know it, it just surprised me a few km into picking it up from the dealer the gas warning light went on and I thought the tank was full, thank goodness I was in the city.

When I first looked at the HHR, I immediately drew a comparison between it and Chrysler's PT Cruiser. However, a retro wagon appearance is all they share. The HHR is towable 4 wheels down in an automatic, the PT is not. And although they have similar cargo room (about 65 cu ft., the seats need to be removed from the PT to accomplish this where in the HHR, they fold flat. Additionally, many items, like A/C and cruise control are options on the base model PT, but standard in the HHR LS. Finally, with a larger fuel tank & better fuel economy (23/30 vice 21/26 for PT with an automatic) I will be stopping less often to fill up. So the HHR is not a copy, but an upgrade from the PT Cruiser.

My first Chevy in 12 years and the moment I saw it on the road, I fell in love. Had 1994 Chevrolet SS and it beats that one. It is a head turner and I believe the PT Cruiser is a vehicle of the past, compared to the HHR. The ride, the look, the color (black) with the running boards, sunroof and soon to add fog lamps and roof rack will really set it off. Nice going to the people at GM.

My car gets 20 mpg in town driving and 30 mpg highway. I have had it 6 months. It accelerates quickly enough to get on freeways safely. The heated seats need to be re-designed so more of the seating surface gets warm. The only complaint I have is about wind & road noise, especially at highway speeds, the noise sounds like a window is not completely shut, especially on passenger side, between the front & rear door. This appears to be the result of a design flaw. There is only one rubber seal around the front doors, & if there were two, like on the rear doors, I think the problem would not exist.

This is a nice, cheap alternative to a very small SUV. Good gas mileage, cheap insurance, and room to store stuff when you fold down the seat. I did have to take back to the dealer to get work done on brake rotors at only 5000 miles though, seems fine now. The gearing in the automatic is very high though, so it seems a bit sluggish unless you really punch the gas, but when you do the engine gets very noisy at high RPMs, much more so than many other 4 cylinder cars out there. This car woudl really benefit from a 5 speed automatic. Great car for the money though, as long as you don't expect the highest refinement or a silky smooth engine for the price.

I've been impressed with the overall quality of our new HHR. We got ours close to fully loaded and it has features you'd expect to see only on much more expensive cars. It feels more solid than our Honda Accord and has a smoother, quieter ride too. It's not very fast but I guess that's the trade off for the good gas mileage. Overall I'm happy to find an affordable car with good style and lots of cool features that has excellent safety ratings(and side air bags) that's excellent on gas. Chevrolet needs to build more cars like this.

I love my HHR. It is fun to drive and the gas mileage is good. There are times that I get 28 to 30 mpg around town. It has cut my cost by 25 percent. The car is tight and very quiet even with the sun roof. The comfort is great. I am a big man, not tall but big and I feel very comfortable in the drivers seat. Every thing is in arms reach and easy accessible.

Would buy another

For the price this is a nice car. It get a lot of looks as I pass by. I was quite impressed with the power that is has for a 4 cyclinder vehicle. I am a thick woman and I can easily get in and out of the vehicle. The one program I have so far is at drive through windows, and trying to find a sun deflector for the inside (the folding kind) I have checked some of everywhwere, can you help me please, because the window is so small it is very hard. It steers very easy.

Great gas mileage in town

Very comfortable to drive, hugs the road on curves on dry and wet payevment. Quiet inside. Roomy for a small car. Decent acceleration. Passengers say it is very comfortable in the back seats. Excellent fuel economy 9.2 to 10.1 l/100k in city driving. Colour tone of paint is very good {silver with a hint of tan}

Excellent Car for the Money

I love the unique styling of the HHR. I am always getting comments about how it looks. The drive and economy is better than I expected, but am grateful because I spend a lot of time behind the wheel. Very spacious for the size.

My 1st new car and I love it!

I got this car on June 1st of this year, I saw it in an auto show in FL and I had to get it, I finally did and I am so happy!, I made it part of the family and even gave it a name...Wheelie. I have yet to go on long outings with Wheelie but I will soon, the 3 weeks Wheelie has been with me no has been wonderful. I had people approach me and say what a cute car it is.(Although I say Wheelie is a truck) I am a handicap and Wheelie's cargo space is excellent for my wheelchair. by the way, I ordered Wheelie with auto trans., 172 HP engine, and chrome tip, That's all I need, but a wheelchair lift would be great for me. Overall, Wheelie is a fantastic little vehicle, and I love him dearly.

A lot of fun in a small package

While we purchased this vehicle for my wife to use, I find myself using it every opportunity I get. The driving position is quite confortable, the front seats accomodate my 6'2" large frame and due to the upright sitting position I can move the seat forward quite a bit without compromising my driving comfort. My only complaints are reduced visablity looking over my left hand shoulder, the lack of a center console, the power window positions and the lack of low end umph in the 2.4 litre motor, but then again I'm used to the 5.7 litre V8 in my 95 Impala SS. Overall it's a great car for the value and the styling is always refreshing to see. The sunburst orange metallic is easy to find

I enjoy driving this vehicle a great deal. One of the main reasons I purchased it was for the seating features, as I have back problems and the adjustable seat/lumbar support/heat was very attractive to me. The placement of the power window controls are odd (right side "floor" near gear shift)and it's hard to clean the window under the back wiper. The main problem I've had is frequent internal electrical shorts - the horn has gone out twice and I have had problems with the power seat a time or two. It's all covered under the warranty though. I'm hoping it gets sorted out before the warranty expires. I love the car though - lots of room, features, and a thoroughly fun drive.

It took a month of looking to find the car. In late 2005 they were hard to get. Great styling, its boxy shape and fenders remind one of the old gangster cars. Very roomy inside considering the external dimensions of the vehicle. It fits in narrow parking spaces and has a lot of cargo room with the rear seat folded down.

We love this car!

I have greatly enjoyed my HHR. The only problem I have is the radiator is in the wide open for rocks and road debris to get in. Within 500 miles I had to replace the radiator due to a rock puncturing it. All I was doing was driving down the freeway.

I was able to drive this vehicle last summer when they had just come on the market in California, Since then I hav studied these cars and compared them, I have found that there is not another vehicle out there that compares in price, comfort and ability to facitlitate all the needs I really needed in a car, I have short and very tall family members who range from five foot two to six foot three and everyone fits comfortably. The gas mileage and power are perfect too. I received weekly updates from Chevy on this car and I must say saftey and comfort for my family is number one and I definitely have found it here in this vehicle. Drive one one and you will see exactly what I mean.

I have driven both the 2006 PT Cruiser and the HHR. I am not a Chevy Man by any means. Nor am I a Chryler Man either. I must truly say that the HHR fits my needs and is an all-around better car than the PT Cruiser. The Cruiser seems outdated now. There is hardly any improvements from previous models. Yet, the price keeps climbing. I am over 6 foot tall and I am very comfortable in the HHR. There are more options available on the HHR too. However, In Chrysler defense, I must admit I would like to have a turbo on my HHR. But I'm sure there's a supplier working on that as we speak. I really felt cramped in the PT Cruiser in comparison to the HHR. I just think that the HHR is a better deal.

Handles with unexpected precision and quickness. Just a joy to drive. I'll never go back to Jeeps again!

I was hesitant to get the new HHR, after driving a Kia Sorento for 2 years while sitting higher with better view. The 4 cylinder did worry me a little. No worries anymore as the HHR has great pick up and is really peppy, very cool and fun to drive, the White 2 LT model has OnStar,XM radio, sunroof, cashmere leather, high polished wheels, heated seats,rear spoiler and great sounding pioneer system with 6 disc CD. I love this car after our first trip got 27 MPG while using AC and driving 75 MPH (still less than 500 miles so it's not broken in yet). You can't go wrong with this car and the features you get. I highly recommend the Chevy HHR

Driveway to driveway 2062 miles with average 29.7 with normal I-10 cruise control set at 80mph. Shorter run to Phoenix got 31.9 on I-10 and in an around town w/ac so far 27.6.

I purchased my HHR LT in MD. I drove it from Maryland to Florida, then from Florida to Texas. I am 66 years old, and never felt more safe as I was alone on this trip. It handled with such ease and I could "whip" in and out of traffic when necessary. It handled like a dream on my trip. It really held the road with great accuracy and definition. HHR, where have you been all my life? You're beautiful and I love you.

I bought the car from a dealer about 200 miles away from my house and drove it home and it got a average of 35 mpg! The best thing is that I got it for around $16,500. Why buy Japanese when you can buy American and feel good about it.

It is an eye catcher, have had loads of people asking what it is, what a great feeling to know you have somehing that other people like. The best yet in autos for me.

This car can get almost 600 miles on a tank of gas, I am not kidding you about this. The back seat folds totally flat, it's a traditional station wagon. Even with the back seat up there is plenty of room for most trips. The looks? Well, that's a personal choice, but it suits me well. Extremely quiet, it rides on the interstate like my mother's Grand Marquis. Brings a smile to my face every time I drive it.

I would recommend this car to anyone that is interested in it.

The HHR looks nice and has some good features for a low priced SUV. The remote start, dashboard storage, and cool chrome displays are all solid, especially on a car at $15,000. Only drawback so far has been when I need to push the endgine for a littel extra power, it delivers but when the AC is on, you can tell the power drop a little bit.

I purchased my HHR April 10, 2006. I have a metallic blue HHR, and I closed my deal online. I had never heard of this car until my salesman suggested I check it out. I love this car! I elected to get the basic LT with cloth seats and the six speaker system. It comes with a CD player, power everything, and theft system. I didn't need leather seats, so this model was fine. I thank all of you guys for helping me make my decision. I check every review, and I was sold. I didn't realize how nice my car was until I walked my dog one day, and turned back and looked at my car. It is beautiful. For those who compare this to a PT Crusier, can you see? The PT Cruiser is a hearse!!

The design is really classy. Everyone that sees my HHR loves the look, the color, the style. I was pulled over by a police officer one day, not because I was doing anything wrong, he wanted a closer look at my car. The only thing that really took some getting used to was where the buttons were for the windows. It could use maybe one more cupholder too. I love it.

I love my new HHR 2LT. I have just about all the options available. I've only been driving it for about 2 weeks at the time of this review. I only have 2 real complaints about the HHR. I do not like the power windows located in the center console. I am not used to them, and they seem awkward. They may be good placement in the winter months, so snow doesn't get in them. The other thing I don't like is the ability to flip one switch to turn on all the car dome lights from the driver's seat. I've never seen a car without this option. I love the sporty suspension and styling.

This car really gets attention- mostly from men. Five times I have been approached and asked questions. People stare at it. It is a beautiful bright blue and looks like a small truck but it is really a very cool station wagon in disguise! Peppy 4 cyl engine gets decent mileage around 26 mpg. It is very comfortable. Roof racks have to be factory installed but running boards can be added by the dealer if desired. It has a neat glove box in the middle of the dashboard that the driver can easily reach. It is full of neat little surprises like maplights that don't shine in the drivers eyes. 5 adults can ride comfortably in the car.

Love the car including its looks and gas mileage! The color was a question mark but I've decided I really like it, too. This is the best car you've come up with since you stopped making the Cavalier and Chevelle wagons, both of which I owned and liked a lot. It is good to see a practical, modestly priced, fun car! I almost bought a PT Cruiser until I happened to see the HHR.

After reading the Edmunds HHR reviews (again), we can only shake our head and wonder why the critics are so hard on this great little vehicle! (The window control buttons are hardly a major issue to harp on). Our HHR is very road worthy, handling is excellent, mileage is 25 mpg in city driving on the 2.4 engine, the ride is incredibly comfortable and we do not miss the gas guzzling Jeep that we traded for the HHR. Dealer experience continues to be excellent. The HHR is nothing but fun to drive. We highly recommend this wonderful vehicle and applaud GM.

I love it, hauls a load. Quick, fun to drive, handles curves, turns 180's in a tight radius. Great gas mileage, unreal looks and the ability to customize and make it one of a kind is why I bought it. On the highway I can go over 450 miles before fill up, around town over 350 miles. Nice 16 gal tank and hard to get over 14.5 gal in it on a fill up. Very quiet, too easy to go fast and probably one of the best starter family vehicles on the market. I have customized mine and have won 2- 2nd place and 3 first place trophies in 6 car shows.

This has been a pretty good vehicle so far. Just had some electrical problems. The design of the rear doors is not very good. Road grime keeps the paint peeled off back there. Rides and handles very good. Fuel mileage is acceptable. Not a replacement for the minivan, if you have a few kids. Especially small children that require a child seat. One seat takes all the space. With the folding seats, you can haul quite a bit of cargo.

We test drove the PT Cruiser before buying the HHR. I would say both cars have the same power however, my husband felt the PT on acceleration was bit slower on the pickup than the HHR. The exterior of the HHR in regards to design we felt was exceptional and far more superior in body design than the PT. In addition we feel the HHR has more room than the PT as the body is longer. My husband is 6'4" and has plenty of head and body room. One of our dogs is very big and has plenty of room in the cargo area. We feel we got far more with our money and a much better buy than the PT. Very happy customers.

We love this car! The looks is what attracted us to it in the beginning, but the gas mileage is great considering I drive 80 miles a day. We have only had it for a week, so I'm still trying to get use to it (I traded in my 2002 loaded windstar) the kids (2 girls) really like the looks but miss the entertainment system that was in the van. We will add dual monitor DVD players later. I think Chevy has out done them selves this time!

I like the HHR for the size of the car which is just a smaller SUV, and the height of the seat is great since you don't have to stoop down to get in the car or pull yourself up and out of the car. I am getting great gas mileage even though I haven't put 300 miles on the car yet. I am having a problem with the lock feature....when it locks up I haven't learned how to unlock that feature without getting the owners manual out and reading it again. Yet what the book says I am not grasping so I just play with the push buttons on the lock and eventually I get the car to turn on.

This car has the look of a modern day hotrod. The chopped roof and the chrome accents inside set it apart from other mundane cars I looked at. The price is excellent for all the features and comfort. The gas mileage is great and the power is fine for a daily commuter. Unlike other reviews, I like where the window switches are, that's just one feature that makes it unique. Turns heads and my wife loves to park her gas hog to drive the HHR. Chevy hit a winner on this one!!

I recently survived a crash with my 2001 Monte Carlo and a snowplow. Although it was totalled, it gave me the opportunity to buy my HHR 2LT sooner than this summer. What a GREAT CAR! Super roomy for a guy 6'2". We thought something was wrong with it because people drive really close to us on the highway. They are just getting a better look at its sleek styling! It's sunburst orange metallic II and it glows! The 2.4L has good pickup and keeps up with the big SUV's. Great options that are standard and what a sound system from pioneer! Excellent cargo space for the size and the gas mileage is nearing 26 mpg around town. Can't wait to take a road trip this summer. It's a charm to drive!

Great Fun, Great Price

I also comfortably haul my 2 teens around. Flexibility for cargo is also great. Fuel economy after 2000 miles is better than advertised on the window sticker.

I had been waiting for this car to come out, calling the dealer every week, checking on line. I prayed my 11 year old car would hold up until then. I bought my HHR on September 9th. I was blessed that they had exactly what I wanted. Sunburst orange metallic ii, 5 speed manual, CD and cruise. I drove to Talladega for the race a few weeks later. I was getting 38.5 mpg on the highway. I get 26 to 27 mpg in the city. It has great pickup going through the gears. Vroooooom! I have had more people in or around my car, wanting to know about it. I'm sure I’ve sold a few. After seeing mine a family member bought one. You get a lot for your money, and lots of looks too.

I bought this car because I needed a bigger car than the Mirage I had prior. The HHR is soo much fun to drive and soo quiet that unless you're using cruise control you could get into trouble. The whole retro look puts the PT Cruiser to shame and is much roomier. The MPG are still low but I hope they will eventually rise to the occasion after the break in period. Overall great car for either the single party animal or a family. If you're looking for a quiet ride and lots of room then the HHR is the way to go.

Overall the HHR is a great car to own. It is fun to drive and own. The gas mileage is better then the PT Cruiser (which I also own), and the features are great for a car in its price range. The instrument panel is designed well except for the almost out of reach window buttons. The interior room is solid for the front, I'm a big man and I fit perfectly into the car, but legroom is a little tight in the rear. I would have liked to see more entertainment and other convenience features available for the LT models at least. Again overall it's more fun to drive then the PT and is very stylish while maintaining a retro look.

Extremely pleased with my HHR!

Purchased my HHR last month in spite of the "expert" reviews. One consumer review I read said to ignore the reviews and buy the car.......I agree. No "vague steering", weak braking or any of the other complaints voiced by the pros. Great fuel economy and acceptable power......I'm sure a turbo will be forthcoming. I've owned a PT Cruiser and this is far superior.......the stereo is amazing for any price vehicle. Didn't expect that/pleasant surprise. I'm a retired cop.......I've taken and taught pursuit driving courses and defensive driving classes......this car is a winner and is well worth a look if you're shopping in this price range.

Okay, here's my story. I own and operate a mobile dj service. I owned a 2002 Chevy Avalanche. Great vehicle, just became too big. Traded it in for a 2004 Mazda 6 Sportwagon. Fast and it handled like it was on rails, and oh yeah very roomy. I saw the HHR and had to have it. Gave the Mazda to my wife and traded in her Protege for the HHR. I have gone from an eight, to a six and now a four?! Believe me this HHR can scoot! I have a black 2LT with every option except OnStar. Leather, moonroof, running boards, spoiler and bright chrome package. Gas mileage is good and has a ton of room for all my equipment. I cannot wait to go cruising with the HHR and my '68 Buick Skylark this summer!

I love the design of this car. I've gone from a Venture Mini-Van to this and find it was an easy transition. The high seat enables me to easily enter and exit the car with trying to haul myself off the floor of the car. It zips around, and gets into little spaces with ease. There is plenty of room for many items and large items with the fold down seat. I haven't lost much compared to the mini-van. The back end has a shelf that you can put up and place your shopping items under and they will not be seen by the passer-by. I used this feature during my Christmas shopping and just loved it. I just love my new little HHR!

We have had our HHR for a month, and it's great! We traded our mini van because of terrible gas mileage. My husband had a PT when we got married, traded it for a Chevy Avalanche, then came the mini van! We wanted to get something with style and good gas mileage,these two things usually do not go together! But the HHR is the best of both worlds! Right now with only 700 miles we are getting around 26mpg(town & country roads),compared to 15mpg in the van. Price was great too ($14,900) LS model, which comes with many extras for a base model! Only complaint so far is the amount of storage in front area, this is a big pain! But a small price to pay for great gas mileage and great style!

I think this is a benchmark vehicle for GM. If you close your eyes get into the car and open them the car speaks import. Think no cheap feeling plastics we're so used to in GM products. And let's not gripe about location of window switches, etc. We saw those as soon as we drove the car. What I do love is the attention I get with this car--I've been driving some 30 years and I have never gotten the compliments like I do with this car. And all of my cars have been nice.

This HHR is a 2nd vehicle for us. I purchased it as an inexspensive form of transportation. I purchased a manual 5 speed shift for that reason.

This car is a blast! I downsized from an Envoy. I have had it less than a month and love the 26mpg versus 17mpg! Gas mileage will get better as we have it longer. Lots of room in the backseat. I like the height adjustments on the drivers seat. I am short and I feel taller than I would in a regular car. I get so many compliments wherever we go in it. I have a baby and can get him in and out of the vehicle easily. You have to drive one to really like it. The steering is great. I had first liked it because of the look and then drove it and that's all it took to buy! My husband is a "truck" person and he loves the HHR. We fight to drive it! Thank you, Chevrolet!

The HHR is a great little car thus far. After looking at the Matrix, Element & Forester, we decided on the HHR. The ride was smoother and the layout was more user friendly. The fuel ecomony in mixed driving is around 27 mpg! I am looking forward to seeing what the MPG will be when the engine is broken in. Chevy finally got something right.

I bought this car to replace my everyday driver. The wife liked it so much she quit driving her van, which was over twice the money, and started driving it. I don't like driving a van everyday so I traded it in on another HHR with more options, which she has now taken over and I am back to my original one. I have owned some very expensive cars in my time but I am really impressed with the quality and quanity of the HHR for the price.

I am surprised at the fast aceleration at all speeds. I have had no new car problems. The motor noise is a little loud, but that is a minor thing. I am very satisfied with the car.

I drive an '04 Nissan Murano, and she calls it my "old man's car." I must say that the few times she has allowed me to drive her loaded HHR 2LT I have been impressed, and that's saying a lot from a guy who hasn't owned an American car in 17 years. I love everything about this car. It handles beautifully, has plenty of pep and gets great gas mileage. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this car to anyone.

Initially I wanted a PT cruiser, those drive ok but the size, price, and comfort is not comparable to that of the HHR. The HHR is a better value, has better handling, has larger storage capacity, and handles in the Buffalo snow like a full size suv with 4WD. I think its the benchmark for all up and coming crossovers. I love it!

Was looking to downsize from a mid- size SUV. It had the necessary cargo capacity I was looking for with some kicking style to boot. Nice ride with adequate power. I'm not a nit-picky guy, so all the reviews I've read about inconvenient power window button location and cheap seat fabric I can live with. Being a former SUV owner, if GM wants more of us to downsize to the HHR, they have to do something about storage up front. Even with the unique dashboard compartment, storage is really lacking. Even the door pockets are the smallest I've ever seen! But obviously all the other positives outweighed this big negative, so I'm still happy I bought the car.

After searching for the HHR we wanted, we ordered a Sunburst Orange 1LT.We picked it up earlier than the projected delivery date. Love driving the sporty, retro, head turning, car. It is much more comfortable then the previous car, a Cavalier and the mileage is comparable to the Cavalier; 27/28mpg everyday driving. Would love to see what it does on a road trip. It drives great, is peppy and roomy. Hubby loves the retro Suburban design. (So do I) He has added gold metallic stripes and blue dots in the tail lights.

So far I have really enjoyed my HHR. I have had to get used to not having the power that I had in my previous vehicle but overall it is fun to drive. For a couple of hundred dollars you can change the suspension and gives a much overall better performance with lowering the springs. It has been overall great. We will see how it is for longterm dependability.

This car is exactly what we were looking for...it has the 172 HP engine, which has plenty of zip (surprisingly, I might add) for me, gets excellent gas mileage around town...about 20 MPG in Pittsburgh, don't know about the open road yet...excellent stereo...got the sunroof, remote start, heated leather seats...overall, this is probably the best AND COOLEST car I've ever owned...people still turn their heads to look...by the way, it's black with the chrome trim package.

I've only had my HHR 1LT for about two weeks, but so far I haven't found much to complain about. I do feel my HHR is somewhat underpowered (it has the 2.2L 4 cylinder engine). Most of my driving is in and around the city, so the lack of power dosen't affect me much. I am very pleased with the fit and finish and with the really comfortable front seats. I do think the power window controls could have been better placed. My gas mileage has been between 22 and 24 mpg in mostly city driving, but I haven't had my HHR long enough to evaluate whether or not this is very accurate. My overall driving and ownership experience has been very good.

Go ahead, get one!

The wife says it is "Zippy" but I like to keep the revs down and the MPG up (32 on the highway, 25 average). There are no lights in the glove box and I cannot turn on the dome light from the front. Also only one cup holder in the back & seating for 3.(!) Not near enough storage for stuff like CD's. Love having the 6disk MP3 player for *hours* of mucic. Moon roof is cool as is the little spoiler the wife had to have. Running boards get in the way when getting out though they look cool. (I think I would opt to not have them.) Very quiet ride and smoooth ride! Overall great car but needs more (better) storage solution.

This car is awesome to drive and to look at. Who could ask for more? We have the HHR 2LT and we are enjoying it to the max. First new car in 10 years and when we saw it we wanted it. Our first driving experience was a trip over the holidays and we headed north to Pa. and thru W.V. and ran into snow covered interstate and it handled terrific. The gas mileage has been in the high 30's on the road. We have not driven in town that much. This is our tripmobile and we are looking forward to our next excursuion to show our HHR off to the big guys. Go Chevy and keep up the Revolution. We would't change a thing.

Just purchased 2 weeks ago and I love this car! The 1949 Retro look and the chopped roof set off this little beauty. Good pep for a 172 HP 4 Cylinder. Over all looks inside and out satified the want for a antique car. I have a 1962 Impala I am considering selling because I have my antique car in the HHR.

I was afraid at first, now I love it!

My wife’s Trailblazer wasn't cutting it with her new found 90mi/day commute. We needed more then 18mpg. Her father works for GM so the discount came to mind. She loved the looks of the HHR and I have to say, I was a little leary at first. After a few months of ownership I must say I am more then pleased. Sure there are things that could be better, but for a car in this price range, it's tough to beat. Offers plenty of features...everything but NAV and HID's are available...plenty of room for my wife, my 2month old and me! Right now we are seeing 31mpg hwy and 27 city. Easy to monitor when our commutes are all highway miles.

I Love My HHR!!!

I had 3 Blazers previous to this purchase and I was pleasantly suprised by this car. I researched this auto online and didn't even drive one before I called my dealer and ordered a black one. I picked it up and it has been love ever since. I just hope they continue making this model because I do want another one in a few years.

I have been very inpressed and delighted with my HHR 1LT. I knew that I had to have it since I first saw one on TV last fall. I had had a 1995 Suburban for the past 10 years and loved it, but the gas mileage and size got to be a problem. The only problem that I will be addressing with the service department is a very loud 'pop' in the speakers sometimes when I start it, and sometimes the remote starter system doesn't work. I feel sure that these can be resolved. The vehicle is everyting I thought it would be.

Took three months to get delivery. Did not get to take advantage of temp price reduction because of delayed delivery-- Having said my piece on that--we are delighted by the vehicle. Took a 500 plus mile trip immediately after delivery and the car performed flawlessly and was very comfortable in ride and driveability. I ordered the Base LT1 in red and added leather seats, side air bags, rear cargo mat, OnStar, Anti-Lock brakes, fog lamps,auto tran/w/remote start.Std radio and disc are very good. It accelarates well for a 4 banger. I came down in size from '03 Ford Expedition-loaded EB 250+HP to 142HP. Yeah!!!!I like My HHR

Bad placement of the window switches. You can't put the rear seats down unless you remove the head rest first or put the front seat all the way forward. Then you can't get in the car and drive it. The rear view mirror placement is too low in the windshield creating a large blind spot.

Serene ride, comfortable driving position is giving the sensation that you are at the command of a solid vehicle. Well equipped, good sound system and lots of electronics controls, temperature, gas autonomy, oil usage, etc. Good gas mileage for the size of the car. Interior temperature warms up fast, I'm from Colorado and this is very important here more now that is winter. I did not find the windows controls far from reach, perhaps confusing as you always find them at your door side in other vehicles. Break wise, I did not find my self in a situation that demands strong breakage so far. Lot of cargo space. Easy acces. Generous rear mirrors.

I love my new HHR. I can't tell you how many "looks" it gets on the road. Mine is red and really catches the eye. Also, have had several people to stop and ask me "What kind of car is this?" I had two PT Crusiers prior to my HHR. The speed regulated steering is great for me as I am disabled and have limited use of my arms and the extra room in the back is great for hauling my mobility scooter. The power seat on the driver's side is what made the sale. I now have more room to get in and out and still able to reach the steering wheel and pedals. I highly recommend the HHR for style and accessibility.

This is a changeover vehicle for a 2005 Magnum w/Hemi that I traded in for my Sport Red Metallic HHR LT automatic. Superfluous to speak I wanted to get rid of the Gas Hog…. But this HHR has surpassed all my expectations. This HHR is totally awesome, fun to drive, eye catcher, super on gas and very peppy for a 2.2 four cylinder. I love this vehicle. There is not enough to say about it. The handling ability is fantastic! GM has done it again.

Nice quiet ride. Bought the LT with sunroof, and auto transmission. Love the auto start, and would not buy without sunroof. The light in from sunroof makes it appear larger inside. Took on trip to Norfolk, VA and at legs of trip got 33 mpg in gas mileage. Enough room for me being 5'11". If you buy one, get the one with sunroof. The 2.2l has enough power for whatever you want and the automatic gets you the auto start and door locks.

I came from a Saturn ION to the Chevy HHR and over-all this vehicle feels much more stable and solid than the Saturn did. The seating position is higher than the ION, much like a mini-ute, but the windshield is smaller and somewhat harder to see out of. I thought I would miss the center- mounted gauges in the ION but the HHR has a small gauge cluster that makes up for that.

I bought this car because I wanted something with a hatchback for carrying around the dog and our son's sports equipment, plus I wanted something that would get decent gas mileage. This car works great for both. I got the upgraded engine - 177 hp, which is zippy enough to get you around in traffic. It is quiet at high speeds (70 mph) and is responsive with it's steering. Good car for the money! I've had it for three months. No problems with anything. Good headroom - even with the sunroof. a/c works great. Backseat passengers have plenty of legroom. I've been getting 26 mpg - combo of city and highway driving, mostly city.

I was attracted to the look of the vehicle and its impressive mpg rating (30 hwy). I have been totally won over by the fun of driving, the solid feel and the attention to detail. I have received many compliments. The vehicle is surprisingly roomy. It is a little odd to have the window controls behind the floor shifter, but that is not a big deal. I purchased the 1LT version with upgrades to leather trimmed heated seats (important in Wisconsin). I also went for the 7 speaker Pioneer sound system. Coupled with the XM radio and convenient input jack for my MP3 player, this is an excellent ride.

Can hardly believe it, but Chevy definitely got it right this time. The HHR is by one of the hottest and should become one of the most customized vehicles out there. Just got my Sport Red Metallic 2LT with all the bells and whistles and I am very happy with this car. The one thing I did though was to replace the rear speakers with a better aftermarket Memphis 6.5 speaker. Much better response and sound than the factory. Waiting to see what gas mileage will be. First tank about 26.5. Second tank 29.8 with about the same roads covered. Everyone who has seen this car so far has said what a cool look and way better than the PT Cruiser. It has a much bolder stance and a beautiful retro look!!!

We've just bought our loaded 2LT this week, and I've been amazed at how many people compliment me on its looks. It drives exceptionally well, rides nicely on the Sport suspension, and is very comfortable. The engine could use a few more horses, but this is the wife's and I'm used to driving my 295 hp Z71. The automatic tranny shifts smoothly and it doesn't feel at all like the speed were cruising at. Even around town its easy to drive faster than the limit without realizing it. Roomy enough for the family, I even fit well behind the drives seat when its adjusted for me to drive (I'm 6'2" at 245lbs.) Option list is nice, the only thing we don't have is the engine block heater

I drive it every day to work and fall in love with it all over again. There is plenty of room and you do not feel squashed into a small car. The fuel mileage is what you would expect from a smaller car. I get 24 miles pr gal around town and 33 open highway. I can't say enough about this new car except....Thanks General Motors

I had a Trailblazer and was concerned about downsizing, especially in the power area. But to my surprise the HHR has all the power I need to move in and out of freeway traffic, climb steep grades and just cruise. This is a fun vehicle to drive, not to mention the looks and questions I get. Excellent gas mileage over 25 in the city and over 30 on the highway. No regrets. If the HHR is upgraded to AWD and turbo, I will be trading again!!

It's towable and moderate weight for towing. The towbar fits nicely with no body modification, just fasten the bolts onto the frame. With the seats down, it can convert to a cargo carrier. Don't have very many miles, as yet, but what I have, I'm impressed!

The new 2006 HHR is everything we'de hoped for and even more. Outside of the design or arrangement or number of cup holders, we have very little that we are displeased with. The road handling of the vehicle on a whole is terrific, as are the brakes. Chevy has done an outstanding job in the production of the HHR, although it would be nice to have seen the engine produced in USA, we are pleased with the engine. The leg room for both driver, front passenger and rear seem to be adequate. This was a great purchase, having made our decision to down size from a mini-van. The basic standard model allows its owners to personally customize, showing their own personalities, not the Chevy producers!

Very smooth quiet ride,fit and finish very good for a G.M. car, lots of cargo space, great electronics, attractive retro design, recommend the 2LT version, which has bigger engine,stiffer suspension,and other goodies such as automatic with ABS and traction control. Also recommend larger 17' wheels with performance tires and leather seating. Cons, as the New York Times point out, needs a little more power at low end and better corning performance.They also did not like the brakes,but they seem good to me. Also power windows located in an inconvient section in front of gear shift and do not light up at night making them hard to find.All and all a neat little car that is wonderful on the road!

Never owned a Chevy before buying the HHR but the looks of this caught my eye when the first "spy shots" were posted on the web. Really a great car for the money. I bought a 2LT with pretty much every available option and the car has not disappointed me at all. The acceleration is better than I anticipated and my wife loves the heated leather seats. Now we'll see how it fills the bill for tailgating this Saturday. If Chevy had just put more thought into the placement of the cupholders, spent a few dollars more on the power window switches by placing them on the door where they belong I'd have no real complaints.

Maybe every radically styled new car turns heads, but I've never been the center of attention the way I am when I drive my Sunburst Orange HHR into town. Young, old, even cops do double takes! I couldn't get out of the dealer's lot without being persuaded to give another customer a test ride around a few blocks! I got the LT with the larger 4 cyl. engine and manual 5 speed. What a blast to drive! Mixed in-town/highway milage - 29 mpg for the first quarter tank. I live at 8500 ft elevation. Takes the hills just fine. Seat comfort is exceptional. Interior is very well designed and I just love the XM radio! Side curtain bags, ABS, adjustable belt height; great safety. Homerun, Chevy!

What a great car, mine is an LT1 with the auto 2.4. So far 25 MPG city 32 HWY. This thing simply rides like a large car, smooth and quiet. I took a PT for a test drive and it's not in the same class as the HHR. Mine cost $17600 MSRP was $19500, for this price its a super car. Don't pay more than $18500 for an HHR if you do you got ripped off. The 3 dealers I went to in Omaha all dropped the MSRP by at least $1500. Sure I had to order it, but it only took 7 weeks. IMHO the $21000-$24000 HHR's are a huge waste of money.

This is the first new vehicle that I have bought since my 1987, which I still have. As far as I an concerend, it's the best one I have ever bought. Nice firm ride and not to harsh,but feels very stable on the road. Have not had one problem with the vehicle at all. The wife just loves to car and she says it's just the right size for her. All body fits are good and the paint finish is flawless. I get just about what the gas rating says. 23 city and 30 highway. It is really a fun car to drive with all the attention getting I expected. Questions from people at the grocery store, gas stations and malls. Would buy another one just for me it I had the money....

We purchase our HHR to replace a Chevy Tahoe. The vechicle has proformed nicely and we enjoy the ride. Only problem we had with our purchase was the floor mats were not with the vehicle and after about 7 weeks we got a set of mats, but they were the wrong ones. Also the drivers mat is not designed properly to protect the carpet.

Best I've ever had

I began looking on the internet at the HHR. One afternoon I thought maybe test driving one sounded pretty good. When I saw the HHR in person I instantly fell in love with her. Driving was a whole new experience. The HHR is a very smooth running vehicle with lots of comfort. Sure does turn a lot of heads. My HHR is actually fun to drive around. The dark metallic gray is an awesome color. Chevy did a super job with this one. Best move I made even though it put me in debt for a few years. Thank you Chevy, I'm a very happy HHR owner!

Awesome!

This is a replacement vehicle for a 2000 Tahoe. Needless to say I was not real sure I wanted to get rid of the Tahoe, as it was also a very awesome rig. Not too great on fuel tho. But this HHR has surpassed all my expectations by leaps and bounds. I am 67 yrs young, Tahoe had purple flames and so naturally, this HHR had to have purple flames also. I love the vehicle. I cant say enough about it. The handling ability is so great and it really gets up and goes. I think it would have beat the Tahoe!! GM has done it again.

HHR satisfied

We purchased our HHR on sight after 1st seeing it on the lot. The style & head room inside, and fuel mileage were our 1st reasons to buy. The interior is well designed. We are getting 24mpg driving in town. Recommend a rubber mat in rear to keep cargo from sliding in rear cargo area. Handling on road is very good.We have not had the option to take a long trip yet but will do so soon.

Love to drive this new model which has excellent seating, terrific storage and hauling abilities, and an excellent value package for the money. We like it so much that we're paying to add parking assists as we plan to keep it for 5-7 years! We even work for Daimler Chrysler and this Chevy beats the pants off the PT Cruiser!!

I love the vehicle, there are only 2 things that I don't like. The first is the location of the window controls, they are out of place and you have to search for them. The other is the electronic steering is a little touchy and sensitive at low speeds.

Good New Car, Fun To Drive

I love everything about my car, from the design to the looks it gets while cruising down the road. It has a smooth ride like none other, taking all surfaces as if they were glass. From the lack of wind noise, you would barely notice that you are moving, except for the fact that if you lose sight of your speedometer for more than 5 seconds, you will be travelling towards meeting your new local officer. Overall, the HHR seems to be a very well designed car.

Great Looking Car

I love driving this car. It has a smooth ride and great gas mileage. Highway mileage from 30-35 MPG. The body style is really awesome and Chev. has done a good job here with the styling. I test drove a PT Cruiser after the HHR but bought the HHR, hands down!! Chevrolet has a good reputation of quality built cars. We have always been a Chev. family.

Hooray!

I decided on the HHR after 6 weeks of research and trying lots of small and tiny wagons. I loved the look of the HHR as soon as I saw it and knew it was the right car within minutes of my test drive. The editor reviews seem to care a lot about how fast (or slowly) the HHR can take off and its engine power, but hey, I wasn't looking for a hot- rod! I'm perfectly happy with its power, and love the handling. It's not "mushy" - I know I'm driving, but the road isn't abusing me. This is a terrific family wagon that looks so, so very cool! We were concerned about it being a new model - track record, so bought an extended warranty that refunds our money if we never use it! I'm happy!

Fun - Fun - Fun !!

I've had the HHR for about a week now. I love it. Had looked at PT Cruisers, but this vehicle is beautiful. First saw her on the internet and thought it was cute. That didn't do the HHR justice. When you actually see it your heart goes thump thump. So many of my friends and family that see it automatically say they want one too. It's fun to drive and like everyone else has said it sure does turn a lot of heads. There are just so many extra things such as the remote start, controls for the radio on steering wheel, sun roof, etc. etc. I Love It I Love It I Love It!!!!!

This is the best new car I have ever owned, it is basically flawless The only flaw being the cupholder location. Other than that it is a sensible family car with room for five and their luggage also. This is as if they brought back the station wagon in a new and compact package. Has plenty of power and have been gitting 28 MPG around town with automatic transmission.

Amazingly comfortable and quiet ride. These are flying off the showroom floor in Houston, they are hard to get. The biggest challenge is finding a dealer who doesn't play games for hours about price and financing. I purchased the LT w/ the 2.4 liter engine and it has some kickin' energy for a 4 cylinder. Supply and variety seem to be the biggest issues. Its hard to find a dealership with more than a couple in stock so there is not much choice in features.

Chevy hit a home run on this one! Great fit and finish. 27mpg around town with five speed and the 2.4L 172hp. the extra $20/Mo.for 91oct gas is well worth it. Shell seems best so far!? some engine and exhaust noise for the first five to six hundred miles (break-in) smooth and quiet now. Wish the interior was as retro as the exterior but still nice.I was doing research for another PT cruser on Edmunds and saw the HHR on the comparisons page. Thanks for a great web site! Went for a test drive and put in the order. MY beagle and terrier love it because the rear windows go all the way down! Oh, ya, my wife loves it too. Time to drive the Chevy to the levee

I love my car!

I bought my wife an LT HHR with the 2.4 Liter and Automatic Transmission 2 days ago, trading in her 2003 PT Cruiser Limited. I can't believe the difference in the 2 cars. Chrysler should be very worried. If more PT owners test drive this car, there will be too many PT's on the used car market to count. Don't get me wrong, we loved the PT, but the HHR is so much more refined. The first thing I noticed was the lack of road noise. We can hear the stereo and carry on a normal conversation at highway speed! Turning radius is great, it is so much easier to park. The transmission is smoother, and the engine is more powerful. This car is so fun to drive, I find myself finding reasons to drive it.

I have had my Black HHR 2.4L 4CYL DOHC high output for a week and love it. I thought I would never own something that was not a 4WD until now. I went from 10MPG city to around 20MPG. I can't belive it. I purchased mine fully loaded, the chrome pkg makes heads turn. I have been very happy with the ride and the comfort. I took it shopping last night (for my family of 4) and because of the storage in the back had no problems. I would suggest going the extra mile and getting the entire "Perma-Plate" protection on the inside and out. I can not wait to take it to visit the family next month.....I should be a VERY nice ride!

Bigger than a Scion, more stylish than the PT Cruiser, this car gets looks from both teenagers and senior citizens. It is comfortable, practical, and drives quite nicely on the highway and back roads. More power would be nice, but for what it is, it is a good all around vehicle with excellent gas mileage. Good points: style, multiple airbags are a good idea, super radio for the money and fun to drive.....Bad points: thick windshield pillars make 10:00 and 2:00 visibility difficult, and low roof line makes tall drivers have to duck down to see traffic lights. I would buy another, and would feel my kids were well protected should they buy one.

Fun to Drive

In the quest to find a vehicle that suites both my husband and I we stumbled upon the HHR. Our original intention was to buy an Equinox or the like. The salesman suggested that we try the HHR. It was love at first drive. My husband is 6'2" and I am 5'3", we need a vehicle that can accomodate both of us. The HHR is perfect. It is one of the most comfortable cars I've ever driven. The ride is smooth and the electric steering is a breeze. We traded in our 2001 Montana and are happy campers with the HHR. Now if I can only get the hang of the shifter on the floor. I keep turning on the windsheild wipers! Small price to pay for such a fun ride. Thanks Chevrolet.

My Daytona blue HHR turns heads and gets a lot of attention. People love the looks, even though most people mistake it for a PT Cruiser. Interior is roomy and comfortable, even for a 300lb guy like me. The 4 cylinder still has plenty of zip, and the gas mileage is great. I love the car, but my only complaint is- everyone asks-"what does HHR stand for?" Most cars that use initials for a model name,the actual spelled out name is either on the car,or brochure,or,owners manual. Nowhere on my paperwork, owners manual,or anywhere, says what "HHR" means. But,I really love this car, with its retro looks, and modern technology.

The HHR is a pleasure to drive and gets great gas mileage. It’s comfortable and I love the way you have a split shelf in back layer. Heavy items on bottom and the shelf to hold bags of groceries on top. It is a real eye catcher. Wherever we go someone is looking the car over and they like what they see. We get asked a lot of questions about it. We love it

When I first saw the new HHR on Chevy's website, I loved it! Once I knew they were starting to arrive at dealers, I started looking on Chevy's site to locate the one I wanted. I finally found it, a 2LT in Sunburst Orange Metallic, gray leather, sunroof, roof rails, running boards, 17" high polished wheels, XM radio, 260 watt Pioneer premium sound w/ 6-disc in-dash changer. Sticker was $22,875... and what a package for the money!! Chevy hit a home run with this one! I've put over 1,000 miles on it within the past 2 weeks!

Plain and simple - I love this car. It is fun to drive and it looks good on the road. The base model comes standard with air, remote start and CD w/ ipod hook-up something the PT Cruiser I test drove did not. I only bring up the PT because that was the car I intended to buy. However, after test driving both cars, it was a simple choice – the HHR.

Very comfortable and fun to drive. Average mileage 27.8 mpg. Held speed with cruise on with no effort. XM radio a real treat. Runs stronger with additional miles on it.

As you can tell, this was just purchased 3 days ago, but the more I drive it, the better I like it. We are dyed in the wool GM fans (my husband has a 1967 Camaro original) but regardless, this is fantastic. We had a 2000 Tahoe which we traded in, it was great also, but this surpasses all I expected of it. Handles great, easy to drive, very comfortable for the size, as my husband is 6'3", but head room and leg room for him is great. I, on the other hand am 5'1", so the extremes are quite a challenge for any vehicle. It has much more power than I imagined it would for a 4 cyl. All in all, we love it.

After experiences with terrible rattles, squeeks and vibrations in various GM Mini-vans over the past 13 years, I was more than ready to try an import. I was looking recently and spotted an HHR at a local lot. I immediately fell in love with the styling and the price and decided to give GM ONE more chance. I'm glad I did! What a high quality vehicle! Absolutely norattles, squeeks or vibrations and very little wind noise.

I have gotten nothing but compliments about my HHR. Being a 'Car Guy', I had been looking for an old car to restore. Didn't have to. I found the old style I was looking for in a brand new (had to be black) HHR. Once I test drove it, knew that I had to have one. Was disappointed when the one I was originally looking at got sold from under me. Got the next one off the truck (literally). I heard at the dealership that a lot of PT Cruiser owners were trading in their cars for new HHR's. I don't blame them. Thank you Chevrolet for thinking a little out of the box.

I can only say that I enjoy the smooth ride the handling and the controls. I was looking for a truck and the Colorado was it... until I saw the HHR and took her out for a run. Great pickup for a small engine! The controls will take a little getting used to, but they really streamlined the doors by moving the window controls to the console area. I am so glad I took it for a ride and bought her!

I love my Avalanche, but gas prices made me turn to the HHR. I love the style and simple features, no XM radio or OnStar needed. I love it without $500 opional running boards. Drives like a dream and the sport suspension just screams to run the windy roads. Reminds me of an Escort GT I owned. Wanted the orange, but could not find one so went with a black just off the truck. Will be taking it on three 2000 mile round trips to FL this year and can not wait to get on the highway. So far it runs like a dream. Put flames on it first day and people always stop to look at it. Get out of the way PT

I have owned my HHR for two weeks now. It rides great, drives easy, is comfortable. I am getting great gas mileage in town (22mpg). The ride is quiet, good stereo. The storage and cargo space is nice. Chevy really hit a good one here, and it's nice to see them going back to some old school stuff. This should work out well for them. This vehicle is hard to get right now, the dealership I bought mine at, can't keep them in stock.

Admittedly, My wife and I have had this vehicle for less than a week, but she fell in love with it the minute she saw it. And I started appreciating it when I drove it and realized how truly comfortable and spacious it is, given its size, coupled with its affordable price and standard equipment. Ours is the 1LT with the larger 2.4L DOHC engine. It handles great and the gas mileage should far exceed the Trailblazer we traded (and both hated to part with) Chevy did it right this time. The ride is stable and quiet and it is fun to drive. It also has plenty of pick up for what we'll need it for. It does turn heads.

It does not have enough horsepower. When moving from a dead stop it feels like you really have to push the gas pedal hard, but is adequate on the highway for passing. The engine has whirring noise when taking off from dead stop that is very noticble. Seat belt hookup with the arm rests down is difficult. Handles very well.

We got the LT1, 2.4, auto, XM radio, moonroof, chrome package, in red about a week ago. When I saw my fiance's grin on the test drive (after test driving a PT turbo, by the way), I knew we would get it. After a week and 500 miles, we are in love with our HHR. We look for reasons to drive it (we commute in my company vehicle - darn). The car is a blast to drive, the visibility is great, we're both comfortable (I'm 6- foot, 240), and I can't believe the storage space for a small car. If you like to blend in, don't get an HHR. If you like to have fun, get good gas mileage, haul stuff (mountain bike, musical equipment, photography equipment, etc.), and turn a few heads, go check this car out.

Just Got My HHR as a Compnay Car!

So far so good I have had the HHR for just over a week, I also own a TB and an Envoy. I love it -surprised at the power from a 4 cyl. Also like the ride and it's not noisy like most small vehicles you get so much for the price I would recommend to all at any age.

This is a great new car model from GM. It has almost every option as standard equipment. It appears to be a very high quality vehicle and should give me many years of pleasure. I am 62 years old!

My HHR is black with the chrome grill, sunroof, XM-radio. I have enjoyed this car so much that when it is parked outside my business, people have come inside inquiring about it. Its that cute when you see it first hand. There is plenty of room inside. It handles great on the road and has a lot of power. I was quite surprised since I am used to driving a V-8. Its easier on the pocketbook when you have to purchase gas, especially these days. I am getting right at 20 miles in town, but the engine is not broke in yet and I am driving it in 100 + degree temperatures. Mine came equipted with a Pioneer sound system/equilizer and has more sound than I know what to do with. Love my 06 HHR.

Great vehicle in every aspect. Best of all, gas mileage. I went from a V-8 Tahoe getting 17 Hwy, I now get 31 Hwy! Can't go wrong!! Very, very stylish. Almost bought a PT Cruiser before I saw the HHR in a showroom. I snatched the second of only two HHRs on the lot! What a tremendous value for the price! I didn't have to sacrifice looks, performance, gas mileage or quality! Of course its smaller than my Tahoe, but its pretty roomy for what I need. Good luck getting one. I think they'll sell like hotcakes! Hats off to you GM! You made my year in these times of the terrible gas price hike!

I have had my HHR only a week and love it. The handling is superb LT 2 options 2.4 engine automatic. First tank gas fillup produced 30.5 MPG mostly around town garage sales etc. Will be putting road miles on the car in November when we return to Florida for the winter. No negitive comments other than the door lock buttons have a tendency to poke into your arms when you put your arm on window sill with window open.

I was worried about the power or lack of according to the car mag reviews, but it is more than enough unless your pulling away from pit lane. On the freeway the HHR rides very smooth, we traded a Chysler Concord with about an equal ride, impressive for a little car. Handling is really good, as ours does have the tighter suspension option. At the grocery store the wife only has good things to say about the storage. The sound system is killer! A lot of thought went into consideration of controls and driver layout. Engine compartment is a nice package with all the lastest veriable valve timing (read no real need for preminum fuel)

Wow - Get one

Stop looking any further- you'll only be going back to the HHR and may find it was sold. We were shopping at 2 stores and then at some "foreign" places. The HHR is more functional and a better value. The are selling fast- we lost one because we wanted to shop around then had to wait a week for another to come in. We got one with the bigger engine and love it. Peppy, quiet, safe, sturdy, super mileage!

Oh yeah!!

I have had my HHR for about a week now and have put over 500 miles on it. It is great. The ride is smooth and it handles like a charm. The interior is comfortable even for a big guy like me. It has side air bags front and back, which is a great feature.

I went from a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor AWD to the smaller HHR and was unsure that I could adjust to the smaller size and style, but I was wrong. This is a fantastic little vehicle. Snappy, quick response, with a great array of electronic features. I'm getting about 28 miles per gallon in city and 33 hwy. It's made well, with solid construction and plenty of room for a smaller wagon style. Plus the styling blows away the PT Cruiser! Recommend to all that are looking for a really neat roomy concept style vehicle!

Been waiting for six months to purchase. Only driven 400 miles so far ,but very happy with the whole package. Traded a Focus. The HRR has more power and is very comfortable. Styling is great, and I like it much more than the PT Cruiser. (Wife has one and I have driven both)

Love my HHR

I just bought the HHR and it has a lot of nice standard options. It is a head turner. It gets very good gas mileage and drives like a charm. Fenders and doors line up very well which are important qualities to me. Paint job is excellent. Can't find anything wrong with it thus far.

It's so quiet and smooth, I sometimes forget how fast I'm going. After driving it and the 2005 Matrix, there was no comparing the ride. It's also much more comfortable and stylish. It has more room in the front, and a nicely flexible cargo space. I was afraid it would be a lot larger in length, but it's only longer by 5 inches. The HHR is the car for me

The vehicle is a lot of fun. Love the looks and the questions as to what vehicle it is. It does get confused with the PT Cruiser however, the room inside is spacious, the engine very peppy and the number of accessories is super. Really enjoy the performance of the vehicle. It handles the road very well. Extremely happy with the quality. Everything fits nice and there are no rattles or wind noises. It has an excellent fit to finish feel.

Very pleased with this sport wagon

The day I saw this vehicle, I called my wife. Within hours we knew this was the one for us. For a small car, it's amazingly big in size and attitude. The ride is far beyond what you'd expect, and it's creature comforts are the best in its class. Even though it only has a 4 cylinder engine, it's got plenty of pick up and go. I tested 0 to 60 in about 9 seconds, so it's just as fast as needed for what we'll use it for. The steering is light and responsive, which is great for us since my wife will be driving it on a long commute once a week. Highway ride is awesome, quiet and smooth. We love the drive by wire feel. It is so fun to drive we can't seem to find enough errands to run.

It has been so many years since I have enjoyed the fun of driving. This vehicle took me back to my first driving experiences and made me feel like a kid again! It rides well, has enough power (is there ever enough?), and the grin factor is unbelievable. I actually did a cruise the first weekend we had it. The price makes it affordable, the gas mileage as painless as it's going to get, and enough room and comfort to last the whole week. Chevrolet hit a homerun on the first swing at bat!

HHR is the hot, hot roadster that Chevy just came out with and the vehicle I have been waiting for!! Awesome drive and awesome looks combined with great gas economy and I think I made a great purchase. Oh, I almost forgot, the vehicle only cost me $16,900....scary! Only negative was there were only 2 to choose from!! Luckily, black was one of the colors I was OK with. Awesome truck!

I've had my HHR for a few days and put a couple hundred miles on it so far. I just got back from 6 hours of driving around in Phoenix traffic, and I'm pretty happy. The ride is fairly smooth, the seats are comfortable, and the stock sound system is great when playing CD's and okay on radio, but the antenna seems weak. It's got enough power to safely merge into Phoenix freeway traffic, not an easy feat as the average in town speed is somewhere around 80 - 85 mph. It's no racecar, but it is peppy and fun to drive. I also enjoy all the stares from people trying to figure out if it's a PT Cruiser or what? If the Phoenix market is any indicator, the HHR is gonna be a hot seller.

Our inital reaction is one of total satisfaction. Performance and economy are much better than even we expected. Avg after 2 tanks of fuel is 27mpg, and we have avg'd 40mpg on the highway twice! The design while similar to the PT is different enough that it turns people's heads. Ride quality is excellent, and exterior noise is virtually non existent inside. I recommend taking one home for a 24 hour test drive. If this is the size vehicle you're looking for, you'll never want to take it back to the dealer.

I bought the HHR right after it hit the showroom floor. LS with 2.2L 5 speed, side airbags and ABS. The ride is outstanding and I cannot believe how well this car/truck is put together. The ride is quiet, 2.2l accelerates quite well, and it holds speed on hills, all while returning 30 MPG. Handles great on interstate and is very stable at our 70 MPH speed limits in TX. I currently have around 1700 miles on the car. If the HHR is an indication of the type of vehicle that GM will be building, then their market share should definetly turn around. Engineeing overruled the bean counters on this one.

Just picked up our new HHR LT2 to replace the PT. The PT was nice but this car has more room, is quieter, handles better on highway and turns on a dime. Wanted white but due to color ordering on first units ordered light grey. Cars looks very rich!Way to go GM! Now we need a new truck!

I have waited on the HHR !! The dealer got this on Tuesday pm, I saw on Wednesday am and the rest is history. Everywhere I went this vehicle drew stares, smiles, and looks of wow! I had people with a lot of smiles and thumbs up. This is an awesome little ride. The 2.2L has plenty of pep on the freeway and great fuel economy. I have only driven 250 miles but it is on the mark at 30 mpg. For the money it is a great value and is loaded with much more than I was expecting. Don't miss this one, it is one of the best retro designs yet.
