"Been very good. Easy to drive. Love extra cargo in back. View a little obstructed in front. Didn't like rims that came with package. Good on gas. Fold down seats scratch easily on hard plastic side, able to pull my small boat :)"

"My son had bought an HHR and I fell in love with his car. When I was able to buy a "new" car it was 2012. I wanted the HHR but 2011 was the last year they were made. I had to search for this car, I wanted the bright red model. I finally found one and I could afford to buy it. So I bought it and have been driving it for 2 years now and I am still in love with the car. I would buy a new one if I could. I know about 10 people with an HHR and they all love the car."

"Most, if not all of the monthly ONSTAR reports are available. There are two recalls that are currently waiting for parts. One is the ignition - and I have never had anything on the key-ring except a string and the ignition key. The other is an air-bag. No scratches or dents. It's been in a car-port when at home and not being driven."

"got this car because I read it had a great safety rating, several people who have had accidents, walked away unscathed. I have two small children, and safety is very important to me. I had a bit of an accident myself in it, and it handled very nicely, wasn't damaged as much as I thought it would be, and I am my passengers were just a little shaken up, but otherwise fine. I still own the car and have made two long distance trips, one over 1600 miles... did very well, and well on gas mileage. If they still manufactured this car, I would likely buy another. My only quam, I have two carseats in the back and there is no room for anyone else back there, but its not an error on their part as I see it, I just might need a bigger vehicle, ha ha ha. Its a good car/truck... crossover or whatever they call it. My advice, don't get black (mine is) it like any other car, will only stay clean till you drive it. I guess you could get one with running boards, and some mud flaps and it would be better. Just a suggestion though."

"I Traded i my 2002 Grand Prix GTP for this car in 2008 and i couldn't have made a better decision. This car is extremely quick, fun to drive, and can still fit everything i need in the back. I have had absolutely no problems other then 1 abs sensor going bad (expected after 100K). Still running like a champ with a few minor upgrades. I have ultra high performance summer tires, the state 3 GM tuning, Upgraded turbocharger, K&N air intake, Dual tone magna-flow exhaust with true dual pipes, and a computer chip (all adding around 125-150Hp). This car is a family sedan that is literally prepared for the track right off the showroom floor."

"I purchased my HHR used and have added an additional 80,000 miles to the original purchase mileage. I drive all over Northern California as part of my job. This car does not fatigue me when driving. The AC is cold, cruise control keeps me away from tickets, the seats are comfortable, and at 6 feet tall I have room to spare! I get an average of 27 mpg and have been as high as 32 mpg when travelling cross country. I have replaced the fuel pump and front rotors since I have had this car. Even when the check engine light came on to warn me of the fuel pump problem, I was able to still drive it to the shop for repairs. In other words, I have not been stranded on the roadside to date. In my opinion, this is one of GM's best little cars!"
