Pros: "easy to get around in; great turning ratius & mpg"

Cons: "Suspension, struts, bushings, etc. (just ours ?)"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Despite the HHR's bad publicity of late, this car provides everything a person needs for getting around. Easy to drive, sits up high, great gas millage, you can put allot of cargo into such a small vehicle & accommodates 4 adults with plenty of leg room. It has had some maintenance issues but we bought ours used. It was 1 year old but had 29,000 miles on it. We had to replace all 4 struts (shocks), both front door latches, 3 outside door handles, a pinched wire harness, and the ignition switch (under recall). However the engine & transmition have performed excellent. It's only a 4 cylinder, but on the freeway & streets it accelerates quickly & keeps up with traffic at 75-80mpg with no problem. Presently it is 7 years old with only 73000 miles on it, so you can see we don't drive it very far; mainly just in town as we don't travel much any more. I think this car would make a good in town commuter car."

Cons: "No seat heaters with cloth seats."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"In eight years and 140,000 the vehicle has been there all the time every time for what ever was needed. Hauling stuff, people, commuting, or long trips. The HHR did it all and did it well with very good economy (unbelievable, actually). And it is fun to drive."

Pros: "good price, good to drive, dependable."

Cons: "Blind spots, just have to turn head to pass."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have had this car for 8 years, and have about $150,000 on it. I just replaced the original clutch and fly wheel. Every oil change and tire rotation has been done... did the front and rear brakes, and the struts over time. With front wheel drive, the car has done well in snow. The heated seats make a difference in winter. The car has been a dependable car. It does have blind spots so I have to turn my head to over take and pass.... but that makes my driving even safer. I think this car has lots more good driving in it. Most of my driving has been highway."

Pros: "The 2.4 is only way 2 go. LT2 package."

Cons: "Having to park far away to avoid dings"

"This car has awesome pickup, I won't hesitate passing somebody on a 2 lane rd. Load capacity is unbelievable, when the seats are down. Couldn't believe how nice it handles and the smooth ride. I heard that some parts are off an S-10, that's hard to believe. I get comments on it everywhere I go, now I have the fever to find a well kept bright orange SS model."

"Although there are two current recalls out on this model, it hasn't given me a lick of trouble in over 4 years and 59,000 miles. Only maintenance has been new tires, front brakes, and oil changes. Great for hauling with the hatchback and fold-down seats. Good gas mileage (over 25 mpg combined city/highway)."
