"I purchased a 07 HHR used about 4 years ago. I was a little skeptical at first due to the poor quality reviews posted on line. However, I have been really pleased with it being trouble free. I average 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The seats a comfortable both front & back. I've had it packed from floor to ceiling halling kids to college. My only complaint is that it isn't the easiest car to work on. Changing a headlight challenges your flexibility and changing the air filter makes you long for the days when the filter sat in a pan on top of the carb and all you had to do was spin the wing nut and take the lid off. Great little car! Very happy with it."

"For a small engine this car has a lot of power. Flex fuel option would be nice but none of the stations offer it. Only one recall for the ignition. Overall very happy with this car."

"My wife and I both owned 2006 HHRs that we purchased new. Both are still in the family. My daughter owns by sunburst orange LT2 (leather, chrome 18" wheels, running boards, 5 speed.) and my son is about to get my wife's purple LT1 5-speed. Hers has the multiple disc changer and premium audio. Both cars run well after eight years and 140k plus. They remind me of my 69 Beetle and 84 Cavalier. Reliable and trouble free as the day is long. Turn them on, drive them, and forget it. HHR is very useful and comfortable to drive as well. Fun and unique. Economical as well, at over 30 mpg for my wife and 25 mpg for me."

"We bought new in 2007 and are getting ready to trade it for a Captiva Sport. Wife loves it because it is small and easy to drive and park. Don't know why Chevy quit building them. The get a good product then discontinue it. Also owned the Caprice's best full size ever. LT 350, 130 mph and 26 mpg. Anyway, car only has 54000 which is extremely low miles for the age. 6750 per year. I would have bought a newer used one but hard to find."
