I have own my 2008 HHR SS automatic almost two years and unlike the one person claims, I have never seen any oil spots from the HHR. The only problem I have had with it is the tire monitor on the driver's side front does not work at times. I use the HHR mostly for going to/from work, therefore I only get about 23 mpg (which is far better than the 13 mpg the Tahoe it replaced got) on the highway it gets over 30. If I am doing 20 mph and step on it the wheels will spin, which I would expect on a light vehicle with over 250 HP. For the price, it is a great compromise between HP and MPG. My SS has been better than I expected. It is quick, but well mannered, not the brute force that my Mustang GT is. Take a SS for test drive and I am sure you will agree that the 2.0 Turbo has the power it needs along good gas mileage.

I am disabled from a stroke and unable to get in most cars without help. the HHR is low enough withplenty of head room and door opens wide enough for me to lift my affected leg into and with a seven inch seatbelt extender I can fasten the belt witout help.
As you might say just what the doctor ordered. thankyou Chevrolet and car max for filling my needs.

I did a lot of research on small SUV's before I bought my HHR, and when I saw a picture of it in my finalists, it was love at first sight! The retro design makes me smile every time I get into it. I was a little concerned about the smaller engine, as I drive the expressway to work everyday, but it has plenty of get up and go and a great smooth ride. Also, I get much better gas mileage than I was getting previously. It has plenty of room to carry all the plants and landscape supplies that I buy. The only crunch is the result of having three bulky car seats side-by-side in the back seat, but my granddaughters love it too.
