I purchased this car in February of 2008 and have put almost 30K miles on it since (it is now November 2008). There have been no major issues with the exception of the Air Conditioning drain tube clogging up. This was easily fixed by the dealer and I was on my way in no time. The gas mileage on this car is awesome! I am in sales, so there is a lot of stop and go driving and leaving my car running for long periods of time outside of my customers. With all of that, I am still getting approx 27 miles per gallon! When I am driving on the highway only, the mileage gets up to 35 or more miles per gallon! Awesome! This car looks great outside and feels great inside. I am a big man (over 6' tall and approx 240lbs) and I am as comfortable in this car as I would be in an SUV, I love it. Who needs a bigger crossover or SUV when this car is just as roomy? This car looks great, performs great, maintenance is very low, and best of all...it won't break the bank.
I got this car as a surprise from my husband and was initially ready to divorce him. However, this little car has power, personality, is fun to drive and carries all my stuff! I went from driving a large customized van, but to cut on gas expenses, got this HHR and I am having a blast at 40+ years old! I haul dogs, kids, have driven it up and down I-95 and it hangs with all the luxury money cars on the highway, except I get 34 plus mpg!! I have fallen in love with this car and I feel "cool" driving it, sorta gangsta in a 2007 sort of way! Best car for the money, gas mileage, and fun..handles amazingly well!!
I love this vehical. I bought it used in Chicago, handled great in the snow and bad weather. A great drive, very useful vehical for my family and hauling stuff. The car really has pep for driving on the highway. Gas milage is great, avg about 26 in the city, but when out on the highway with cruise control on avg 40 mpg. I now live in Charleston, SC and it is a great car to get around in the South, AC blows cold and handles the hot weather like a champ. The one bad thing I will say is the interior is a little cheap. A lot of hard plastic and the fabric on the seats is a little rough. But over all LOVE, LOVE, this vehical. Specs: 2006 LT2 17" rims 5 speed manuel
