2009 Chevrolet HHRmroldhippie - Laurel, MD.09/14/2010
This is an excellent automobile. Easy to get around town with and easy to handle. Took a road trip to California and back from Maryland and averaged 31 mpg.
2009 Chevrolet HHRLyle - NE Illinois09/28/2010
I bought this vehicle used with almost 32K miles on it, but I feel as though I am driving a new one. The gas mileage has been at the top of the range - I am averaging just over 30 mpg with the 4-cylinder engine. Performance is adequate, on par for a crossover with a 4-cylinder. Fit and finish is very good.
I love the information display. It has a lot of information available in real time at my fingertips - total mileage, average mpg, instantaneous mpg, tire pressure x 4 tires, coolant temperature, two trip odometer settings, and outside temperature.
One of my few compaints is with the location of the cup holders in the front. They are a little hard to get to, especially with the driver's and passenger's arm rests in the down position.
This is a minor issue in a vehicle that I am liking very much. I would recommend the HHR.
2009 Chevrolet HHRAdz - Wichita. Kansas03/27/2011
I really like the HHR. It isn't a hot rod but it is quick and responsive. Very fun to drive. Ideal for around town. The lack of horsepower only shows at highway speeds when accelerating. Firm suspension with the typical ride for a short wheelbase vehicle.
The interior is very comfortable, seats are firm and there is plenty of head, seat and leg room. There are two things I don't like; one is the cup holders, necessarily low between the seats is awkward and will never hold a Route 44 without a mess trying to retrieve it. The worst feature is visibility, corner post wide enough to handle the airbags are vision restrictive despite the large looking windshield you have to duck down if you are the first one at a stop light.
The rear cargo area is just right for trips to the store and has an amazing amount of storage under the cargo 'floor'. Which, by the way can be moved to hide your items.
What I liked the most was the affordability, reasonable insurance rates, not the best mileage on the planet but acceptable, and bowtie custom parts are great. It looks quite stylish with the new mag wheels and black chrome grill and trim pieces.
