I really enjoy our HHR. My husband and I bought it as a company car for a painting business. It is really roomy (front and back seats) and the plastic in the way back makes messes really easy to clean up rather than cloth. The speaker system has good clear sound. It drives well in snow, much better than my little car. I really like how it tells the tire pressure in the electronic information view. The GAS MILEAGE is great!!! On average we have been getting 26 - 29 mpg! It is a champ and we will never get rid of it.
I have always had an SUV and other large Ford vehicles in the past. I did not want a car nor did I want another SUV. This HHR1 that I bought this summer gives me more room and mileage per gallon than I could ever imagine. I am 6'4", my wife is 5'9", and my youngest child is 5'11", so we needed room and lots of it. I can honestly say that either one of us can sit in the back with room to spare while the other drives. We have got compliments on the style and color (Deep Red). I would and have recommended this car to my family members and others. Keep up the great work.
We did not expect to leave the dealership with the HHR, but it seemed a good fit for my family and drove smoothly. My husband is tall, but all torso, and he fit well with enough headroom. The radio and speaker system is good quality with good sound. The trunk is good sized but there is no real place to "hide" things from outside viewers, I also recommend a cargo net or basket as the trunk is so large bags roll around. We have yet to haul anything large but I am sure we could without a problem. We also get good gas mileage,mostly slightly above the manufacturers specs. The issues, My husband is tall and sometimes if we are the first in line at a light, he has to stoop to see the light. He would also like a bit more knee space. The passenger seat does not move up and down which is difficult if he sits in the passenger seat. My complaint is the cup holders..their position is super awkward, especially if we both have large drinks. I know it is a bit petty but it really gets on my nerves. Overall I love my car. I would recommend it for others.
