We were going to purchase a new HHR but the local dealer was less than helpful so I saw this SRX advertised and it was about the same price as the Chevy. My wife fell in love with it and it is one of the most solid cars that I have owned. Very quiet and smooth on the highway, but also responsive around town. We couldn't be more pleased with the car.
It is very solid to drive. No rattles or squeaks [it has 49k on it] and everything works like new. Love the presets for drivers 1 and 2. My wife is 5'2" and I am 5' 10". It is nice to use my remote or key and have the seat where I don't crack my knee getting in the car.
Leave out the center headrest on the middle seats as it blocks rear vision. I have left mine in the garage.
