The 2006 HHR LT has a smooth ride and is comfortable for driver and passenger on long freeway trips. We have leather with electric driver seat. Seat heaters are nice in winter, even in So. Cal. Ours needed a $1,100 oil cooler repair at 70,000 miles. Stereo works well. Odd placement of cup holders and window controls.
Looks from the street, stereo, smooth ride.
Ride got less smooth at 15,000 miles. Michelin tires helped. But it was never as nice as when new. Normal window controls. More ground clearance -- it's very low. Premium wheels still not so great looking.
