I had admired the HHR for some time and finally took the plunge. It's a great car with everything you could want. Styling is exceptional, it's fun to drive, it's comfortable with great mileage. When I test drove the vehicle I have to admit I felt a bit claustrophobic what with the huge windshield pillars and dark tinted glass but soon got used to it. The large mirrors compensate quite well for any blind spots. My only complaints are the front brake rotors are too light for the car and front end needed work at 29,000 miles (which the dealer performed under warranty). Overall, I am thrilled with the car.
Styling, mileage, information center. Car came standard with many nice features which left my old Ford Taurus seeming to be lacking in creature comforts.
Front seat area is a bit busy between the seats because of cupholders, armrests, seatbelts. There doesn't seem to be anyplace to place belongings.
