Great little car

2007 Chevrolet HHR LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
Very easy to get in & out of - I'm 6'. Has been great in a MN winter. Handling is excellent. Corners like a dream. Has plenty of power. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed driving a stick. Has a lot more room inside than you'd think at first glance. Fuel economy according to display has been as high as 34+. During winter it dropped to 29+. Perhaps the best designed vehicle I've had in 20 years. I checked the options & decided standard had everything I wanted. Plus, it's "cool" - it will turn some heads.
Interior room, handling, fuel economy.
Could use one more gear. The power range seems to be between 2,000 - 3,000 rpm's. At freeway speeds it generally is around 2,900. Fuel economy suffers a bit as a result. One more gear would help.
