A BASIC hhr with a 5spd and a2.2, no traction control, no abs just a plain maroon colored 4door fun car that runs on reg. Gas and gives me a true 30 mpg in the city. Replaced oil with full synthetic and a k&n air filter. Bought it new right off the truck, has 16,000 miles and one visit to the dealer. The hhr has done exactly what I want. It handles great at 75 mph with no wavering behind the big rigs. The steering is sharp and precise however the torque steer is a brute. Behind the driver the available space is amazing. The build quality is on the hi side of good and the paint job was excellent. Overall I'm pleased and oh yes I drive it hard and fast no slakkin in the sun. Gas, clutch, gone.
overall size, shape and exterior visual iimpact.exterior layout is very inviting to be customized.e.g.the panel van
cup holders are a real pain especially with a stick shift. no tie down rings on the rear deck gate. not enough bling yet for this vehicle. take the 4 wheel drive from toyota matrix and drop it in the hhr.
