2008 Chevrolet HHR SS 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I just bought this car last week, SS models are hard to come by. I have to say I am glad I didn't get the 2lt, this thing blows away the other HHRs I test drove. I have the automatic so there's less HP but the design and features on this thing are second to none. No turbo lag and this thing hugs corners as well as my 2000 Trans AM WS6! Definitely a good family car with a very sporty edge! Two tone interior is nice. Extra options I bought: 7speaker pioneer system, sunroof, XM radio, and other cool stuff. Definitely get the SS!
The smooth stiff performance suspension, and the power. You have a lot of power on command when you need it. Two tone ultralux inserts look sharp!
Basically some of the plastic in the interior seems kinda cheap, but driving this thing more than makes up for it.
