Great for young families. Love it.

2008 Chevrolet HHR LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
My HHR is an LS with manual transmission. It's comfortable, fun to drive, smooth ride, and with the manual transmission the acceleration is much better than the automatic. I test drove the automatic and thought it was sluggish. My manual is not sluggish. I'm surprised and impressed with the car. It's roomier than I thought it would be. I have a young family and a tight budget, the HHR is big enough for rear facing car seats and front passengers. It's a hard quality to find in affordable cars.
The seats. They are the standard base model seats, but they are suprisingly comfortable. Also, I'm new to driving a manual and it is cake.
Visibility is slightly limited. I think larger windows would help, but that is a style redesign therefore a little unreasonable.
