I owned a VW Passat wagon.
I was getting 26-28 MPG on the highway.
A friend told me about the HHR and that I would receive better gas mileage.
I traded for the HHR and got between 24 and 26 MPG.
Very disappointing to say the least!
Also the space in the back with the seat down is probably around 12 cubic feet smaller than the Passat.
Another great disappointment.
The interior uses a lot of cheap plastics and the window switches are on the center console.
I have owned the car for 2 years and I still have to look for the switches every time I go to use them.
I do like the storage space under the back floor, but what I would like more would be a deeper well in the back for hauling tools and stuff.
I find that the stuff I store in the storage space is stuff I almost never use.
I think Chevy should really consider redesigning the entire interior to make it more spacious, solid and more user friendly.
