2008 Chevrolet HHR SS 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Only have about 2000 miles so far, but that includes a couple of nice road trips. The first trip was all 2- lane roads of wildly varying altitudes, and lots of corners. The car is very confidence inspiring, with excellent grip, and crisp steering response. I was a bit surprised at this, due to the electric power steering, but hey, it's just my opinion. Maybe the only handling negative is the amount of corner lean when pressing, but considering the car's mission in life, not at all surprising. Averaged about 24.5 mpg in fairly brisk driving. The second trip was 90% freeway, using cruise control.I averaged 28.5 mpg over two tanks with average speeds of 75 mph.

Favorite Features

I like the styling of the exterior the best. Great utility in the interior.

Suggested Improvements

Needs more headroom. I have to duck down to see traffic lights, and my head bumps the sunroof edge. I'm only 6'2". It's called "Heritage High Roof", right? One touch driver's side, open only? Should be both fronts, and both directions. Steering wheel controls are pretty small;especially the volume
