2008 Chevrolet HHR LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I still really enjoy this car after driving it for about 6 months. I've had no problems at all and have noticed quite a few more on the roads lately. The gas mileage isn't quite what I was hoping for - only about 22 mpg, doing almost all city driving - but I can still go 2-3 weeks between fill-ups. I'm still very happy with the LS model, it may not be as fast or as stylish as the LT or SS models, but for just driving back and forth to work and around town it works perfectly.
I really like the cargo space when the rear seat is folded down. There are also a couple of extra little cargo spaces built into the rear area that I just recently discovered. They aren't huge, but are a good place to store an emergency blanket, flashlight, etc.
My biggest complaint is the lack of storage area in the front. The glove box built in the dash is awkward at best and the little space under the radio is pretty much useless. Another console area for storage, especially for CD's, would be a nice addition.
