I have my 09 HHR now for three months and have to say I really enjoy driving the car. Is it powerful- of course not, it is a 2.2 four cylinder engine. Is it adequate- yes. However there is a mystique about the car that I cannot fully explain except that I love to look at it and really enjoy driving it. It is fun, not luxury, and luxury is overrated! If you want to break away from status symbol land and just drive a fun car, you will be glad you picked this one.
