I was looking for a vehicle that had most of the room of my Saturn Vue, and a style that would excite me. The HHR is perfect. It has a sporty feel, accommodates the weekend chores, and is generally fun to drive. I knew what I was buying so I have no complaints about the limited view or the cupholders. The first thing my passengers and I noted is that it's a solid car feel. I plan to enjoy my new toy!
The XM radio (maybe I'll keep it). The 5 speed, shift transmission (after all it is retro!) The styling!! The lay flat rear seat.
Cup Holders (don't like food and drink in my new car anyway).
