2008 Chevrolet HHR LS 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


I was drawn to the HHR by its combination small-ish size but generous cargo space. I read the reviews, pro and con, and took a test drive. Initially, I wasn't hooked. The test drive was in a loaded LT, which made the car too costly and too gadget-laden to make me leery of potentially costly repairs. My interest in the car held, however, and a year later I test drove an LS with essentially just ABS and side airbags as options (std on the '09s). I liked it. Bought it. Have been driving it for 6 months and still am happy. Very comfortable. Handles well. Lots of fun to drive. Took about a week to adjust to the short windshield and "blind" spots, but no big deal.

Best Features

Fun to drive and maneuvers quick. You sit a bit higher than in a car, so good visibility.

Worst Features

As others have said, change cupholder placement and add about 2" more windshield at the top. The center PW buttons are no big deal for me.
