I"ve owned this 2007 for 7 months. I love the handling. It has a tight turning circle and not much lean in the turns. Performance is ok for 4 cylinders and I get around 27-29 mpg in town more toward 27 with the A/C going. I did 32 MPG on a trip. There is room for plenty of luggage in the cargo area and even more with the rear seat folded down. The 6 way drivers seat is comfortable and the lumbar adjustment really helps. The interior takes some getting used to. The window controls are on the console. I guess it saved money but it makes for confusion especially when you drive several vehicles. There is no conventional dome light. The rear view mirror has two down-facing lights but they don't help much with things in your lap or the floor. There is no center storage, just two cup holders that are limited in cup height by the emergency brake lever. The Speedometer is readable but a bit small. The narrow spacing means it doesn't have to move far for a 10 MPH change. However the cruise control is rock solid. The door lock button location is a problem. It's on the window trim, like the vintage cars, and with the high placement of the window, eveytime you access an ATM or go through a drive through that button jams into your bicep. I'll have to find an after market button that sets flat when locked or just remove it. The tailgate lift cartriges are so strong that it's hard to close the tailgate in one motion. It takes a forceful throw to latch it. If you're carring an umbrella in the rain forget it. The remote start is great. It lets you give it that little warm up before you jump in and go. Speaking of warm up, this car comes up to temp fast. Theres no freezing your rear off half way to work, it's really nice. The heating and A/C works well but you can't turn off the A/C when in the recirculate mode. The turn signals tend not to cancel when you complete your turn unless you remember to turn it back a little extra. I like the car but wish they had done a better job around the cockpit.

i bought this car in 07' w/ 4000 miles. It has never given me any problems whatsoever. I frequently drive it to San Diego, Ca., and I average 80 mph. fuel eff. is excellent, ( avg. 25 mpg local). It also holds a lot of cargo and retains vigor. One of my better decisions in this life.

I would have picked this car out of the whole car lot, even over the new cars. The appearance is exactly what I wanted. It's important that I can fit dog crates and other supplies for events in the back, and there is as much room as an SUV. The pick-up and gas mileage are okay, though could be better, but it handles well and is comfortable. I've only had it a short time so I can't speak for reliability, but so far I love this car!

The HHR is good car. Needed some getting use to because the windshield is rather small. Love the sunroof and the automatic car start on the remote key pad. I bought this car with a lot of miles on it but it is still working well. Rides like a 4 cylinder and gets good mileage. Good space inside even though I am 6'4''. Love all the features on the dash. Would recommend this car to others.

A faithful companion

Purchased to replace a slowly failing Chevy Van this little truck-let has proved a faithful companion. Highway mileage averages out to 34 with around town mileage coming in at 28. So far only routine service has been required, just the usual oil changes and tire rotations. The remote start has proved invaluable in the hot Carolina summer, just poke a button and cool down the truck. Performance is above average and the 2.2 liter engine is willing to rev its mind out when needed. I thought I'd miss the room of a full size van, but I haven't been able to over stuff the HHR yet. The only little niggle that took getting used to were the window switches on the console, maybe the designer had an old Saab. Over all I'd buy another one, and I am doing just that...sorry but this one isn't for sale.

Of all the cars I've owned, this one is the most fun. It's also the first time I've had strangers come up to me to ask about my car. Although the styling is a little "different", it's different in a good way. The interior room is surprising and the pick-up is amazing for a small engine. I get over 27 mpg and fill up about every 430 miles. I travel over 140 miles per day and enjoy driving my HHR!

I had the 2007 chevy HHR for almost a year, had a very comfortable ride, handled well, good pickup with the 2.4 liter engine with automatic transmission. Good gas mileage, overall, it was pleasant to own, operate. Decided to return to owning a truck.

I bought my '07 used and have owned it for a month. It gets good mileage and is a good looking vehicle. It's basically comfortable over the road on the highway. But let's face it, the HHR was GM's 3-year late response to the Chrysler PT Cruiser, and it's easy to see where GM cheaped out. Heat distribution to the floor is poor. The suspension leaves a lot to be desired as ride control isn't very good and I can feel every bump in the road, and there are too few miles on it for the shocks to be worn out. The steering is very light and doesn't feel direct. It's a decent little trucklet overall, but if you want more refinement and better execution, buy a Honda or Toyota, but you'll pay more even used.

Have enjoyed the '07 HHR very much and have had nummerous comments from others as to the exterior styling then with the full compliment of equipment on interior, ie, leather seats with heater, tinted windows all around, louvers on windows, 5-passenger comfortable seating, excellent A/C, and the 2.4 liter engine delivering over 23 mpgs is great. Would recommend it to anyone.
