I've had my 2010 HHR for about 1.5 years and still love it. Yes there are some issues with blind spots, but you get used to them after a few days. The engine has a lot of get up and go and when passing someone or going up a hill it sounds like an angry bee but has no issue with power, even when the AC is on. The heat in winter will about run you out if turned on high temp. AC in summer is Ice cold. It is easy to drive and can zip right into parking spaces. When sitting inside it feels so much bigger then it really is. I really like the fold down back seat and have used it to haul larger things several times. Only issue that I had with it came after about 8 months after I got it, the ignition wouldn't turn to off position to turn off the engine and remove key. Had to remove the fuel injectors fuse and unplug the battery to shut car off. I had received a letter from GM a week before that to advise of issue with ignition getting stuck. I took it to dealer and within an hour it was fixed and for free. Handles pretty good on snow and ice too, however took me a while to get used to the traction control trying to compensate for skid. Over all I think this is a very good and reliable car that gets pretty good gas mileage when using regular gas and not so good mileage on E85, but that is normal for all cars using E85.

I have had my car for three months and absolutely love it!!! I last had a Saturn and it was hard for me to get out of the car (I have knee problems). The HHR is perfect for me....I have the driver's seat raised to the highest level and it is perfect for seeing out the windshield. It also makes it great for getting in and out of the car without causing knee pain. I have been getting between 27 to 30 mph....depending whether it is city or highway driving. It has a lot of room inside for passengers and packages and it rides smoothly. Like I said before...I love it!!!!!

We just traded our 2007 PT Cruiser for a 2010 HHR. It has so much more cargo space inside and so many more features. It is a much better choice for a family car. OnStar is an awesome feature. The Power Drivers seat is a must have. I am a shortie and he is tall. I can actually see over the top of the steering wheel! Very comfortable to drive & easy to park.

That's what my son said about it when I brought it home - and I think he just about hit it. It has a lot of positive features of a minivan (cargo and passenger room, comfort) in a smaller size which is easier to maneuver and park. This car has features I thought I'd never find together: fun looking, fun to drive, manual transmission, seats 5 with no body's knees in their chest, cargo space (enough for most everyday needs), good gas mileage, and very affordable (got a great deal when all the dealers were desperate). I've owned this car for a year and so far no problems. My one complaint is the ergonomics could be better. The visibility is a bit of an issue. (Although I've never seen windows defrost so fast which I think has to do with the angle and small size of the windsheild.) The cupholders suck, not a problem for me because I have a short commute but this could be an issue and surprises me coming from GM. Overall though I love this car!

We bought our HHR used with 43k miles on it from a local dealer. We are very pleased with our purchase. The car is comfortable, rides well, gets great mileage, has very good pickup-the 4cyl/transmission combination surprises you, and we like to look and roominess of the car. We're very pleased with our choice.

We got the HHR so we would have a vehicle that could haul stuff - for my woodworking husband and gear for my bicycling hobby. What a find. It meets our needs for functionality and looks great too. The gas mileage is a nice plus as well. Comparison shopping found competitors lacking. They just weren't built as solidly.

Surprisingly roomy on the inside. Fits 4 adults comfortably. I like the reconfigurable storage in the back. and the fact that it is plastic rather than carpeted. I can run to the big box home store and pick up supplies and not worry about messing up carpet. This one has a standard transmission, so performance is adequate. I test drove an automatic and it felt anemic. So far, gas mileage is great 26-27 in town and 31+ on the highway. No problems so far. This is a car I enjoy getting in and driving every morning.

Found nice low mileage certifed HHR On Cars.com So far it has done everything expected. The gas mileage in City is appox. 24 Using E85 has proven to be more costly then regular gasoline and unless there is at least $1.00 difference doesn't pay to use it. The only downside to car is interior panels are completely made of a heavy no attractive plastic.
