I can't believ GM quit making this vehicle!
March 25, 2018
I am extremely disappointed that GM stops making this model. I bought the car used and I understood it had a recall. But with the low mileage and good price, I decided to go for it. I have a disability and wanted something that would be easy to get in and out of and if needed, to be able to accommodate a wheelchair without a fuss. The recall was no big deal and I took it to a local Chevy Dealer who was more than happy to fix the ignition recall, even though I had not bought it there. I found the car to be very comfortable and the driver seat has several adjustments with great lumbar support. The split back seats and the front passenger seat all fold down flat which really comes in handy for me. Between hauling lumber, paint and other hardware, big dogs and travel to several Powwows a year with passengers, it has more than met every expectation that I had. The cruise control is great and it is not costly for my mechanic to work on (recently had right rear shock replaced due to road hazard). It gets better gas mileage than my former van, and has been very reliable. The exterior styling is not really something I thought about, but it is extremely easy to maneuver and seems like it can turn on a dime. Both the exterior and interior are very easy to clean and I really like the material (whatever it is) on the dash, steering wheel, door panels, back of seats and floors. It never gets too hot in the summer where you burn your hands on anything and doesn't seem too cold in the winter. The radio and disc player work great and the clock is very easy to reset when needed. The only thing I wish it had was a bigger cup holder between the front driver and passenger seats and cup holders for the back seat passengers. Again, I am severely sad that I have not been able to trade up to a new HHR.
