2007 Chevrolet HHR LS 2.2 ecotec from North America
Honestly one of the best cars I've owned
Absolutely no mechanical issues whatsoever.
This has been outstanding value. This little car is stylish, economical and surprisingly rugged.
I cannot imagine how others can consider the car cheaply built. The 2.2 ecotec 4 cylinder and Hydra-Matic 4t45e trans-axle are as sturdy as the old Chevy's from the 60's.
The styling is eye catching, and many people who see it stop me to tell a story about the '49 Suburban their dad owned or something of that nature.
The usable storage area is huge for this size vehicle.
The fuel economy is tremendous - far exceeding the EPA 23/30. I have never gone below 25 city, and I have seen 34 highway.
I have never owned a car this small, and I never thought I would be this happy with it.
Just in case any one was wondering, both the HHR and PT Cruiser were designed by the same man - he moved from Chrysler to GM!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

That explains why they both look terrible. He should be fired... again.

One man's treasure. Personally, I love the styling.

I understand that you may not like the design, and to each their own; if every man wanted to date a redhead, then there would be no need for blondes or brunettes.
Personally I've had 3 PT Cruisers and I absolutely love them. They are loaded with space. I am looking forward to buying an HHR with even more cargo room.
One man's junk is another man's treasure; that's exactly how I think this fits the story. I absolutely love the styling of them.

I didn't know this, but I love the PT Cruiser and I love the HHR's looks. Having said that, I drive a Honda Elephant (Element). If it was up to you, we would all be driving Dodge mini vans.
