Why the 2008 Chevrolet HHR?

Fuel economy

RE the HHR SS model, highway mileage with heavy footing out of toll booths with 3 total passengers yielded 27.5 mpg.


The HHR SS ran totally flat in curves on backroads, like it was on rails, thanks to the FE5 suspension.

Cargo capacity

For a vehicle the size of most subcompacts, the cargo area is much larger than anything in its class.

Brand reputation & image

Critics may bash American brains when it comes to engineering, but owners have a different story to tell. I have had my issue with Asian vehicles and had lasting luck with domestics, so I use my own experiences to guide my mechanical judgement.

Why Not the 2008 Chevrolet HHR?

Dealer practices

A little more accomodating than the high pressure Asian dealerships, but they are still dealerships in the end and always have angles to take extra money from you.

Discounts & incentives

Smaller incentives for cars like the HHR, which are in more demand than the guzzlers. You would think that the mfg would want more market share.
