My 09 Chevy hh are safe spacious and even has a nifty little compartment.

My 09 Chevrolet hhr has plenty of room, seating 5 people, including the driver. The backseat is very spacious. I have plenty of room for even bigger people. I really enjoyed all the safety features it has including many airbags and I love the digital panel that allows me to see how many miles per gallon I average as well as how many gallons I have left in miles. I do wish the center consul was a little bigger and wasn't so such tight squeeze for my coffee. The trunk although it is a hatchback is very spacious and even has a shelf that you can stack up for even more space. I do not like that it does not have anything to secure any of the stuff in the trunk, and it is a plastic lining so things are constantly sliding around back there. Doing home oil changes are very easy to do as well as much other car maintenance that you would do at home rather than have a shop and there is plenty of space under the hood to work. There is also this awesome hitting compartment in the front that allows you to store stuff away not in the glove compartment. My car was bought used in came with a remote start which is been very convenient during the winter months in Massachusetts state. I feel very safe when driving this vehicle and I enjoy how safe I feel my son is as well. I have not had any major issues with my car and it has served its purpose with many years left still ago.

A black hhr: a decent little car.

Overall the hhr is a nice little car. Its unique shape gives it a little more room than just the typical 4 door sedan. So its size and shape are great. Small features that will not be the deciding factor in buying a car are excellent. The radio will stay on after you've pulled the keys out of the ignition so you can listen to music without wasting petrol. The window controls are in the center of the console making the easier to reach, the layout of the dashboard is overall simple and unobtrusive. There are issues however, and unfortunately they are under the hood. Because of the location of the battery jump starting the car or replacing the battery is way more effort than it should be. A plug needing replacing once and was a simple fix but so much of the engine needed rearranging to even find the issue. Some of the mechanical choices made even a small fixable issue more complicated than it needed to be. However, there weren't that many issues to begin with so overall the hhr has been a decent car to me for around a decade now. Shame they were discontinued.

Reliable, spacious, and smooth ride

I highly recommend this car! It runs really well and is reliable. However, there was a recall having to do with the ignition and turn key. At that time, my steering would lock (not while running) and my key would get stuck. After I followed through with the replacement, free of charge, my car did not lock up anymore. It is a very smooth ride and runs very well (and quiet!). I love the automatic start remote it came with. It is perfect to warm up my car in the winter months before I leave. The backseat is easy to fold down for extra storage needs. I can fold all seats down or either one seat on one side or the two remaining seats. The front passenger seat can also fold down. It has been an extremely reliable car. I bought this car used with 13,000 miles on it in 2012 and it still runs fabulously today in July 2019. I tote around kids to soccer practice with ease and my dad loves borrowing my car for �home improvement store� runs as he can fit a lot of supplies in it.
