2010 Chevrolet HHR Expert Review
The Chevrolet is an exceptional vehicle that anyone would be proud of!
I love my Chevy hhr. It is a very reliable vehicle to drive. It gets good gas mileage, approximately 25 mpg. It is a smooth ride. The HHR is stylish as well. The seats are comfortable to sit in and has adequate leg room. I like that my HHR easily fits in my garage. It is big enough that I would feel protected in a car accident, unlike would be the case in a really small car. The Chevy HHR has the normal features of what you need in a vehicle. It has a good air conditioning unit and heater. It has electric windows and electric seats. It also has air bags for the driver and passenger. However, there is a button you can push to turn off the passenger airbag. The HHR has a factory stereo that has good clear sound, with the option of having onstar. I like the paint job as it is a shiny metallic dark blue. The HHR has good acceleration without having a bumpy start. It has great brakes which work really well. It has four doors and seats 4 people comfortably. It is a hatchback which makes it very easy to go grocery shopping. It is quite roomy and if more room is needed, the back seat can fold down. The HHR has a good engine; however, the battery is tricky to get to. There is a fuse panel on top, but it is doable. In summary, the HHR is a really good dependable car. Anyone would be very pleased with owning one.
Great car, great gas mileage, little room.
My hhr has lasted for several years, with minimal maintenance. It is actually much roomier than expected on the inside, as long as you do not have kids in backwards facing car seats. That is a nightmare to fit into the backseat. Once my son was out of a booster, he found the back seat much more comfortable. You are not going to get 3 grown people in the back, but 3 kids fit fine, again if they are not all in car seats. If you have car seats you will get two, max, in the back. You may be able to shove a child in between them. My husband is 6' and drives the car fine, as long as the seat is all the way back. It does offer a nice recline on the passenger seat for long car rides. The seats are comfortable enough for daily use, but once you are in the car for more than about an hour, you realize what a lack of padding really is. This particular make also had several recalls, and some issues that were a recall on the same brand, that were fixed thanks to my warranty. It gets great gas mileage and has a decent back to store things in.
Battery is in the back by the spare tire.
No major problems. Bought 1 set of tires, 1 battery, and have done oil changes, and replaced the 3 windshield wipers. That is it. Very comfortable, easy to drive, good on gas, just this month the a/c stopped working. Love the size of the car, the hatch door in back is great especially when shopping and loading. Both back seats fold down giving lots of room. The back has a shelf you can put in and hide things in the trunk area. After 7 years finally replaced the battery. I did not know it was in the trunk by the spare tire!
