I had an 07 HHR. I loved the car. It was just totaled 3 weeks ago. I was hit buy a woman who lost control of her Chrysler Pacifica. This was on a very nasty parkway after a snow storm. She sent me into a 720 degree spin and then i hit the Retaining wall. I was so shook up i thought i s*#t my pants. After i shook off the cobwebs i got out of the car without a scratch. My HHR (i called it Charleen) had kept me safe and sound. Now that the insurance is settled i'm getting my 09 Malibu.
I used to hate when people would ask me "is that a PT Cruiser". Thee HHR was nothing like a PT "Loser". I've been stuck in a PT for the last 3 weeks. Got it as an insurance co rental. It is total crap. It doesn't have half as much interior space as my HHR had. The dash board is plastic and cheap looking. It handles like a dog, and it only got around 20 mpg. R.I.P. "Charleen"...i will miss you.
