Wow you actually wanted an HHR? I drive one for work and that is the single worst car I've ever driven. I'm not tall I'm 5'11". But for the life of me I can't see out of that thing. I have to sit 4 cars back from a stop light to see it. If I don't I have to lean forward and lean my head over to the passenger side of the car. If I don't want to do either of those I have to cram my knees to the dash and lean the seat way back. And who's bright idea was to put the window buttons on the bottom center of the dash?

First off don't knock an SS unless you have driven one.
Few were made but with the GM tune it was 300 HP and 315 torque with 23 psi of boost. Add to that the The GM Performance Divisons suspension tuning that provided a Nurburgring 8 min lap time. It is far from the normal HHR. Also if you were dumb enough it can reach 160 mph.
As for the window buttons mine were on the doors.
As for fitting I am 5/11 and had no issue. Sure it had a bunker feel but I am used to driving special an unique vehicles.
There is no need to be 4 cars back at a light and you only have issues if you are too stupied to pull to far under the light.
As for arms and legs unless you have alligator arms it is not much of an issue.
Adapting to it was no more difficult than it is for a Corvette it Hummer.
If you had that much trouble adapting you would never make it as a true Hot rodder you could never handle a chopped coupe.
Hey for the money it was a good buy and it has held its value. It got great mpg and could haul a lot of cargo.
The best part was when a guy in a Mustang tried to leave you and you keep with him. Then it making him ask how you did that made any minor issues worth it.
