Don't clump us all together. No one gets to put their feet anywhere but the mats in my car


The cars look awesome. Ruby Red is a stunner, that's for sure.

Not very nice but kind of funny! In all seriousness, the HHR isn't bad if you have the SS model. The base doesn't do it for me though. The bumpers are kind of large too. Still far better than the PT Cruiser (PT = Pretending To be a).

I would still take a Ti or ST Focus over it though. Purely aesthetic reasons.

Wasney Congrats!

And I can agree, base Cobalt = plastic toy. I have a 06 LS sitting outside, waiting for it to sell to pickup my new 13 Focus SE. Wish the thing would just walk away...

It has been given credit as the best handling FWD car available for American purchase, but I do not know if thats exact. If GM would have put better tires on it from factory, instead of Conti Sport Contact 2's (Potenzas would have been sweet) it may have handled even better.

I got the manual (of course), and my "what is this third pedal" gf got the auto. Both are good IMO.

Thanks. I havent read too much into the st so I cant comment...all I can say is, I would rather have it than a cobalt, lol.

The LSD would definitely be a big help. Between my old SRT4 and the SS/TC, it would be hard to go to a performance minded FWD car without it...but the ST could be the exception.
