July 20, 2005Thought this was going to be the next PT cruiser but I was wrong. It's actually the PT Cruiser competitor, the Chevrolet HHR. It does look like the cruiser but boxie looking. Notice the front end. I found this on ptenthusiasts.com in case you were wondering. What are your opinions on this one, better or worse than the 2006 PT Cruiser?????????
July 20, 2005Good morning....
I do not like it...ok it is o.k., but I don't think it will ever be as popular as the PT. The thing that will help it is it has a 6 cyl. option. It's hard to beat perfection...hee hee although I am not sure how much I like the 06 PT. The front is ok, but the headlights are not to my liking. Someone else said the headlights look like they came from a dodge truck..I agree.
Mixed emotions...But Chevy HHR...not!
July 20, 2005SUV look not my cup of tea! Sa far as the chnges they have planned for the Cruiser I say don't do it DC, leave well enough alone. If it ain't broke don't fix it & according to the # of sales of the Cruiser I would have to say it ain't broke.

I would rather see this one sell..keep it in the family...
If they only would have stuck with the concept car..
July 20, 2005The HHR is coming out a little too late to compete witht the PT,to me just looks like another one of their SUV's,albeit a small one.It doesnt have the distinctive look of the PT,sorry GM but its just not gonna be any competition for the Cruiser.
The 06 PT front end stinks,as well as the headlights.If they make those changes,there gonna drive their sales into the ground.Unless they make a panel version that is,cause that thing would sell like hotcakes.
July 20, 2005My whole thing About DC saying they won't make a panel becasue there isn't enough people that want it, is a crock. They need to do like they did with the Cruiser to start just relaese it. I know if they produce it & put it on the market they would be suprised to see how m,any people would purchase it. DC needs to come on to this site & see how many posts there are about the panel & tehy would realize there is a bigger demand then they think.
July 21, 2005I saw pics of the HHR interior on another site and.... !!!! It's really square looking and the seats.... well they're square too but almost paper thin!!!! If I see more pics I'll post em'. All in all, I think it's fugly, same with the '06 PT. Like I said before, I'll just stick with mine.
July 21, 2005In this thread there's a pic of an HHR in front of a PT - the HHR looks like your average SUV (Kinda Dodge Durango-like, I think)
It's bigger & heavier than a PT, but top engine will be 170 HP -
August 27, 2005I saw those pics of that Dodge Caliber. Supposedly they wanna build the 08 cruiser on that platform. I just don't like all that gray plastic crap on the outside, up top like that i'ts pretty tacky. I don't think any 05 cruiser has anything like that on the bumpers even. Hopefully they won't do anything lame like that in 08. Nonetheless, the PT is way better than that HHR <----needs a better name, at least.
August 27, 2005My 2cents. Well, the HHR is second best. Carbon copy of an
origional. But, what do I know I bought a Vega. LOL H.
August 27, 2005I dont like the me too cruiser.!! here is a good thread on the me too cruiser. there are lots of hi rez pic's. It allways helps to know thy compatition an I dont think that the me too will be any.
