The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chevrolet HHR (Heritage High Roof) may surprise you with its competence and quality. The 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser convertible gets the axe midway through 2008, so if you want one, act quickly, but the wagon is here if you need flexible utility with retro flair.
