TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Chevrolet HHR is a great urban runabout for small-business owners with frequent cargo hauls. When looking at the 2009 Kia Rondo, don’t judge a book by its cover. Though it doesn’t flaunt svelte good looks or flashy trim and wheels, you’ll see it in a different light once you discover how Kia uses the space inside. The 2009 Scion xB has polarizing looks, a no-haggle dealer experience, and a long safety features list. It provides good value for those on a budget.
