are we in the wagon section? I'm kinda offended! ***smiles*** Chevy claims it is an SUV, my insurance has it listed as a truck. Can someone move this, I don't be a wagon driver, lol!

    Actually, if you start at and are researching wagons, that's the category you'll find the HHR under. Pretty much that's why the discussions are here.

    I guess it is whatever we choose to call it
  • Insurance in Ontario lists it as a truck. The Ministry of Transportation lists it as an SUV/car.

    I think it's a car/wagon.

    My friends say its a hearst.
  • I live in Florida and mine is titled as a Truck. :)
  • Now I would have figured it to be a Wagon, after all it IS listed in the WAGONS section of Carspace forums. LOL

    My Nitro is listed as a Wagon and it's clearly a SUV/Truck...

    The estimated city mileage per gallon is 20 or more, and passengers don't have to climb upwards into the vehicle, so that puts the HHR into car-based wagon territory for me.

    I have Allstate and they claim my 2LT is a truck. I did mention to my agent it is, for all intensive purposes, a Cobalt. :confuse:

    Considering I also have my 99 V6 S10 on my insurance, I think there is a difference. Still confused almost 2 years later--but also still LOVE my HHR.
  • It's a POS, silly man.
  • It's hard to tell...
    The way I see it, it's a "car" (Cobalt"s platform/engine) disguised as a Truck, SUV or Wagon but....
    When we take a close look at it...from underneath it's a car, from the exterior it's a truck, from the interior it's a wagon.
    The HHR model was based on the looks of the 1949 Chevrolet Suburban and that Suburban was definetly a "truck" but with a real truck platform, the HHR was designed by it's looks only.
    I owned many SUV's in the past and I never saw the HHR as an SUV.'s a Car-uck (LS) a C-ruck (LT) and a Tr-ar (SS)
