The Chevy HHR SS Panel Is One of the Weirdest Modern Cars

1 014 663 Megtekintés

The Chevy HHR SS Panel is one of the strangest modern cars in existence. Today I'm reviewing the HHR SS Panel, and I'm going to show you the quirks and features of the Chevy HHR SS Panel -- a high-performance panel van. Then I'm going to get it out on the road, drive it, and tell you what it's like.

    • Your Car Show on HUworld is Best #1 Cause of your personality and pronunciations. But, you need a female model to help you out and make people laugh too. Not in a bikini of course, but one that is cute, long hair, lifts weights, competes in IFBB amateur competitions and is looking for more video HUworld time and exposure.

  • It's funny GM got a head start on small economy panal vans so early with this HHR ..look around now and Ford and Ram both now have their own "small business" vehicles. Having owned both the HHR and PT cruiser I'd actually put the Cruiser only slightly above the HHR.Believe it or not the PT had a more well put together interior...soooooo much plastic in the HHR.

  • The PT Crusier is a very nice looking comfortable small car with retro looks. The mechanical aspects of it were lacking as it really needed a ultra reliable engine and transmission . Had the PT had that it would still be a hit. That panel van thing is the most ugly looking automobile from modern times meaning the last fifty years

  • I've had a 2009 HHR panel for 5 years, and didn't know about the hidden hatch release. The last time my battery died, I resorted to attaching a battery starter/charger under the hood, in order to get the hatch open. lol. Really enjoyed the video. Great car too. My non-ss version is ridiculously reliable.

  • Re: plastic moulding to unlock the trunk 4th gen subaru outbacks have that. If the battery dies or wiring to the trunk fails, you can remove a small plastic cover on the inside of the trunk to reveal a switch. This switch becomes a manual lock/unlock switch, and the handle outside the car functions normally. It's not as hidden as the one in the HHR, though.

  • The rear cargo area and the buttons on the key fob for the HHR Panel have definitely seen better days.

  • The Chevrolet HHR Panel is essentially a smaller cargo van, built on similar principles as the Ford Transit Connect, Ram Promaster City, Nissan NV200, Toyota Hiace, and many others.

  • You can have everlasting life and be saved and forgiven all your sins if you believe in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour 😊💕💖❤️ Jesus died for our sins got buried and rose from the dead ❤️ read Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22 they are prophecy’s about Jesus written long before the crucifixion and can be found in the Old Testament or on google ❤️😊 also look up the prophecy of tyre and what happened ( really do if you don’t believe in the real God ) repent toward God and believe in Jesus Christ if you have not and if you do not ❤️💕 do you know where you will go when you die? ❤️❤️ when it comes to truth don’t trust the lies from the ones called roman catholic’s or orthodox and I mean no offence ❤️ but they are not biblical in many things and I’m not saying they lie about everything but it’s just better to read the Bible for yourself then listen to a roman catholic or orthodox priest I believe ❤️ and I have lived in and one side of my family is from a orthodox country so I write from experience ❤️ My tip is to start with the New Testament ❤️💕 God bless you and your family 💕❤️ and if you are Muslim read surah 18:86 without the editing from the commentator ❤️

  • I’m sorry, but the whole time I couldn’t stop thinking about how it would be ideal for a kidnapping. There are no windows in the back for the kid to get the attention of cars passing, and it has a lot of storage space for children of all sizes, also do to the large cargo space depending on the age of the children and other size factors, multiple kids can be transported at once.
