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 LVlocal 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 LVlocal time and exposure.

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.

As a German I'm a little concerned with the amount of times SS is emphasized in this video.

There was also an HHR variant that had front door windows, rear door windows, but no windows where the trunk is... WHY???

I wonder why they didn't just do away with that cargo bed at the back for more space..

I've seen cars like the HHR driving through suburban Miami ever since I was 5, yet I've never actually gotten to know the car that well. I was always itching to find out more about this strange-looking hatchback/van. So glad I was able to find this vid :D

The Chevrolet HHR Panel SS, in my opinion, is one of the fastest commercial vehicles out there.

The retro-styled SSR pickup roadster by Chevrolet was also built in response to Chrysler's hugely successful PT Cruiser, with production lasting from 2003 to 2006.

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 ❤️

Doug forgot to mention that the front passenger seat folds flat forward and the car will accommodate 8' lumber comfortably. They're fun, funky, and yes highly polarizing.

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.

Thanks,Soug: this kind of “ rarity” vehicle and history is really interesting.. ! There is a plethora or other small “runs”:1966 RIVIERA 425/ MZ, 1957 Ford Ranchero FEULIE,Dealer Runs, WW2 Studebaker 4WD,, & Packard Hawks,Ford STATion Wagons 4 speed/ 427, Police Packages (** Wow !,,, on couple vehicle runs, even in early days) . Problem finding and , seeing a non- Museum example ( unless a working vehicle-which is another prob,em),.... Actually, think Some WW2 , wagons, trucks &;Cars need more exposures,,,,,: unfortunately most of Drivers/Keepers WW2 now passed,

Just about ALL hatchbacks have the same type of emergency release system on the inside of hatch. Some of them are visible without removing a plastic cover, but plastic covers for seldom used things in cars, are very common. For example my car's tow hook has a plastic cover. Apparently, with D DeM, when something commonplace has escaped his notice, he concludes that it must be unusual.

Hey Doug, quick correction, the guy that GM hired to design the HHR was formerly a Chrysler designer, but he was at most tangentially involved with the design of the PT Cruiser. Despite the obvious parallels, this is the kind of thing GM had been working on for a while. Chrysler had the Prowler and the PT Cruiser, GM had the SSR and the HHR. Retro design philosophies were popular at the time and not the product of a single person.

My company had one of these--well, the panel version but not the SS. The unibody construction ensured that there was hardly any vertical room. Open the side doors and you can see the bottom one foot or so is blocked off.

I drive a standard HHR and I see them EVERYWHERE. They’re FAR more common than PT Cruisers, at least where I live. They’re seriously underrated, especially for someone’s first car for someone who isn’t a total obsessive car nut, and it’s honestly a shame that it didn’t last very long. I feel like they could easily revive it today as a budget vehicle, which is effectively the group that it caters to today in the used market. This model would absolutely make BANK in Asia if it wasn’t already completely saturated by similar cargo vehicles by Japanese/Korean manufacturers.
