    I have recently looked at a honda Fit Sport, The HHR, and am considering the Corolla. I need an econo box that has some configuration flexability. The HHR is the biggest, (puts on flamesuite) with relatively good mileage but its not fun to dirve. The Fit i test drove was a blast to drive but deff the smallest, and had the smallest engine being a 1.5 L with a whopping 109 HP. I have not driven a new corolla yet, but have experience with my moms which is a few years old. Pros and Cons on any or all of these from people who have actually used them?

    P.S. Please limit comments like its a chevy and plastic crap, or its a toyota and will last forever if you havent driven any of these cars or owned them.

    Im looking for good opinions (which i prob shouldnt be on OT for this but hey it worth a shot)

    I drove an HHR and that was one of the worst vehicles I've ever driven.

    I'd go with the fit...they're versatile and will fit a lot of stuff (no pun intended), and they're definitely the most fun out of the vehicles you listed...

    I'd get the Fit out of those 3. I've only ever driven a Corolla out of those, though

    the hhr is quite possibly the most pointless piece of worthless shit ever produced.

    right behind the dodge caliber.

    If you REALLY need/want a new car for the room, get the HHR.

    If you favor a more fun car to drive, get the Fit.

    It's really not that hard to pick which one to get.

    fit FTW.

    fuck the HHR and it's horrendous blind spots and horribly cramped engine bay.

    instead of the corolla, you might want to look at the civic

    I think the HHR looks the best of the three, but I'd probably pick the Corolla.
