My hubby DIY'd the ReadyBrute Elite towbar system (tow bar w/built-in Ready Brake). The most difficult part of the installation is routing the aircraft cable through the engine compartment. Sooooo, I'd say take a good look under your hood and determine whether you believe you can route the cable, including drilling the hole(s) in the firewall for the brake cable and the breakaway. If you have fair mechanical aptitude, you should have no problem. Our toad is a Jeep, so I don't know how the HHR engine compartment compares. Hopefully an HHR owner will see this and respond. Good luck.
