If you have a car it might make sense not to get a place downtown Helsinki. It's not much of an advantage and finding parking can be a real pain in the ass in certain places.

There are highways going around Helsinki called Kehä(="ring") 1 and Kehä 3. The latter one goes basically straight into Vuosaari harbour. There are some nice areas along it and if you don't want to be right in the center of Helsinki, that could make more sense. As FiLe mentioned, there are quite a few large shopping centers all around the Helsinki/Espoo/Vantaa area.

EkiE mentioned Tikkurila which is along Kehä 3. Distance by car to Vuosaari harbour is about 8-9 miles.
