Review

This truck is beautiful and in great condition. Drives like a charm and has a lot of get up and go. I love my SSR. Buying experience was outstanding. My sales person, manager and financial person were great and honest. Honesty is hard to come by. They were fantastic and I would recommend all my friends to go there.


Favorite Features

The color-the design and the hard top convertible. This vehicle had perfect interior.


Suggested Improvements

The only thing I can think of is to get better gas mileage

Review

I thought the truck was Bad when it first came out. The GM designers did their work on this one to create a unique ride. I almost bought a red 05 last year, but backed out. I started to look real hard for a clean one. I found one in my own backyard at Chase Chevrolet located in Stockton, Ca. I have driven the big engine and found that the small engine is just fine. I have owned many Chevy muscle cars in my day. Still i'm my geerage to this day are a stock 71 RS/Z28 350 LT-1 4 spd. A 67 Chevy II Nova with a 427/turbo 400 with 456 cogs. The black SSR i just bought is in pristine condition. I did not buy it for a hot rod, I bought it because it is a classy ride. The Heartbeat rides on


Favorite Features

The whole ride! I feel the black paint does this truck justice. It is a 2000 concept truck with a modern/old school flair and makes for a one of kind ride that has to be owned to understand the feeling that a SSR owner get's every time they sit behind the wheel and fires it up! My top is always down


Suggested Improvements

The cheap little plastic hood rod holder. How could the GM designers missed the boat on this item? Maybe a retro fit kit with the 05-06 hood gas struts? Oh heck..... I'll build them myself, after all.....They are not making SSR's anymore. That my friends, is a crime

Review

Purchased my SSR in September 2008, after seeing it at the Dealers, and just had to have it. Have seen them in the past, and thought they were just the kind of vehicle I needed to have. Traded in a 2004 Mini Cooper, same yellow in color, but not a color person. It was just what was available. This SSR does everything asked of it. Comfortable in long drives as well as down the street. Always attracts looks of envy, jealousy, or whatever. There are only 2 others in the whole county, so I know it still attracts attention. Don't plan on ever getting rid of it and even have it mentioned in my will as to who gets it.


Favorite Features

The body style, the room it has even though it does not look like it has much room. Very comfortable to drive. Hard to service.


Suggested Improvements

Make the Battery easier to service, charge and replace. Make parts more available and cheaper. One wheel is $863.00

Review

I have owned all types of car and trucks. In fact I have a 64' Chevelle, the SSR is the best. I drive it as a daily driver, mine is an 04' purple. I get some looks that is for sure, not so good in the snow but, it is still fast and fun.


Favorite Features

The styling it reminds me of a old truck, the cool thing is that I will be able to bring it to old car shows, like I used to bring my Chevelle because they are that popular.


Suggested Improvements

My door handle broke after 2 months, this is something that they should have thought that would be something to improve on

Review

I bought my 04 in Dec 07. I have always wanted one but couldn't justify the price. Well the price was right and I got my new toy. It is my company vehicle and my daily driver. Makes me feel like a young man again. Top down is incredible and a great attention getter (nearly causes many fender benders) I had a vinyl wrap put on with my company logo and I tell you it is the cheapest and greatest advertising you can get. We put woodgrain accents above the fenders and on the gate. This baby looks like a true 40's roadster. I've owned over thirty vehicles in my life but this one has got to stay. My future grandchildren will have the opportunity to drive this one. Thanks GM!


Favorite Features

Retractible top and incredible throttle sound


Suggested Improvements

More room for seat controls, eliminate cavitating, offer more wheel tire combinations

Review

I've owned 5 Camaros in the past and this is the only vehicle I've ever test driven and now owed that came anywhere close to the performance I was looking for. I test drove a lot of trucks and cars and the SSR was the only one that I liked that had the sound and motion to go with it. It's very comfortable and not too low to the ground like my Iroc. Great handling and love the little extras that came with it. Handling and speed are my most concerns. The convertible top is awesome on summer nights and days. It has been a very reliable.


Favorite Features

Power, handling, comfort, heated leather seets, easy knob controls, great head lights/ fog and has the best braking system I've ever seen in any vehicle. Handles the road really nice! The convertible is really nice on warmer days and nights and it easy to use.


Suggested Improvements

Back up mirror?
