2004 Chevrolet SSR Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab Convertible LS Rwd SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my 04 SSR on 7/30/04 brand new. I used to watch the commercial on TV where the yellow SSR would turn around and be the last vehicle to get on the new car carrier. My hairs would stand straight up on my arms! I never in my wildest dreams that I would ever own one. Well I do! And I am so glad to be a owner of an SSR. After almost 4 yrs. of having my SSR, it is like the day I bought it. I also own a 2000 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air and 2007 Chevy Avalanche. I personally would never buy a foreign vehicle in my life. All I can say is the people who have bad things to say about the SSR are; jealous because they want one, can't get one, don,t have one! I love my SSR and the experience


Best Features

Retractable top, yellow, design of the outside, big tires, chrome wheels, heated seats (you can go topless longer). I like everything about my baby.


Worst Features

More storage inside(maybe lift bottom of seat for storage),have parts available for the SSR(always have to wait,if they ever come in) Goodyear to make the factory tires when they need to be replaced,03/04 Factory exhaust tips made available

Review

I’ll just start by saying…I love my vehicle, and plan on having it till the day I die. It handles very well in the turns, but because of U.S. law, it has a governor to limit your top speed… bummer, but it will still get up and go. I have the 5.3 V8, and love the sound it makes when you romp on it. I also love the fact that it looks like nothing else on the road, and that people still stop and stare when I drive by…priceless.


Best Features

Top down, warm sunny day, and a road with lots of turns.


Worst Features

Spare tire…or maybe run flats…you do not want to get a flat in this truck… especially if the tire shreds…like mine did. The patch kit behind your seat is worthless if your tire comes apart…GM puts run flats on the Vet., but not the SSR…why not?

Review

Vehicle is equiped with 5.3 l /auto trans /seating is kind of tight on outboard sides for a big guy like me (250lbs)and hard to get hand to seat controls with door closed. It could have more acceleration which was addressed in 2005-2006 models with 6.0 400 h.p engine however I have driven all three models 5.3 w/auto and 6.0 w/auto feel near the same but 6.0 w/5- spd is a real rocketship. Braking and handling are excellent reminding me of a Corvette except for the seating position which is more upright. This is a sunny day car and its curb appeal is excellent


Best Features

Convertible roof, exterior styling, performance


Worst Features

More HP

Review

Purchased a 2004 SSR because I wanted a roadster. Was all set to get a used Mercedes SL500, when I saw this. I'm tall, 6'5, and the Mercedes was the only roadster with enough headroom etc for me. The SSR has 40" of headroom! Kinda tight interior quarters but overall far more fun, style, and room for cargo etc than the benz plus no hardtop/softop but a retractable steel hardtop, the ultimate! Build quality surprized me as to how good it was and it is a blast to drive. Being a Benz driver I was also surprized at all the luxury goodies this SSR had, heated seats, lumbar, Bose high radio/CD, power everything etc. Outrageous styling, fun, and some practicality to for a roadster, I'm hooked!


Best Features

Retractable steel top. Great styling. Luxury features. Nice appointed cabin. Big tires and huge twin exhaust pipes!


Worst Features

For me, a little bigger cabin, thats it!
