2005 Chevrolet SSR 2dr Regular Cab Convertible LS Rwd SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Limited storage space in cabin, more than adequate in rear. Would have prefered at least a six speed auto, not four, but it's an older vehicle. Would like some of the recent features such as bluetooth and USB ports. No other vehicle gets as many "thumbs up" or favorable looks and comments. This car is a real character builder, or if male, a real testosterone shot. The sound is absolutely AWESOME.

Review

Having motorcycles all my adult life, and was looking for a new direction to go. Spotted a SlingShot Yellow SSR in a local used car lot. A 2005 6 speed with all the options and only 10K miles. Harry, as it's known (Taxi by HArry Chapin was the influence),is all grins and a fun driver. Love the sound of the burbling exhaust and the push in your back acceleration. The quality of the interior components is my only real complaint. Cheesy and plastic. They are certainly not up to the quality of the "look" the SSR presents. Otherwise, Harry is great fun and now I'm one of those guys who parks at the far end of the lot. PS...stay home when it rains or drive something else,,,no traction control and 400 HP & Fat tires make for a Tilt-a-Whirl ride. Harry will never see snow!

Review

This little SSR has great features and very enjoyable to drive and gets great gas mileage. Lots of power for its size. The value of this auto is holding up very well. This is a keeper.

Review

I have driven almost every exotic car being in the car business for many years, there is none as fun and as cool as the six speed SSR i bought from Freehold Pontiac. GM made the mistake of introducing the SSR with a weak engine initially, what a mistake! that is why this magnificent did not do well, they should remake the car with some upgrades and a 600 HP engine. and you will see that it will outsell any convertible sport car out there, this work of art turns more heads than Ferrari and Lambo. It is such fun to drive that when you get home , you feel like going out again for another ride, now that is cool, how many other cars can you say that for? I hope GM is reading our comments.


Best Features

The original idea of the designer of this car, which by the way deserves gold medal. the look, comfort, the attention, the whole package, just love it , my 911 is sitting in the garage ever since i bought the 2005 SSR.


Worst Features

Re introduce this vehicle again, 600 HP motor, SPARE TIRE, interior storage, better sound system/with Nav, power cargo cover. I hope GM does not discard this icon, it could be a money maker for GM if they play their cards right.
