My SSR:
2005 Slingshot Yellow
thanks for the info in post. Some I knew, some I didn't and some I forgot. Should copy it and keep it handy for reference. Does any one know about a spare tire that fits both front and back. I read somewhere that a 17 inch Trailblazer rim with a 235/65/17 tire would do it. Is there a special year rim that would be needed or would any Trailblazer rim fit? I bought my SSR last December 2014 from my brother-in-law who bought it new in 2005. All last summer while I used it I worried about getting a flat. I carried a air pressure machine,a spare floor jack and some flat tire repair sticks just incase. But I would really feel much better knowing I can jack up the car change the tire and make it back home. Any suggestions on the year trailblazer rim or is it any year ?

Your best bet to be safe is the steel 17" rim the trailblazer uses for a spare, they are all the same.

Often wrong...... but never in doubt.

I have been exposed to so much information in a short period of time that there is no way this old mind can retain it. Will print it out and also save it as a .PDF and move it to iBooks so can use it on my phone.

So many thanks to all of you who have contributed. i have been on many forums, but none come close to this one is any phase of quality or in the spirit of helping.

THANKS, Gib

Found all of this good info, as am about to go get my new ride...SSR this weekend. Wife will be coming along to "co-pilot" the return trip across the country.

I will need a little better understanding of the following (confusing) commentary regarding locking the doors.

"Locking the SSR
There are several ways to lock the SSR many owners close the doors and use the FOB.
**This method does not arm the alarm system"

Hello...........The above says this method does NOT arm the alarm.

Fast forward down about 3 or 4 sentences, and it says........."If the SSR was locked via the FOB, and the key is used to gain access the alarm/horn will go off.

How does that happen???????????? Those two entries contradict one another to me.

Lock the doors with the fob BEFORE you close the last door (you will hear the chimes 3 or 4 times after you click the lock) and it will arm the alarm. Unlocking it with the key, OR by lifting the knob on the door, OR by using the switch on the console will set off the alarm. This allows you to leave the top down and windows up and the alarm will be set. To shut off the alarm after it has been tripped you will need the key in the ignition and turned on. I am not sure, but I do not think the fob will shut it off once it has been tripped. You might want to try it before you need it.

OK, I kinda get it. My wife takes FOREVER it seems to get out of her seat and gather her purse and finally close the door...........so, trying your suggestion should be fairly easy.

They kinda are. The truck was first painted all the same colour then at the end of the assembly
it was taped and papered off below where the line is then repainted the other colour on the top side.

That's why you can see the over spray when you open the doors at the hinges. It was not taped off.

Thanks so much

As a new owner (2 months now and 600 miles added to the odometer), I found this post by accident (searched for defroster, haha). What an awesome write up! Im learning something new everyday it seems about this wonderful vehicle. I visited this forum before I bought my SSR and I scanned through some posts here and there, but now its apparent that this place is a living encyclopedia for the SSR. As a newbie, I sincerely appreciate the time and dedication to compiling this information and publishing it for all to use.
Thanks again!

Welcome to the family. You might want to start your own thread to introduce yourself. Congratulations on your new purchase.

That is exactly what the SoCal Nuts is about, as well as all the Fanatics on here. You should start your own thread under the newbie section and let people know where you live. You will find out that you have many knowledgeable and helpful neighbors like @BlueStreak and @Knightranger

If it don't turn you on when you turn it on, drive something else!
