I'm looking to buy an 05. Been checking the site for quality issues. Do the 05's seem to have any less rattling and window leakage issues? We get alot of rain in south florida. I can live with a few squeaks and rattles but the leaks would be annoying. What about the drive line " tink" issue. Has that been resolved in the 05's? Any feed back is appreaciated.

Here's my '05 issues.
Yes the "tink" is there and is getting worse.
Slight air leak on passenger side of roof.
AC seems to cool down when backing off the gas.

Otherwise a great ride, most fun I've had with any car/truck, including 3 Vette's and multiple highend German rides.

When does the tink start?
I have 4000+ miles on my 05, about 1/2 of them in passing gear,
passing 1 or 2 or 3 cars at a time.
Mine dosen't have the tink,"YET".
The only problem I have is the radio does not pick up as good
as I think it should.
I fixed the hyd hose rubbing the top myself.
If it had a 411 rear end, header, and the radio fixed, it would be 100%,
for now.

I wish I could draw you a picture, but, I tryed tieing it off to the plastic part,
next to the hinge, to hold it back from the top, that didn't work.
Then I drilled a hole (3/16) in the seam of the sheet metal, that sticks out, right below the hinge to hold the hyd hose away from the top when its down.
I used a #12 coated, solid copper wire to tie it down with.
If you will put the top down, and about 3 inches before the cover get closed,stop
it there.
Its a little hard to see in, but use a flashlight and look in, you can see what needs to be done.
When the top cover comes down, to be closed, then is when the hose get close to the top.
I just didn't want GM to pull my hyd hose off to reroute it.

Thanks for all the feed back. Now I'm having a hard time deciding on the color. I was leaning towards silver. I never thought I would want to own a black vehicle but the SSR in black sure looks mean.. Thanks again and I hope to join the ranks soon.
