Good afternoon,

I've been looking at SSRs for a few years, wanted to get a manual but...not sure I'll like one after driving a 5 speed, manual, 4 cyl 2l dohc mx6 for a number of years. Plus, I'm still trying to figure out my spouse's corvette shifting so maybe I'll just stay with an automatic.

Anyway, stopped at a dealer who was offering a 2003 slingshot yellow SSR, 700 miles, automatic, very tempted. Asking price was 37,999, seemed a little high :).
Looked to be maxed, people traded in for a 2004, had running boards, cargo net, six CD player, etc

Could someone give me an idea of relative value for 2003, 2004 SSRs. I've seen a lot of back and forth on this forum. Very helpful, just wanted to know if I would be out of my mind going back to the nice man and offering 28K, and I have my own financing. Bad news, waited too long, was 3.99, now 4.25, but that is for new, used. Looks like GM is 5.9 for a special deal.

Anyway, wanted to wait to Dec 05 and get a great end of year deal, but would like one now(yesterday). Any idea if GM will increase incentives due to current financial difficulties?

Thanks, maybe a long post, just like SSRs for the last few years, I have a PT cruiser, but now everybody does, so wanted something better.

Go for it, Willi

You'll love the SSR, and I wouldn't wait till December - why lose one entire summer of joy? Most of us who bought early and paid a bunch more wouldn't trade last summer for any discount.

Based on selling prices on EBay and discussions on this site, I would think the 30K range is pretty fair for a very low mileage SSR. 38 K is definitely high.

Seems very high since you can get a 05 with 390 6.0 HP motor for 43k, and a 04 new for low 30k with the small motor.

I just got mine last week and feel I got a good price, especially here in CA where I've seen dealers offering them at higher prices. My used 2004 Ultra Violet has 9K miles, fully loaded with the 6-CD changer, heated seats, etc., custom floor mats, lining and wood grain cargo area, side storage units in the bed, and running boards. The owner was meticulous and the car is absolutely cherry without a single dent, scratch or sign of wear. Those were 9,000 very careful miles. He traded in on a Slingshot 2005 and the dealer wanted the 04s out so he can sell 05s. I ended up getting it for $28,500 and with tax lic, etc, it was $31,000 out the door. A new 2004 Slingshot was going for $39,000 and it wasn't loaded with all that extra stuff.

I love my Barney!
