I have an '06 on order but am shocked at the negative quality comments here. Is this just a case of the people who have problems speaking out or is there really a qualiy problem with these trucks?

I dont want a new truck that will always be in the shop. Will this be the case?

When I was in the service dept for the first time with my vette today and asked the service teck about the SSR he told me to stay away which was before I just read the negative comments.

Honestly, whats the story - im really only intrested in quality issues with 05 models and 06.

Thanks!

We speak openly about almost anything that is bothering us. Quite often, someone else has already experienced the problem and has found the cure.

We are a passionate bunch that don't hide anything. These open discussions could be mistaken for a lot of problems, but I think more that it is just good communication.

Don't let us scare you off. Dive one for a week. You'll be hooked.

Couldn't have said it better myself! :agree This is why these sites are put together to learn from not to badger. I have a 04. I know you have a 06 on order. If something happend to my 04 I would order a 06 right away! All vehicles have issues but not all of them are deemed undriveable.

I have had a few problems, but they pale in comparison with the joy of owning such a unique vehicle. They are irrelevant compared to the joy I get cruising with the top down and listening to that growl from the V8! Problems can be fixed. Perhaps you should drive one and find out for yourself. :thumbs

Well said, yes SRX we all have our issues with the truck, I don't think anymore than anyother vehicle has. We just have a place to compile it all and keep track of. Look around at the site and you'll see we all pretty much love the truck that Chevy finally built.

Top down, tunes up, foot on the gas!

SSR problems

I have had my 2005 for about 3 months and 1700 miles and the only problem so far is that the driver's side door handle started acting up on exit. It took 2 or 3 tries to get the door opened. I set the preferences to unlock doors when put in park and the door has been working fine so far. I hope i don't have to take it in for a new door panel as have some of the other owners. thanks, Ken

I have a Richochet Silver 05 auto, 1600 miles since June, not one problem. I have "displayed" the top up/down procedure many times. Also not been tender in driving it. Simply put the car is a beast, robust, very fun, very fast.

I have a 2005 6 Speed and no problems to date, but then again I am changing so much with it I dont think it will have a warranty any more. I am a Fanatic about this vehicle so dont be discouraged about your purchase.

What do you have on order (color, transmission etc.)?

My 05 has a loose nut behind the wheel.
Try some duct tape, and that should keep it in place. :thumbs

No real life threatening problems with my '05 Blur. And yes, I am damn glad I bought it. Let's be frank or anyone else you want to be,... with any car you will have some problems. Thank gawd you have a great bunch of nuts like these people to tell you what is going on, and to compile questions and answers.

I would say if you are already worrying about purchasing the SSR get something else. And if you can find a vehicle out there, which you have nothing to worry about (buyers remorse) please let us know what kind of car/truck that is. To date (47 yrs.) I have never heard of one. ;)
