GM won't move production to anopther plant: too $$$ - the SSR's days are numbered. Will the 2006 model production totals be more than the 2003's???crogan said:So if they close the lansing center, is it definate that the SSR is dead? can the move they production to another area?
Nah, it's just that the financial survival of the company is more important than the symbolism of a (poorly selling) halo vehicle.crogan said:So when the the GM chief said it was a halo vehicle and it is important to gm, was that just all lies?
Well, I do like my SSR, but with all the problems I have had with mine, I don't think I'd buy another GM for quite a while. They will never sell 100,000 HHR's. No way! A $20,000 HHR has shoes on the back. My CR-V has disk. Come on! GM's motto - spend a nickle save a dollar - caught up with them. Good old corparation mentality.kwhopper89 said:Ummm - NO.
The SSR did what they wanted - to have folks look at Chevrolet - and the OTHER new products. I think that the SSR is a big reason the HHR is selling so well. I don't know how many people I talked to that said they just couldn't afford a SSR, but loved the styling - I betcha those folks are buying the HHR!
GM/Chevy knew they wouldn't make money on the SSR - but rather wanted to stir up some interest - job done...

It is the turn key hot rod from the factory as promised and I would not be surprised to seem the resurect it at a later date when finances are in order. Then again, it should grow in value if they don't, but that really is not a concern for me. I plan on having a lot of fun with it for a very long time. These babies will be irreplacable.
I am sorry to hear you say that... I believe you will miss out in some outstanding GM vehicles along with their new products that are getting some great reviews coming out very soon.BigAlkin said:Well with all the problem I have had with my SSR and I do like it I will not buy another AMERICAN MADE CAR/TRUCK! PS GM will never sell 100,000 HHR's No way!

Looks like this is the end of the line for the SSR. I'm a reporter working on stories about this announcement and I'd like to hear from some people with strong opinions about the vehicle.
