Marc, Since you are one of the General's employees I have an excellent idea for you to put in the Suggestion Box. As you are well aware, a lot of the early SSR buyers are a bit disgruntled (some more than others) with the way they were treated by GM. For the most part, we were guinea pigs. A lot of problems we incurred have been fixed, some haven't, and some changes and revisions incorporated on the 2005 model were a result of the problems we experienced. Then there's the 6.0 motor, now standard, that 2003 and 2004 owners couldn't get, and the now optional 6-spd. manual transmission. I don't need to mention the $ depreciation as it's been discussed in detail previously. I think it would be a nice gesture on the General's behalf to offer an extended warranty to the 2003 and 2004 SSR owners. A bumper-to-bumper GMPP 6 or 7 yr. 100,000 mile warranty would certainly smooth the feathers somewhat of the early buyers, some of whom were royally raped by greedy dealers that were charging thousands of dollars over sticker price. There were only roughly 18,000 (3,300 in 2003 & 15,000 in 2004) SSR's produced which is a drop in the bucket when compared to GM's total production so the expense to GM wouldn't be that great and the public relations benefit from that gesture would be PRICELESS! If they want to nit pic then give us a warranty that covers the retractable top and its parts, the tonneau cover, power windows, Bose radio and window antenna, and all other facets that are unique to the SSR. I really worry about the top and all those hydraulics and moving parts when the standard 3 yr., 36,000 mile warranty expires. It looks awfully complex and expensive to me. My wife has a Toyota Sienna van and when some of the Sienna's developed engine sludging problems and some trans-axle problems Toyota sent all Sienna owners a letter extending the engine and trans-axle warranty to 8 yrs. and 100,000 miles. A mighty fine move on Toyota's behalf. I expect no less from GM. I do think that many SSR buyers were first time GM owners and will probably NOT be repeat GM buyers as a result of their experiences. If GM would step up to the plate and provide us with extended warranties it would certainly be a positive move that should appease and please most of us early SSR buyers. What do you think of this idea?
