Browsing through E-Bay "SSR's for Sale" today and there are lots and lots of 2003, 2004, and 2005's for sale. A Chevy dealer (Ryan Motors) in Buffalo, Mn. has a brand spanking new 2004, Silver, listed at $32,500 Buy it Now Price. Dealer says he also has other colors for sale. This is about the best price I've seen thusfar for a showroom new SSR. Several 2005's listed for sale at invoice. This sure is a different market than it was a year ago when I was shopping for a new SSR. I'm really glad that I intend to keep my 2003 for a long, long time because I'd hate to take a $20,000 hit in just one year. That represents a 46% first yr. depreciation rate which is really high when compared to other new vehicles. Potential SSR buyers are really in a great position in this market place. Looks like GM over produced and over priced the 2003 and 2004 models. Hope they learned something from this and will take steps to prevent it from reoccurring.
