WELL SAID, Toy Truck!Toy Truck said:I'm not the least bit offended if someone refers to our SSR as a toy... especially if they're driving a generic P.O.S. All of our cars are 'toys' but they also serve as transportation. Ya' got to drive something.... why not drive something that's fun?
Don't worry about the detractors and 'nay sayers'.... They just wish they had your ride. There are things in life that I can't afford but I don't take that out on those that can. The ones I really worry about are those that don't have the 'strength of character' to go after what they really want. How many times have you heard someone remark, "I really like that red (or yellow) color but I couldn't drive anything like that". WOW... it's only a color. Who are these people, funeral directors?

No question in many folks’ minds the SSr is much more than a toy and not just a MLC, you just have to think out of the box a bit as we did when I went with a buddy last week to order his new C6…. I asked him:
• Where do you put your 3 sets of golf clubs;
• How easy is the C6 to get in and out of (he is an former Olympic skier and you can imagine what his knees and hips are like);
• Don’t you agree the creature comforts of the SSr are more than fine (he did expect automatic temp control);
• What about all the stuff your g.f. insists on bringing for even a weekend at the lake cottage (no way in anything but a small p/u or larger);
• How do you tow your boat (don’t ask me I can only tow one at a time and it's mine);
• Like the C6 it only has two seats but you don’t have to pay extra for the non-manual top;
• Is the new LS2 motored SSr a dog versus most anything on the road;
• Exclusivity…. It is a rare beast despite more than 18,000 made (but not sold) to date…. There are already C6’s all over and the prices are falling;
• Great to drive to work, if you need to, & most clients love to have a ride and then remember you (i.e. good for business?);
• What do you think about the fit and finish (superb, thank you LCC :cheers ); and
• Have you checked things like gas mileage and insurance > not bad at all which make the SSr a practical choice too
Reality check is that the SSr is a far more reasonable beast to own than many of us who bought it just for fun might like to think…. But you do have to deliberate for a moment but really not all that long because the argument is there. arty Particularly now that you can buy a well equipped ‘03/’04 for $35k new with long term no cost financing!
Thank you Randy!
BTW, he ordered an '05 SSr....
I must say that the quest to satisfiy the SSR owners from GM is far more less than the C6 owners. I would like to ask the Corvette owners who try and convince us SSR owners that we bought a sports car instead of a sport truck a few things. First of all we all have the common sense to know the difference. Do you have wind noise with the top up and the doors closed?, Do you have windows that will not go up under the weather stripping?, Do you have a rear end that whines when you decelerate?, Do you have a trunk that will not open without pulling it up?, Do you have windows that are scratched because the rubber seals do not have felt on them like "EVERY" car made on the planet has?, Do you have drink holders that will not come out of the dash each time you push them?, Do you have unbearable road noise from the holes behind the seats that corvettes don't have? Do you have the deployed air bag light and message showing all the time? Do you have GM reps saying that they never had any other complaints like this? Well it is quite simple, I paid nearly $50.000.00 for my SSR and I expect not to have the defects that we are having. It seems that GM did not prove the SSR as they did the C6. So why should we expect less. If you are one of the very small percentage that has a trouble free SSR and is 100% satisfied, then pardon me! I love my SSR, but hate knowing that the amount of complaints I have seen and read on this forum has warranted no recalls or upgrades to solve any of these issues. It isn't as though GM has made 10's of thousands of these autos. Probably the least production car on their inventory with the least attention to correcting some very simple mistakes. How much would you say that felt cost on the window seals? Maybe 50 cents or less? And how much for the continued replacement glass. $300.00 each?pherrley said:Life is too short if it makes you smile who cares what others think...
