I took mine in to the dealership to get an oil change and radio (warranty) replaced. I was talking with my sales guy and he told me they were not ordering anymore SSR's from Chevy because they were not selling well. He had 2 red 04's and a sliver 05 sitting on his lot. I like the numbers being kept low and not too many of them on the road. This was at Courtesy Chevy in San Jose.

Gee. You think it might have something to do with the freakin' dealer's attitude's?
Us that have an '03 know very well what we went through.
Extra markups above MSRP, etc.
I think the dealers are the ones responsible for the truck not selling and it goes to show you that the buyer's aren't going to put up with for long which we now see by the good deals on '04's.
Most are doing the same thing on the C6 and if you wait they will come back to reality on those also.
So screw the greedy dealer and their worthless salesmen, let them sit there with their inventory and complain.
They created the whole mess and Chevy let them.
They will probably do the same thing on the HHR just as they did for the PT when it first came out.

Low numbers

The low production numbers is a mixed bag. While it may help the value increase due to the rarity relative to other vehicles, it will also create a problem for us when GM stops producing parts and the parts stores stop carrying anything for them (not that the parts stores have much now..). I also own a 40 year old chevy and since they made so many of them, I can still get most anything I want with a phone call or click on the computer. We can only hope that we will be as lucky with the limited numbers of SSRs out there.

Just food for thought - no more, no less.

dealers

Dropped mine off for some minor work the other day and asked the shuttle van driver what happened to the 7 or 8 SSR's they hac about a month ago. He said they traded 5 or 6 to other dealers for other vehicles.

I'm doing my share to get sales up :) Bought a '05 6-speed a week ago. If you work with dealer they will discount below invoice by $700-$1000. Just take your time and don't try to beat them up. Leave a couple of times and let them call YOU :) My dealer had 5 '05s and 3 '04s and he is dealing to move them. Also shop around but don't get into the "BUY IT NOW OR ELSE" that some dealer try, you don't want to deal with them.
