    This Is A Great Modern Muscle Car/truck. It Is Tast Safe And Reliable — This 2005 SSR with the 6 Speed manual transmision is a blast to drive. The convertible top drops with only a touch of the button. The top drops into its own storage hidden between the seats and the cargo area. the top does not take up any room in the cargo area at all. Modern day muscle car

    Pros: This 2005 SSR is a blast to drive and gets lots of attention

    Cons: no back seat, will not hold a 4x8 sheet of plywood

    For A 2 Door Convertible Hot Rod It Is Great — It is what it is. a hotrod truck. That means poor gas milage, 2 seats, so not good as a family car. It is flashy so if you are speeding, along with everyone else, you get the Ticket. But as a weekend fun car it can be a blast and since so few were made, it never looks like an old car,

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast, Fun, Head turner

    Cons: MPG,

    Hot Car Needs Nice Weather — The first time I saw this car at the North American International Autoshow I thought "what an ugly car"... Years later I still feel the same way, when it's curb-side and the top is up. Top down on the road... it has to be one of the best cars I have driven even (Lotus, Ferarri, Corvette, Jeep, VW, Audi, BMW, Benz...) from say Kansas City to Detroit. This particular color always turns additional heads that the car alone doesn't (very few). I don't like the cheap plastic-y feel that Chevy did with the interior. I do like the sound system however. The trunk area is spacious but not huge. All in all I really do like this car. It's a great ride through the country or along a river during the warm months. The exhaust notes are particularly enjoyable late at night on winding roads.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Great highway and warm weather car

    Cons: Cheap plastic-y interior panels, attracts unwanted attention sometimes.

    It's Limited, Fast Fun, Cool And Different — The SSR is a true modern hot-rod. It is a whopping 6.0 liter V8 complete with navigation, and aluminum accents standard, you also get dual titanium exhaust out of the showroom. but there is a down side, how does 4500 pounds sound like?, yes though the truck puts out 450 horsepower, it weighs as much as a fully loaded workvan. With the option of traction control you can drift and slide in parking lots, or hang it all out on winding back country roads. This is a cool truck because Chevrolet only made 4000 a year for 3 years, making it a collectors item.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: eye catching, fast, and come on it's a convertable!

    Cons: POR QUE!!!, why soooo heavy.

    This Car Is All About Looks And Acceleration. It Is A Specialty Car, Not For Everyone — Acceleration=0-60 in 5.8 sec with 400hp. Braking & handling are very good. Build quality was not too good - several problems with doors, rattles, wind noise (probably due to retractable hardtop). People stop on the street to look at it. If you are worried about gas mileage, an SSR is not for you. Car is definitely fun to own & drive!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Perfomance, looks (& bnothing else looks like it)

    Cons: quality is only so-so, avg gas mileage is 14mpg

    Old Man Truck — This is a very nice truck (handles great/roomy interior) but it's definitely not for first time drivers. It can be a little hard to see around and has a couple more blind spots than a normal car or truck.

    Pros: Handles well, has the ability to turn traction control off for those burnouts ;)

    Cons: A little over priced. Inner door handles are made of plastic and need replacing more often than a regular car
