    Someone on some site said this will sell like the PT Cruiser, an instant hit.

    My Response: Yeah, It'll sell for about a month and everyone who bought it would realise their midlife crisis is over

    its so ugly, heavy, and oh so slow, sorry chevy, you lose.

    the only idea worse than Chevy thinking these will be a hit is the idea of someone using it as an actual workhorse

    A friend is a dealer and he had one availible for two weeks. He loved it, while I hated it.

    SSR is a pile of poopy and is pointless at the same time. the PT cruiser at least had versatility and probably has a better 0-60 time...

    I personally hate all these "retro look" cars; the PT Cruiser, SSR, T-bird etc.

    i think the whole retro design needs to grow on people, i eprsonally didnt think much of the cobra concept when i first saw it, it hough the headlights heeded to sit more vertically and stick out forward a bit more, but the more different angled shot i see of it, the more its growing on me

    i dont care for this truck. i wouldnt have a use for this, i think a truck should be a truck not some ooo look at me i got a convetible hard top with a retro style. besides all that, its way to heavy for its size (guess thats due to a all steel body) only thing i like is that they gave it a v8. i still think the s10 is better an dont know why they discarded it for this tom foolery of a truck.

    The S-10 isn't in this truck's league, and it is replaced by the Colorado/Canyon trucks. I think the SSR is something fresh, although the retro styling is not. I am disappointed that the 5.3 engine is in this truck while the 5.7 LS1(320/350hp), 6.0 (345hp), and LS6(400hp). The engine is the same engine that powers the extended cab Silverado. My father's truck: 2002 Ext Cab Silverado 5.3 cost about 28K. The SSR costs 40K, has the same engine, and 2 seats. I know there is some overhead for it being a luxury convertible, but, it is really underpowered for the cost. A Camaro SS can be obtained for less or a Corvette Coupe for nearly the same price.
    Stickers add horsepower. I promise.

    i've seen the ssr in person and in photos and i think it is the ugliest truck chevy has made in a long time
    it looks like those electric karts that came out a few years ago
    motor trend did another truck test recently and the quad cab nissan titan has a faster 0-60 and quarter mile than the ssr
    that just shows what a peice the ssr really is
