Great highway cruiser with plenty of style. Very cool. The retractable hardtop is quick and easy to operate. The cargo area is secure and water tight. Right after buying the SSR, we took a 3000 mile road trip and averaged 20.6 miles per gallon which is better than the rating for the vehicle.

A Cool Car look that is fantastic styling excercise. The fold down top is over-the-top. The all aluminum V8 is great and keeps the front end from being too heavy.... better front-rear balance. The automatic is a bit clunky. The heaviness is overcome by the power and pick up is great.... I have an SRT-10 (Viper 510HP) engine to compare with it. More like a car than a truck but if they say it is a truck then its a truck (but not really). A work of Art it is. -Richard

I had a BMW M3, which was a great car but the trunk is too small for my road bike even w/ the front wheel removed. So I wanted another performance car that could accomodate my TREK bike. I looked at many models from several companies, read the +/_ reviews and chose a low milage SSR. It's not as fast as I thought it would be because it's so heavy. Also with so much weight in front, handling is not in the BMW league but is certainly much better than average. Brakes are excellent as well. Moreover, it's a very comfortable ride over PA's very pot holed roads; the seats are superb. The Bose sound system is terrific as well and the fold down top is still an amusement when it's warm out. The A/C works well also. in sum, we're very happy w/ the truck.

by from Tracy, Ca on July 23, 2010

We needed a shop truck my wife can tool around in to make deliveries and still be something she enjoys as well. Our SSR works very well for this purpose.

Great fun car, serves many purposes for me

by from El Dorado CA on December 3, 2007

I use this car all the time for fun and work, the pick up is a great space for me since I do a lot of shopping and gardening. Fun to drive and so far no trouble at all.

Cars.Com provided an excellent selection of cars available nationwide. Opportunity to compare vehicles / prices / mileage / colors / options from the comfort of my home. Narrow the selection process down to just a few cars and then economize my time when I decided to look at them. Process was painless and provided the opportunity to select exactly the vehicle I wanted. Great website.

Nice car, fun to drive, handles well, quick, smooth, well built, and reliable. Great with the top down very little wind noise or buffeting, Bose system is great, electronics are good, sound is better that any MB or BMW i've ever heard. wished it had bluetooth phone, a nav system, and a ipod hookup.
