About Chevrolet SSR

Combined the look of a customized 1950s pickup with the powertrain of a sports car, Chevrolet SSR was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division from 2003 to 2006 as a retractable hardtop convertible pickup truck. Originally introduced to compete against the Mazda B3000, Ford Ranger and GMC Canyon, SSR was a risk General Motors took to design a retro-styled pickup without good hauling or towing capacity. SSR in its name stands for Super Sport Roadster and it was the pace car for the 2003 Indianapolis 500. But due to tepid performance, early build quality problems, a high price and its overall impractical nature, the production of Chevrolet SSR ended on March 17, 2006.
Chevrolet SSR was built based on the mid-size SUV platform of the Chevy Trailblazer, its design idea comes from the wildly popular Super Sport Roadster concept car shown at the 2000 Detroit Auto Show. It was available in only one trim level and was equipped with a power-operated convertible hardtop, leather upholstery, power accessories, keyless entry and cruise control as well as optional audio system, heated seats and auto-dimming mirrors. During its lifetime, Chevrolet SSR was powered by a 5.3 L V8 rated at 300 horsepower and a 6.0 L V8 producing 400 hp. And engines sent power through either a 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.

Chevrolet SSR Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Though possessing an agreeable combination of handling, ride and performance, Chevy SSR is not that particularly useful for daily use. And if you happen to have one SSR, you need to pay more attention to these common problems on it:
First, engine failure and deteriorating engine failure caused by the cooling system are troublesome for Chevrolet SSR drivers. Engine failure is easy to understand, and it mainly results from wearing engine parts, but the cooling system failure could make all these worse. According to some SSR drivers, at first, engine only gives out noises, then it will perform roughly even stay at rough idle, but when the coolant starts to leak, and the engine keeps at a high operating temperature, the engine could lose power while acceleration and consume excessive oil to cause bad mileage. Thus, once both the Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light come on, please inspect the SSR oxygen sensor, timing cover, drive belt, spark plug, head gasket, cooling hose and intake manifold gasket immediately.
Second, multiple electrical issues are also very tricky to handle as Chevrolet SSR was equipped with many kinds of electrical parts to provide drivers with convenience. But due to a high frequency of usage of electrical parts, they are easy to be succumbed to wear and tear. According to the data from online repair statistics site CarComplaints.com, electrical problems begin to arise when the SSR reaches about 78,000 miles. Some said they have to press multiple times to roll the window up or down, slower or faster window speed and could hear clicking sounds from the door. Some complained about the faulty A/C auto model, inconsistent cooling and incorrect outdoor temperature readings. All these could be attributed to SSR window regulator and ambient temperature sensor.
But even though you know how to deal with above-mentioned issues on Chevy SSR, it is still difficult to make sure your driving is safe and comfortable. Performing routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your SSR, however, could decrease the possibility of fatal accidents effectively. Therefore, please maintain the emblem, headlight, door handle, wheel cover, windshield wiper, wiper blade, cabin air filter, antenna, and fog light as they all play important roles in creating safe and comfortable driving environment.
