4/29/2012 – TOLEDO, OH

I BOUGHT A 2004 CHEVROLET SSR IN FEB.11, 2010 WAS A USED VEHICLE NO WARRANTY. TEST DRIVE WAS OK EVERYTHING WORKED AS EXPECTED. I STARTED NOTICING THAT I WAS GOING SLOWER THAN MOST CARS AROUND ME. I CHECKED WITH A FRIEND WHO DROVE BESIDE ME. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE SPEEDOMETER WAS OFF 10 TO 15 MPH.

I CONTACTED CHEVROLET DEALER ABOUT PROBLEM IN MARCH 2010. I NEEDED TO DROP OFF MY TRUCK FOR A DIAGNOSTIC TESTING. IT WOULD TAKE 24 HOURS OR 5 TO 7 DAYS AT $150 PER HOUR TO DETERMINE PROBLEM. THE PARTS REPAIR LABOR TO FIX.

I SAID THAT WAS OUTRAGEOUS. PLUS NO TECHNICIANS IN AREA WERE TRAINED ON THE SSR’S ELECTRONICS. I CONTACTED GM FOR HELP. SERVICE REQUEST #71-982295330 THE PROBLEM I WAS EXPERIENCING WAS NOT INCLUDED IN RECALL.

NO 2003 THROUGH 2006 SSR’S WERE REPORTED TO BE HAVING ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER. THE DEALER FOUND NO PROBLEM WAS NOT REPAIRED. I HAVE BEEN PUTTING UP WITH THE PROBLEM USING TACHOMETER AS A GUIDE TO SPEED. THE FIRST TIME I START TRUCK IT SEEMS TO BE JUST A FEW MILES PER HOUR OFF. BUT AS I GO THROUGH START CYCLES IT GETS TO BE MORE MPH OFF.

IF VEHICLE SITS OVER NIGHT. 12 OR MORE HOURS. IT SEEMS TO RESET ITSELF. I WAS OUT TODAY 4/29/2012 FOR A DRIVE. I WAS PULLED OVER BY A POLICE OFFICER ON RADAR GOING 67 MPH IN A 55 MPH ZONE.

I CHECKED MY SPEED AT THE TIME WAS GOING 55 MPH. THE OFFICER LET ME OFF WITH A WARNING TO PARK VEHICLE TILL IT IS REPAIRED. NOW WHAT DO I DO? CHEVROLET DOES NOT HAVE A RECALL ON THIS VEHICLE MANY PEOPLE THAT I KNOW ARE SSR OWNERS HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEMS WITH INSTRUMENT PANEL GAUGES.

IT IS A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH SSR OWNERS. BUT AS I WAS TOLD. MOST HAD IT REPAIRED AT THERE OWN EXPENSE.

NOW I HAVE A TRUCK WITH A INACCURATE SPEEDOMETER NO PLACE TO GET REPAIRS DONE BY EXPERIENCED MECHANICS. I NEED MY SPEEDOMETER FIXED AT GM CHEVROLET EXPENSE.

SEAT BELTS

THE CONTACT OWNS A 2004 CHEVROLET SSR. THE CONTACT STATED THAT ONE OF THE SEAT BELTS HAD BECOME INOPERABLE. THE CONTACT ORDERED A REPLACEMENT SEAT BELT BUT ONCE IT WAS RECEIVED, HE NOTICED THAT THE SEAT BELT WAS ROLLED BACKWARD AND EXHIBITED AN ABNORMAL TWIST. THE MANUFACTURER WAS CONTACTED WHO ADVISED THAT THE SEAT BELT HAD TO BE INSTALLED BACKWARD IN ORDER FOR IT TO OPERATE CORRECTLY.

THE VEHICLE WAS NOT REPAIRED. THE FAILURE AND THE CURRENT MILEAGE WAS 20,000. UPDATED 5/11/12 THE CONSUMER STATED THE PLASTIC GEAR WAS DEFECTIVE. A NEW SEAT BELT WAS ORDERED.

HOWEVER, IT WAS DISCOVERED THE NEW BELT WAS TWISTED. TWO WEEKS LATER, A NEW BELT ARRIVED AND IT WAS ALSO TWISTED. UPDATED 05/23/12

EXTERIOR LIGHTING

I HAVE BEEN ADVISED BY THE ORANGE COUNTY SHERIFF TO REPORT THE HEADLIGHT COVERS ON MY 2004 CHEVROLET SSR ARE MELTING FROM THE HEAT OF THE HEADLIGHT. THEY HAVE TOLD ME THAT THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD THAT THE MANUFACTURER NEEDS TO ADDRESS. I HAVE SPOKEN TO CHEVROLET BUT THEY SAY MY VEHICLE IS OUT OF WARRANTY.

I HAVE DRIVEN MANY VEHICLES IN MY LIFE FOR LONGER PERIODS OF TIME AND HAVE NEVER HAD THE HEADLIGHT COVERS MELT. PER THE SHERIFF, THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD AND THEY FEEL THAT THIS IS NOT JUST A SINGLE PROBLEM TO MY VEHICLE AND TO ASK FOR A RECALL. THANK YOU.
