Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Chevrolet SSR Owner Comments

problem #2

SSR 8-cyl

  • 10,500 miles


Ssr is parked in driveway in Nov 07. Receive approx two inches of rain, Ssr leaked in floor on passenger side. Approx 1 1/2" of water in floor. Took to check dealer, dealer outsourced problem. Was told there was a crack in "a pillar". resealed pillar, problem solved. Received three inches of rain in Apr 08, Ssr leaked in floor on passenger side. Approx 2" of water in floor. Took back to Chevy dealer, dealer outsourced problem. Told leak is different problem, told car door had two sided sticky adhesion which was not sticking to door, repaired. I don't believe this solution sounds correct.

The convertible top continues to has issues. The dealer has replaced the seals at least 4 times, adjusted the windows 6-8 times. Chevy offered to make a payment for me but the problem continues. I have also complained about wind noise and leakage since day one.
