What DON'T you like about your SS?

Plenty of things to love about this car. But I thought a "hate" thread might be helpful for people thinking about buying one.

For me, I've only found a few things so far I'm not happy with.

1. Fuel economy. It's as bad as advertised. So far I've averaged 12.9 around town.

2. Loud turn signals. They were way quieter in my last car. For some reason these just annoy me.

3. No button to open the trunk from the outside.

4. No Homelink. (can be fixed but have to install it yourself)


So what bugs you about your SS?

... you know there is already a long thread with all these nit pickin' 'complaints'.

These kind of threads annoy the defecation out of me.

Did 'ya all not do your homework before buying?

If by "homework" do you mean drive a dozen different cars and spend countless hours online researching things for weeks? Then Yes, I did my homework.

But the point of this would be to help others do their homework too (those who don't have weeks).

Didn't see another similar thread, I must have missed it. But one nice thing about threads like this, sometimes there's a SOLUTION we didn't think of (like for the homelink).

My favorite is the too loud turn signal "clicker". Complain to the regulators !!!

The SS fills something that maybe another car was lacking, but now there is a HATE list?

Maybe not the best way to pose the question, just sayin.

I like how Zal alway gives CB a hard time. Lol.

The turn signal does sound like a Mac truck.
