Where are all the Chevy SS Reviews? I see car mag reviews of the new Vette, new Camaro, new Spark, etc.

The **** cars on the boat on the way over here and still no car mag reviews/camparos/track times/etc.

Whats up with that? :dizzy:

Seems like Chevy is not promoting this car at all. If it is build as many as people order they don't seem to want alot of orders.

They don't have any production cars in USA yet only pilot cars. They over advertised the GTO and under advertised the G8GT so what's up with SS sedan only at NASCAR race's is anything being done.

As far as I know they didn't have any production Vettes or Camaros when they wrote the reviews for them. It seems they could of had some cars for reviews here already if they wanted.

Guess they didn't want.

they think the car will sell itself without any reviews. Since its limeted production people who will buy it know what it is because its based in a Pontiac G8. What they are not understanding is that G8 was much cheaper and there are other cars out there with simular or even better performance.

They do need to put some reviews out there ASAP, guess they weren't in a hurry to get cars out for that. I like that they are not trying to make a big deal about this car, I don't want everyone and their uncle owning one. Also a reason why I'm glad they're not putting out lower end versions of this car with a V-6 like Charger- you see too many of them. I don't want flashy, but there is something to be said about lower volume. BTW, my dealer still has not responded to my question on where my SS is that I ordered, so it's probably not on the first ship.

I find it funny that NASCAR got their SS sedan pacecars but yet they can't have one or two of them for U.S. reviewers to test out. It's just one more thing that shows how much Chevy cares about the SS

The cars you are seeing at NASCAR may not be what they are going to look like seating and such. One of the cars has a white interior also seats may change. So this maybe the reason for not allowing testing.

I think Chevy is expecting the SS to spread through word of mouth. After all, with such a limited production, they don't want that many people to be putting in orders. If you are on this forum then you are ahead of the game. I'm sure dealers will get a lot of questions about the SS once it arrives on lots.

You would think that the SS would have a review up though. It will eventually. We just have to wait (even longer.)

I believe that the 'right' move would be to get the personally ordered cars out on the streets and parking lots and highways to promote them and make people ask questions. Then maybe go to a dealer and sit in one, maybe order one. I am wishful thinking that all previous ordered cars are on the "ship". You know, get the cars out to be seen!!

The white leather interior is only on the Calais V you can pick them from the side by the chrome strip along to base of the doors
the sport series are all black.

After looking at a picture of the interior im not all that impressed with it. When it comes to white, i think it needs a seat pattern to help it look better.



it's just too plain for white

I think that Chevy, in the end, wants to sell cars and make money. If you flood the market with cars for sale, you have to reduce the price. i think they want to keep the price high and production low. That's one way to make good profits. Other method is to price low and sell a lot. I think once the SS enthusiasts buy the first set of cars, prices will come down as demand reduces. Then the true marketing will begin (magazine articles, ads, etc).
