You're right about some of the changes. They are 2002 changes except the following and I have added some important ones.

2000'* have eight additional interior lights. Two in each door panel. 2001 have reflector only.
2000 & 2001 have a key in both driver and passenger front door. 2002 only has driver front door with a key.
2000 & 2001 have a covered dual cup holder for the front console. 2002 has an open cup holder.
2000 & 2001 have the heated seats switches mounted on the console next to the TCS and have a small storage pocket above the ashtray. 2002 have the seat switches and TCS located where the storage pocket was.
2001 have On Star exterior antenae. Pre May 2000 don't.
2000 chrome swoop wheels have flat center cap. 2001 have raised center cap.

The big difference. 2001 SLE takes on the same exterior bumper facia and panels as 2000 SSEi.

certainly no major differences, maybe minor changes, but no where near the difference between a SE and SSEi. Paul, can you elaborate to the difference?
