I fell in love with this car
immediately on taking a test drive.
The SRX handles more like a sports car
than a SUV. It hugs the road and
handles tight turns and winding roads
superbly. At the same time it is
extremely comfortable and quiet.
Positively the best driving experience
of any car I have everr owned.
The clutchless gear shifting system is
awsesome...combining the best of both
automatic and manual transmission
Dual and extended sun visors to provide
better coverage of both front and sides
simultaneously would be nice.
After one week and 1,400 miles, the
main computer failed and when I called
on-star,it took them two hours to find
out the tech on-call didn't have his
beeper. They had to page another tech
and he responded. The dealership
didn't have the part on hand and I had
to wait 3 days for a repair although
they did provide a loaner. Two weeks
later the computer started to reset
data on my radio, as well as the
onboard computer and they don't know
why. I'm certainly not a repeat buyer.
Third row seating
Provide the ability to use third row
seating with a key slot near the rear
so you don't have to keep runningtho
the front to put a key in the
ignition. Fix the blind spot onthe
drivers outside rear view mirror when
Overall, I have been very happy with my
SRX. I love the handling. My kids and I
really love the ultraview sunroof. The
dvd player in between the seats is
actually more kid-friendly in my
opinion, than those roof screens.
One complaint would be with opening the
hatchback type back door. It is fairly
heavy for me (a woman.)I feel like I
really have to give it a good pull to
unlatch it. It would have been nice to
have a remote control door opener
that "pops" it open. An interior driver
side button to "pop" the back door
would be nice also; something similiar
to a trunk release type feature.

or by remote
