I love my SRX. It's fun to drive, has plenty of power. The only problems I've had with it is cosmetic issues. My radio dash and door handles started to peel, delaminate. I had those replaced now everything looks new again, but did notice it will most likely delaminate again. Other than that, it's a joy to drive and seems very reliable so far.
Performance and handling. Large interior and seating. Nice leather.
Use higher quality plastic parts inside the cabin. Make it easy for someone to change the headlights.
