We've driven the SRX 3,000 miles since the purchase 45 days ago. 1/3 of it on a long trip; the remainder has been city driving. We use the speed control whenever possible and avoid 'rabbit' starts in stop and go driving. Both my wife and I have 50 years of driving experience, most of it with GM and Toyota vehicles. We have the six cylinder model and optional rear seats so it seats 7.
Driver comfort is excellent on long or short drives. The vehicle 'feels' good on curves at high speed and handles well in traffic. It provides a quiet ride and a quality (Bose) sound system.
City mileage is poor(15 to 16 mpg). While speed control is engaged, engine roars excessively on hills/grades to maintain speed as the tac bounces from 2,200 to 3,000 RPM. The baggage space is constrained when 4 people occupy the vehicle. Driver visability is poor.
