Had 2004 GMC Denali before this I got my 2005 SRX V6 AWD - Likes: ride / drives well, looks great. Dislikes: city mileage is only about 14.5 MPG. I do not like the wide door stills! It's very hard to get into and out of the vehicle without getting dirt on your pants. This is not good! On the first weekend, I washed the vehicle and had a major water leak in the left upper corner of the windshield and ran down onto the dash, nice for new car. But they did fixed it! Why a 3:91-1 final drive (ratio)? RPM is approx. 2,300 - 2,400 at 70 MPH.
SRX looks and the White Diamond paint job.
Reduce the door stills. But, they can't do it, with re-doing the complete vehicle. So be it! Better gas mileage! Reduce the rear axle gear ratio for the 3:91-to-1.
