I have always been loyal to GM. This time, I purchased instead of leasing so I drove everything, BMW, Volvo, Maxda, Acura and settled on the SRX. I couldn't be happier, the ride is beautiful, the inside "top notch" not like the Enclave which was my first choice after I traded the Buick Rendezvous. Rear seat leg room better than any car I test drove. I am 6 feet tall and the vehicle is very, very comfortable all the way around. The extra seating in the cargo is useless to me so those will always stay down.
The vehicle is very comfortable, handles well, it has AWD so big difference from the STS which he drove for 3 years and I sometimes drove but did not like. (he is now in the DTS)
Eliminate the chrome air vents, make them black, they reflect in both outside mirrors. Aside from that, to all of you who have negative comments about gas mileage buy a smaller car.
