Read much about the lack of pick-up in t enew SRX. My suspencions are these are previous V-8 owners (massive SUVs). The car is great, corners great (beats our Pilot), interior is well designed and the CRV is such a joy to drive. So much technology, still learning after 1100 miles. By the way, stomp on the gas and the SRX does take off without hesitation. It's a CRV not a Vette!
