How many of the SRX body parts are composite? Sounds like the hood and front doors are when you knock on them!

The hood is aluminum. Come to think of it, there's a lot of aluminum in the SRX: hood, block, control arms, etc. and some composite components as well I think. Still, I always understood that the door panels were steel.

I'm surprised that those panels wouldn't be composite given that the Corvette body is all composite and various other GM vehicles like Camaro there close to the end had the hood and doors out of that material.

I'm pretty sure that only the front an rear bumper surrounds are composite. I think that comparing the SRX to the Corvette and Camaro is a bit of a stretch.

Saturns are made out of composite so they've stretched pretty far!
