: Storage in doors

Just took delivery on a 2007 AWD SRX V6. The manual mentions storage compartments inside of each door that can be closed off. It also mentions you will see a button to open the latch to these compartments. The only storage I see in each door is a towards the bottom with no way to close them off. Is the book wrong or am I missing something?

GMJim: You sure have ugly interior colors on your SRX. Is that a GM employee special?

I just checked my 2 week old 07 srx and I don't have any storage compartment on the doors except for the pocket along the bottom...????? Did they delet this with the upgraded interior in an 07???

I just checked our new 2007 and there is no such storage compartment - only an open large pocket on each side. Must be something that was lost in the redesign.

I use mine for my sunglasses. The latch seems rather flimsy. I hope it holds out through the lease. Where do you folks with 07s put your glasses?

My complaint (storage wise) is the space I lost in the center console due to the rear seat DVD I didn't want.

Not there in our 2008 SRX V6 either, and information removed from Owner's Manual as well.

P.S. We put our sunglasses in the center console!

I really like that little door/compartment on my 06 b/c I thought the center console was a tad small.

BUT, I guess you lost those little storage areas and gained the dashboard "secret" contraption.

OK...you've peaked my curiosity. What is the dashboard "secret" contraption?

Probably this: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-srx-forum/117004-dash-panel-storage-box-broke.html

but now it's not a secret anymore.

I kept looking for the door storage compartment mentioned in the 07 manual and came to the conclusion it was another item decontented from the vehicle but not the manual!
