Picked up my Tubro yesterday. After spending most of yesterday programing the car I took it for a 200 mile run today. Very smooth and quite, great power and handling and the seats are great. Having coming from a 2008 CTS I really appreciate the headroom and interior volume. This is a car you will enjoy on long hauls. :thumbsup:

Great, hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy our SRX. We too had an 08 CTS, and while it was a great car, the seats just didn't provide enough room for me, plus the extra headroom is great.

Don't forget to break it in righ n' hard ! . Oh and when you turn the 'trac' off you get a noticeable boost in power ! ...The leg room in the srx still amazes me. More leg room in the front than in the escalade it seems

lol, also if you hear the turbo whining than you have to go to the dealer and check for air leaks. The turbo system on this car is dead quiet, actually turbo's make cars quieter than non-turbo's so the turbo srx is a very very quiet running vehicle.

Your Right, I never had a Turbo before. When I kicked it down I was expecting to hear a whin, but it was dead quiet with a rush of power and no lag.
