: 2011 SRX tilt-telescopic lever difficult to work

The lever that locks down the steering column is almost impossible to lock. It takes nearly all my might to do it. My friend's 2010 CTS appears to have a similar setup but his locks relatively easy.

Is my situation common among other SRX owners, or do I need to have it looked at?

It should take a little oof, but not strong arm might to lock it... but it should only lock in spots where its meant too. Ei: you don't have the free range of millimeters to move it, the slots are about a centimeter apart for settings.

Now I didn't know that. I have noticed that in some places it locks easier than in others.

I plan on taking it in for a scheduled oil change next weekend. I'll have the service department take a look and see what they think.

Thanks for the reply!
