How long does it usually take if the dealer has to goto the factory to order the vehicle? I have ordered the Prem and its been 7 weeks already.

Usually 6-8 weeks. There can be a longer delay if something is on constraint (hopefully it isn't a paint constraint).

Call your salesman tomorrow and ask him to check to see if the your order has been preferenced yet. He should be able to tell you where it is in the GM build system. He may be able to tell you the SRX was built last week (hopefully) if so when will it be shipped. Since it is made in Mexico it might take upwards of 7-10 days to get to your dealership depending how long it takes to come thru to Canada.

Yea Tolson, i had mine ordered too. Once the dealer got allocation (took them two months from the day i actually ordered), it arrived in 5 weeks from its actual order "production accepted" date, to the dealer lot. Ordered from Brandon, MB. :D

All the best!!

Do a walk around, check the air pressure (from dash..... they all seem to come with 40 freakin- lbs!!) and drive her home!! Ya lucky guy!

Come back soon with impressions, please.

Congrats!!

I remember the day I picked up my baby... it was great... her birthday is 6/5, so she's 1 year old and no problems at all.
Hope you have the same luck!!

SS - where you running your tires? Dealer keeps puttin 37-38 lbs of nitrogen when I'm in for service... I got the 20's

LOL I don't use nitrogen as it only helps a limited number of rim leaks and such..... not much else. Doesn't hurt either because the air we breathe is already 78% nitrogen!! For free. "


ok I wanted a softer ride from these 20" but know excessive wear and heat danger (blow-outs) can result from going too low in air pressure. So some experimentation yielded: I run 33 PSI COLD (2 lbs less than Caddy recco- not tire manufacturer recco) at all 4 corners, for my wife and I, just about town with an occassional 10 mile highway sprint up to 65 MPH. If I take a longer highway trips, especially with cargo or 4 people on-board, or intend to go over 65 MPH, back to 35PSI COLD. Remember "cold" means car sat about 6 hours (overnight is better) and if needed, driven a max of 1 mile to a service station for air. On the highway 36/39 PSI HOT pressure is normal, depending on air temps, your speed, etc. Too many variables, so cold reading preferred.

Expect 10% more tire wear with the 33 PSI setting.

Note: If prolonged 100MPH speeds are anticipated, go to 38PSI COLD! Your ride will suffer but the tires will stay on! The max pressure allowed on our 20" tires is 44PSI cold. Don't ever go above.
