    Understanding srx engineering

    Understanding SRX Engineers

    Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    SRX engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have
    enough features yet.

    I thought that was the story behind BMW's i-drive.

    Re: Understanding srx engineering

    My SRX drives very well, too good to sell it soon. HOWEVER after warranty: All four camshaft position sensors replaced, yaw sensor replaced, steering wheel position sensor replaced, tail gate stuts replaced - problem still present when cold. Vehicle virtually eats brake rotors, front AND rear. Spark plugs are critical and need to be replaced very carfully, tend to slightly crack during install resulting in misfire under light load. Latest news: power steering pump, water pump and one rear shock to be replaced. What should I say?

    Do you have a V6 or N*V8?
    We have seen none of your problems on our 2005 N*V8 RWD!
    Did you acquire your SRX new or "pre-owned"?
    If pre-owned, miles & service ops when you acquired?
    Thanks in advance

    SRX engineers have nothing on the folks who engineered the Allante.

    robhersch: I purchased it from GM, has been a company car, had about 30K mls, everything (bulletins aso) was performed before I got it. It is a LH2 (A) / AWD unit.
    Okay, driving habits here in Good Old are a bit different... more stress and strain for the drivetrain...

    Re: Understanding srx engineering

    This is why I lease instead of buying Cadillacs. I am hoping that they will continue to lease but am doubtful they will give them away.
    I am only paying $367 a month for my '07 V6.
    Equivalent MB is about $599.
