    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Well... When I went to pick her up... the dealership only replaced the Cover of the rear washer.. so that wasn't quite fixed yet, and I had to take her back.

    Good thing though, because while they had it parked in the low for the passenger trim to dry, the trim at the top of the windshield cracked ... so they have to fix that as well.

    Also. since the last work on the roof, she started rattling really bad - - dealer to replace from bolts and shoes to fix that.

    So stats get updated:

    76. Trim in front of sun roof fail… (10th Time) (Replaced May 19th/14)

    77. Sunroof Bolts and Shoes Fail… (2nd Time) (Replaced May 19th/14)

    I'm having a really hard time keeping those plastic roof pieces from braking. I'm wondering if some welds in the frame weren't missed, letting my SRX flex more then others.

    Also - - predicting a future problem.. she has started showing to demonstrate 2 symptoms that I suspect to be repairs in the near future... ... ...(1: When I am stopping, right before I come to a stop there is a very substantial "THUNK" in the tunnel.. and I get this same "THUNK" when accelerating out of a 10 second or longer coast. and (2: When making a right turn and accelerating, I get a heavy buzzing vibration, and messages "Service Stabilitrak" "Service Brake Assist" "Service Stability System". They go away when you restart the car, and no codes show up on scan.

    Trip to FL is coming soon! Whooo Raahhhh..

    Thunk sounds like differential support bushing, should be able to tell with car on lift. Buzzing is ABS responding to speed sensor incontinence. I'm surprised you don't have pending DTCs.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    repnatl: man, I hope you don't have enough issues, to have a list to compare! :-)

    Glake89: I suspect the Buz/Errors to be a Steering Wheel Position Sensor. Given time, I am sure I'll get some codes - which is what I am waiting for.

    And I suspect my "Thunk" to be a stretched transfer case chain... I figure in due time, that will make itself known for sure.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Most times a code has to be present at least 2 times before the MIL is turned on. If the activity doesn't repeat itself for 2 or 3 drive cycles the pending code goes away. Therefore, if you can get the car to buzz twice in the same drive cycle. the code should set the MIL.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    More...

    So... made a trip for Florida, which caused a few more issues.

    The Rear Wiper, would fall below the window, and crease the wiper blade... Dealer inspection found the wiper motor bearings failed allowing the wiper arm to drop. So they replaced the rear wiper motor.

    Armrest in rear seat, mounting came unbolted.

    The little lock tabs that hold the drivers floor-mat in place, came off the floor. (Screws fell out!)

    And - the rubber trip in the drivers side front corner of the sunroof decided to deform itself. - - Replacement on back-order.



    78: Rear Wiper Motor Fail
    79: Rear Seat Armrest Mount Fail
    80: Floor-Mat Tab Fail
    81: Roof Seal Trim Fail.

    And the count continues.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Hi everyone!

    Well... from all that work on the rear stuff... the tabs on one of the panels gave way, and dealership had to replace the panel, because the original one kept falling off.

    And... The engine started sputtering and coughing on starts: issue was bad coils on #4 and #5.

    Items 82, and 83, resolved.

    Not counted - was the plastic roof trim above the passenger side was popping up - - I inserted some 3M Permanent Mounting Tape under it and mashed it down for a few hours with a heavy brick... problem solved.



    The things I am waiting to see finally full fail are:

    The random ABS and TC fail light still comes on, but I am no where near a dealership when it happens, and it always clears on restart, and there are no codes in memory. Such - dealership can't fix what the computer doesn't report. (How did we do things before computers ????? )

    and, the random horrible loud 1 or 2 second Burrdrrdrrrr noise on stops and take-off still happens, but the mechanics can't seem to get it to do it for them. ( I assume is related to my above statement.)

    and, my random loud THUNK that you can hear and feel when transitioning from decelerate to accelerate, or during long stops, is still there. Like the transfer case chain has too much slack in it.

    My 2008 must have been built on a good day. Only issues since new Coil pack went bad, Power steering hose leaked and replaced the tires due to age. 36500 mikes. Think I will keep my fingers crossed

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Agree w that! Mine is pretty strong as well (hate the gas mileage...have never seen 21 mpg), and we got 62K out of the factory tires and only needed to change the rear brakes at 85K (fronts done twice). I'd say many design and engineering aspects of the Gen I SRX are world class, but sadly many of the little things related to fit and finish aren't.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Hi gang...

    Hey... I made it just a tad over a month this time!

    So... I just picked Humpty up...

    #84... Burned out amber bulb, Drivers Side... (Man I am glad those are warranty items.)

    #85... NAV unit decided that the NAV DVD was not a NAV DVD every time you start the car... Dealership replaced entire radio.

    Picking her up, I noticed the Storage Unit (Ash Tray) mounting is all messed up... so I'll have that worked on her next time in.

    and, she needed an Oil Change, so I had that done. Elco charges $66.76 for that... is that a good price?

    I think that price is not bad if they are using Mobil 1 or some other full synthetic oil...

    Yes... Mobil 1 is exactly what they use.
