    Well, FWIW, our 05 SRX V6 has no water in the jack compartment (thank goodness) and we live where it rains all of the time. I can't understand how the headrests fit into that little compartment.

    The head rests must be stored with the front of the rest facing up with the rods to the rear. Open the cover and insert the head rest posts through the slats in the storage area. Push the rods rods to the rear and then push the head rests down and into the storage tray.

    I think it's not water in rear jack compartment anymore - IT'S FLOODED REAR JACK COMPARTMENT. 2" OF STANDING WATER-UNBELIVABLE.
    Attached pics show the condition after it was draining for some time. Car's at the dealer today.

    MJK those photos absolutely sickened me. I love my SRX and would be devestated if that happened. Brings back bad memories of trunk leaks in my 79 Trans Am back in the day.

    I hope it really was a bad liftgate seal. Got the car back yesterday with new carpet in the back compartment. I think I'll be checking it every time it gets wet.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    If I remember right some of these vehicles that are getting water in them are the same vehicles when new were having problems with rear hatch handle sticking and also breaking when you tried to open then there was a TSB that told dealer to change striker position so handle on hatch would work without breaking or sticking ,but in moving striker hatch will not seal properly . So in doing this they created a leak when really the handle should of been made properly. So now we have leaks because problem wasn't handled properly believe my there are alot of these vehicles out there with water damage in them that should be looked at.

    I'm glad you and the company you work for are perfect. Maybe you should come work for us. Then we could close this harbor for negativity down.

    Does your state have a Lemon Law? If they failed to fix the leak after three tries I would think you would be eligible under that.

    My dealer thought the problem was originally a spill, but no, after a new jack and carpet the space was wet again.

    I had enough issues (over 18 different ones on this 2004) for THREE SRX by-backs if I wanted to do the lemon law! Unfortunately, my nature is to try to fix things, the V8 would NOT have been available as a replacement without roof at that time like mine is, and I generally like the design philosophy behind the car.

    LOOK at the latest Consumer Reports on the SRX, pitiful, way below average on almost all, nearly all black. Horrible that GM squandered such potential, if only...

    Three best SUV crossover awards in the press and you still cant sell enough because the word gets out that its quality/reliability is way below average for the industry.

    So very sad for GM, for America…

    In fact this should be a recall as the jack will become inoperable after several years of water in the space. Nice, you are stranded out with a flat and your jack is seized, THINK ABOUT IT GM…

    Sorry about your misfortunes, but then I wouldn't drink from the overrated Consumer Reports' Kool-Aid either. They just cater to their subscriber base, mostly Toyondasan owners.

    Don't see the toyoda recall rates getting better. Steering wheels falling off, brake problems, engine problems, and shattering windshields. I have better chances playing Blackjack.

    The tides are turning, so far GM stock are doing great this year.

    Interesting. My rear hatch handle has always been tough to operate, but I know to use the correct side of the handle. I have lived with it, and my rear compartment has stayed dry.
