My SRX V6 AWD just turned 10. It was an early build from Oct 2003.
(I've owned it since 2008 when I purchased it with 16,000 miles)
Total miles is now 56,000 (we have 4 vehicles and sort of use them for specific purposes).
Original brakes (still with decent pad thickness left)
Original tires (use snows in winter so probably about 40,000 on OEM) will need to replace in spring
Runs and rides really well
Consumes about 1 quart of oil between changes (I got that one good engine!!)
Paint and interior have held up very well
Excellent fuel econ for weight and awd
3rd set of cats (GM's nickel - worried about when it isn't)
Rear window washer plugged up, nozzle had to be replaced
Front strut blew out
Power steering leak (simple o-ring fix)
3rd battery (no big deal)
Uncountable number of DRL bulb changes
My intent is to milk another 5-6 years out of it, still looks good on the road relative to most new vehicles.
Thanks to all the contributors on here, I've definitely received a lot of good info and help!
My 2006 V-8 RWD is back in the shop at 36,000 miles with the infamous (for this vehicle( rear-end whine). New Drive Shaft, Totally rebuilt Differential, Rear Axle Seal replaced and the whine is still there.
