    QuestionMRC - no added blue book value?

    So, just messing around looking at SRX values on - it seems that Magnetic Ride Control adds no value to the used car price, with or without MRC is the same? Does that sound right?

    Also interestingly, the 3rd row seating on a 2006 is one of the most expensive upgrades, adding ~$1,000 to the blue book used value. Way more than the V6 to V8 upgrade, 2WD to AWD, Towing Package, Premium Wheels, etc. fwiw

    Funny that was a conversation at Thanksgiving Dinner, everyone was talking about 3rd row seats in a vehicle and how many can fit. I guess the more the merrier for now, soon everyone will be interested in something else besides 3rd row seating.

    I insisted on buying a model with third row. We've honestly only used it a handful of times.

    We welcomed our third child last week, and I have them sitting three abreast in the middle row. There area many vehicles that do the third row much better than our srx's.

    I see us using it more when the kids are grown a bit and we don't need to wrestle with the car seats.

    I've used mine only a couple of times now..

    the 3rd row is nearly useless for anyone taller then 4 foot.
