    Rear AC Question

    Hey guys,

    We are looking for new vehicle for the wife. Currently she is driving my 2000 Tahoe. Primary reason is it has rear AC that comes out of the ceiling. Does the SRX have this feature? I know the Denali's and Escalades and Tahoes do, but we are looking for something a little smaller. The AC from the roof is kind of a key factor, as when we put the kids in there with the rear facing car seats, it is the only way to keep them cool here in Phoenix.

    Any input, or pictures is much appreciated.

    Just utilized this yesterday.....


    Set the front to 'aux' and let the kids modulate their own temperature in the rear with the second dial. Worked like a charm

    ok, so my kids love this feature, but why don't they vent the hot air through the rear ducts too?? they freeze in the winter back there. My CTS has rear ducts that blow whatever air you want through them.

    Its likely to due with the logistics of the AC compressor, which is mounted in the drivers left rear quarter.

    From the front, it only ducts through the floor vents to the back. If the kids are cold in the back, be sure to use the floor setting once all your defrosting is done.

    Re: Rear AC Question

    It makes a huge difference. I had an STS, and it was in the center console, and actually having it turned to cool made a difference in the temperature of the cab.

    I sold the STS because for a full size sedan, the back seat wasn't very accommodating of a car seat.

    We are looking for an SRX now, especially since it has the ceiling vents We have seen a couple on CL. There was one that we missed on Sunday that sold right before I called about it that looked great. Oh well, soon
