2006 soon out of warranty
I put my 2006 RWD V-8 SRX, just turned 43K in the shop for an Oil, Air Filter, Cabin Filter service.
At the time I told them to check for a leak that would cause a burnt oil odor, much like a leaking Valve Cover Gasket.
Sure enough they found the Valve Cover leak and will change it.
My warranty runs out Sept. 5th on time but nearly 20K left in miles.

Re: 2006 soon out of warranty
I have new valve cover gaskets, fresh oil, fresh filter, fresh cabin filter and as of Sept. 5th, no more warranty.
I think she is in good shape and hopefully will serve me well for a few thousand more miles.
The car is still a stunner at 8 years old and 43k miles, black on black.
