    Have not heard anything; but many cars have had "delays" that were made in Mexico; hope they save alot of money doing it as some companies have had alot of bugs from manufacturing there!! They have to cover them immediately upon finishing so the foul air does not immediately start eroding parts and paint! Chrysler used to use good old fashioned Cosmoline on the Ramchargers built there..just like a grease;used by the military to store rifles and other gear in Salt air and other nasty conditions. I definitely don't want one of the first 100 they build!!

    I am pretty sure that is made up. They were supposed to be released in August and they are at dealers now. Sounds on time to me.

    There are always issues when you start a new process, no matter where it is or what you are doing. They have undoubtably been running SRX's up and down the assembly line for a couple months working out manufacturing problems. Some will still slip through and some design deficiencies will crop up, but they will get them fixed. There has never been a perfect product and never will be.

    Ahhh, A voice of reason...
    This is one of the first posts that I have read here that hasn't been derogatory towards the new SRX. How can someone put down a vehicle that they have not seen, or driven?
    We have seen it, and we have driven it, and we have ordered it!
    The dealer faxed me the window sticker today, and the car should be in this week.

    Please confirm that next week as another said production just started last week and they will probably hold units for quality control checks....they definitely don't need recalls coming off the Car Carrier like the Camaros.......that was really embarrasing........and people still paid 10K over sticker here for the first ones...lol
