I really like how my 07 SRX roof opens up huge so that even the second row seats have open air over them. In the summer I ride even on the freeway with huge sunroof opened all the way, we enjoy the open air and feel. But with the new SRX the thumping is very disturbing to me even at city driving speeds…the only way to get the noise down is to open a window a little bit. Disappointing that GM didn’t work on a better diffuser or other aerodynamic trick.

    My '01 Accord coupe's moonroof could only open a small amount because the car's swoopy roofline didn't have a lot of area. The last SRX had a nice, large canopy. The new SRX seems to have a lot less roof area, probably limiting the amount it can recede...

    ON Friday, I picked up an Ebony Luxury model, FWD, with the upgraded Boae , and rear entertainment system. I have about 180 miles on it, it is a wonderful vehicle, well built.

    I traded in a 2006 DTS III, I am really enjoying this Caddy so far, if you are interested, I urge you to test drive one and compare I did.

    Maybe so...but the 2008+ CTS has turned that around. Highest resale values according to KBB.

    I ordered my 2nd Gen SRX on Sep 3, 2009. Still not here as of today. It should be here within the next week or so. I am anxious to get it. I ordered the Premium with everything except the DVD. Black on Black.

    Agree. Let's start one.

    Barry--your new SRX is a beauty! (Hope you didn't get sand inside!)

    I have a question about the DVD option. Will the radio play DVD movies, or do you have to get the DVD upgrade including rear screens?
    If you do need the upgrade, can you then watch DVD movies on the pop up display?
