    Re: Anyone drive the SRX Turbo yet?

    From the manual:

    TOUR: Use for normal city and
    highway driving. This setting
    provides a smooth, soft ride.

    SPORT: Use where road conditions
    or personal preference demand
    more control. This setting provides
    more “feel”, or response to road
    conditions through increased
    steering effort and suspension
    control. Transmission shift points
    and shift firmness are also
    enhanced.

    Within Sport Mode there is a
    further performance feature
    called Performance Mode Lift
    Foot (PMLF) Mode. The feature
    is activated automatically when
    sports oriented driving is
    detected, based on cornering
    and on/off throttle application.
    PMLF allows the transmission to
    hold the current gear instead of
    upshifting when the throttle is
    lifted.

    To simplify everything, while in "D" move the shifter to the left. You'll see "Sport" displayed in the Driver Information Center (DIC) under the odometer reading. Leave it there. You don't have to do anything else. Only move the shifter back to the right if you want to take it out of Sport Mode or to shift into Park or Reverse.
    Simplified, Sube. Thanks.

    I am going to try that tonight. I'll see if I get more
    pep out of the vehicle at acceleration.

    If I like it, I'll constantly drive in that mode until
    I reverse or park.

    Re: Anyone drive the SRX Turbo yet?

    Tried out the sport mode last night.

    Definately better pep and a much smoother
    acceleration without feeling the vehicle is
    struggling to get up to speed.

    Haven't tried beating out anyone at the
    light yet. Will see how that works. I'm
    not a speeder by nature, but somehow
    I always get behind the guy that drives
    5 miles below the speed limit on the local
    roads.

    Definately will use the sport mode sparingly
    as I can see that it probably uses more gas
    while in operation.

    Thanks for the help with this feature, guys.

    Soooooooo, has anyone driven a 2.8T yet??????????????

    My dealer does not have any in stock yet. I am also looking to potentially order one as a replacement for my FE3 RWD CTS and am curious about real world driving for the TURBO model.

    It'll be interesting to see how the 3.0L in "Sport" mode compares to the Turbo in "Tour", for those trying to save a few grand and who don't want premium fuel.

    Sube,

    This may have been answered earlier....

    The Turbo doesn't take regular fuel?

    Silly you.

    You sound as though you actually expect a thread on a forum to stay on topic...

    NJRonbo,

    Yeah, I know. I think you misunderstood. I was referring to those who don't want to pay for premium fuel "with" the Turbo.

    Re: Anyone drive the SRX Turbo yet?

    Well I test drove the turbo yesterday and bought one on the spot. The driving experience is quite different from the 3.0. It feels like a different car power-wise. The power increase is very noticeable, the transmission is silky smooth and it just feels totally balanced.

    All I can say is if you are on the fence and not sure if the 3.0 is enough power for you, by all means wait until you get a chance to test drive the turbo. Then you can decide if the extra expense ($3k and premium fuel cost) is worth it to you. It took me all of 5 minutes behind the wheel and I was sold.

    My Platinum Ice will be here next week. YAHOO !!!

    Re: Anyone drive the SRX Turbo yet?

    I have no doubt the Turbo will probably be fun to drive. However, this (page 8-26) kind of scares me. If you need a "Fuel Economy Mode", what is the mileage like when this is turned off? With it turned on, seems like it will affect acceleration. The mileage with the 3.0L is already poor enough, but I've learned to accept that.

    Fuel Economy Mode

    The vehicle may have a fuel economy mode. When engaged, fuel economy mode can improve the vehicle's fuel economy. Pressing the eco button by the shift lever will engage fuel economy mode. When activated, the eco light in the instrument cluster will come Driving and Operating 8-27 on. See Fuel Economy Light on page 4-28. Pressing the button a second time will turn fuel economy mode off.

    When fuel economy mode is on:

    . The transmission will upshift sooner, and downshift later.

    . The torque converter will lock–up sooner, and stay on longer.

    . The gas pedal will be less sensitive.

    . The vehicle's computers will more aggressively shut off fuel to the engine
    under deceleration.

    Not me either.

    Just came as a bit of a shock since
    this is my first semi-SUV.

    God, do I love the ride of this baby.
    So much better than driving a lower-
    to-the-road car.

    Actually, me neither. Just making an observation. I'm not a "high" mileage driver anyway, so for me it's not really an issue. However, for others it may be.

    Either way, I'm still on .

    Smile Re: Anyone drive the SRX Turbo yet?

    Got mine on Friday after waiting 3 months, Platium Ice. Love it good power you can really tell the difference between normal, sport and eco modes. I have a feeling I will use sport most of the time. I got the Performance model and glad I waited for the turbo. Too early to tell about mileage but that is not why I bought it so far love the ride and performance. Now I just have to learn how to use all the wistles and bells it has.
