    Correct me if I'm wrong, but here's a question:

    With the engine running and the transmission in Drive (and you are moving and let's say you also have your foot on the accelerator), can you shift to Neutral without applying the brakes?

    I have been able to do exactly this with every other car I've owned. If it's different on the SRX, what page in the manual covers this?
    This is all covered on pages 8-24 and 8-25. I saw the steps mentioned in my previous post in a news special. But according to the manual, you don't need to apply the brakes first to shift from "D" to "N". The shift lock only applies to shifting from "P" to "D" or "R". So you should be able to shift from "D" to "N" without first applying the brakes.

    Does the omission of a steering column lock make the SRX more susceptible to theft? If a thief can get the car started, there are no other safeguards to prevent them from driving off. I know it's unlikely they'll be able to start the car without the remote. I'm just speaking hypothetically.

    Re: Gas Pedel

    Someone decided a few years back that having a column lock on top of all the other locks and safeties was redundant.
    With a park lock solenoid and others it was just overkill.

    What really did it in was the electronic column locks (ECL) on the Vettes.
    We had so many problems with them that GM breathed a sigh of relief when they didn't have to install them on the Vettes anymore except the ones with standard transmissions. Technically it could make them easier to steal, but in all honesty if they want it some cheesy column lock will barely slow them down.
    Frankly, it makes them easier to work on if something breaks on them, at least I can steer it into my bay without having to disassemble the column.

    The PEPS system would be virtually impossible to bypass based on my knowledge of the system's operation.
    Despite what movies show you can't just rip wires out of the dash and short them together to get a car going, it was more complicated then, and it is even more complicated now... to the nth degree....

    PEPS? I think I know what that is, but exactly what does the acronym stand for?

    I referred to it above, sorry.

    I'm not fond of a new acronym I have to learn but that is what GM calls it.
