    Sorry for the 'newbie' question, but what is a supplier discount? I'm really motivated to order/purchase a 2013 SRX, but local dealer said he can't do anything until he receives new pricing. If I could work off a set price or discount from invoice, perhaps I could get them to be more cooperative. Thanks in advance...and again, sorry for lack of knowledge/familiarity with all the terms and acronyms (GMS, EVA).

    hmm I will have to test drive one with it! I wondered about the whole vibrating seating thing!

    I really believe the Driver Awareness package will be a strong plus to have. I like the blind-side side view mirror alerts and the seat cushion that vibrates if your SRX moves out of your driving lane (without using your turn signals). I drove an XTS and I loved the vibrating seat cushion. I also like the fact that the seat will vibrate if your SRX is backing out of a blind parking spot and will warn you ahead of time of approaching vehicles. To me the vibration is an "instant" warning vs an audio warning. The reason I say that is this... if someone pinches you ... you jump immediately but if one hears a warning buzzer sound... it may take a split second longer to process "why am I hearing that sound." and add to that noise the noise of talking to someone in the car and or listening to your favorite hard rock music all at the same time. LOL

    The assist I haven't tried out yet but might be a great feature for my wife who likes to back up into things. To be honest with you I could probably use it myself. Someone pulled around the back side of the gas pump at a 90 degree angle behind me which was on my blind side. I needed to back up a little bit and if you have a rear camera you know that it takes a few seconds to power up and by that time I had already started backing up and just kissed the front side of the car that had pulled right up to me ... that was when I had my 2010 SRX.

    Just some food for thought...

    Drove the XTS myself this AM. The wife thought she may want that instead of the SRX. After spending about an hour in the XTS including the test drive, she got out and walked over the the SRX and said "I like the SRX, it has more style." Probably a good thing since the SRX will be less expensive. I loved the dash of the XTS and the HUD. It was sort of a let down for me sitting in the SRX after the XTS. The dash is not near as impressive.
    Driver assist for $455 seems like a worthwhile investment.

    Dealer has a "close enough to what I would select" 2013 in transit, so we did not bother driving the only 2013 SRX they had on the lot. The trip today was mostly about XTS versus SRX. Dealer is going to let me know when it shows up on his lot. I got the impression that I would get an iPad with the 2013 SRX. (Definitely stated overtly with the XTS).

    I am going to be ending a 2010 SRX lease about 4 months early with a vehicle that has less than 11K miles on it. I know technically it has no more value than if it had the alloted 12K miles/year. I would expect them to make a little more reselling that than the identical 2010 they have on the lot with 43K miles. Is it reasonable for me to hold out for supplier pricing?

    Ask your salesman to compare the dealers best price with that of a GM Supplier Discount for Friends. If it is lower with the Supplier Discount then either GMJim or I can offer you a Supplier Discount.

    Let us know which one will be better for you.

    Thanks again for the offer and suggestion. Turns out that th transaction was super easy. I emailed the sales manager and asked about thier price as compared to GM Supplier Discount for Friends. I got an email back asking if I had a Supplier number. I wrote back and said that I did not have one, but saw online that some folks were getting a couple of hundred less than GM Supplier Discount for Friends. The next email I got back was a price a couple of hundred less than the Supplier price with lease info consisting of no down payment, no security deposit, same terms as the 2010, and $48 less per month than I was previously paying.


    We took delivery of a Black Ice Performance yesterday.

    The salesman did confirm the iPad was only on the XTS.
