    What would you like to see added to the SRX?

    We have a 2012 SRX4 Premium with 14K miles of trouble free use. So far this has been the best new car I've ever purchased. There are several small changes I'd like to see added to future SRX's. I would like to make it possible for the mirrors to fold in every time I park the car. I would like for the seat coolers/heaters to remained programed the way I have them set without having to reset them every time I start the car. I would like to see an upgrade audio system other than Bosse. An engine option offering a turbo setup. Chrome wheels with replaceable covers. That's just a few things I'd like to see, what would you like?

    Sun Roof Delete. I always leave the shade closed. Too hot in summer and way to noisy when it is open. My roof drains have clogged up twice on a garage kept SRX

    Give me the option of HID headlamps by themselves. I would like to be able to use the full screen without having to purchase Navi. I agree with more radio options.

    Reliability. My '10 was at the dealer 15 times in 32 months. My '13 is going for its 4th time in 4 months.

    This is done on the '13's with no Nav.

    Captain, I guess you did not learn the first time around and got a second SRX ?
    A real touchscreen that actually works as fast as any tablet will be nice. So far for me CUE is a disaster especially when you start to type a destination address.
    How about a V version ?) That will make me buy one for sure

    Rear illuminated door sills. Rear window auto up. Child lock control for each door. Off switch for headlights so they don't come on in garage. Electronic suspension in front wheel drive.

    Sorry if any of this was added for 2013 or 2014.

    I would like to see the radio shut off when you turn the car off.

    About 400 lbs less weight. HIDs standard. One touch open rear lift gate.

    Yeah, a V model would be great!

    Easier access to USB port in the front console....need to be fairly nimble to plug it in especially when driving (I know, that is not safe, but for some reason my iPod just shuts down and will not reset unless I shut car down).

    I forgot to add the kick your leg under the bumper to open the lift gate. How about all led exterior lighting as well.

    Wow! What a surprise! Why are we just now getting this info? I've been saying all along that this vehicle has reliability issues and all it has gotten me is flack from some people on here. Now, at last, one of the forum moderators finally speaks up about his issues with this car.

    Perhaps now people can see why one popular consumer magazine rates this vehicle as less than average reliability. The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. Rather than address quality issues at the source, GM has instead chosen to place support personnel on the forum to "lubricate" the ill will created by their lack of quality control. It is easier and less expensive to say I'm sorry rather than get it right by upgrading your quality control.

    Rear window auto up will not be added ever I don't think. It's a safety feature for kids in the rear seats.

    That kick the bumper gizmo requires no towing hardware. Some people like to tow with their vehicles. I'm with you on the full exterior lighting!

    I let it known quietly. I just didn't spread it around. Out of 8 SRX's in my immediate area, mine is the only one with problems. Both of mine. GM has the '10 fixed now. I thought I would have better luck on the '13, but I might be thinking otherwise now.

    IMO: As with any brand new model or technology there might be fixes and or updates that may be required. I had expected that the new CUE would come with updates in the future so it didn't bother all that much when the interface with CUE and my iPhone 5 wasn't working perfectly. As I expected the first update fixed that issue and now it works great. Yes, Steve and many other buyers had experienced similar issues in their first year of the new GEN II as I did with my 2010 SRX. However, the few updates and recalls were fixed to my complete satisfaction as was the triangular chrome trim piece by the mirror that feel off twice because of weak adhesive.

    I believe that when a buyer gets a completely brand new model and or the newest high tech options there may be updates or fixes for it in the future. I certainly knew that when I bought my 2010 SRX and I knew that going into the new 2013 CUE technology too. I really don't fear buying anything new for I believe there will allays be a fix to any issues that may come up in the future.

    Not to prod, but why both of mine? The '10 AND the '13? I couldn't have hit the wrong end of the bell curve twice... (rhetorical)

    All I know is I'm pretty sure I see a '15 Corvette Z51 in my future.
