I ordered my 2005 SRX and took delivery on December 31, 2004. Black Betty is V8, AWD, Luxury Performance Package with every option available. Being 10 years old and having put our Family Truckster through the paces (fully loaded thru the Cross-Bronx, fully loaded climbing mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont) she had seen better days. I got approved for a new car and started looking at the CTS and CTS-wagon, with the 3.6 in it but just didn't love anything. I decided to put money into Betty and bring her back to her glory. Well, she just spent 2 weeks at the dealer and $6k later, she is feeling much better. The computer needed 2 updates (she runs like a TOP now!), all new brake pads and rotors (opted for some really nice EBC's thru AutoAnything, dimpled and slotted), new Mag-Ride rear struts, new headlights (opted for non-HID this time), and fixed broken motor mounts. They did see some sort of oil leak that they changed the oil and put dye in, so I will go back and see if they can find the leak, plus I need to do the front Mag-rides (but they aren't blown). She is pretty much back to her old self and riding like a Cadillac! I am quite positive that if I hadn't opted for the Northstar when buying her, the V6 would be dead after the abuse this car has taken. She is such a solid-constructed car with the best engine that (was) out there. SO HAPPY TO HAVE HER BACK!
