My '08 SRX 3.6 lost it's life to a patch of black ice. I am looking at 2010 SRX's with the luxury package and 3.0 V6 as a replacement. I have driven a couple of 2012's as dealer loaners so I am kinda familiar with the cars. The 2012's had the 3.6 so I am totally unfamiliar with the 3.0.

How much performance difference between my '08 and the 3.0?

Real world MPG to expect? The only thing I didn't like about the '08 was its thirst. I'll run 70 - 75 on the highway when I drive it. My wife will do most of the driving and it will be 50/50 city/highway. Her foot on the highway is as heavy as mine.

Anyone who has experience with both cars to do the compare and contrast thing would be appreciated as well.

Any info I can get about the care and feeding of these cars before pulling the trigger would be appreciated.

I went from a 08 AWD 3.6 to a 10 FWD 3.0. Better gas milage performance about the same. But I miss the AWD in the snow. I also have a heavy foot stop light to stop light no problem staying out front.. The 08 did have a better ride but I went from 18's to 20's. I get 23 mpg on trips driving 70 plus.
Been trouble free 36,000 miles. Radio Nav Unit replaced twice under warranty.

JMHO but I would get the 3.6 over the 3.0. We have many complaints of the 3.0 being underpowered. The 3.6 gets up and goes much better.

The 2010 3.0 engine does not have enough power, go for the 3.6 for sure!!!!!The 2010 has had a fair amount of problems also....Go for the 2012 if you can swing it....

We had a 2010 Premium, and now havea 2013 premium. 3.0 is adequate, but the 3.6 definetly has more power. The 10 rode somewhat rough, the 13 has a much better ride. Seats in the 13 are much more comfortable, don't know about the 12. Overall we were happy with our 10, and it was trouble free, it was jst time to trade.

Just my opinion on my personal vehicle, but I believe the '11's to be a considerable jump in quality. Consumer's Reports (however much you care for them) seems to agree.

Thanks for the help! I, or my wife, am the proud owner of a 2011 SRX Luxury. Red with Ebony over grey interior.
