I love the look of my SRX. It turns heads while still not so overbearing like the Escalade is. It looks very refined and classy.
My SRX does not have the 3rd row seat and it's storage capacity is amazing. it's like having a truck without the brutish look of a truck.
The interioir of the car is by far one of it's best features. Starting with my model year, the interior has been made to look AH-MAZING.
It's classy, refined and downright beautiful. The burled oak accent trim just sets the interior off.
Front seat support & comfort
The car is very comfortable to ride in. My SRX has all the bells and whistles with electric seat controls. I often adjust the lumbar support to my needs depending on how bad my back is hurting that day.
Heated seats also make for a very warm tush on a cold day.
Although I have never towed with my SRX, I do have the tow package. Although the SRX may look a little like a taller 'stationwagon' it's more of a utility vehicle.
Reliability & durability
Hands down the reliability of the SRX is terrible. I've often wondered what I got myself into buying it.
Parts are expensive and typical of GM, nearly impossible to replace yourself.
Wheel bearing gone? Well you're replacing the enture hub, not just the bearing.
Price or payments
The value of these cars tanks quickly. What cost well above $70,000 brand new costs a quarter of it's price only 4 years later.
Rear seat room & comfort
For how big the SRX looks, it's passenger space is somewhat craped. It's not terrible by any means, but it's not very roomy either.
Audio & nav systems
Although it has a Bose sound system, it isn't very good. It's alright, but it really doesn't hit the notes you want it to.
Materials & workmanship
Some of the materials are pretty cheap for a luxary car.
The "chrome" on the interior door pulls is known for flaking and it has cut my hands on a number of occasions.
Also, it seems that the bearings brake at the slightest bump. Just over 100,000kms for it's first bearing to brake is pretty sad.
