I purchased my SRX based on its features that were perfect for my family. Large cargo area, the panoramic glass roof, the AWD, and I liked the looks and how it drove, but the problems started at 70,000k. As a world class luxury crossover I was expecting so much more. I have owned a Volvo, Toyota, Subaru and before the SRX a Kia Sorento. I have always been able to put over 250 thousand kilometers on each vehicle before trading them, but my SRX has required more repairs than all my others have had combined. Repair costs have also been much higher, even though most parts are marked as made in Mexico. The SRX is my first and last GM product. When I cross other SRX drivers, I just nod in sympathy, and they all seem to understand.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
