It might be an option that was not included in your tester.
Do you, or does anyone, know if bluetooth will be an option on the '08s?

I don't think so. The vehicle listed for $50K. They are not going to add a start button and remove the traditional key from the steering column as an option. GM doesn't do things like that...
#756 of 804 Smart key, New info..

I might be wrong about the Smart Key on the 2008 SRX.
The new key FOB might work as a Smart Key. There is no start button but the ring around the ignition key might be set up to be a twist "Start" button.
This is apparently how the 2008 CTS will be setup.
Not sure if the FOB will also automatically unlock the doors. Will have to look into further.

Have you heard anything about bluetooth. That is very important to me, since my wife will be driving the car often, and we have found it to be a very useful and safe feature to have on our RX330.

If what Motortrend is reporting is correct, I'll definitely buy the second generation SRX when it debuts in 2011. Supposed to be the size of the BMW X3. Probably a little small for some but it would be perfect for me. I really like what Cacillac has been doing lately but I too often find their cars to be too big. So, if Caddy slims the SRX down I'm definitely in.

My brother had his tranny fluid changed a local dealer & he said the fluid was burnt. My brother saw it & it was in bad shape. He told him to get rid of it. My brother said it does downshift harder than other cars he's driven. Anyone else have a problem like this or any suggestions? Thanks, Jim

Bluetooth will not be available on the 2008, either will any version of a smartkey. This vehicle has two years left until it's being replaced with the BRX, which will have the technology of the new CTS. Until then, it's a lame duck vehicle.
#761 of 804 Warning Chimes??
Jan 04, 2008 (5:01 am)
Does anybody know why I get 4 chimes when I take my 2008 SRX out of park? I think it may be the reverse warning system however the owners manual does not mention it and the sales person does not know. How could the salesperson think I am going to accept "I don't know" for an answer? Please help!
#762 of 804 2004 V8 SRX--Car starts intermittently
Jan 04, 2008 (5:12 am)
Never been on a forum before but this is my last resort. I bought my SRX in July 2007. Since, Nov 2007 the car started intermittently. Jim Coleman Cadillac in Bethesda have replaced the mass air flow system and the alternator. They have checked the started and the fuel pump and they said that it is ok. They finally told us that the problem is the engine harness. They stated that the car had some damaged wires from a previous accident which we had no clue about because it wasn't on the Carfax report. On January 2, 2007, we finally got the car out of the shop (after paying $2500) and low and behold the next day, the car wouldn't start again. This morning, it started up again and so it's back at the dealer today. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what else I should have the dealer check into? BTW, the car was bought from a dealer called Car Spectrum and they do not certify their cars. But that's another story.

I also think those annoying chimes are the reverse warning system.
I find them pretty loud, and think i'm going to disable them.
