How's the 2010 and newer SRX sun roof work? Open all the way in one piece or 2 pieces of glass? Only front piece open/tilt and the back piece stationary? Thanks

#14 of 17 SRX vs. Lexus RX
Jan 26, 2011 (7:34 am)
I purchased the SRX earlier this month. Had owned Lexus for previous ten years. The SRX is far superior to the RX in every regard.
I just drove down to Maryland on the interstate (500 mile roundtrip). I had four full size adults in the SRX and never felt it was underpowered or less responsive than the RX. My average fuel burn was 25 mpg, averaging 68 mph. When driving the same route in my RX last time I averaged 23 mpg under similar circumstances. Also, the SRX burns regular and the RX required premium to operate at an acceptable level with four adults at highway speeds.
The SRX handled far better than the RX- it is a real "drivers" vehicle. The "experts" say the RX has better interior materials but I am very pleased with what the SRX has on the inside and as mentioned above it just handles with far more spirit and confidence than the RX.
GM is also offering some very attractive lease deals which sealed it for me.
#15 of 17 P42 chrome plated wheels on luxury model

I am about to lease a 2011 cadillac srx with AWD and the luxury package. I hate the look of the stock 18" alloy wheels. When I talk with the Finance and Lease manager of the local Cadillac dealership, he is telling me they can't put p42 wheels and tires on the luxury awd that I have to spend about $6,000 more and get the performance model. I don't want to jack up the lease payment and get equipment that I really don't need or want just to get the wheels. The price of the 20" wheels and tires through the parts dept is insane. Any thoughts by any members would be appreciated. Thanks, Frank

My '01 F/awd RX300 gets FE equal to your SRX and has never had even one take of premium.
"...it is a real "drivers" vehicle.."
My '01 R/awd Porsche is a REAL "drivers" vehicle while my RX makes for a much more relaxing long distance drive.
No one should be pleased with anything coming out of any GM factory, EVER!
Try the newest Porsche Cayenne if you really want a "drivers" SUV.

Yes, buy a "base" Porsche Cayenne or even an Acura MDX.
