#7 of 9 04 SRX / GM a not so funny joke
May 17, 2011 (2:14 pm)
By far the worst vehicle I have ever owned. Since purchased the following has been replaced:
Starter, seat heater elements, airbags, rear door latch, cam position sensors, coil, transmission cooler lines, transmission cooler, transmission lines, the transmission itself, power steering hose, transfer case seal, front axle seals, rear axle seals, differential seals, mirror dimming fluid seals, catalytic converter x 2, shift kit, valve cover gaskets, timing chain cover gaskets.
2 1/2 weeks, less than 500 miles after the the timing chain / valve cover and differential gaskets are replaced, the engine seizes up on the highway. Our warranty expired (by time not mileage) 2 week before the engine seized.
Contacted GM "goodwill" customer service and after 2 weeks was basically told to take a hike. We had 89,000 miles on the car. We have filed a complaint with our states Attorney General
To top it all off the engine for this car was specific to the year. Even a used engine
is 3 times the price of the newer 3.6 liter engines. IE: $2250.00 for a used 04 engine with 70K miles VS $1900.00 for a new factory wrapped engine for the 05,06,07,08 and 09 model.
Although I have always been a GM fan like my father before me, they are not the company they used to be. I will NEVER purchase another GM product and strongly suggest that you don't either.

We'll prune a couple since owner's tend to read most all the discussions about their cars.
