Other than. the glitchy efficiency of early-production examples, CUE depends on a. smartphone-like touch panel that changes the way you’ll operate the environment. control and infomercial systems. Be prepared to invest a long time figuring out. how HINT works with the car in the driveway; do not try to do it while you’re. driving. Aside from that, the High-end trim is our preferred option for a made use of. 2013 SRX, as it uses smoother-riding 18-in tires, readily available navigating as well as rear-seat entertainment. Try to find a CPO design if readily available, and otherwise, select a. well-cared-for, low-mileage instance.
