This is a SPORT UTILITY. Mine had 69k miles and two weak cylinders when I bought it. The engine still lasted for 3 years. Only maintenance was the regular oil changes/tire rotation. But I love the car so much it was well worth spending 10k for a new motor at 122k. The transmission lasted 170k. Like with anything wear and tear things will need to be fixed and replaced. It's easy handling, easy to park. I'm older now and getting in and out of it is so easy even for my elderly mother. Always having a sports car in the past it handles remarkably well. Has real good acceleration not like a sports car, but then it isn't one. I've hauled a 12' utility trailer with a Goldwing across country twice. Mind you that was pushing the cars' GVW. But it did it along with 4 other round trips from Albuquerque to Jacksonville Florida. I myself have put over 100k miles on this car and I still love it.

Maintenance costs make it not worth it.

I bought this car used when it 7 years old and had 60k on it... not bad. I put ALOT of highway miles on it because my son lived 4 hours away (at the time). In the beginning it was a very smooth ride; very quiet, with power to spare. The next couple of years, however, has been full of major mechanical problems and the parts for this thing are really expensive. I would encourage anyone considering this car to reconsider and look elsewhere. The cost of oil changes alone can run from $70 to $100 a pop.

VERY UNHAPPY WITH PURCHASE

I bought this car October 2013. 2 weeks after the motor blew. Fortunately we were able to get GM to cover the costs of replacing the motor. then i was back in again to have the entire strut assembly replaced, not long after that i went in to have wheel barings replaed (i was ok with that) then again back in to have the water pump replaced. ive only owned this car 6 months. Now i am having some issues again that the service techinicians cant seem to figure out. I had my oil changed on March 6th. On April 23rd i took my car back in do it acting weird and find out i only have 1 qt of oil in it although i had 6 qts put in it 1 1/2 months before... they have no idea what wrong now... very unhappy

I bought this car because it was more of a luxury car don't waste your money. Bought car 9/09 list of problems sense then. Lights burn out to often, have to get car Aligned every 5000 miles, been thru 4 sets of tires, with proper rotation every 5000 miles, Bushing on front wore out, Front brakes wore out 3 times, cadlic converter went out, A/C went bad, Water pump bad, replaced struts, Replaced spark plugs, motor mount broke, and to top it off 4 times, my car will spit and sputter going down road, check engine shows miss fire. Mechanic shows nothing wrong. Have spent $1500.00 becuase mechanic's keep guessing at problem. No one can figure it out.

I purchased our 2006 Cadillac SRX for my wife in 2009. It was a low milage unit and it was exactly what we were looking for. Aside from some normal maintenance issues we have not had any major issues with this car. The car runs well and while it doesn't get 40 MPG the fuel economy is pretty good for a V8. The SRX has a great ride and is a sporty looking unit for a family wagon. We haven't had any of the problems other posters have had. Must be the luck of the Irish. I also do my preventative maintenance (oil changes, inspections etc.).

Don't be lured by luxury!

I have read many reviews regarding the SRX, nearly all of them positive. However.... I have owned my 2006 for just over 2 years now and can't even count the number of times I've had to take it to the shop for major repairs. These include the panorama sun roof not closing, the wheel bearings needing to be replaced not once but twice, check engine light coming on for reasons the shop was unable to duplicate (of course!), electrical issues causing the engine to quit and the final straw-no compression to the engine, which required a tow to the dealership, a call to GM, and more than a week's worth of repairs. I have absolutely had it with this car! $6000+ in repairs in 2 years? Not acceptable.

Purchased as a demo fully loaded (minus the navigation system and V8) and absolutely love the car. The magnetic ride control gives the car a performance/handling on par with BMW. The moonroof is great, especially when open on the long drive home from work. The only downside was the high cost of brake work after the service department failed to notice the wear. But all in all a great car and much better than the cheap, underpowered one released 2010. on the long drive home from work.

Soon after purchase of this pre-owned Caddy, I noticed that the radio presets were lost, took in for service, "nothing wrong". Returned, said "internal error" AKA "we never looked!" Replaced the radio, Same problem after new radio installed. Returned back to dealership for 4th time when the windows were "stuck" half way open and no driver's side controls. Now they are going to replace the "unified switch body" and they say that this IS the problem. We'll see? Frustrated that no one seems to be able to find the problem. Anyone else have this issue?

Never thought I'd hate a Cadillac

I bought my '06 SRX 2 months ago, and within the first week it started having electrical issues; radio presets lost memory, sunroof and windows wouldn't close, tilt reverse mirrors wouldn't work, and why it was stalling. The dealership handled the issue poorly, they've had the car for almost 25 days in the last 2 months & still couldn't fix the problem. I took it to another dealership for a 2nd opinion, and it was fixed within an hour. I guess it was a known issue for the battery and computer modules to be tighten, so that all electrical lbs of power can support all the functions. After about 3 days, all the issues came back again.

I bought this car a year and a half ago and the only problem Ive experienced is a dead cell in my battery which Cadillac replaced under warranty. It handles well in bad weather and is fun to drive. It does drink gas and oil and that could have been an issue standing for improvement. But, overall its a great car. I would purchase another. The best car Ive driven in my 13 yrs.

We are dissatisfied with the certification done on the vehicle prior to purchase. Within 4 mos. of purchase, we have had to replaced a right turn signal bulb, the air lift shocks on the trunk lift gate which failed on October 1, 2009. The vehicle was purchased May, 2009. The gas propelled lift game failed and the trunk collapse on my head, causing me to be knocked unconscious for 30 minutes,the back windshield-wiper- defrost equipment completely faioed ad exploded around me with 1000 of pieces of black glass showered all over me and the back trunk of the car.

I bought a caddy because my dad always had caddy"s, and said you get a lot more for your money. I bought it when it had 59k on it. But being a "cadllac"I thought this would not be an issue. I have had nothing but repair after repair, and to top it off, it use"s "oil"... The dealer has told me that using a qt. Every 2k miles is considered normal!And there was nothing they could do. Told the dealer, my next car will be a Toyota.

Check out the Rest, Then Go for the SRX

I've put over 60,000 miles on my V6 AWD SRX, and have enjoyed the superior comfort, drive handling, and performance in adverse weather conditions. This cross-over just feels safe in all conditions, a comfort when hauling kids and on long trips. I'm a great fan of station wagons, but find the SRX to drive even better with superb luxury. Great in snow, mud and on slippery roads. Cadillac bested my first choice, the Acura MDX, with its better looks, regular gas, and sporty handling.

We have had an SRX for 2 1/2 years now

We purchased our SRX in 06 and it had 3,500 miles on it. Great car and we have really enjoyed it. We have had problems with the skyroof, it has been back to the shop 2 times thus far in addition tires can be pricy as the front and back are different sizes. We are going to get a 2008 SRX with AWD but are not concerned with the skyroof this time nor the third seat. The 3rd seat sounds great but it is hard to get to and sits to close to the rear of the car for safety reasons. We would recommend this car.

I leased this vehicle for 3 years and wish it was 2. the car broken down on an out of state trip. Had it towed and it turns out it was an oil problem burns oil like crazy, takes only synthetic oil which should be good for 6 to 7 thousand miles according to Cadillac. the more I read about this car the more I hear about oil issues.

I have now owned my SRX for 1.5 years. I purchased it brand new with no complaints up until recently. Over the past 3 months, my car has been in for repairs 5 times with the dealer only fixing my concerns/complaints 3 occasions. It has had a new Catalytic converter (the car stalled on me in rush hour traffic), the horn went out, the battery had to be replaced (in a year), and there is a constant rattle when I accelerate or brake. For a "luxury" car, I am frustrated. My prior vehicles that included a BMW and Mercedes did not require this much maintenance. So much for switching to American made for me. This will be the last GM I purchase!

I can't believe I LOVE a car!

My SRX is the most comfortable car I have ever owned including the Yukon! I get 24-28 MPG highway,18 city. most stylish, classy car on road. Seats, panorama roof, back seats, stereo,are great! 3rd row is for kids not adults! Am going to purchase new one in 2010 in red! Drives great in snow (Chicago) & rain. Handles like a dream with the two different size tires on front and back, ingenious idea. Picks up very quickly great maneuverability, awesome stereo. I tried the Porsche Cayenne, Volvo, Mdx, Lexus 300 & BMWX3,5 none compared to SRX that's why it was Car of the year 2006! Great job Cadillac! Finally it takes 87 gas, what a extra bonus esp. now!!!

Bought this V-8 used with 9,000 miles and now have 19,000 miles. My wife is the primary driver and she loves it. The All Wheel drive is great. The power rear tailgate is nice and makes it a snap to load at just the right height. We have not had any problems so far. The very best thing about the SRX with the Northstar is it is a blast to drive. This thing moves and handles very nice.

This is my first Cadillac and over all I have been very pleased. The ride is "Cadillac", handling and performance is more than I expected. However, after only two plus years I am going to trade it in for another SUV. I'm in sales and drive over 35K miles per year. My SRX burns a quart of oil every 1.5K miles. It seems as often as I put gas in I put in oil. No Cadillac dealership either wants to or can help me with my issue. Most disappointing!

My experience with this SUV has been nothing but satisfaction. I can see why it's called a crossover type. It can please on all levels. It feels and drive like a fine car and can accelerate quickly and smoothly as a sport car. Spacious inside without looking big and gaudy on the outside. The body design is sporty looking and yet refined. I did not expect to even consider this vehicle because it was in it's second year of production but the test drive simply left the competition behind. Not only is quality built under the hood but also is pleasure and comfort. We took a 1400 roundtrip and driving fatique was never a factor!

I'm an automotive plastics engineer. I also own a bike and race car. I am very critical of quality and performance in anything I own or drive. I also own an 06 Toyota 4 runner. I'm happy to say that I am very impressed with the quality and performance of this truck. The seats are very comfortable, the glass roof (s) are very large with power shades on both, the transmission smooth, great handling, good power, good brakes, good sound system, nice extra features like little gloveboxes in doors, etc.. The only somewhat negatives: gas mileage, a couple of panels not so tight on the gap tolerances, odd slight valvetrain noise...and that's about it. It's a great vehicle. V8 a must too.

We got this as a demo with only 3500 miles on it, now has 8700. We have made two long trips with this car and found it to be extremely comfortable. It handles like a sports car and preforms excellent. However we have had to take it back for a stuck sunroof, rear washer quit, and to check the back up warning system. We also have a Mountaineer that is now a 2nd choice to drive auto. It has every option except AWD. In Atlanta not a necessary feature. Avg about 20 mpg through mountains driving from Atl to Detroit. Researched the SUV's throughly, this is the best choice!

I have a family of four and we wanted an AWD SUV with the optional 3rd row seat. I wanted something sporty and fast, my wife wanted the ideal soccer mom ride. The SRX is both, a great family hauler that feels safe and is reliable in all conditions. We love the heated seats, handling in ice and snow, traction control and stopping power. But wait, this vehicle is fast and handles extremely well, feeling like a luxury sedan and not a nicely wrapped truck. It has beautiful fit and finish, great Bose sound, and a quiet interior. I did exhaustive research before buying, comparing the SRX to the MDX and RAV4. It was no contest, and I've never owned a Cadillac before.

I have a 2006 V8 SRX with All Wheel Drive. I have to say that the V8 engine makes quite a difference (my mother has the V6). However, you really only feel the extra power if you accelerate while already moving (like passing) and then it flies! Off the line this vehicle sort of lumbers as it is quite heavy. Also, my SRX does feel much sturdier and less hollow than the V6, I'm not sure why. My drive to work is 40 minutes and I actually enjoy it now, it is very relaxed and has a great factory stereo... as opposed to my VERY unreliable Saab which had less than 30,000 miles! My only complaint is that I can't seem to adjust the seat to be 100% comfortable. I think this car is just not made for women who are 5' 2"!

Of the 48 cars I have owned so far, including MB, Lincoln, Bentley and Volvo, this is easily the best in terms of fun to drive, reliability and comfort. Many of the Asian cars had no power passenger seat; many insisted on 4 wheel drive which I neither need nor want. Caddy built this one for me and I'm delighted.

This past year I have owned three cars. The first was an Infinti FX. The FX was a great driver's car but had way too rough of a ride and the rear had little storage. My second car was a brand new Buick Lucerne. It drove great but, didn't fair well in the snow and rain. Also my V6 Lucerne was hard to get in and out of and was sluggish. My Cadillac SRX V6 has very comfortable seats, a functional rear gate, and is nimble and quick. You quickly forget your driving a SUV.

The more we drive this Cadillac, the more we like it. It really handles well. I can't stress this enough. It is a tight, nimble vehicle. Its acceleration is very acceptable for a V6. The huge sunroof is enjoyable and we find ourselves using it almost all the time. It is easy to park and not as bulky feeling like full size SUVs. Its gas mileage has been 22-23 mpg highway and 16 around town. We do drive fast and live in a hilly area of So Cal.

I have read the reviews about the SRX, so I had a very low expectation for it. All I have to say is test ride this vehicle, and all those criticisms will seem like hot air. I read one criticism was that the center console had two levels, and that you have to remove the top layer to get to the bottom, if you don't like this feature, remove the upper tray, and it becomes one large compartment. The handling was a very pleasant experience, and all of the controls are thoughtfully positioned. Some people might be accustomed to European or Japanese configurations, so they may not be used to the SRX, my advice is to give some time and you will realize that there is a reason for the position of the items.

The Cadillac SRX is an enjoyable vehicle to drive in town and on the road. Its road noise is much less than other vehicles we have ridden in. The gas mileage is not as good as our previous DeVilles' got though.

Best Vehicle I've Ever Purchased!

This is my first Cadillac and it will not be my last. The vehicle is a head turner and I have received many compliments from friends and other drivers. The ultra view sunroof is a must have. It's a fun vehicle to drive. I'm a very satisfied customer.

This car is amazing, it runs very well. It has lots of room for my family and has a huge sunroof.

I love this car, it is so smooth. The other day we had huge amounts of stream line winds, you couldn't even feel them in this car; let alone hear them! The only problem I have is, sometimes I feel more like a granny driving this car, when all of my friends have their sporty mom vehicles. I am still only 27 and not quite ready to fully give up my youth just yet. However, with hopefully a third baby on the way this car was really the way to go for us. So, I might look like a granny in this car at times,...but I still love it!

The SRX is an outstanding vehicle to drive and to look at in the driveway. It has good power, a tight turning range, and is fun to drive. The extra large sunroof gives it the feel of a convertible without all of the road noise. It seems to be very tightly manufactured. I enjoy driving it as much as my Infiniti G35!

Love my Cadillac SRX

I love our 2006 Caillac SRX. Its comfortable and reliable. Its very stylish exterior is awsome. The V6 sure has a lot of get up and go when you need it. It is easy to park and handles great. There is plenty of leg room both in the front and the second row. The third seat is great, but only fits children. The thrid seat folds flat and when its down there is plenty of cargo space even for my LARGE stroller. The Ultraview is a MUST!! It is amazinly large and doesn't create a lot of noise like most sunroofs. You can't beat Cadillac's warranty!

Nice Ride

I traded in a 2004 Infiniti FX35 for a Cadillac SRX because my wife found the ride on the FX to be too harsh and the cargo space lacking. The SRX rides as one would expect a Cadillac -- very smooth and soft, yet the handling is quite acceptable. Oddly enough the FX had better gas mileage. On a round trip from Long Island, NY to Allentown, PA I achieved 18 MPG on the SRX averaging 70-80 mph. Similar conditions with the FX yielded 21 MPG. The last time I owned an American car was in 1982. I've gone foreign ever since. GM has done something nice here to win me back. Overall I'm very pleased with the purchase, but wish the acceleration to be slightly better; perhaps I should have gotten the V8.

Great SRX!

This is my first ever SUV/Crossover and I am very happy with the SRX. It is fun to drive, like a car, it is very comfortable and with the ultraview sunroof open and windows down it feels as if you where in a convertible or a Jeep! Having driven very flashy cars over my life time, I was worried that the SRX may not get the looks I was use to. But having bought black on black, it gets attention everwhere I go, so I highy recommend the SRX when life tells you the desire for a two seater has past, but you still do not want a boring box on wheels.............simple visit your local Cadillac dealer. I am sure you will agree the SRX will make you still feel young and sporty. It was my 36th B-day gift.

This vehicle rocks!

AThe SRX is a beautiful vehicle. My major complaint is a shortage of storage bins. I am always trying to find a place to put stuff. The exhaust is almost a growl - it is pleasant. The appearane attracts positive comments everywhere I go. Most people cannot beleive that this is a Cadillac. We are thinking of aquiring a second one - it is a very cool, satisifying vehicle. Our dealer was super as well!

I have driven Ford Explorers for 16 years, including 4 different models. My dealer assumed that I would by another, but with my buying plan with MetLife, I could buy the SRX at the same price I would have paid for another Explorer. Besides, Joe Bowman gave me a much higher trade-in than Beach Ford or Colonial Cadillac would have. It was worth the trip to drive 250 mile to Harrisonburg to get the vehicle I wanted. They could not have been a nicer group of people to deal with. When I arrived, all the paper work was completed, and with an explanation of how everything worked, and test drive, I was on my way back to Vievinia Beach. I have been excited to own another Cadillac. I am happy.

After looking at the Lexus GX 470 we decided on the SRX. We added the Drivers and Luxury Packages, 3rd row seat, upgraded Bose stereo system and ultraview sunroof. The Drivers Package has the magnetic suspension and 18" wheels, which makes the car / SUV drive like a dream! An added surprise was the headlight washers - a really neat feature! We average 17 mpg (city) and 23 mpg (road). We LOVE the automatic folding 3rd row, especially with 3 kids. It's easy for the kids to get into from the 2nd row. My husband and I have our own "personal" settings and the car automatically sets them depending upon whose key is used - no more changing the seats, radio, air, mirror, etc. - the car does it for you!

The Cadillac STX is terrific in all respects. I love the large sunroof, the sound system and the power rear hatch. My wife loves to drive it because of its ease of parking and incredible tight turning radius, not to mention the added height over our DeVille. This, of course makes seeing the road and other traffic much easier. We do believe this is a safety feature. We feel secure with the knowlege that there are air bags in front, side, and upper side areas. We love the low sill which makes it easy to load and unload the cargo area. People comment about the cutting edge styling of the vehicle all the time. The all wheel drive gives uncommon road traction which, in turn provides the SRX with exciting acceleration.

Pleasant Surprise

The Cadillac SRX is the most amazing vehicle that I have ever owned. It is beautiful (inside and out), luxurious, comfortable, fast and posesses impeccable road manners. It handles like a dream. When I drive or park the vehicle, it turns heads. On several occasions, people have actually stopped to ask me about the car. When I cite the long list of its virtues, you can tell that the questioners are deeply impressed. I cannot imagine why it took me so long to buy a Cadillac! It has been worth every penny!

After test driving both the V6 and the V8, there is no compairison for me. The V8 is so much nicer, the noise level is quieter, and the the power is effortless. Both my wife and I just love the styling, and we get asked all the time, "What kind of car is it", and I am proud to tell them that it is a Cadillac. I have not found anyone that has not liked the looks of this car. Keep up the good work GM, your quality is world class!
