Very good driving vehicle
Pros: moon roof
Cons: bad leatherI loved it, it is great
OH MY GOD, WHAT A CAR!
Pros: comfort of ride and onstar navigation
Cons: no spare tireBrand new, I bought the luxury AWD version. Driving this car is magnificent. Do not listen to any review that say this car doesn't have the pick up you need for everyday driving. This car is not slow and if you want more speed, through the shift handle to the left in the sports mode. Maybe for young kids who want a Corvette it may seem slow but it has all the power you need for everything else. Plus the ride comfort is nice and soft compared to many SUV's out their as well as great handling. On the hwy with cruise control I was getting over 27 mpg. Best thing in my opinion is ONSTAR navigation. Press the onstar button then tell the person where you want to go. They download turn by turn directions to the center of your speedometer and also to your navigation device maps. A nice woman's voice comes on speaking these directions to your destination while telling you which side of the road it is located on. No programing required. Just tell the real live person answering the onstar button your address that you want to go to or any point of interest that you may be interested in. Techies not needed Fit and finish on this car is also amazing. This is my first GM care in over 35 years. What a pleasure it is to ride in the comfort of this auto
Great, comfortable car
Cons: quick acceleration - it's a little jarringI really like my SRX. I have previously driven sedans, and I like the extra height that this car offers. It is a very comfortable ride, but it handles surprisingly well. The amenities are wonderful!
Pros: Panoramic sunroof
Cons: turn signals
Advice: ADD ALL FEATURES!This Cadillac is the best of the best! The ride is so smooth and luxurious. Although there are a few perks... the turn-signals in the gauge cluster. They are very ugly and annoying. Other than that, I have had no problems with my SRX. The AWD is very impressive when it comes to gas mileage. The panoramic sunroof is gigantic and brings in lots of light into the SRX. When you don't want light, close up the power sunshade. Cadillac has outdone themselves, which is something they have not done for quite some time now. The headlights are amazing. I have never knew how technologized these cars can get. They have a duel swiveling system and a leveling system. The washers come useful for off-roading. The inside is very plush and soft. The stitching across the dash looks luxurious. The seats are quality material. Trunk space is generous and when the seats are folded down, there is plenty of space for about eight golf bags. The power trunk is very fast and detects when it has something in the way. he reverse camera is not that clear as it should be for a Caddy, but the pop-up navigation system is really useful. The steering is responsive on the gauge cluster is easy to read with it's LCD screen. Like I said before THE TURN-SIGNALS ARE SO UGLY! When you add some of the many impressive features, this car is one amazing ride!
Pros: Comfortable seats
Cons: Power and shifting
Advice: Look elsewhere, not worth the moneyI purchased a 2007 SRX with a V8 engine. The car is wonderful if you are driving on a flat straight road, however if driving uphill,even the slightest incline, the transmission is too high geared and the vehicle will lose speed and continously shift. In a twenty mile mountain drive the engine shifted a total of 42 times. I tried the same drive in the 's' mode and the engine shifted 33 times. The back up warning is useless. You are required to take your eyes off away from the mirrors or back window and look up to see if one, two or three lights about the back window are lit in order to determine if there is something you are not seeing, a audio warning does not come on until you are 12 inches away from an objet and the warning does not work at all unless your back up speed is between 3 and 5 mph. Overall I am very disappointed in the performance of the V8 engine, I have found the features to be very difficult to use and am constantly consulting the Owner's manual. The car is NOT worth the money paid for it, a big let down for all the hype the sales people had to say about it.
