    2008 Cadillac SRX - V6 AWD

    I have had two 2008 Cadillacs. One with 257,000 kms (160,000 mi) which was written off due to wildlife this summer: a safe, dependable, versatile, fast SUV. I found a replacement 2008 SRX with only 69,000 kms on it, and after 10,000 kms, find it to be the same high quality in all respects. And it's the Sport model which means 20" wheels, a 6-speed transmission and several other goodies. And it's that beautiful red colour. Great cars.

    2008 Cadillac SRX - V8 4x2

    Pros: Comfortable seats

    Cons: Power and shifting

    Advice: Look elsewhere, not worth the money

    I 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.
