CAR did not hold its value, Luck If it is now worth 20000 dollars.
Overall nice vehicle. Very pricey & package options are not bundled correctly. At this price point, Xenon/LED headlamps should be standard! Cooling/Ventilated seats should be standard! Powertrain is so-so. Engine is somewhat decent but this 8-Speed transmission needs work. Shifts are hard at times & slow. Paint quality sucked from new. Cadillac needs to get back on track
I LOVE this car! It is the 4th Cadillac I have had and it is by far the best of the lot! I got it in 2008 from my parents with ~14,000 miles, it now has 160,000. I drove it everyday to work until I retired in 2016. my husband also has one, a 2007, his second Cadillac, and he loves his as well. I'm gonna shed tears when I give it to my granddaughter on Thursday!
The down side is the really, really small trunk. You have real trouble putting 2 golf bags in and you have to take the drivers out or just bend them, not a good idea for any golfer. Outside of that I love the vehicle.
The SRX is a quiet, comfortable ride loaded with features. Unfortunately, the mechanical reliability is less than stellar. At 112k miles, the check engine light indicates the timing chain needs replacing at a cost of nearly $2000. Yesterday it needed a front wheel bearing replacement. I've owned almost every make of car in my 52 years of driving and never needed a wheel bearing replacement, but then I never owned a Cadillac. Looks like this will be my first and last Cadillac.
Having owned 2 corvettes a Ferrari F355 a BMW m6 I can honestly say this is by far the fastest, most comfortable and most beautiful vehicle inside and out that I have ever had. I long to drive it even if only to the grocery store. Always put the recorder on when valet parking as you can see them salivate as you pull up.
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.
