Two months ago I bought 2004 Cadillac SRX V8 AWD with 14,000 miles for $27,500 - a very good deal. This is basically the price of new Toyota Highlander, Ford Freestyle, or Chrysler Pacifica! I added a Certified Pre-Owned package (with 2.9%APR). This is a very good vehicle, but it is not without glitches. I had the rear wheel hub replaced. There is corrosion at the rear roof rack pillars. Also, there is some vibration from the engine at 1,500 RPM. But overall I am happy with the vehicle.
The V8 engine, AWD, handling, comfort, hands-free phone, and style.
Give it better fuel economy (displacement on demand, direct injection), and add tilt/telescope steering wheel with memory and separate 3rd row seats.
