2004 Cadillac SRX Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)
After leasing a 99 Eldo, I leased an '02 Subaru Outback Legacy (LL Bean edition). Both vehicles were upscale for their class and had many great features. I looked for a quality used vehicle as I wanted to get away from premium fuel. I traded in my used '96 Seville which finally had too many miles for the SRX which runs on regular. Would have been a smart fuel move except for the poor mileage I am getting and rising fuel prices. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with this vehicle's handling and ride. I purchased used as I am getting ready to retire and don't want big payments, but I miss the comfort of the Eldo (wish they still made them) and don't want a new vehicle with cheap seating.
This SRX came with nice features:6-cd chgr, pwr seats w/lumbar (could be better lumbar), lg sunroof a plus living in fl, lg cargo area, great handling, love the Northstar still, good sound system, backup chime, 18 in wheels, 2 driver personalization, heated seats. Not too big for an SUV and rides like a car
