2005 Cadillac SRX Rwd 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My previous car fell apart @ 530,00 miles. After tons of research, I found my SRX & fell in love with the price & the great condition for being used. 36 days into owning it, on a weekend trip, it made some funny noises. We pulled over a lot, but other than the check emissions light, nothing appeared to be wrong. The next morning, I started it up & the engine sounded HORRIBLE! We checked the oil & there WASN'T ANY! We put nearly 6qts of oil in it and took it to the dealer the next day. There wasn't any sign of a leak & the dealer said it hadn't used oil either. It's purred like a kitten ever since & no more oil loss. Has anyone had this happen to them or explain what might have happened?


Favorite Features

I love the comfortable ride and how secure and safe I feel while driving it.


Suggested Improvements

Sturdier dash components such as the AC knobs and painted plastic covers.

2005 Cadillac SRX Rwd 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Drove about 5 used SRX's before I selected this one. They all drive differently - mainly suspension. I particularly love the smoothness of acceleration and braking. Had wood steering wheel and console... added wood kit from dealer. Previously had a Mercury Mountaineer. Like the increased gas mileage - averaging 18.9 in mixed driving per the computer.


Favorite Features

Cornering ability. Overall smoothness. Acceleration. Prestige factor. XM Satellite radio.


Suggested Improvements

Rear visibility is awful! Turning radius is also worse than my previous SUV. Shocks can be defective and make loud noises. Had them replaced under certified warranty.

Review

Have only owned this vehicle for 1 week! Got a certified 100,000 mile one with 40K miles. Turns heads. I am currently getting in mixed highway and street travel 20.8 miles per gallon. Very please compared to that of most SUV's. Handles very well when pushed too. Otherwise it is a very smooth highway cruiser. Nice alternative to my old SUV!


Favorite Features

Better than advertised gas mileage. 8 way power seat adjustments. Excellent stereo and speaker placement. Many electronic adjustments and convenience settings. Fairly unique design - not many on the roads. Added the Vogue wood interior kit - wow what a difference to dashboard! Step in/out height.


Suggested Improvements

Rear seat headrests block rear vision. V6 engine noise is somewhat unsettling but hard to hear when windows closed. Gated transmission shift is not precise and should be more solid.

Review

Fine all purpose SUV type car. Good on the road and in town. Best styled of all SUVs. So many of the others look alike - the SRX is the only SUV people comment favorably the design. Have taken it around Montana in the summer and Texas in the winter.


Favorite Features

Interior and exterior design. Good engine. Nice informational computer.

Review

This is the first American car I've purchased in 25 years and I can't believe it hasn't had a single bug or problem with it. This is a first in any car I've ever owned! Used to Drive Lexus and BMW but i'll stick with Cadillac since the car has been dependable and America needs my business.


Favorite Features

Large sky roof opening, smooth suspension, nav system, satellite radio, light color leather seats have been resistant to stains and cracking


Suggested Improvements

Power tailgate, power tilt and heated steering wheel, power fold-in mirrors, integrated remote in key fob
