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

Review

Bought the SRX in '05. I loved the car until Mar 08. First it ran hot was towed to dealer that replaced water pump for $300. 2 months later she was driving the car and it started shaking. She took it to the dealer that checked the oil and said it was over three quarts low. They added oil and charged $117. The engine never leaked or smoked, so where did the oil go. Thee dealer could not tell us . In 2 weeks the check engine light came on. Took to dealer who ran diagnostic and found a cyl was damaged due to low oil. The car was always serviced at dealer with Mobil 1. Tried to get new engine for $8000, but none found, even by two dealers. Finally had a local garage install a used one for $2,800

Favorite Features

Style, comfort, quiet ride except when the engine was knocking.

Suggested Improvements

Some dealer or GM support to offer help in understanding where and how over three quarts of oil just disappeared from the crackcase, particularly when the GM dealer did all services.
