Purchased this car used, as we never buy brand new. Have owned and Eacalade ESV, Mercedes M Class, Audi A4, etc prior. Never have I had a car that I hated more than this. Poor gas mileage, slow to accelerate, oil always low, panoramic roof broke twice, lost just goes on and on. Constant mechanical issues. Took to dealer a few months ago because steering gave out. Gave me a list of things wrong including the entire power steering system. Every last bit of that was shot. Unacceptable for a car with 100K on i and a car I properly maintained. These problems added up to the tune of $6,000. That was last straw. Traded it, got nothing for it, but so happy to be rid of it. Went with a Lexus RX 350
Heated seats, power third row, panoramic roof (when it's not broken!)
Make the car last and run! This is why people stay away from American cars.
We've owned this 2007 SRX AWD V-6 about 4-years. It now has 90K miles. The car has been very reliable, and we've only ever paid for routine maintenance. There are a few problems you should be aware of. (1) The engine consumes several qts. of oil between changes. (2) The build integrity is fair-poor, as evidenced by numerous squeaks and rattles. (3) The passenger foot-well is extremely narrow, and uncomfortable. (4) Fuel mileage is much lower than advertised. We experience 15/20.
Ride is superb for long trips; almost like driving your sofa. AWD system works well.
If you're in the market, I'd suggest avoiding the V-6 in favor of the V-8. The six is under-powered and its purported fuel economy seems a false promise.
I bought this used with 45000 miles.
It has performed great for me.
Smooth ride, great seats, great handling for a tall crossover and a great value.
Performance with the V6 is adequate, but it is pulling a heavy vehicle with AWD.
Have not needed more yet.
I considered the GMC Acadia and clones, but this was less than any of them with similar age and miles despite a higher initial price.
Some minor interior issues were resolved quickly by the local dealer under warranty.
Mileage runs low 20s highway, not bad with AWD at high speed and high teens around town.
Love it so far and would buy another but new one doesn't offer the third row seat, useful with the grandkids.
Quiet ride, panorama roof, seats with memory.
Handling is better than expected.
Snow traction with AWD, though would benefit from better all weather tires than OEM Goodyear Eagles.
Would suggest adding bluetooth.
Onstar is OK, but most people would benefit from bluetooth to integrate their regular phones, particularly with more and more laws restricting cell use without a hands free system.
I leased this car in March of 2007 new. I have had nothing but trouble since. The car stopped on me twice, transmission problems and had to be towed each time. Rear end problems twice, tire problems all of the time, and a tire gauge that never stops flashing. When I asked about getting rid of the car I was told everything that was wrong could be fixed and nothing could be done about it. I am afraid to go out of town in this car. Seven weeks ago (Aug. or Sept.2010)the bearings on the passenger side were replaced. I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone. The car is beautiful in looks but not fit to be placed in the Cadillac class. I am glad the lease is almost over. Never again.
Nice ride, for a short wheel base has a very smooth ride. The V6 has plenty on get up and go, but it doesn't have the power to keep it at a 70 mph run.Hardly ever is in 5th gear. If you watch the rpm you will notice an increase and still running 60 or 70 . that's why the fuel economy is so poor. I get about 21.5 hwy.But I'll pay the price for the ride and reliability
Comfort, style, looks,
Stay away from the BASE Cadillac. If your going to make a Cadillac do it CADILLAC style.
