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


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!


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.

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


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.


Best 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

2005 Cadillac SRX Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Selected 2005 SRX N*V8 after head-to- head driving comparison of V8 to V8 & 6 to 6 of Euro and Asian SUVs same day same on-road and off road course. Spec order to get RWD V8 w/my pref color, trim, tow/cooling pkg, and giant moonroof, no NAV or XM. Delivery Jan 2005, currently 15.5k mi. Radio and 6 CD changer caused digital trip reset; was repl under warranty. Performance RWD V8-315 HP w/ 5 spd trans in city and on fwy ~comparable to 1999 FWD V8-300 HP Cad DeVille Concours w/ 4 spd trans; SRX more agile, more responsive, more fun to drive, but ~10% less MPG. Declined dealer computer re-flash (not mfgr recall) after noting Cad Forum impacts on braking & performance. It also fits in my garage.


Best Features

V8 for power and performance on trips. RWD for general handling, sport mode trans. Digital info R/O. Interior space for four 6'2" + adults. Giant moonroof with wide view above thru glass and convertible atmosphere when open; shade to reduce heat from bright sun. CD changer holding 6 CDs.


Worst Features

Improve resticted rear visiblity (I removed rear-middle head rest and added an RV type fresnel lens in rear window). Turn flashers embedded in outside rear mirrors. Trim strip bumpers along sides to reduce dings from adjacent auto doors.

Review

After studying the data available and test driving numerous SUVs, I bought the SRX. And, I haven't been disappointed. Put it through its paces on a twisty road and although not up to my C5 Vette standard it was alot of fun. The interior is very roomy and quiet with great visibility.


Best Features

Panoramic sunroof, OnStar, XM radio, power adjustable seats (heated), AWD and backup sensor.


Worst Features

Pocket for sunglasses, locking gasoline door, Heads-up display, 2" tow hitch. Difficult to find one with an black interior.
