Oil Problems- GM in denial
By Kent on


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


Great looking car but clearly a defect in the engine. As others have reported, you get an oil change an 1500 miles later the car starts shaking. You check the oil, its empty. No oil leak, no burning smell, just gone. The dealership says they've "never heard of this problem" yet people all over the internet report the same problem. We wanted Russ Darrow, our dealer to find out what was wrong before the warranty ended. They have done nothing except keep charging us for oil changes (@ $117 each time) and say there is nothing wrong. Even though randomly for no apparent reason, you'll check the oil and it fine then a week later its 5 quarts low. Its clear there should be a recall on this car.

Best Features

Good styling and ride.

Worst Features

GM, Fess up to the oil problem! Bad rear blind spots!
