Smooth, Fast and fun to drive. I traded in my 2008 Mustang GT and I haven't looked back. I would buy another anytime. I drive over 80 miles a day to work and back. I now look forward to the trip. You can't beat the Bose stereo. It is almost a surreal experience.
I purchased our 2006 Cadillac SRX for my wife in 2009. It was a low milage unit and it was exactly what we were looking for. Aside from some normal maintenance issues we have not had any major issues with this car. The car runs well and while it doesn't get 40 MPG the fuel economy is pretty good for a V8. The SRX has a great ride and is a sporty looking unit for a family wagon. We haven't had any of the problems other posters have had. Must be the luck of the Irish. I also do my preventative maintenance (oil changes, inspections etc.).
I bought this car because it was more of a luxury car don't waste your money. Bought car 9/09 list of problems sense then. Lights burn out to often, have to get car Aligned every 5000 miles, been thru 4 sets of tires, with proper rotation every 5000 miles, Bushing on front wore out, Front brakes wore out 3 times, cadlic converter went out, A/C went bad, Water pump bad, replaced struts, Replaced spark plugs, motor mount broke, and to top it off 4 times, my car will spit and sputter going down road, check engine shows miss fire. Mechanic shows nothing wrong. Have spent $1500.00 becuase mechanic's keep guessing at problem. No one can figure it out.
Of the 48 cars I have owned so far, including MB, Lincoln, Bentley and Volvo, this is easily the best in terms of fun to drive, reliability and comfort. Many of the Asian cars had no power passenger seat; many insisted on 4 wheel drive which I neither need nor want. Caddy built this one for me and I'm delighted.
This is a SPORT UTILITY. Mine had 69k miles and two weak cylinders when I bought it. The engine still lasted for 3 years. Only maintenance was the regular oil changes/tire rotation. But I love the car so much it was well worth spending 10k for a new motor at 122k. The transmission lasted 170k. Like with anything wear and tear things will need to be fixed and replaced. It's easy handling, easy to park. I'm older now and getting in and out of it is so easy even for my elderly mother. Always having a sports car in the past it handles remarkably well. Has real good acceleration not like a sports car, but then it isn't one. I've hauled a 12' utility trailer with a Goldwing across country twice. Mind you that was pushing the cars' GVW. But it did it along with 4 other round trips from Albuquerque to Jacksonville Florida. I myself have put over 100k miles on this car and I still love it.
