Best driving, handling, and looking car that i have owned. Interior finish and design doesn't measure up to the rest of the car. A friend recently purchased a 2007 model and interior has been significantly upgraded. . I like the size and design of this car, and hope cadillac will continue to tweak the details. I have had no mechanical problems thus far; car now has 6800 miles on the odometer.

Never thought that we would own a Cadillac. This vehicle has me sold. The V6 engine has a surprising amount of power. Gas mileage isn't that great, but somethings are worth the comfort and style compromise. We enjoy the comfort of the ride and the creature features. I would like alittle more wood grain trim inside and maybe a light in the glove box, but hey these are just little things. Mechanically it is just sound with very little maintenance.

2006 SRX V8

I chose the SRX with the Northstar V8 over the V6 because my research indicated the V8 has fewer problems than the V6. The V6 engines are plagued with timing chain defects where the V8's are not. I very am happy with my decision. The V8 has so much more power and the gas mileage difference is only 1mpg on the highway. The SRX is a pleasure to drive and maneuver. It rides and steers more like a car and an SUV.

I bought one of the first SRX's and it has been pretty good. GM offers a Cadillac loaner for all warrenty service, that's nice. It did not need much service, but a couple of nagging problems. The key gets locked in the ignition and won't come out, the front end was noisy and the dealer really resisted fixing it. Perhaps the newers models don't do this. Big thing though- the large sunroof seems really cool. But, after a bit of use it can be VERY squeaky because it is so large. They don't really seem to be able to deal with the noise in service. So, I would caution against getting sold on that feature.

A cut above what I have owned over the last 30 yrs

by from Frankfort, KY on September 12, 2006

It's not perfect but it is well put together. Not many trips back to the shop on things that don't work and taking a vehicle of this type, one is treated a tad better than what I havd been accustomed to taking other cars in for service. One is treated as if you are credible!! The only thing I dislike about the vehicle is the gas mileage isn't the best, but hey, I knew that when I bought one, usually runs 17-18 in town and above 22 out on the road.

This is a very good car. We have a 2006 Cadillac SRX V6 AWD and it's been great to us. It only has 69,000 miles on it, but those miles have been majorly highway. We have all the options on it Xenon lights, the ultraview plus roof, the navigation/bose package, power third row seat, and the 18" chrome wheels. There is no option we don't have. It was my grandfather's vehicle before he passed, and then my grandmother gave it to my father and we use it on an everyday basis. A big improvement over a 1999 Toyota Camry lol. The only slight quibbles I have over the car is the way the Navigation system looks. It looks like it was created by fisher price. The ride could be smoother for a Caddy, but I will take that compromise any day, because the car handles great and the 18" chrome wheels look great. Also, the second row seats are a bit hard, but they have great room, and the third row seat has decent leg room if you get the second row occupants to move up a bit. The 3.6L V6 makes 260 horsepower and 252lb/ft of torque and is mated to a 5 speed automatic and then through all four wheels on our car, and it's a fantastic power train. Great compromise on fuel economy and performance. I've driven the northstar equipped caddy srx and it doesn't have much better pep but much worse fuel economy. Overall a good vehicle. Would recommend to anyone.

Great Used Car Find

I had been looking for a used Cadillac SRX for several years. I was checking all the usual places and people kept asking me, "What exactly are you looking for?" My reply was, "I don't know, but I'll know it when I see it." I saw this Cadillac for less than 20K and only had 12K miles. That's about a half-price car! It was for sale by a new/used car dealer in Atlanta. I cashed in AmEx points for a plane ticket from Houston to Atlanta. The salesman met me at the airport with the car. I drove the car home. Haven't had ANY problem with it. It exceeds all my expectations. It's the six cyl version, but has everything I need.
