Smooth Ride

by from Little Rock, AR on August 24, 2017

Perfect luxury crossover. Spacious, all the bells and whistles. Enjoyed the third row seat. I owned the V8 model so it was a bit of a gas guzzler.

This is a reliable and very comfortable car with three row leather seats in great condition. It features all the bells and whistles you can imagine. Fully automated sunroof gives you a feeling like you are in a cabriolet. Great safety features offer ABS and Cruise Control. Pleasure and fun to drive.

We have owned this car for just over 8 years now and can't wait to get rid of it. It has had a water leak on the front drivers side post so it drips down onto the floor. Dealership couldn't find the problem. It has 157,000 km now and uses more oil then gas. Dealership will be happy to replace pistons and rings with a new over size kit for $6800.00. Not going to happen. The steering have has been replaced 3 times because the heater inside quit working. The 4th one has been in now for 4 years and seems to be working nicely. A few good points are that it is a great highway car. Very comfortable on long trips. Steering and ride are responsive and reliable. Will never own another Cadillac.

Love my SRX

I bought my 2008 Cadillac SRX a few years back when it had only 75,000 Km's on it (Currently has 195,774). There have been zero issues with the fit and finish of the car's interior or exterior with the expected service and maintenance costs associated with any North American built vehicle. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and as such we have 4 different seasons that our vehicles must contend with and the SRX shines in all of them. A couple of design issues such as having to remove the entire front bumper, along with front wheels to change a headlight bulb or a delicate power 3rd row seating function...but other than that, I'd buy the 2008 SRX again. I prefer the 2004-2009 models over the newer version although the 2016-17 X models look great too. Use the cruise control as I do and you'll save a ton of money on gas, especially on the V6 model as I have. I'd purchase the SRX again and again over the Mercedes, Lexus or BMW...all of which my friends had owned and traded in due to either repair costs (BMW & Mercedes) or nagging reliability issues as in the (Lexus). Did I mention I also purchased a 2006 Cadillac SRX and also love it!

For our third vehicle we purchased a used 2008 SRX Cadillac. This is for my husband's car to replace his 2001 Chevy Pick Up Truck (that he still wanted to keep) for hauling stuff just for that. The SRX Cadillac is for trips and travel around town. With 3rd row seat and wider comfort seat, this is excellent for a ride in visiting our grandkids 500 miles away from us. I drive a 2012 GLK 350 Mercedes and riding in a Cadillac is a superior american car that I recommend also to drive. At first we are skeptical to drive far away from our town but we did great. The comfort and ride is so smooth in the highway. The sunroof added more great fun for the grandkids and our friends viewing the clouds, sun and even the rain and snow are a spectacular sight! Overall, this is a great car that we recommend you to enjoy it too like we do! It's an excellent choice!

Great car. I use the cruise control for all driving conditions and found it raises the stated MPG significantly in both highway and city driving. It is extremely comfortable, safe and stable for long trips. I am very satisfied with the car and it exceeds my expectations. I also like the older pre-2010 models because it allows space similar to my mini van. The low mileage 2008 SRX was a great value and looks and feels like a new vehicle. The vehicle exceeds my expectations.

I had been looking for a 2007 - 2009 SRX with a specific set of options for several months to drive for many years as an item to check off my bucket list. Cars.com was very helpful in finding what I wanted. I found a 2008 with 59,000 miles V6, RWD, Sport package, no sunroof and no third row seat. I wanted 20" wheels but settled for 18" to get everything else I wanted or did not want. It was a one owner trade-in. I love the styling with the sport package and the newer interior(07-09) looks great too. The car was very comfortable on the ride back to Michigan from Florida and we got good fuel economy even with a bike rack. It is a little early for me to report on reliability but most everything is working properly now.

We bought our 2008 SRX in 2011 and loved everything about it. Interior was "Cadillac" all the way. Performance was good. Had to replace tires and battery during the time we owned it. In October 2012, while driving on the Howard Franklin Bridge in Tampa, our SRX hit a solid block of nickel that dropped from a car ahead of us and caused our SRX to swerve towards the bridge wall. Our car hit the wall head on, spun around about 3X and miraculously stopped in the same direction of the traffic and on the emergency lane. All airbags deployed. The SRX was deemed "Totalled" even though externally it looked like there was no damage except for the spot where the block of nickel lodged on the bumper. The block damaged the frame. None of the passengers had any serious injury. My wife and my daughter both had a minor whiplash and I was fine. Hard to believe we survived that but the SRX kept us safe. Probably would have been most severe if in any other vehicle. Thank God for the SRX. We're buying another. I recommend it for those looking for safety.

I am entering my 3rd year. of ownership of my 08 SRX. The first year was spent getting little things repaired under warranty that should have never been missed in the factory. Air noise panoramic-roof, peeling chrome on door handles, loose interior trim.....after all that non-sense was repaired I began to enjoy ownership of this very comfortable SUV. The leather is of good quality and seat comfort is first rate. The A/C will freeze you out if you let it. This unit has every option available and after initial problems this car has become problem free. MPG is poor with premium fuel...23 hwy. on a good day with tail wind, downhill. But man, is it comfy. Just drove it coast to coast without feeling beat up. Has 66,000 mi. and it isn't even close to tired...still drives as new. Handles well in snow and slick roads, never stuck.
