My husband and I just bought our 2008 Cadillac SRX a month ago - probably the best purchase we've ever made. Very comfortable for tall people - my husband and I are over 6' tall. We love the handling and the comfort. We've had other vehicles, and kept looking at a variety of SUV's and this is one great car!

2008 Cadillac SRX AWD - Happy Owner

I am very pleased with my SRX. While I am not thrilled with the "station wagonesque" exterior, the performance, comfort, and feature set is a compelling package. The bottom line is that I love driving it. It was an easy choice between the SRX, Volvo, Lexus, Chevy, Ford and Volkswagen. Here's what I love: - Very good handling, acceleration and performance. The v6 has plenty of get up and go. No problems passing on the highway. A lot of fun in corners. - Utra View moon roof adds a lot of light to the cabin - and the kids love it - Good visibility. It doesn't have the "high-belt line" rampant in 2011+ vehicles. All that does is make the kids car sick and reduce visibility - Handsome interior Here's what you shoud be aware of: - The front and rear wheels are different widths. I'm the kind of guy that gets snow tires and it appears to be a challenge to match tires to this vehicle - The seats are very performance oriented. They are much more stiff then the Ford Flex for example. As such, it took me a long time to find a comfortable seating position. Overall, I think you will be very pleased. It drives much better than the new generation SRX.

I can't get over the look of a station wagon. On the outside it looks like a station wagon. Once you get in the drivers seat you will fall in love. The adjustable pedals and seat it feels like it was custom made for me (I am 5'8 my husband is 6'2 he says its a little cramped.) I didn't care for the two tone interior colors at first but they have grown on me. I love the panoramic sunroof. Gas mileage was a little disappointing. My biggest dislikes are the chrome ac vents there is a bad reflection in the mirrors of them and I don't like the way the middle seat folds down to get to the optional 3rd row seating its awkward. The 3rd row seat is uncomfortable for adults period. Children for short trips are ok but would not recommend it for a long drive. I bought this car used about a month ago. I spoke with the previous owner before purchasing. She just needed more room and said the back seat was a waste of space. I didn't understand what she was talking about until now. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase. You can't beat the ride. I have owned a Honda, a Nissan, an oldsmobile, a Buick, and a Gmc utility vehicle. This SRX hands down is the best riding vehicle that I have owned.

The SRX has far surpassed all of our expectations. We bought it for my wife but we continuously fight over who gets to drive it. Ours has all the options including V8, AWD, sport appearance package, 20" wheels, ultraview roof, 3rd row seat, navigation, DVD player and I recommend every one of them. The car is super fast, it handles like a sports sedan and the interior is awesome. My boss recently bought a $70K Porshe Cayanne and after driving our SRX he was clearly disturbed at what a great value it is. Not sure why this model didn't sell better but it is sure worth a look. Only complaint is poor gas mileage but you get where your going fast and in style.

SRX Rules

Had an Audi Allroad nearing extended warranty end. Fearful of cost of future repairs, and found SRX closest thing viable as replacement. Not sorry I got it, but has taken a month to accept the differences between German and American auto. On balance, I think the Caddie is the better choice for most consumers, because the same features that made the Audi shine made it a mantenance nightmare. Only nagging complaint is the lesser fuel economy, but at least it takes regular at the pump.

I drove through winding, twisting hilly backroads with a full load of luggage and the cxarr handled like it was on rails. None of the leaning found in most SUV's. The car is extremely comfortable to drive for long stretches. The Turn-By-Turn navigation through Onstar is wonderful.
