Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Cadillac launched the SRX midsize sport utility vehicle as an early 2004 model, available with a V-6 or V-8 under the hood. The 2009 model comes with an Adaptive Remote Start system, which enables drivers to start the engine, adjust the interior temperature and turn on defrosters from up to 200 feet away. Competitors include the Lexus RX 350, Acura MDX and Volvo XC90. The SRX can hold up to seven people with its optional third-row seat.

New for 2009
There are no significant changes to the 2009 Cadillac SRX.

Exterior
The SRX is longer than the RX 350, MDX and XC90 by several inches. Weight distribution approaches 50/50, front to rear. Buyers can add the SRX Sport appearance package, which features front and rear sport additions, a body-colored grille with V-series mesh backing, 4-inch dual polished exhaust tips, a six-speed automatic with Drive Control shift, all-wheel drive and a limited-slip differential.

  • V-shaped grille
  • Seventeen-inch wheels standard on V-6 models
  • Chiseled vertical taillamps
  • SRX V-8 outfitted with 18-inch wheels
  • Twenty-inch wheels optional


Interior
Maximum cargo volume totals 69.5 cubic feet, versus nearly 85 cubic feet for the RX 350, 83.5 cubic feet for the MDX and 85.1 cubic feet for the XC90. Seven occupants can fit inside when an optional, powered, flip-folding third row is installed. Without it, seating capacity is five. All passengers sit higher in the SRX than in a luxury sedan but lower than occupants in a typical SUV.

First and Best Cadillac SUV

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
