I Love This Caddy

I never thought I would ever go back to an American car, but here I am with the Caddy. When I wanted to replace my 2004 Toyota Highlander V6 AWD (rode fine after 125K miles, but the cheap and failing interior was getting to me), I started looking in the crossover SUV category. I also wanted a more "luxurious" model, and the only two with exterior styling that appealed to me were the Caddy SRX and the Infiniti FX35. The Caddy looks great inside and out, is extremely comfortable and quiet, and comes with a lot of features. I got the AWD Luxury edition, which has everything I could possibly need, including dual zone climate control, heated seats, parking assist, bluetooth and XM radio. Although there are way more buttons in the center console than I've had in my other cars, they are easy enough to use once you get used to them. I also love the handling of the car, and the steering feels very responsive. I agree with other reviewers that the engine is not the most engaging, but it is fine for the type of driving I do. It has forced me to be a little lighter on the accelerator, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I've been averaging about 19 mpg, which is better than I did with the Highlander. As for the Infiniti FX35, although also a great looking car and with a better engine, I just did not feel as comfortable in the driver's seat. It was also $7,500 more similarly equipped and recommends premium gas. So, a month into my new Caddy, I still love it. My wife says I have never been as attached to a car before. I highly recommend this Caddy.

No comparison from the RX350. The SRX is such a pleasing car. I love the subtle details on the inside, and then the outside has such a dramatic "LOOK AT ME!" Exterior. Not dull, and average than the Lexus. Driving it is great! Reviewers complain of the lack of power, but if it had more power then they would complain of the fuel economy. So pick one. Love the car.

Worth Looking at

by from Canton, OH on August 20, 2010

I've owned this crossover for about 2-1/2 months and driven it 3000 miles. It's the 3.0 liter FWD Luxury model. As advertised I get 18 mpg in the city and about 25 mpg on the highway. I haven't had an...
I've owned this crossover for about 2-1/2 months and driven it 3000 miles. It's the 3.0 liter FWD Luxury model. As advertised I get 18 mpg in the city and about 25 mpg on the highway. I haven't had any problems. Something to get use to is the additional shifting of a 6 speed auto transmission and the electric emergency brake. There are too many great options on the car to discuss here. I got the car for $1800 off sticker. Overall we love this vehicle.

The Finest Car I've Ever Owned

I wasn't in the market for a new vehicle, but when I saw the SRX parked at a local Farmer's Market, my head spun around. Walking toward the vehicle, I thought the window sticker would reflect a price of approximately 50K. I was amazed at the sticker price. The following week, I test drove the car, traded my Pacifica in, drove the SRX off of the lot, and never looked back. It handles beautifully, it's richly appointed, and extremely quiet. This vehicle is surely going to give the Lexus RS350 competition!

Fantastic Crossover

I owned several SUV's (MDX & RX 350) before buying the SRX. The SRX beats every other vehicle in its class in styling. It is simply the best looking crossover on the market. Its performance at highway speeds is quiet and smooth with all the power that one needs. The luxury inside makes me feel like I am driving a much more expensive vehicle. GM has out done itself with the 2010 Cadillac SRX. In summary, all I can say is "Wow, way to go GM!"

We test-drove several cars in the class, but loved the styling of the SRX. After test-driving several cross-overs, we chose the SRX after comparing fuel economy, interior/exterior styling, and flexibility of option packages. My favorite car over all I've owned!

I bought an AWD model and it just performs amazingly on the highways and the snow. It handled better than my 4wd Pathfinder. My car is always turning heads and I love the style of it. It actually holds tons of stuff. This is the smartest car on the road. Everything is automatic and makes driving fun.

Got a great deal on a luxury package with rear-dvd and navigation. Comparable makes/models would have cost me at least $3-4k more. Pleased with everything so far (only had it 3 months). My only minor complaints are the lack of power accelerating from a stop and the seats (I like a little bit more of the seats to come around my sides.)

I have owned my for 1 month now, I absolutely love it. I previous had a Chevy Monte Carlo with a V8, so stepping down in the performance was a bit of a change, but I so stepped up in luxury. I have the Crystal Red with black interior. It is a very sweet ride. I think for the other crossovers out there this is worth the look, and even test drive. Once I drove it I was sold.

SRX AWD Performance. I studied all the competition in this category deeply. Test drove the Lexus and several other cars. The Lexus RX was very worthy and individually had many outstanding features, but as a package, it put us to sleep and we did not like it. The Caddy is fun and handles very nicely. Don't expect to win any drag races (or wait for the 2.8T), but if you put it in sport mode, it will shift and drive much more aggressively. Also liked the fact the base engine uses regular gasoline. When I really need to accelerate (not all that often) I can get what I need by putting it in sport mode and/or auto-manual and red-lining it. I also frankly liked the fact that the SRX was easier: fewer packages and fewer options. The Lexus only SEEMS cheaper because EVERYTHING is an option. Once you trick the Lexus out to the same level as the SRX AWD Performance, you are at the same or higher price. And you are still bored silly.
