First Time Cadillac Buyer..and the 2013 SRX

I purchased my 2013 Cadillac SRX Premium Edition in mid July 2013. Simply Put: The GREAT Things: -I love the exterior styling -I love the interior styling -I love the quality of the interior, the stitched dashboard, the layout of the dashboard, the color options, the interior lighting and the CUE System -I love the SPORTS MODE Transmission-Awesome, vehicle takes off like a rocket!!! -The Safety Features are OVER-The-TOP Awesome, including the Adaptive Cruise Control and the BEST rear camera system on the planet. The Questionable: -I personally love the "heaviness" of the vehicle. It drives hard/heavy and this is something I like. I wouldn't say it drives like a TRUCK, but it surely doesn't drive like a luxury car either. This is a preference and I like the stiffer feel and the security of being within a more solid feeling vehicle. Some people would prefer a more Nimble or Agile type of drive, for those people.. I would recommend to buy a car. The I-Need-Improvement Category: -The CUE system works awesome, but the glass they use is a Magnet for FINGERPRINTS!! I find myself cleaning it Everyday!!! -I felt my transmission got a little loose after putting 1500 miles on the vehicle. I sense a slight drag time upon acceleration at times.. -The seats have nice feathers such as heat and air cooled... but I do find them a tad hard for a "luxury vehicle". Also, at this level vehicle, I would have liked to have the option of purchasing "massaging seats". On my long drives, a nice vibration/back rub would be great.. Final Thoughts You have to buy what you LOVE. My financial situation allowed me to purchase any of the top brands, but at the end I chose the SRX because I found it more eye appealing (inside and out), because it "didn't drive" like a car, that it had a pretty quick step in the Sports Mode option and overall had just about all the bells & whistles (including an air cooled glove box to keep items cool on your drives) -

Vehicle perfomsgreat on regular fuel and provides good handling for a crossover. Seats are a bit stiff but comfotable. Bose surround audio is awesome and the navigation is easy to use. big and bold information center also. The U-rail cargo system is a real asset for this vehicle. Loaded with goodies that will please anyone.

I am very pleased with the new SRX Performance model I purchased. It handles beautifully, looks great and has a convenient and comfortable interior design. I love the sunroof that goes clear through to the back seat. The All Wheel Drive climbs up my steep, snowy driveway with no problem, and slipping on icy roads is corrected in a split second. I thought I wouldn't need the heated steering wheel, but I am using it every day, along with the heated seats. The light that indicates cars in my blind spots has been especially helpful when changing lanes. I am really enjoying the 10 point Centerpoint sound system and the driver assistance and alert systems. I feel very confident with the car, and I couldn't be happier.

Best car in its class

After an exhaustive search it was an easy decision! Yes, it wasn’t the least expensive of my choices and it also wasn’t the most expensive either, but it was a hand down decision taking all the factors into consideration. Style; by far I thought it was the classiest choice. Handling; compared to some of the other SUV’s it was by far the best riding. A smooth ride that made feels you were in a luxury car. The pick-up was strong and it felt very safe. Interior; I was shocked as to the lack of sophistication, workmanship, and quality of materials most of the other SUV’s had. Here the SRX far surpasses all the others. The new CUE system was like I was operating my iPad. There always seems to be a learning curve when you buy a new car and need to learn all the controls. Not so with the CUE system. Over all I’m glad I took the time to research all my choices and I’m extremely delighted with my new SRX!

First GM product I ever bought

Bought a new Luxury SRX with 20 inch chrome wheels, trailer provision, driver awareness package and cargo management in August 2013. My previous ride was a 2005 RX 330 that has been a very good vehicle, so I was biased towards a new RX350 Lexus. The Cadillac won me over with better looks, more comfortable leather seats, and more power. The dash and the CUE system is spectacular and the driver awareness feature keeps you in the lanes and helps with parking. I was surprised at how well the SRX accelerates and handles. The interior finishes beat the the others we looked at. It is the most comfortable car I have ever owned. The gas mileage will be a couple of miles per gallon less than the RX, but the Cadillac is heavier, faster, and I believe safer than the others. We will see about long term reliability, but so far, (2000 miles), no problems. Cadillac picks up all maintenance for the first 4 years or so. The last GM product I was using regularly was my parents 1965 Impala. If this CUV holds up, another Cadillac will be in my future. I am very impressed by what Cadillac has done.

I have been looking at and researching this car for a long time. I test drove it a couple of times and in the end, it became one of my top 2 choices overall. The other choice was less accommodating, with less features but a sturdy and a very unique look. The staff at the dealership where I bought the SRX was very knowledgeable and ready to serve. They found and brought in the vehicle with all the exact specifications that I requested. So far, getting used to all the gadgets and operations has been very smooth and easy to maneuver. The ride is smooth and the look is smart. The warranties surpassed all other vehicles and makes I researched. I am pleases, So far so good.

The styling is better than any other crossover that we testdrove. It handles like a heavy luxury car - a little sluggish in ECO mode, but in the normal mode it has plenty of get-up-and-go. The brakes are a little softer than I'm used to from both compact cars and a full size SUV, but they are sufficent. The voice command feature takes time to get it to understand voices. Both my wife and I have had a difficult time with that. Thank goodness that On-Star was standard for a year and interfaces with the CUE system. This is a great crossover for the money.

Our SRX drives and handles smoothly through city traffic with responsive steering and accelleration. We equipped out unit with the mesh grill, chrome accents and side body molding. It's the most attractive vehicle in it's class. We compared it to all the leading luxury SUVs in it's class and felt it compared will with all of them and surpassed most of them. Ergonomics are great, voice controls of devices allow you to focus on driving and the seating is comfortable. Some of the items we didn't like is the cargo areas was slightly smaller than some others in it's class, the rear seat could use a little more spacing and adjusting side mirrors to protect against blind spots was a challenge (but the collision warning system is very effective).
