#475 of 804 Free sunroofs in 2005?
May 11, 2004 (3:20 pm)
I was talking to a Cadillac dealer's salesman today, and he said that there is currently a $1500 rebate on cars without a sunroof, in addition to the $1000 rebate on all SRXs. (Maybe this only applies to V8s, I'm not sure.) This suggests to me that the sunroofs are going to be included with the '05 V8s at little or no additional cost. He said that there is also "conquest cash" available to those who can prove that they own some other brand of car. Looks like they're getting serious about moving the SRXs.

I went to take delivery of my new SRX with the optional trailering package and I too was minus a trailer HITCH and when I asked they had NO idea. Turns out they went on the internet and found someone who had to add the HITCH and they told me they would have to cut out a part of the bumper - hmmm what does that do to the warranty if there were an accident? Well, I paid GM up front the money believing I would get a HITCH as you do on the Trailblazer and Escalada. Heck - I should have ordered the Escalade but I was ASSURED that the trailer hitch was available. I even had them write it into the contract. The dealership will do nothing for me... I can not tow anything.... but they were willing to take my money up front for the "TOWING PACKAGE" V92.
The dealership was stupid enough to show me the posting they pulled off the internet - where another owner ordered the hitch and the dealer sold it to him at cost... but they won't make that same offer to me.
I have not yet taken delivery of my SRX and have lost my enthusiasm for it - as I can't tow anything or add the bike attachment unless I fork out another $500-700 CDN (approx.) (Hitch parts plus labour)

I am curious as to how much MORE you had to pay (parts and labour) for the trailer hitch assembly after having previously paid for the V92 trailer package?
I am steaming about this issue.

BE careful and do your research as to what you think you are getting with the towing package versus what you are getting!
There is no hitch included and no hook-up for the trailer lights.
They have to cut out the bumper and attach a hitch - must look awful!
You pay GM a lot of $ up front for an over-sized rad and get little else... definately don't get a trailer hitch!!!!!

I have seen an SRX with a aftermarket hitch that did not require the bumper to be cut.
It did hang fairly low but it looked like there was enough ground clearance.

It was just short of $400. It really is a clean design. If they modified my bumper, I can't see it. Supposedly, now rated to 4500 lbs towing capacity. I have not towed anything yet, but will be towing my trailer and my Harley, next month. Will post then on the experience.
#481 of 804 choice of options

If you had a choice of NAV vs the Moonroof what would you choose. Both are spendy because the NAV is only included in a luxury package while the moonroof price is $1800 there is a $1500 rebate making the cost effectively $3300.
#482 of 804 Cadillac Aware of Rearend Whine
May 25, 2004 (8:17 am)
I am posting this in both the SRX and CTS forums.
Talked with my service manager yesterday about the rearend whine in my SRX.
He says most of them are doing it around 27-29 mph.
Mine starts at 29 mph and goes all the way up to 70 mph.
He has had another SRX in that is much louder than mine.
They could always install another gear set, but he wouldn't guarantee that it would solve it.
He wants me to wait until Cadillac comes up with a fix before he does anything.
Which I am okay with.
The upshot of this post is to let you guys know that Cadillac is well aware of the problem and as of yet does not have a fix, but he expects there will be one soon.

Which version of the SRX is this? The V6, V8 RWD? AWD?

B4Z has a RWD V6 base model.
