I have a 2005 SRX and have a problem with the DIC. It usually shows more gallons used than the tank holds (by about 7 to 9 gallons). Needless to say that this throws off all the calculations such as MPG, gallons used, etc. Additionally, I think it's related, my radio personal settings constantly revert back to a default setting. My specific bass, treble, etc. controls reset by themselves.
Those polite customer service reps are really an "outsource" company from Oregon. They tell me to live with the problem since, "there is no fix for the problem at this time". The dealer has replaced a gas tank sensor, but the problem is the DIC. Now they want to send me an arbitrator form to arbitrate the problem. All I want is for the system to work as it should (like my other Cadillac's).
I guess I'll try and take it back to the dealer, again. I don't know.

Yeah, you can program the locks. Read the owners manual.

Would you please find out what the service dept did to get rid of the rattles and squeaks in your ultraview? I am now on my 5th visit to the service dept for the rattles and sqweaks. The dealer service dept that I use just does not seem to have a clue.

Sorry, I did not come back to you. I had the car sent to for the mainenance service, so I did not get a chance to see the service rep. But I did call him a few days ago and he promised he will ask the technitial and come back to me. My mistake, I did nto follow up and obviouly this was no his priority list. I will follow up again.

I too am on my 4th radio in 4 months. I love my SUV but the radio is not the quality you would expect in a cadillac.

My o4 SRX has 3700 miles on it and has more rattles than my 01 Yukon with 137K miles, I am thinking that it is due to all the plastic they have used on the interior. I drove the new Pathfinder last week, could not believe the difference in the quietness of the two vehicles. Dealer has pretty much told me to live with the problem, does anyone have any ideas on how to make the vehicle quieter??

you best get the vehicle looked at once. I never had any rattle sound or any problems with the sunroof. Until while driving on the highway the sunroof just exploded from the top of the vehicle. I always keep my sunroof visor open in my vehicle, but that day my co-worker was driving my car and he mentioned an article he had read about the sunroof shattering. I advised there was no way it was this vehicle that I would of gotten a re-call letter on such a big problem. At that time after our conversation, feeling a little unsteady about the conversation we had just had I decided to close my sunroof visor.....Well traveling back home that evening the unthinkable did in fact happen....it sounded like a gunshot went off in my car, we of course thought it was an accident that occured near us, but to find out in seconds that the sunroof had exploded off my vehicle vehicle. An angel must of been watching out for us that day, because what could of happened is just horrifying to think about. Lucky for us my co-worked had good control of the vehicle at time of occurance and he did not hit the concrete wall or veer off to the other lane. This occurance could of caused a major accident with multiple cars involved and also major injuries or even death to a lot of people. Just an fyi.....National highway safety was notified by me, GM customer complaints have been notified and also my car dealer. NONE of them feel that this situation requires a re-call because investigations are still going on. I am not sure how many people have to go thru what I went thru, or if they are waiting for someone to get seriously hurt or killed, but I feel the consumers should be aware as others driving on the same path as someone driving these vehicles. The worse part I have advised them I do not feel safe in this vehicle do not want it back and want out of lease to go into another GM vehicle that I feel is safe. GM does not want to work with me on this and feels what happened does not warrant a recall or replacing the vehicle at this time. There is so much more to this event and what I have had to go thru the last two weeks that anyone can imagine.
Please, get your car looked at, this can happen to you also without any warning. I unfortunatley just received my car back and dont even want to drive it, but yet I still have to make payments on a vehicle which I feel is unsafe because GM and my dealership gave me no other alternative.
I want as many consumors to know about this because it is a safety issue and a life or death situation. I will find a way or avenue to get this out to the public. A vehicle can be replaced but a human life is not replaceable and you can not put a $ amount to someone life. This does come down to the $$$$'s. Good luck and please do take my advice and get your vehicle checked, I beg of you!!!!
Anyone else who is reading this, please if you own this vehicle and it has the extended sunroof, get it checked out at once.....even though they do not have a conclusion or a fix and are still investigating it, have your dealer check it out throughly....by the way on their expense not yours..

Hi, I finally got the time and opportunity to ask my dealer workshop about the roof fix. Unfortunantly it was not what I expected.... they told me they just greased teh thing. That is it.... I talked to the technitial my self and he confirmed that he only greased it. Caddilacs here are covered by free periodic maintainance for 60,000 mi. The workshop periodically grases the sunroof assembly every other peridic maintainace, this keeps them quite. They tell me they have no complains at all from their customers.
For the record. my roof only aquecked, i.e., there were no ratels, just squeeks and creeks. The dealer told me about the problem as i was buying but assured me of a fix if it ever happened, and they fulfilled their promise.
Sorry, it is so simple it is dissapointing, and it would be surprising if your dealer haven't thought of such a simple fis. but this is what i am told and it sure worked for me.

At 25,000 km my 04 SRX is in the workshop for its first waranty repair; the pedal assembly was stuck and unadjustable. It have been in the workshop for 4 days now and is proving to be a very difficult fix. Other wise no problems.
On another note: this roof shatter problem seems to be only on the 05 models.

A friend of mine has taken delivery of a new SRX...not sure if it's a 2005 or 2006 but how would a dealer's service dept check for a glass that was about to explode?
PS. Tmacguy, might want to run the spell check before posting
