#631 of 804 GREAT DISSAPOINTMENT !!!!!
Mar 24, 2006 (5:07 pm)
I purchased a new SRX for my wife in August 2005 with a MSRP $48,985.00. It has the Luxury Pkg., Ultraview, Nav, etc, etc... It has been 231 days since I purchased the SRX and it has been in the garage for 58 days and counting. I have been to two different dealers with multiple attempts to resolve the problems but nothing has changed. I have filed with the Florida BBB for the Lemon Law but Cadillac has done nothing to help the situation. It is extremely dissapointing to have a vehicle with such major problems but, it is even more so when the manufacturer does nothing but try to intimidate you.

What problems are you having with your SRX? Do you have the V6 or V8?

I have a V6 with all options. I just got the SRX bqck from the garage after a total of 62 days in the shop. I have had problems with the Ultraview ( will not close, rattles, squeeks, etc. ) Nav system that cannot find a direct route to my home, dash lights that pulsate, power windows that work at random, trip odometer that resets itself, etc., etc.
I have a hearing scheduled for next week for the Lemon Law which could be interesting. I have received some interest from a Consumer Support Group to attend the hearing. No cameras allowed in hearing but all will be recorded.
#634 of 804 SRX V6 Transmission
Apr 12, 2006 (7:50 am)
I have a 2004 SRX VS AWD that over the last 6 to 8 months has developed a very strange shudder when going 35-40 mph, tach just at or below 2000 rpm and in 4th gear. If cruising along and slightly press accelerator the thumping/shudder begins and you can physically feel it. It seems to be searching for 3rd gear which it does not engage unless I further press the accelerator quite a bit. In for service twice now - first time they 'couldn't replicate'. Yesterday I took the tech with me and demonstrated it - he acknowledged it. When picking up the car they said nothing is wrong with it; there are no service bulletins, etc. I explained that this was not how the car operated when I first got it (new). Any one with similar transmission issues? Any suggestions/solutions?

Bought a 2004 CPO SRX AWD w/V8 on e-bay from a Cadillac dealer near Akron, OH. Should be here next week. Based on my research the V8 comes standard with everything but the dvd, navigation, and magnetic ride, so this must be a base model. It has the power 3rd row seat, large sunroof, etc. Looking forward to driving it. Haven't owned an American car in 10 years, and this will be the first GM we have ever bought.
At less than $30k and only 21k miles for a CPO, I figured I couldn't lose too much money.
btw.. anyone have experience with the Cadillac CPO program and extended warranty?

#637 of 804 Interior Redesign for 07 SRX ??
Apr 14, 2006 (6:20 pm)
I am in the market for a crossover. I think I have my choices narrowed down to the Cadillac SRX or Infiniti FX (still undecided on V6 or V8). I am anxiously waiting get confirmation of the rumored interior redesign on the SRX for the 07 model year. Has anyone seen or heard more about this? I was hoping there might be more info about it after the New York show. I have yet to see anything at all.

This message is actually for anyone looking at this vehicle. My advice is RUN in the other direction. I have a 2005 SRX. In December of 2005, my daughter had a rather significant car accident. All passengers were fine, the car however was not. Today is April 16,2006. I still do not have my car back. All do to cadillacs inability to provide a part. Whatever your alternative is, go for that instead.

bert1102 thanks for your input. Glad to hear your daughter and all passengers were fine. I have to say that speaks well for the safety of the SRX. I am in the retail business myself and while I completely understand the frustration of backorders, I also know that sometimes the situation is beyond control of the manufacturer.
Best of luck to you.
