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.

I'm looking hard at a 2006 SRX - V8, 5 seater, White Diamond, AWD, UltraView, Rear Air. Was quoted $46,262 and 0% financing for 60 months. In Maryland. Anyone have any comparative experiences with pricing? Thanks.

I would be interested to see if you had any luck getting your situation remedied? The shudder is getting worse week by week and I feel like i'll start losing pieces of the car along the road. It's ridiculous that Cadillac washes their hands of the problem and says "it's within specs". See message 634.

I have a 2001 STS 'CPO' Purchased in July 2004 with only 23K miles on it, it currently has 67k on it at this time, you will need the 6 yr 100K warranty believe me. My car is in the repair shop at Cadillac once per month for problems 3 times for AC problems (2 Compressors 1 AC coolant line replaced, Orifice tube once), bad left front wheel bearing at 45K, both Heated front seats grids replaced, NO Start > Battery dead had to replace battery & battery cable replaced [OnStar] did not work 'NO POWER' had to use cell phone to contact Cadillac Assistance, Security system module replaced, StabiliTrac problem (Steering wheel position sensor replaced), underhood sound insulatator de-lamination, lower body facia trim fell apart, both rear brake lamps have burned out, Major engine oil leak (required 3 days of mid-section of engine seal & Front & Rear seals replacement), throttle body valve assembly requires cleaning every 25k. However they provide a free loaner vehicle every time. The dealership has been great because they are billing GM $85.00 per hour for labor. GOOD LUCK with your CPO, you will need it. Buy either German or Japanese in the future.

Still wanting to know if anyone knows anything specific about the 07' redesign? I am debating on taking advantage of the close of the model year pricing OR waiting for a new improved SRX.
Does anyone know anything?

Just let me say I've given up on this vehicle and GM in total. The drive line thump is still there and the transmission shutter remains. I'm told however all of this is normal so I guess the unknown running gear growl will be normal as well. This pile of junk will be off warrantee in some 1200KM so the only way I'll get the problems solved is sell or trade it off which will be done. I would like to trade it off to a GM dealer so they would be stuck with the used vehicle warrantee they give with a dealer deal however that would mean buying another GM product which is not going to happen. The only satisfaction I am getting is warning people who inquire how I like the SRX just what my experience has been and point out the problems GM would not acknowledge and fix.
#647 of 804 2007 UPDATE!

Not only will the 07 SRX get the newer interior but it will
get the 6 speed transmission too!!
Hopefully in '08 it will get the 305 HP Direct Injection V6.
