If this vehicle truly looks as good as it does in the pictures and they are able to undercut the price of the 2010 Lexus RX with good feature content, Cadillac might just have a hit on its hands.
They certainly got my attention, and I'm leasing an '07 RX350 that I really enjoy and was even thinking of buying the RX at the end of the lease. But I'd like to see the SRX in person.

Isn't this a moot point since Sirius and XM have merged??

Yeah, I'm not sure I get that at this point with the economy being the way it is. You'd think being that it is one of the Big 3, that they would make the new Caddy in the U.S.

DON'T do it! Worst move I ever made was to leave Lexus for this piece of junk. This car Is 14 months old and I have been to service dept 10 times.

Ouch!! I'm sorry to hear of your problems, Miked22. I've had the "RX" for over two-and-half years, and with the exception of a rattle in the middle seats that eventually was corrected, I've had no problems at all. Maybe I'd better buy my RX afterall so I can see how these new SUV's such as the Cadillac and the Audi Q5 fair as far as quality and reliability goes for their first or second year out.(That is, unless I get lured into getting the 2010 RX.)

The Cadillac is so bad that I have a lemon law case against GM as we speak. Worst move ever to leave Lexis. They are so good you take them for granted. I had 3 lexus vehicles all with zero problems
#793 of 804 All Wheel Drive Designation
Dec 28, 2009 (9:19 pm)
I am looking to acquire a used all wheel drive SRX, 2006 or 2007, V6 but preferably the V8. My problem is that when doing the searches either through Auto Trader or dealer web sites, the write-ups all too frequently "conveniently" omit whether the available vehicle has all wheel drive or a third row seat!
It is my understanding that starting with the 2007 model year and following the rear hatch has the designation plate "SRX4" on the right hand side if the car has all wheel drive, whether the car is a V6 or a V8.
Is this correct? If this is the case, and the write up says nothing about rear wheel drive or all wheel drive, I could at least tell from a rear photo shot. I can tell if there is a third row seat from photos because if the seat is folded down at least the third row seat belts are a dead giveaway.
Sorry for such an elementary question, but I suspect that often times these details are conveniently left off the e-listing to get a prospective buyer to email or call the dealer.
Thank you for a prompt response!

The 4wd models do have the 4 on the back. The third row seats are simply an option. Beware, this car is junk. Cadillac service people admitted to me that this vehicle was not built to Cadillac standards. You need to look at other vehicles.

Don't know where you are from, but I just traded in my 2005 SRX with 36K miles at Rizza Cadillac in Tinley Park, IL. That vehicle was almost perfect in every way and had every option offered (including AWD but the Ad says RW drive, that's wrong) except V8. Some one is going to get a really good car. they're asking $19,900K.
I just had to have a 2010 SRX in platinum ice because it is so hot-looking in white with the chrome accents and florescent lighting pipes along side the front headlamps. I felt guilty the first day when I bought it because there was nothing wrong with my 2005 SRX. But now that I've had it 2 weeks, I'm crazy in love with the new car.

We are from North of Boston and purchased a certified pre-owned 2007 from a Cadillac dealer with 26K miles last night. Well under NADA price. V8 awd with every option except magnetic ride, including the 3rd row seat. Bought the extended warranty which keeps us covered bumper to bumper for another 3.5 years. Carfax checked out before we even went to look at the car. Body unmarked. Interior clean. Close to like new as you are going to get. With a set of new Michelins (about $1000 at Tire Rack prices). Test drove in 13 degree weather without a squeak or rattle.
Re the car being junk as someone pointed out......these forums do attract the folks who have had issues with the vehicle, some repetitive and some unresolved. We hope we avoid some of them with the 4.8L V8 and the clean Carfax which had vehicle service info.
