I think the option packages on the SRX are OK. It's biggest competitor, the RX350, doesn't have AWD, sunroof, heated seats, or a 3rd row seat as standard equipment.
#102 of 131 New SRX with some miles
Jan 29, 2007 (6:42 am)
After shopping online and visitn 3 other dealerships, I just leased a 2007 SRX for the best price around. I got a
2007 V6 SRX w/Premium package ($4100) and utility package ($1125), in White Diamond. MSRP is $43,455. I put down $2000 in GM Mastercard rewards and for a39 month lease w/15,000 miles/year I am paying $470.00 per month, plus tax for a grand total of $498.20.
They had others vehicles in other colors with the same options that were $40 more per month, but they said this one was an "older age model", meaning it was one of the first few they got in from Detroit in October, so there was some add'l rebate Cadillac was providing them on it.
My only concern was that it had 130 miles on it and I've never bought or leased a new car with more than 15 miles on it. I made them check the computer to see how those miles got there and when it arrived at the dealership on Oct 24, it already had the 130 miles (I actually saw this). They said it was not a dealerhisp transfer, nor a demo. They said that maybe it was used as a test model by the factory. Never believing anything a dealership says, I'm skeptical, however, I still think I got a good deal and since its a lease, as opposed to a purchase, I'm O.K. with it.
Anyone ever heard of such high mileage on a new car?

Try this one on for size: I am taking delivery of a 2007 SRX AWD this weekend, luxury collection (V6), Black/Black, third row seat. 48 months, 12K miles, and trading a 4-year old Olds minivan with 90K miles......$340 per month (tax included), with $500 down. Hard to believe, but I trust the dealer who has done business with my brother for years. I even got to order the car color I wanted!
The dealer down the road wanted to charge $475/mo, and wouldn't budge.

Hi fgs! Sounds like you got a good deal, but its hard to compare apples to oranges. The cars sound the same, but my lease is for 39 months and 15,000 miles, whereas yours is 48 months and 12,000 miles. Your lease is based on a lower residual because it will be older when it is turned in, and mine will have more miles on it. Also, I don't know what they allowed in your trade toward the down payment.

I am picking up a 2005 SRX V8 AWD tonite. It comes with vistaroof, loaded, 30,000 miles for 29,500. Thing is this adge of car in a 3 yr plan with a ballon payment (or lease, bank buy back, etc) the residual after 36mths will be 23,500 with 15000/yr. That gets me a payment of 270/mth. How's tha for a great deal. By the way it's a US vehicle imported into Canada. I can't wait. We have tonnes of snow up here near the Western NY border and the AWD will be very welcome.
Ps This is the finest north american vehicle I have driven and i only hope that the reliabilty is there and I will become a long time GM convert.

how much did you get for the mini-van on trade, if i can get it down to around 300, i might go for the srx, but i need a functioning 3rd row that is somewhat comfy
#107 of 131 New 2007 Pricing
Mar 13, 2007 (6:47 am)
Correct me if I am wrong, but I priced an 07 V8 loaded except for the third row seat and DVD entertainment system from the Cadillac site and Edmunds and both MSRP's came in at around $49,700. Is this correct? Reading postings where folks purchased 04's, 05's, and some 06's their MSRP's were in the mid $50k.
#108 of 131 which is the better deal?
Mar 13, 2007 (2:54 pm)
A fully loaded 2007 SRX MSRP is $45,000. Selling price is $41,750 which includes a $2250 rebate. Lease with $3650 down is $581 for 36 months. Lease with $1650 is $643. includes tax and 12000 miles per year.
The base SRX MSRP of $37855. Selling price is $35,527. Lease with $3650 down is $491. With $1650 down is 552. includes tax and 12000 miles per year
or are they all lousy deals?

I just did the following deal 2 weeks ago:
base cap cost: 43640.5
cash rebate: 2250
add acquisition fee: 595
net cap cost: 41985.5
Interest Rate: 3.95%
OOP: First month+tax/title/reg around $865.00
Monthly pmt: $567 incl tax
So based on my numbers I would say not a good deal. You should be able to get invoice or $500 below before the rebate.

Oh and this was 12K for 39 months. The car had 966 miles on it and they threw in one of those mesh grills at no additional cost.
