You are in the Cadillac SRX
What is this discussion about?
Cadillac SRX, SUV
Apr 11, 2010 (5:37 pm)
Hi, Guys. I went by my local Cadillac dealer in Tampa today before they opened up so I could take a look at the 2010 SRX's on the lot. Apparently, this dealership is now offering 18-inch chome wheels for the Luxury model, priced at around $2,495. They look very nice, much better than the regular 18-inchers that have been coming on the Luxury models.
One thing that I did not like that this dealership seems to be doing is adding a bunch of protection packages on a little side slip of paper in addition to the sticker that's on the car. It's unbelievable! There's about $1200 of add-ons such as paint protection, leather seat protection, something called Zylon -- don't know what that's for -- and something else. I'm wondering if those of you who have purchased the 2010 SRX had to deal with these add-ons and if you were able to refuse them.
I also saw a black SRX 2.8 Turbo with 270/45-20-inch spider-type rims on it. It was gorgeous! Reminded me of almost like an Infiniti FX, but prettier.
I really wasn't expecting to feel this way, but it looks like the 2010 SRX has jumped ahead of the 2010 RX350, which is saying a lot, as I'm coming from a 2007 RX350 with four months left on my lease!

I believe that the spare tire comes standard on the SRX in Canada. Have your dealer contact GM Canada and see if they can supply the spare tire kit for you.

I am from GM Customer Service. I apologize that no one has gotten back with you. The spare tire option is available for the fleet and government vehicles only at this time. However, I would check with your local dealership to see if they have a spare tire for your vehicle. Thank you,
Mariah GM Customer Service

Cadillac dealers in the Florida panhandle do not have dealer add on's on 2010 SRX's. ( Sam Taylor Ft. Walton Beach, Vince Wiebe Pensacola) They will also discount.

Thanks for responding, jim1462. The funny thing is, for the 2010
Lexus RX350, the local Lexus dealer is also doing the little add-ons also, which this dealer did not do back in '06 when I got my Lexus!

Yes, the spare tire kit is available. I'd planned to pick one up but still haven't done it.There was a price increase and the last quoted price I saw was $336 + shipping.
By the way, I've had my SRX for just over a month now and *love* it.

That's unfortunate about the add-ons. The dealer I purchased from didn't have the extras. I did opt for a paint protection/3M clear shield kit that was installed after purchase.

I followed up on an earlier email and found out today that the kit is available. Apparently the kit includes the encasing, the donut tire and the jacks. The price I was quoted that includes the kit, shipping and installation was $600. I agree this make a great car even better. A note of thanks to the person that shared with me that the kit was available in Canada - this encouraged me to follow-up on the item. The salesman originally told me that a kit was not available.

I just purchased the SRX Luxury Collection w/Nav & Sunroof. The car have a very nice ride and is very comfortable. I went to two dealerships & the salesperson at the first one told me that the car could be set to have the remote in your purse & the car door would open. The second salesperson told me that you pull on the handle once & the second time you pull it, it opens the car (with the remote in your purse). After I had the car for one day, I called the dealership where I purchased the car to find out how to program the keyless entry. The feature that operates the keyless entry is called keyless access. This feature is not even available until you get to the Premium level.

That's correct. It's only available on the top premium model and is referred to as Passive Entry in the book. There is a little square visible on the door handle for the SRx's that have this feature
