You need to be sure the nozzle is inserted properly into the tube receptacle of the gas tank. Gas pumps have a pressure sensor that cuts off the flow of gasoline when it detects a change in the flow pressure. If the tip of the nozzle makes contact with the interior of the tube, the flow pressure drops significantly triggering the cut off.
Give that a try and tell us how it works out for you.

Earth to Tiko......Tidester, hope your suggestion worked for him. Or perhaps his SRX gets 80mpg and he hasn't had to refuel yet.

This seems to be a common problem with the 2010 SRX. Caddillac has issued a bulletin on it - #P10063. I complained about the same problem and we visited the dealers gas pump and it worked on his pump. Meanwhile, I can get it to work on some gas pumps and not others. I bet they fix it for 2011!

Bought my SRX the end of June. I have a feeling that Cadillac corrected this problem. I had a number of fill ups with no problem at all. It seems looking at the area where the nozzle goes to fill up you car has an angle at the insertion point that stops this problem from happening. I am thankfull that I bought my srx late in the season so problems like this and fine tuning of the transmission must have occurred.

I purchased my Cadillac SRX 2010 premium collection in Sepember 2009. I am having same issue. we have been living with this misery for two years now, took it to local dealer 3 times they said all the new cars do that where you can not latch the gas lever you have to constantly hold the nozzle to pump the GAS , i have driven many new cars even new DTS i don't see this issue on new or old cars. I am about to file Lemon law claim on this. It is really terrible when my wife drive with infant its a great deal of hassle to pump the gas when you have baby in a car seat and you are alone often times i have to get the gas in her srx before going to work. Any help will be much appreciated. Please respond ASAP what was your fix and what happened. I will really appreciate it. Thank You
#11 of 13 Black Raven paint chipping on door edges

2010 SRX purchased December 2009.
I have noticed that the paint is chipping badly on the very thin edges of my doors. Even the back doors which we don't use have chips. My dealer is fixing some other paint issues but doesn't feel that these are warrantied. Has anyone else noticed this? Any luck having it repainted under warranty?
