Acceleration is poor. Blind spots are bad. Key fob does not always work. Too many mechanical problems. Paid way too much to Car Max for a car that was not in great shape when I bought it. I will not return there.
Cadillac dealer has been wonderful to work with.
Horrible engineering and high maintenance cost
2008 Cadillac SRXAlex P. - Charleston, SC04/04/2016
V8 AWD model.
The mechanical engineering of this vehicle and component placement is simple awful. Combine that with overpriced parts and you're in for a maintenance nightmare. I always work on my own vehicles, but this car simply kicked my behind. Under 100K, the following items went bad, incomplete list:
Both front engine mounts $1200 to replace - need to remove exhaust manifold to get to them. Radiator distribution hose $250. Coolant tank $150. HID headlight lamp $100 each + 2 hours in labor (entire front end needs to come apart). Engine coolant temperature sensor - need to drop transmission to get to. Thermostat. A/C blend door actuator. Can't rotate tires, so front wears out way too fast. Battery dies if car sits for over 5 days.
The Cadillac SRX4 is easy to drive. I love the features such as sliding my seat back for me when I get in and out, not to mention the sunroof and most importantly how it notifies me if I forget my key fab. This car is a beauty and glides down the highway. Love it!
Lots of eager shoppers may be surprised to know that many of the features found on some of the latest 2018 vehicles are already available on newer used cars. Here’s a breakdown of some of these cool features.
