Car & Driver, Long-Term Test: SRX V8

7 posts in this topic

Overall, they liked it a lot. The problems they encountered were... Stalling (reconnecting battery per incident was a temporary fix; bad engine control module was to blame) UltraView sunroof cracked (15,842 miles) Key and remote faulty (20,411 miles) Wobbly gearshift Interior rattles Squeaks from steering column Their complaints of the car itself were limited to the wide rocker panels, which hindered ingress/egress, visibility, trip computer, and interior quality. The cost to service/maintain it over 40K miles was $701, and they averaged 17 MPG, with a fuel cost of $5671. "All in all, our long-term SRX V-8's performance will help, not hurt, its chances of secruing a third-straight 5Best Trucks trophy. And even as GM's employee-discount deal was scheduled to be called off September 6, screaming deals on an SRX are likely not out of the question, especially since the cars are flying off dealer lots like penguins. A sensible Caddy at a sensible price -- what more could you want?" 2005 Cadillac SRX V-8 Price as tested: $60,645 0-60: 7.1/6.8 (new/40,000 miles) 0-100: 18.3/17.5 5-60: 7.5/7.2 1/4 mile: 15.4@92/15.2@93 70-0: 188 ft/183 ft 300 ft skidpad: 0.78g/0.79g Top speed: 141 mph/144 mph Scheduled service/repair stops: 3 Unscheduled service/repair stops: 4 Edited by empowah

What were the positives?

They liked its power, manumatic feature, transmission smoothness, surprising nimbleness, smooth and quiet highway ride, exterior design, cargo space, and DVD entertainment.

Oh Ven- that's obviously completely irrelevant.

I'd be surprised if it won the 5-best trucks again. The competition has caught up in terms of handling and powertrain, and the SRX was never on top in interior quality.
