2006 Cadillac SRX Review:
I acquired a 2006 SRX a few days ago as a used (excuse me, 'preowned') car. After spending many weeks searching for the 'perfect' SRX on AutoTrader.com, I live in Atlanta and found my cream-puff SRX at a GM dealer in Tennessee: 43k miles, 1-owner Florida lease car, clear CarFax, every conceivable option except NAV, pearl white with tan leather, premium performance package, OnStar, XM, etc. Wowee!
Anyway, I digress... This is an awesome machine! It strikes a very nice balance between utility and sport sedan-like performance. I wanted 7-passenger capacity for those occasional times when extra friends need a lift. The exterior styling is aggressive and I think it's even more in style in 2009 than 3 years ago. The leather interior is luxurious and very comfortable for my 6'2" frame, plus seat adjustment range is excellent. I am especially impressed with the sophisticated personalized driver interface, making nearly every electronic feature programmable to suit your whims (it's taking me days to customize all the various user functions).
Mechanically, the SRX is solidly built and nothing on it seems cheaply made. The UltraView sunroof is awesome, and it's a treat to see so much sky. On a less positive note, the 3rd row seats are difficult to get into, and it requires gymnastic agility. Luckily, I won't ever have to sit back there. On the plus side, the 3rd row has its own sunroof glass with power shade! This is a sweet SUV and it's a blast to drive. Get this car.
