My father is checking out an 04 srx the dealer has, it's part of a deal for his severly screwed up 00 sts.
I'm curious since we live in NJ, how the 2wd model performs in the snow and other elements.
I'm a mustang guy, so rwd makes me paranoid in the snow, but that's a very low tech car, i'm hoping the caddy is 1000% better, but i'd like to hear from you guys that have experience.

I have an 06 2WD. I live in Wisconsin - lotsa snow. It is surprisingly good - traction control and stabilitrak are quite effective. No problems, go for it...but be careful about the tires. Check them out on one of the tire company sites, like tirerack.com.

I had an 04 CTS with TC, stabilitrak, and a good set of snow tires in Michigan. I used that car as my DD for one winter and had very few problems. I never got stuck, but had a couple challenges on one drifted dirt road and when I came home to my steep driveway with snow over ice. A couple running starts got me to the top and into the garage.

That said, I'm sticking with AWD for my winter DD mainly due to my driveway.

thanks guys, it actually landed up being awd, his mistake, and he bought it.
Not going to miss the old 2000 sts, what a pos that was.
