: Added an SRX to the stable...

When I bought my Vagon, my wife pretty much rolled her eyes. She basically said, "Whatever. I just don't see you in a Cadillac, and I really have no interest in a station wagon." She's drives my 6-speed Corvette mostly, and occasionally took the V grocery shopping. After 6 months of this, she warms up to the V, and Cadillac in general, and decides she wants a 3.6 coupe. We go drive one and she starts eyeballing the SRX, which surprised me.

A few hours later, she makes her decision, and we roll off the lot. Pretty slick SUV, if I do say so myself. The Nav is lightyears ahead of my V, and she's a happy camper.

Go figure...

Shoulda got a 13 SRX with CUE in 2 months. SRX is definitely a nice chick mobile to complement our grandpa cars. :thumbsup: My wife looked at one when we went V shopping too. Nice fit and finish in the cabin. Love the duelies.

Very nice!
Recently took my wife's Escalade in for service and got SRX for loaner.
I was impressed with the steering feel.
Overall the car felt top notch...

I couldn't get my wife to go for the SRX. She thought a second CTS V in sedan was oo much so she picks outa top of the line Evoque which was almost the same costs my V. Go figure.

Congrats on the SRX! That is a VERY nice car. Just picked up a 2012 Escalade Hybrid for my wife this past Tuesday. Traded her 2011 Escalade ESV AWD on it and she loves the Hybrid!

That's my eventual plan too :)

Can you still get the 3rd row option in the 2012-2013 SRX?

No 3rd row - just front buckets and 60/40 rear and then cargo area.

Hey congrats you two the new family member looks great. We just got back from the long beach race and events so ill be sure to send you some pics of an awsome weekend. My better half wants me to have to pass a msg to your better half and let her know she loves her pick of the srx. For some reason i see the srx sitting in the driveway sooner than my future Vwagon build. Talk to you soon amigo.

Thanks Man, she loves it. She giggled (again) when I showed her your post... Looking forward to seeing the pics. Thinking of trying another Vegas V meet, maybe more than two of us will show up this time. See you then...
