: Went to buy a hummer h2....came home with a caddy srx!!!

I have been looking for something interesting and a little out of the box to drive and the H2 seemed like just the ticket! A local Cadillac dealer had one( 2007) on his lot so I decided to take her for a spin. She was pretty nice....a real Beast!!! Then came the financing options and also the maintenance/warranty considerations.....Not at all attractive. So I was bummed out.
Ive also had a fancy for the CTS , V Coupe and the SRX & my initial inquiry to the salesman was an off the cuff...so...so "those are nice ..those CTS's.... then He did his job.... as any good salesman should and sold me on the prospect of getting into a brand new car...specifically a Smart Lease which put many worries to rest.
Although there were at least 100 Gorgeous CTS's to chose from...I wanted something with some "Heff".....the SRX seemed to look as good as an "ugly woman at closing time" :alchi: How about this one...pointing to a Black over chrome 2012......"Hey thats nice".... I said :)....I'll get the key the salesman said.....and the rest is history!!!! :cloud9: I am now the proud owner of a brand spanking new 2012 Black Beauty SRX and I love her !! :worship::worship:
When I arrived home my wife was surprised...expecting the Hummer....but she was very impressed with the look of the Caddy and my 7 yr old son Vince called it a Darth Vader Space Ship!! Hey He's not to far off...lots of bells & whistles....Im going to enjoy my weekend off playing with and driving my new SRX!!! :burn:

I'd say you bought the better car. Congrats! :)

Congrats and welcome! Very nice purchase. Although I do have to say I'd never let a salesman talk me into a car I didn't go there for. Especially of a whole different genre. But nice purchase non the less!

Congratulations on the proper choice! They're pretty cool little cars. Welcome to the club!

Welcome to the forum. I think you need to send that salesman a thank you card. Sounds like he did you a big favor! Hope you and Darth have a long and happy relationship.
