    My 2006 Cadillac SRX just died.

    My husband was driving the 2006 SRX when it suddenly jerked and stopped. We had the car for 5 months and we brought back to the dealer for service. They think it is the transmission. Has anyone had
    problems like this? I am upset because Im still paying for it. It has 72,000 miles and its 8 years old.

    what engine? V6 or V8?
    Trans issues are pretty rare on the SRX / STS lineup (they share the same drivetrain)...

    I have not heard of one transmission going yet. It could be some other drivetrain related issue.

    My 04 V8 slips for a few seconds at cold start up but then runs great. When new it would only do it when really cold and dealer told me it is normal. Only normal until the warranty expires and then it is a problem. About a $3000 problem at that. Anyway 199000 miles and hopefully lasts another 100000 before I replace it.

    My 04 SRX V8 AWD does the same thing when cold.Informed dealer of it and their response was "if it doesn't flip any codes,all is good" Has 70k plus and running great. Must be the nature of the beast! Did improve a little after trans. fluid change @60k. Owners manual recommends change @100k under normal use but mechanic said fluid was pretty dark and nasty looking. Glad I had it done then.

    And yet another here, 2004 V8 AWD 86k. Doesn't really seem to slip that much, more like you can't feel it engage in drive like you can in reverse. I usually shift from drive to reverse a time or two until I can feel it grab. I've changed the filter and refilled with dex 6 but it didn't seem to help that much.
