Second point don't depend on any magazine or organization to check out a car you might be interested in purchasing. Do your own test drives and research. Third point which I didn't really get into is the fact I just don't like or trust Consumer Reports. That's one of the great parts about the First Amendment, Consumer's has the freedom to publish and I have the freedom not to purchase it, read it or recommend it.

    You suggested doing my own research. Just what research can one do on their own that would be more expansive, encompassing, and comprehensive than the three consumer survey groups we have been discussing, the three major automotive magazines mentioned, and reading forums such as this? I test drove about a dozen SRXs before I purchased mine, but that by no means provided the slightest benchmark to determine short or long term vehicle dependability, or a basis on which I/we could extrapolate and draw a reasonable conclusion.

    Re: Cosumer Affairs

    I have one of the first re-designed SRXs ordered in September 2009. I had a piece of trim fall off, but besides that absolutely nothing has been wrong with the car. My brother has a vehicle from another car company that has always been "recommended" by Consumer Reports. The electrical system has caught on fire. The steering has gone out and now that they have done a recall on the steering he is getting the runaround trying to recoup his cost for the repairs he paid for out of pocket.
    Is Consumer Reports wrong? No. They do a review and then rely on members to share their experiences with the product. Do I trust everything they say? No.

    I just purchased my 2012 SRX and its a bit early for CR to have made a recommendation regarding the 2012 SRX. I have less than a 1000 miles with no problems.

    Edmunds.com said, "Thanks to some improvements this year, the 2012 Cadillac SRX is a more well-rounded and appealing luxury crossover." Read the full review here: http://www.edmunds.com/cadillac/srx/...suv#fullreview

    PJ, you did research on your own by driving a dozen SRX's. Everything you read is research and I'm not saying I don't read some car magazines because I do. I also spoke with owners and mechanics. The bottom line for me is that I bought a car which I was right for apparently both of us.
