    You're allowed to say whatever you'd like here. This forum exists for people who want to come here and rant about their lemons, complain to Cadillac about common problems, poor service, etc. It also exists so we can help each other through sharing information.

    If I seem harsh with my replies to the OP, it's because the last 2 threads have been "the sky is falling" nonsense about the probability of a new vehicle breaking down and devaluing when there's nothing really wrong (apparently) with her SRX. I'm just poking a little fun at her so don't take it personally.

    Good, bad, indifferent, you can put yourself out there in this forum. In doing so you open yourself up to all comments and opinions....including mine.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.

    Re: Value of the SRX

    Something I have noticed is that the original group that posted here about their SRX's seem to have dropped out. I take that to mean that their cars are doing fine and that no new issues have come up. This is a typical cycle in car forums and we can all be thankful that there are no new issues with our great cars.

    Re: Value of the SRX

    I suspect the Lexus 350 forum already know about him all too well. Too bad his mommy still lets him play with the computer. I may be one of those inspectorrudy is talking about that hasn't been around lately. Lots of things going on with work and my father's health have kept me busy. He is also right that our 10 is still performing flawlessly. I asked my wife just the other day if she was about ready to trade, as we usually only keep a car about 2 years. We have had the SRX about 2 and a half now, and she said she still loves the car and doesn't see anything out there, that she would want to replace her SRXwith, so I guess we will have it for the foreseeable future. Maybe another SRX in 13, who knows.

    Yes, luxury cars depreciate. There's a big surprise!

    No, the SRX is pretty much mid-pack as far as the hit it takes.

    Maybe, look at a bucks-up friend of mine who doesn't have to ask how much it costs. He bought a loaded BMW 750IL, paid $130,000, drove it 35,000 miles in a year. When he traded it in, the blue book was $70,000. That's $60,000 depreciation in one year, plus he paid $10,400 in state sales tax, which is also gone forever. Even a rich guy winced a bit when he realized depreciation, sales tax, license, insurance and fuel cost him nearly $100,000 to drive last year. "I could have hired a car service every day for less."

    As lifers say, "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime." Same goes for depreciation.

    Re: Value of the SRX

    On another note, look at the example the CTS has. The first gen took a major depreciation hit. The second gen came out and held value fairly well (thanks to much more effort into a luxury car from Cadillac). I expect the same or similar trend with the SRX.

    Re: Value of the SRX

    I don't think so Captain because the 2013 will be a different vehicle and ours will be old school. Between the new chassis and CUE our's will be viewed as an "Older" model. Personally I liked the 2010 model but when I went to buy mine they had changed to the present style which I also like. I think that if a car company has a hit on it's hands it should refine that model and make it even more desirable and dependable instead of a offering different look every two years like they did in the 60's.

    From everything I 've read said the only change is in the interior and the grill same chassis platform for 2013 & 2014. They are changing platforms in MY 2015. Resale should be good till 2015 hit the steeet.

    I am mistaken then. I thought I had read that the body change was to be in 2013. You are right that we have a few more same design years left and maybe the vig will be less!
