It's official, I just put a deposit on a 2013 Luxury Black Raven SRX, with Nav (Yes, Nav is one of those things I can not be without in a vehicle. I am simply not capable of reading maps while driving, and I personally feel it's a disgrace to a Cadillac to have a wired after market GPS system hanging in the window . . again, just a personal feeling.)
There were certain things I HAD TO HAVE (Black and Nav). Others were not on my mind. Like "Drivers Awareness". Although it is a really nice feature (especially with the horrible blind spots on the SRX), it was not a negotiated item for me. I have closed a deal and I actually can't recall if I have this Driver Awareness package or not.
If anyone is a GM employee and can run the VIN, and let me know 2 things:
1. What the hell color shades are the inside of my SRX? Lol . . sounds strange but I never asked. Was not all that important to me.
2. Do I have Driver Awareness?
To clarify how I could buy a car and not know these things: I have always purchased my cars from several hours away. I do all of my negotiating on line and via phone. I did try to work with my local cadillac dealer a few years back . . but they simply would not listen to me. I said I wanted an apple a thousand times, and they constantly offered me an orange. I wont go back to buy a car . . but their service department is great.
That being said, I have always gotten great deals and never had any issues (knock on wood) buying vehicles this way.
This time around, I am stepping down from my 2010 AWD Premium, Plat Ice (loaded to the hill with many options I never once enjoyed . . like 2 dvd screens, towing, etc. . etc . . etc . . ). I toned it down to the Lux Black Raven - opting for only the true features that I really use.
None the less, I am excited. And very much looking forward to CUE . . for good or bad.
And yes. I could call the dealer and ask for a listing of all the options. But tomorrow is Saturday and my sales guy is not in. Sunday they are closed . . and let's face it: I am anxious. Its a 2013 SRX, after all!!
I can send the VIN in PM . . .
