2010-2014 SRX Vehicle Covers
I've been using car covers since the early 80's on all my cars. I moved to South Florida and found the Sun is murder on vehicles, it destroys the headlights, dash and headliners and the rubber trim. Now I work in a job where my vehicle is parked out in this sun for 12 hours or more. Also using the NOAH Fabric which is my material preference, you can have a passing shower or downpour come by during the day and if you you have 1 to 2 hours before you need to remove the cover it will be dry and NO RAIN Spots! Now I've never used a cover on anything but a car, so I was hesitant wondering how hard it would be in put the cover on and take it off the big SRX. The SRX is fairly low in height, but much taller than my CTS.
Well I went ahead and took the chance and ordered one. I've used only two cover providers over the years "California Car Cover" & Big Sky in Montana. Now keep in mind the cover will last about 3 years if you use it every day like I do, the sun destroys 'em. If it fails in 3 years or less either company will warranty replace it. I've done it twice. Now I'm 5' 10" and I found I can install the cover in under 50 seconds and in less than 40 seconds I can take it off rolled up and put away.
Prices: I found Big Sky did better on the SRX costing $260 to my door, California wanted $320 and the Big Sky version came with a nice antenae pocket (see photo) that CCC doesn't use.
Anyway if you want a nice cover that will keep your Cadillac looking like new get one of these.

Just an added note how well these covers work, when I pulled my new SRX into the lot a fellow employee asked if it was a "new one". I responded quickly Yes. He said I had to ask as your vehicles always look new even when they are many years old. The finish (paint & trim) on my 100,213 mile 2006 CTS was as perfect as this 2013, I'm serious!
