    Just traded XT5 for a XT4

    I worked a trade of my 2018 XT5 for new XT4. The wife and I(empty nesters) are more comfortable with the size. I like the addition of buttons and dials compared to the XT5 which didn't even have a volume/on-off knob for the radio!

    The ride is smooth and the pick-up is like a sports car compared to the lowgy V6.

    Take a XT4 on a test drive and you will be surprised.

    I'm still amazed at how much more zip this car has than the already quick turbocharged SRX we traded for it.

    We recently traded in a 2015 SRX for an XT4 and are very pleased that we did.

    Re: Just traded XT5 for a XT4

    After much deliberation, we traded in our 2013 SRX Premium AWD for an XT4 Sport AWD over the weekend making use of Costco Canada promo pricing.

    It has done only ~100km in two days of running... so far so good

    I have been reading this forum for since it was created. everyone for the info here which helped make our decision.

    I wasn't a fan of the XT5 transmission (that 8-speed was terrible). Pretty sure it was the same as my 2016 ATS -- which had constant problems (shuttered instead of down-shifting, VERY hard shifts, and was the most herky-jerky riding experience I've had in any other vehicle).

    Congrats on the XT4!

    Definitely not the same transmissions. XT5 is a FWD Aisin 8 speed. ATS is a RWD GM 8 speed.

    That may be the case, sure. But the one I had as a loaner when my ATS was serviced behaved the exact same way.
