  1. thinking about an '08 or '09 SRX

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Besides the sunroof issue I'm currently dealing with, I love my '06 V8 AWD -- loaded with every option. If you can fine the MRC, go for it. No problems with that system at 75k.
  2. Ultraview sunroof binding

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I would stop opening and closing it as you may further strip the cable (as I did). It probably has to do with the cables/motor as I had the same experience.
  3. Ultraview sunroof binding

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Now the motor assembly needs to be replaced because one of the gear's teeth is missing. This is now close to $1K. Nothing from Cadillac in terms of assistance. I would expect since the roof has been problematic since I've owned the car, Cadillac would help with parts.
  4. vibration when closing roof glass

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Mine is at the dealer now -- cable and motor needed to be replaced -- costing me amost $1K
  5. Ultraview sunroof binding

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    My car needs to have one of the cables replaced - $680 (parts $400, labor $280). Does that seem reasonable? Honestly, I feel that Cadillac should cover some of the costs. This is the fourth or fifth repair to the sunroof.
  6. Ultraview Roof Not Opening

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Mine is at the dealer now getting the room removed and tracks cleaned. It's a great feature, but it is problematic and requires some maintenance . . . hopefully you are still under warranty. Mine has 75k, had it in four or maybe five times under warranty for the roof, this is the first visit...

    If I provide the VIN can Cadillac confirm what the correct lubricant is to use on my sunroof?
  8. Ultraview sunroof binding

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    GM super lube was listed on the TSB that i was reviewing. Can someone point me to the updated TSB with the revised part number or suggested lube to use??
  9. Ultraview sunroof binding

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I did relube the track using the super lube - it actually seemed to make it worse. Going to try and clean the track tonight (as you said, the front ones are easy, the rears you can't see what you are doing in there) and go from there. When the car was under warranty I had it in for the roof...
  10. Ultraview sunroof binding

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    How does one clean the tracks and check the tork bolts? I relubed with the GM super lube, and they has not done the trick . . . (06 N*/75k)
  11. 06 N* White Smoke

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    So my mechanic just replaced the valve cover gasket on my 2006 SRX N* with 71K and on my way home I saw smoke coming out of the back. It looks more white than black. Took it back, they seem perplexed and told me to bring it back in on Monday if it continues. I'm not mechanically-savvy. It was...
  12. Would you still buy SRX all over again??

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    ABSOLUTELY -- I'm disappointed with the direction they went in with the new model. I have an '06 with the N*, and every option, including the MRC. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the MRC. UltraView has needed some work, but it was worth the hassle. There are some rattles here and there when driving over...
  13. Drove a loaner '10 SRX - My observations

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I have a 2006 N* AWD loaded, 52k miles. My favorite features are the N*, MRC and UltraView. I don't know what I'm going to do when I decided to trade her in. The new SRX has that FWD overhang I can't get over (and FWD for that matter) and those little engines. I do like the interior though...
  14. 50k service

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Took my 06 V8 AWD in to get some warranty-related items done, and the service advisor is recommending the following, of which I think I need none . . . - Power steering system flush - Radiator flush - Brake line flush - AWD service - Also recommending tire rotation which I know the OM...
  15. Front End "Groan"

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    The dealer ordered new bushings for mine . . . should have it back tomorrow (this is my second visit to the dealer, the first time they couldn't replicate the problem -- took it back at 47k before warranty is up) They also are replacing some parts on the UltraView -- it has never really...
