  1. 2005 SRX - High Mileage gift

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I was gifted a 2005 SRX With the 3.6 engine. It has not been driven in years. It has 252k miles on it. I bought a new battery and with lots of luck I got it to run. Obliviously it needs a full tune up, oil change, and tire realignment. The dashboard light up like a Christmas tree and many...

  6. Interior Trim Kits?

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    I really like my new SRX, and think it looks great. I have the black exterior with the black/gray interior. It looks sharp... One question, I really do not like the wood grain accents on the doors? (why they added this is beyond me). Would like to continue with the brushed chrome, or a...
  7. Remote Starter not a standard feature - Install Run Around

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    When purchasing my SRX last month I was quite surprised that it was not equipped with a remote starter. Disappointed, but the dealership referred me to their "preferred" vendor to have the starter installed. I made the appointment, dropped the car off, went back to pick it up to be told that...
  8. Ultra-View Rattle

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Hey guys- I did a search but came up with nothing relevant. We have an 06 SRX with an Ultra-View. It's really nice, but ours rattles when going down most roads. We took it into the dealer and they said that they lubbed the track and that it should have fixed it. It now rattles more than...
  9. New timing chains at 62k, Should I sell??

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    So I figured I would share my crappy week with everyone. My check engine light came on and my mechanic said it was something that had to go to the dealer. I take it there and both timing chains needed to be replaced due to stretching. This requires taking the motor out of the car...Sooo...One...

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016

  19. Long XM antenna

    Why does the SRX have the long XM antenna with the wire wraped around it vs. the small stubby ones like the other Cadillacs?
  20. What if Coupe was First and Sedan was New?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I dunno. I wanna like the coupe but it does have some bulky hips with too much sheetmetal in the rear, similar to the first gen SRX IMO. I love the center exit exhaust and like the fact that the rear track is slightly wider. In contrast, the sedan is pretty darn sexy and much more practical...
