I just put a deposit down on a 2012 SRX4 Luxury with 11650 miles on it.

Xenon Blue in color, with Tan leather interior,

I will be going to look at it next Wednesday when I am in Cincinnati.
Anything that I should keep my eye out for?

Looks flawless in the pictures and the price is right.

Thanks for the reply, with 11650 miles I doubt any drive train issues will show yet.
Don't assume anything. The previous owner could have dumped it for this or any number of reasons. Get the dealer to print out the GM service and repair history for you. Don't just rely on a Carfox or whatever they are calling it these days. They are almost useless.

I have most of that already. (Before placing a deposit)

It is an off lease vehicle and the dealer that I am buying it from did all service to the vehicle since they sold it to the customer.

One minor body shop trip, which the dealer did also, they will be providing me the report / estimate for that fix also.

Not an auction vehicle, which I like very much.

Still under B2B, I would not have any worries. See if you can get them to Certify it, Its well worth it!! CPO Certified Pre-Owned. Once you purchase it, you cannot have it done. Great negotiation item.

Great! P.S. you can also still take out the GM Extended warrantee, it has longer terms that the CPO, and also looks like it covers more items. You just have to decide before the B2B runs out. From my research, it can be purchased with a $0-, $100, or $200- Deductible

There is no way that the GMPP extended warranty covers more than the CPO:

"The Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Warranty1 is a true extension of the New Vehicle Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty. It adds an additional 2 years or 20,000 miles to the original factory 4-year/50,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty. That’s 6 years or 70,000 miles of worry-free protection1 on every Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, whichever comes first."

The CPO would cover trim items that the extended warranty would exclude.

Here is what is excluded from Major Guard GM extended warranty:

Excluded parts and services: If the part or service is not on this list, it’s covered under Major Guard

Batteries
Body parts, panels and rails
Brake drums
Brake pads / linings and brake shoes / rotors
Bumpers
Carpet and upholstery
Chassis frame
Convertible and vinyl tops
Correction of air and water leaks
Cross members
Drive belts
Engine coolant
Engine tune-up
Exhaust component and catalytic converter
Filters
Fluids
Glass
Heater and vacuum hoses
Hinges
Lenses
Light bulbs
Lubricants
Maintenance services and parts required or recommended by the vehicle manufacturer
Manual clutch disc
Paint
Radiator hoses
Recharging the air conditioner
Rust damage
Sealed beams
Sheet metal
Shock absorbers
Spark / glow plugs and wires
Squeaks, rattles, wind noise and odors
Suspension alignment
Tires
Trim, moldings and bright metal
Weather-strips
Wheel balancing
Windshield wiper blades

I bolded some items that ARE covered by the CPO bumper to bumper warranty.

Purchased a 2012 SRX4 Luxury today with 23400 miles. Very clean off lease vehicle.

Was at dealers doors when they opened at 9 and left by 11 with her in tow.
Heard a salesman say he had an appointment to show the vehicle at 11. Early bird gets the worm:blush:
