Reliability

  • RECALL ALERT: On October 10, 2008, Cadillac issued a recall alert affecting 17,301 MY2004 Cadillac SRXs due to a transmission anomaly in which the gear lever can be moved from the "park" position with the ignition "on" and without the operator depressing the brake pedal or, in some cases, the shifter can be moved from the "park" position with the ignition turned off. The recall begins in December 2008 and Cadillac dealers will replace the pawl stopper and a bushing within the shifter assembly free of charge. For more information, you can contact Cadillac at 1-800-982-2339. [5]
  • RECALL ALERT: On October 07, 2010, Cadillac announced a recall alert affecting 3,996 MY2010 SRXs due due to a possible damage to the power steering line allowing the power steering fluid to possibly leak and make its way onto hot engine parts resulting in a fire. The affected vehicles were built in December 2009, with 3,460 of those sold in the United States, while 341 were exported to China. [6]

Criticisms

"This is a very ugly car. So ugly, in fact, that you'll want to get inside it and shut the door as quickly as possible. But sadly, when you are inside it's even worse. If it were a creature, it wouldn't be a lion or a praying mantis or even a chimp. No, I think it would be a wasp - useless and hateful in equal measure." Jeremy Clarksin, Top Gear
