2005 Cadillac SRX

The Cadillac SRX went through a few cosmetic changes for 2005, including new trim and a modified instrument panel.  Otherwise, this steady and reliable midsize SUV still offers 2 main trims: the V6 and V8, both in RWD and AWD versions.  The SRX V6 uses a 3.6 L, 255 hp powertrain while the V8 uses a 4.6 L, 320 hp engine.  Both have 5 speed automatic transmission.

Between the 2 trims, expect to get around 15 mpg in the city and 21 on the highway.  Both trims have 4 doors, seat 7, and offer standard air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power/leather seats, cd player, ABS brakes, traction control, stability control, and sunroof (on the V8).  Sunroof (on the V6) and navigation system come as options.  If you need room for your crew carry-on items, the 2005 Cadillac SRX has 124 cubic feet of passenger space and 32.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the second row up.  Finally, the SUV tows anywhere from 1000 to 3500 lbs., with an option to upgrade to 4250.

Overall, drivers like the SRX's powerful engines, roomy interior, and optional third row seat.  However, reviewers would appreciate better gas mileage and better interior materials.  In any case, the 2005 SRX presents a solid option for those in the market for an elegant midsize SUV that bears the prestigious Cadillac name.

Cigarette Lighter/ashtray

I just got this 05 SRX recently. The ashtray seems to be in a "locked" down position. In other words, I can't move it, at least not without the fear of breaking it. Thoughts on how to dislodge it?
