Mommymobile — The car handles beautifully, but the maintenance issues detract from it quite a bit. We had to wait 5 weeks for the dealer to get parts from France (why France?), we've had the catalytic converters go out 3 times, the roof to rust out, and each time the cost to repair was high. I love the car, but it's falling apart.

Rear Wheel Drive Made This Suv A Standout — This is the first Cadillac I ever owned, bought it used from a local Cadillac dealer and loved it. I never had the oil problem I read about, in fact I changed my oil every 5,000 miles and had no problem at all with it. Good over the road, drove it on a daily basis. We originally bought this because it was big - but not large, and had rear wheel drive. We later moved to the SRX in 2012 and miss the rear wheel drive of this vehicle. We did a lot of hauling big boxes and about the only reason we really sold it was because we needed better fuel economy.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Ah, It's Ok But I Got It Cheap — It handles nicely. The gas mileage isn't as bad as I fought it was going to be. I think it handsomely appointed and very attractive on the inside. The braking is perfect for regular road conditions. It's not all that fun to drive, but then again, it's probably not supposed to be that way. Maintenance is a little high on everything I've had done to it. The parts seem easy enough to get, however.

Overall Nice Car To Drive On The Daily. — This car was very enjoyable, it is very dependable and has a very good handle. I would refer this vehicle to a friend because of its hreat looks, smooth ride and the overhead view is to die for. If your looking for a nice ride look no further cause the cadillac sxr is the right choose.

Very Happy With This Car, Would Reccomend It To Others. — I bought this car in place of a Jeep Grand Cherokee and have NO regrets! I would recomended this vehicle to anyone. The luxury exceeds what a Jeep can provide and the AWD works great here in the New England area. I have not had any issues with its maintenance or performance. ++++++++++ Great Car!!

It's A Good Car! — A smooth, luxurious ride with all the amenities. Extra seat in the back to allow for two more passengers can be folded away as trunk space. Love that is comes with OnStar.
