    Fun, Safe And Secure. All Details Perfectly Appointed. — Spirited cross-over SUV that handles like a sports sedan, fun to drive in traffic or at (or above) speed on freeways. Superior to other competitive SUVs in its class because of the styling, handling and attention to details. Get it because you love to drive, not for the cargo.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Sports car type handling, stable and secure, rides like silk. Comfortable despite my 6'4' frame. Excellent headroom. Great for a couple alone or with small children.

    Cons: Cargo capacity is light.

    I Like It And Would Buy The Srx Again. — I don't like the small spare tire, but other than that I like the car. For having a four cyl. engine it is fairly snappy, I was concerned about the way the car handled until Cadillac put our a recall and tightened the suspension, it handles great now. I found the car used in Seattle on CarGurus.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I like the looks of the SRX and its handling after the preformed the recall on the suspension  I get good gas millage for around town (19.5).

    Cons: No Cadillac dealer in Fairbanks

    Clean And Smooth — Very nice car. Smooth quiet ride. The car does have blind spots but overall is safe and fun to drive. The Power and Safety compensate for the blind spots. Mileage is good on the highway. Car is still under warrenty so no bills yet. Oil changed regularly. Very stylish.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good Power, quiet ride. great handling

    Cons: None yet

    Great — Do not get me wrong this is a wonderful vehicle. I love the look and speed. It is just not enough room for me, I am use to more open space. Would like to travel more, but it is to confined for me and my family.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Wonderful car

    Cons: Too small

    Amazing In Almost Every Way! — If Cadillac continues to put these stiff seats with little to no padding in them, my whole family will not be buying again. We all have Caddy's but do not like these new seats one bit. Cadillac seats should be thick, plush thick & cushiony. The epitomy of comfort and this 2012 that I have does not make that mark with the stiff seats. Everything else on the car is perfect!!! (Well, gas mileage could be a bit better) but the seats are my only gripe.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Hottest looking thing around! Handles like a dream and all the gadgets in it are so much fun. It's just all around cool.

    Cons: Those seats! I don't know why Cadillac decided to make the seats so HARD and STIFF but they suck! The heat, so on works super and they looks beautiful but these seats are just not the cushy plush seats you expect from a Cadillac.

    Great Ride — Purchased this Grey Flannel 2012 Cadillac SRX Performance AWD in October 2012. Braking, acceleration and handling are excellent. Interior room is good and there is adequate leg room in the front. Wish the SRX had a movable rear seat like the Chevy Equinox.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Style, Handling, Cargo room, Heated seats, Heated Steering Wheel, nice sound system.

    Cons: Fuel Economy, some creaks in sunroof and hatch.

    For The Money - Its Hard To Beat The Value — The 2012 Cadillac SRX is a very comfortable and smooth riding car and it sits high enough to give you a good view of the road and surrounding traffic. The Premium version comes with nearly every option Cadillac has to offer. The performance is good with quick acceleration through the gears. The 4 year maintenance plan is and should be standard with a car of this type. Yet surprisingly, other cars such as the Mercedes SUV's do not offer this. The only two downsides are mileage and drive train. For an SUV of this size and power it is probably Okay - but we would like to see better. The only other item is front wheel drive. We had the original rear wheel drive SRX and thought that it handled and performed much better than the newer model SRX. If you want a REALLY good deal - buy a 1 yr old SRX with a CPO warranty. You may save as much as 25% off MSRP and end up with 6yrs of warranty instead of the usual 4 yr.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good styling and handling. Plenty of power. Very comfortable seating and quite interior

    Cons: Gas mileage is 'okay' - but not 'great'. Would prefer it to be rear wheel drive.
