The 2012 Cadillac SRX is one of Cadillac’s top sellers and one of the more popular luxury crossover SUVs on the market. It has a fuel saving eco feature along with being practical and comfortable. Once the eco mode is engaged, the transmission switches to upshift early and resists downshifts, which provides a 1 mpg boost.

Key Features

The Cadillac SRX will get up to 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Its towing capacity is 2,500 pounds and comes with 208 hp. Under the hood is a 2.6 liter V6 engine with a six speed transmission. The SRX can go from zero to 60 in under seven seconds.

Changes for 2012

The 2.6 liter V6 is new to the Cadillac SRX and an improvement over the previous two engine choices. The new eco feature is added to increase the fuel economy. Other additions to the vehicle include Bluetooth hands-free phone technology, heated steering wheel, Xenon Blue exterior color, and ebony trim interior.

What We Like

The Cadillac SRX brings a sporty feel while still being energy efficient. Driving on highways and in the city is comfortable, especially with the high quality suspension. The navigation is user friendly and the all-wheel drive system offers the best performance on both wet and dry pavement.

What Concerns Us

The thick roof pillars make visibility difficult when looking from the inside out. In addition, headroom and legroom are left wanting for regular sized adults sitting in the back seats.

Models

There are no other models in this series.

Recalls

General Motors recalled the 2012 Cadillac SRX vehicles because a jam nut in the back suspension toe adjuster link may not be set to the proper requirement. This can make the car wander or sway while driving at highway speeds, which can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle. A second recall was put out in July of 2014 for the bolt that secures the passenger’s and driver’s power front seat. The height adjuster may fall out which would cause the seat to drop to the lowest position. This can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle along with increase the risk of a crash.

Complaints

Common complaints from consumers include an inaccurate navigation systems, the headrest is too far forward, radio controls not working when the car is in reverse, and uncomfortable seating.

Nicholas texted me 30 minutes prior to arrival. Showed up on time as scheduled. He confirmed the work that I requested be performed. He completed the work, performed the road tested, and delivered my keys along with recommendations of other work that might be in my best interest. Was very pleasant, professional, and cleaned up after he was done. I was so impressed with the service he performed and the speed at which the services were completed. I have already scheduled a future service with Nicholas and will schedule any and all future repairs with him if he is available.
