You'll Like The 2009 Cadillac SRX If...

If you like the feel of a sports wagon but would prefer to sit up a bit higher, the 2009 Cadillac SRX will fit you like a glove. In addition to its agile handling and powerful optional V8 engine, the SRX returns a smooth, controlled ride and can accommodate lots of cargo.

Cadillac six poor gas mileage.

Before the six I drove a Ford Focus, 2014 model. The features I miss the most are Bluetooth capabilities, and the improved gas mileage. I currently spend $40 on gas per week, vs the Focus where I maybe spent $30, and I might not have to fill up until half way through the next week. The six is good for someone who wants a lot of features but if you have a long commute like I do (2+) hours per day, assuming I do not have any errands to do, it drinks gas very quickly.

It is a good car. Just needs minor repairs here and there.

I love the space my car has. I also love how smooth the ride is. I love the music system it has. It is a really good car no complaints.

If you can afford the upkeep, it's a fantastic car.

It's a lux vehicle, so the seats, climate control, and sound system are top notch, but repairs are costly.
