Editor's Overview

The 2013 Cadillac SRX is a mid-size luxury SUV with striking exterior looks and a refined 5-passenger interior. Its road manners offer a good balance between comfort and sporty. The SRX is larger than rivals such as the Lexus RX and BMW X3, and offers commendable power but marginal fuel economy.

2013 Cadillac srx luxury.

The Cadillac srx is a luxury vehicle. The motor in it is amazing speed is great quality & the features are awesome. As well as the open space in the back seats lay down & you have even more space. The TV screen is not so great it's ran by touch & stopped working about a year after I purchased the car. Tried the factory reset option and it did nothing to correct the issue. Touch screen still is not working.

Some of the best features are the ones you never knew you needed.

The SUV is very spacious and comfortable. The lumbar support and adaptive cruise control are great for long car rides. Heated seats and steering wheel are also great for the winter time. Gas mileage isn't great, but isn't terrible either. Overall a very reliable and trustworthy car. Easy to handle in all weather conditions. Plus Cadillac themselves are great to work with.

- Alexandra K

Riding in style with Cadillac.

I have had my car two years with little to no repairs needed. Performance is great. It is a very comfortable ride. I love the Bluetooth connectivity, cue system and high end features like the hand stitched leather and wood grain. I have driven the newer version of this car and I feel as though Cadillac downgraded the quality of its features.

Safety Recalls (4)

Recall Apr 25, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 25, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V212000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured May 29, 2012, through June 26, 2013, and equipped with 3.6L engines. In the affected vehicles, in certain driving situations, there may be a three to four second lag in acceleration due to the transmission control module (TCM) programming.
Consequence:
A three to four second lag in acceleration may increase the risk of crash.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the transmission control module, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. General Motors' number for this recall is 14132.
Wheels May 16, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
May 16, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V202000
Summary:
General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 Cadillac SRX vehicles, manufactured January 31, 2012, through March 18, 2013, and equipped with 18 inch wheels. On the affected vehicles, the wheel lug nuts may loosen.
Consequence:
If the lug nuts loosen, they may fall off or cause the wheel studs to fracture. Either condition would allow the wheel to separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will remove and reinstall the wheel nuts by performing a tire rotation, free of charge. The recall began on June 3, 2013. Owners may contact GM at 1-800-521-7300. GM's recall campaign number is 13116.
Recall Sep 19, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 19, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V571000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured April 14, 2009, to September 1, 2014, and 2011-2012 Saab 9-4X vehicles manufactured February 1, 2011, to September 13, 2011. On the affected vehicles, the jam nut in the rear suspension toe adjuster link may not be torqued to the proper specification. A loose toe adjuster link can cause the vehicle to sway or wander at highway speeds. A loose toe adjuster link may lead to thread damage and eventual failure. Failure of the toe adjuster link will cause an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.
Consequence:
Failure of the toe adjuster link could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the torque of the left and right rear toe link adjuster lock nuts, and replace the parts if there is evidence of damage or a loose link, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early November 2014 and remedy parts, if needed, are expected to be available around the middle of November 2014. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006 or Saab customer service at 1-800-955-9007. GM's number for this recall is 14457.
Electrical System , Power Train Mar 15, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Mar 15, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V097000
Summary:
General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 Buick LaCrosse vehicles, manufactured between April 25, 2012, through March 6, 2013, and model year 2013 Cadillac SRX vehicles, manufactured between May 29, 2012, through February 18, 2013 for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect." A software problem may cause the transmission to inadvertently shift to Sport mode removing any transmission-related engine braking effect.
Consequence:
If engine braking is unexpectedly removed, it may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the transmission control module free of charge. The recall began on April 3, 2013. Cadillac owners may call 1-866-982-2339. Buick owners may call 1-866-694-6546.
