    Sticker 04 SRX V-8 $56,855. Demo w/ 6400 miles. My cost if I choose is $39203 incl $1500 loyalty. So it sounds comparable.

    My understanding is that $10k was given to dealers for each V8 SRX after Jan 3rd. Anybody know what was provided for remaining V6 SRXs. I am guessing somewhere around $5-6k but I haven't gotten a solid answer yet.

    Thanks,

    Tom
  • Tom, where did you hear about htis $10K "kicker" incentive on the 04' V-8 SRX's? NOT that I doubt it, becasue there are many of the above mentioned on dealers lots still.

    I am buying an SRX, will be at the dealer showroom Saturday to finalize. I am so confused which one should I take, a 2005 V6 RWD or 2004 V8 AWD. I would have loved ot take a RWD V8, but this option is not availabel at all.

     

    Both cars are brand new and similarly equiped (includeng the ultra view roof, StabilitTrack and Magna ride), the 2004 has the rear DVD player In addition. $42,600 for the V8 and 44,200 for the 05 V6. But the 04 model is offered with 3% financing compared to 7% for the '05. ('05 V8 not available here yet and not for some months)

     

    I have test driven both, and the V6 felt softer and more responsive, Is this due to the RWD being more nimble than the AWD? Another surprise was the instant fuel consumption of the V6 was reading 11 L/100 km at 60 Mi cruise, while the V8 read 9 L/100 km at the same cruise speed???

     

    Finally does any one had, or expects a problem with the AWD system. I am really concedrned that AWD drive won't age niceliy say at 100,000 mi, while the RWD will age much better.

     

    Any one knows of horror storied concerning the AWD system.

     

    I have 2003 CTS and I love it.

     

    Thanks

    A couple dealers told me.

    Sorry for the delay,

  • I just got a RWD V8 2004, with sunroof and bose premium sound. Everything else I think was standard. Oh yes, I get the electric folding third row seat (didn't really want that but maybe the dog will be happy in it). Paid $36k plus Tax and License. No additional dealer prep, advertising, floor plan, or delivery, etc.

     

    I think this was a good price but I maybe could have gotten another thousand off. Anyone do better/worse/same?

     

    My build date was 1/04 so I had them put a new battery in, replace the engine oil, and do the three recalls (seats, suspension, and stearing).
  • My SRX is great, no manufacturing flaws that I can find. Everything works great. However, I do have a slight steering vibration characteristic of tires out of balance. Could this be from the car being parked for a year in the dealers lot? It was a 2004 with a 1/04 build date and only 2 miles on it. So maybe the tires are flat-spotted.

     

    Can anyone advise me?
  • Sure there's a good chance the tires are flat-spotted. You'd be too if you sat for that extended period unmoved. Dealers are ALWAYS moving their inventory around for selling purposes however, so maybe your vibration is NOT tire related. What was the sticker on your vehicle? THANKS.

    V8, RWD, black/black with 2K miles for 34K

     

    I consider carmax the bench mark for used car pricing and i think that is a great deal. too bad i am not planning on buying one for a nother six months.
  • Got the 2004 V8, AWD, Rear seat DVD system, 3rd row seat, ultra sun roof. Price is $42K (includes about $3000 for customs tax, and shipping), actual price $39,000. The car is new with 6 mi on the odo.

     

    The dealer was excellent. Sent me alone with my wife for the prepurchase test drive, I returned it after an hour, and no complains.

     

    Love, it, really nice. built 3/04. Were there any recalls???

  • GM Announces New Incentive Program Intended to Help Clear Vehicles Off Dealers' Lots
    DETROIT March 9, 2005; Dee-Ann Durbin writing for the AP reported that General Motors Corp. announced a new round of consumer incentives Thursday intended to help clear slow-selling vehicles off dealers' lots this month.

    GM will give cash bonuses of between $500 and $1,500 for vehicles that have been in dealer inventories for at least 125 days, GM spokeswoman Deborah Silverman said. Most of those vehicles will be eligible for $1,000 bonuses, but Cadillacs will be eligible for $1,500. Cadillac sales were strong at the end of 2004 but fell 3.3 percent last month, according to Autodata Corp.

    The "March Madness" promotion is similar to a red tag sale GM held in December. GM's sales fell 7 percent overall that month, but the bonuses helped sales of individual brands like Chevrolet and Cadillac. Cadillac sales rose 19 percent in December, helping the luxury brand achieve its best sales year since 1990.
  • SRX poor resale values here. THis is such a good car, why would they have high inventories. Whats going on here?

    P.S. if i was in the market, i would look at a 2004 AWD v8 SRX with all the options except meybe 3rd row seat for 40K. Is that possible?

    Just purchased an 04 SRX with Ultraview, 3rd row, Bose, Lumbar, AWD, 11K miles for $32,900. It also has DVD navigation. Reasonable? Buyer's remorse? Build 04/04.
  • 04' NEW SRX V-8 AWD. Sticker $52,490. My cost, after the March Madness "kicker," $34,400. Blue/natural color. These vehicles are NOT selling, hence, GREAT deals like the above mentioned are available.
  • stlgasmanstlgasman Posts: 139
    I think the V8's have 10k plus the March Madness and the V6's have 5K. I really didn't want the 8.

    We're in South Florida looking for a great deal on a 2004. Where are you guys finding these deals. We may ship one in
  • stlgasmanstlgasman Posts: 139
    You can check ebay if you are willing to do preowned. You can go to Cadillac.com and search inventory by zip code. We just purchased a V6 and I am pleased so far. The new V8 have a bigger incentive.

    GM has a current promotion to existing GM owners to pay 1st 3 monthly payments (up to $3,000) when purchase is financed through GMAC. Per terms and conditions SRX is an eligible model.

    GMAC is also offering 0% financing for 2005 SRX on a 36 month loan in the Northeast.

    Before engaging dealers I was curious if anyone knew whether these offers are deemed mutually exclusive. Nothing in terms and conditions to indicate that they are exclusive of each other, but there is the ubiquitous "See your GM dealer for details" phrase contained in the terms and conditions.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    '05 SRX (assume V6).. service loaners..

    $299/mo. for only 24 months.. $2595 due at signing..

    About $400/mo. total for only a 24 month lease.. Not too bad for a car that MSRPs for well over $30K, even if it is used.

    I am trying to get an idea as to a fair price for a 2005 SRX V6 AWD with the 7 passenger value package (I need the 3rd row) - I live in Connecticut.

    Edmunds MSRP is $49,550
    Edmunds Invoice is $45,098
    Edmunds TMV is $43,639

    There is a $1,000 rebate and $1,000 marketing support on the car right now.

    One dealer offered the car to me at $42,000 (plus tax and tags). This seems nowhere near the end of 2004/beginning of 2005 prices discussed above. Have I not shopped it enough yet?
  • ops1ops1 Posts: 25
    Am I the only person considering buying this car? Has anyone gotten recent pricing information for a new 2005?
  • thinking2thinking2 Posts: 25
    I'm with you. With the new GMS pricing, right now it looks like the deals in May ($2000 in rebates and low financing) were better. I'm waiting to see how the rest of this month goes and also what happens next month. I'm hoping that they will throw some rebates out on top of the GMS pricing. I saw in a newspaper article that at the end of May SRX inventories were around 120+ days, which is huge. So sooner or later they will have to lower prices to clear inventories for the 2006 models.
  • ops1ops1 Posts: 25
    I thought $42K for a V6 AWD with the 7 pass value pkg was too rich. The GMS pricing does not change the deal all that much (I would be buying the car as opposed to lease or smartbuy). I will probably wait another couple of months to see what happens to prices. I think at the end of the day the SRX won't be for me primarily due to pricing - what I really want is a stripped AWD V6 with seating for 7, but due to the packaging I need to get the luxury package (nice goodies, but poor value for the money) and the 7 pass package (again, nice stuff, but insanely high option pricing).
