"I have only required scheduled maintenance such as oil, tires, and preventative maintenance schedule. I traded a DTS in on this and while it does not ride as well as the DTS, it is very comfortable and I enjoy the extra elevation in traffic. It has a surprising small turning radius and is extremely easy to park in tight spaces as the car's exterior is smaller than it seems. Backup camera is a big help in parking garages. I am easy on brakes and still have factory brakes on car at 80,000 miles. At last service, advisor told me I had 45% remaining. The 20" tires are pricey but car is very stable in rain and high wind. I have never felt uncomfortable in it, even when driving it in snow in Ohio. Back seats are okay for kids but don't plan on hauling adults for long distance. The vehicle has the most legroom up front in any vehicle I've been in, including Escalade. I wish it had the dual sun visor like the DTS for winding roads where the sun keeps shift from front to side. That's really my only complaint."
"I purchased a 2012 srx performance pkg., in red, beautiful car, all the goodies, real nice interior, I waited for the larger motor for 12, I did plan on an 11, the power is the only thing that is still left to be desired, BUY I traded in and 07 Escalade EXT, which was fantastic power wise and
I may be a little parchial to its power, I have to get use to a 6 cyc., Over all its a great car, easy to drive, handles great, I'll know better first snow storm as the
EXT was fantasic, to bad I had such issues with the rims
on the ext.,"
