People know Cadillac for producing some of the best luxury SUVs on the market, which means it has several used models for buyers. Because of this, many people still consider a used Cadillac SRX when on the market for a vehicle. After all, it was discontinued in 2016, which means it still has several modern models for used SUV buyers. In particular, the 2012 and 2014 Cadillac SRX are solid . 

The 2014 Cadillac SRX is one of the best used luxury SUVs

People looking for a used Cadillac SRX have to do their research. Unfortunately, not all models will make for the best used luxury SUVs due to quality issues. However, the 2014 Cadillac SRX happens to be one of the best. J.D. Power gave it an 80 out of 100 for quality & reliability, and it happens to have the same overall score, which puts it in the marketing research firm’s ‘great’ category.

The 2014 SRX is also one of the best used luxury SUVs because of its performance. It uses a 3.6-liter V6 engine with a maximum output of 308 horsepower and a torque of 265 lb-ft. This model has front and all-wheel drive configurations and uses a six-speed automatic transmission. Regarding speed, it takes about seven seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour. 

People looking for a used SRX should also consider the 2012 model. In fact, most say that the 2012 Cadillac SRX is the most reliable model of what many call one of the best used luxury SUVs. However, it is a couple of years older, which means it will have more miles on the odometer. 

Years to skip

As mentioned, people looking for a used Cadillac SRX should skip some models. However, the good thing is that even some of the worst models don’t have significant issues but rather annoyances. In particular, many owners say to avoid the 2010 model. 

There are a few issues that seem to be consistent with the lineup overall. For starters, there are several reports of water getting into the headlights. This can cause foggy lights but, at worst, electrical issues. Of course, this can also lead to safety issues. Some models of the SRX also suffer from various headlight issues, such as poor low-beam illumination. 

Some used Cadillac SRX models also have issues with the navigation system as well as with the user experience system. As mentioned, these are annoyances and not significant issues. Still, used buyers should properly research any specific vehicle they’re interested in buying.
