Ford And Heinz, 2014 Cadillac SRX, 2015 Mustang Configurator: What’s

From The Car Connection:

2014 Cadillac SRX Review

The 2014 Cadillac SRX has a chiseled, gleaming exterior that fits right in with that of the Escalade SUV, and its daring interior style follows closely in the footsteps of the GM luxury brand’s contemporary sedans. Yet as the more carlike crossover utility vehicle in the luxury brand’s lineup, it’s something quite different.

Cadillac: What’s new for 2017

In the midst of a major resurgence, Cadillac’s 2017 lineup has added a new crossover SUV and sent one to the history bin, but there are more than a few notable changes for the crested wreath brand as it enters its 115th year.

Last year, the brand introduced its new range-topping Cadillac CT6 sedan. This year, it’s the SRX that waves goodbye–and in its place, there’s a new 2017 Cadillac XT5 utility vehicle.

Those aren’t the only changes, by any means.

From the large-and-in-charge Escalade to the world-beating CTS-V sports sedan, here’s what’s changed in Cadillac’s lineup for 2017:

Cadillac, Buick Top 2013 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards

Cadillac and Buick customers feel satisfied—extremely so, according to the latest gauge of owner satisfaction.

The 17th annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA), from the market-research firm AutoPacific, looks at satisfaction with 51 different vehicle attributes—including things like fuel economy, performance, and interior comfort. And these two General Motors [NYSE: GM] brands finished best; it found that Cadillac earned the top spot for overall satisfaction in a premium brand, while Buick took the top spot among popular brands.

The firm breaks up its awards into passenger car and light truck categories. The Cadillac SRX luxury crossover topped the light-truck segment, while the Lexus LS 460 was the passenger car with the highest owner-satisfaction score.

No one automaker dominated the results in 2013, the company points out. Although in overall standing Infiniti and Land Rover stood out as the most-improved brands this year, while Scion and Ford

GM Tells Used Car Dealers To Stop Selling 2003-13 Cadillac CTS, 2004-06 Cadillac SRX

On June 30, General Motors added 8.4 million vehicles to its still-growing list of recalls. Among the affected models were more than 616,000 units of the 2003-14 Cadillac CTS and 2004-06 Cadillac SRX, which suffer from “unintended ignition key rotation”. (That’s the same sort of issue affecting millions of other GM models included in the “Switchgate” recall.) 

GM has a number of fixes lined up for other recalled vehicles, including replacement of the entire ignition switch and an insert that minimizes the swing and pull of key rings on car keys while vehicles are in motion. Earlier Cadillac models can be fixed with such an insert, but keys for 2008 – 2013 models already have a small hole, yet GM has found that they remain susceptible to unintended rotation. GM spokesperson Alan Adler says that the automaker is looking for one solution that will repair all the Cadillacs on its recall list.
