Default Temptation!!

I am getting my Nox's oil change done at my Chevy dealership and realized they started selling Cadillac!! They have a brand new Cadillac SRX 3.6 Luxury edition on the sales floor and I am trying to resist the temptation to NOT trade my Nox in for it!! It's hard but we are adopting a baby in Feb 2013 so I really can't afford to trade in right now.

Still reminds me of a Saturn Vue, and I'm sure it's overpriced.

The SRX is sexy but there are not that many additional features from the NOX LTZ that split them apart more noticeable the full size sunroof and HID's.
the 13 Nox has the 3.6 so no diff in power anymore either.

I do love that front end tho

a friend of the family own a SRX, we do some measurement. Exact same as the OBS NOX, some cosmetic difference but I don't think it worth the price difference.

Cadillac is sure great, but right now there is not a lot of difference between caddy and chevy, compared to the past where chevy was the cheap line..

I'd rather have 2 well kept used Noxes for the price of one of those!

I was not impressed with the 3.0L SRX, it had better gearing, but it was a slug vs the 3.0L Nox. I drove both, but i will state they do have a HUGE difference between them, besides the obvious body panels. I always wanted the Turbo SRX, but it was well out of what I would be willing to pay for a car.

I will go with this type of MPG @ 75mph

Top is AVG MPG since start-up (37miles ago as I fueled up)
Bottom is Instant MPG

Edit: I have not made the 600 club yet, its just a matter of finding the perfect climate (its HOT still here) and a good drive to make it. So far the highest I've gotten was 571 miles on a tank...tank holds 14.5gallons. So I will need around a tank average for 44-45...but I hate going slower than speed limit, usally its 5+ over. I can still hold over 40mpg @ 80mph, but it does alot of dips into the 38-39 range as well
