My wife drives a 99 STS. Great gas mileage, 20+. Nowthat gas is $2.63 a gallon she is looking at a 2006 SRX that get only 15 MPG in the city. Does anyone have one and how do they conpare to the STS? I think a Lexus RX 350 might bea better deal.....Regards JLM

My dad's '05 3.6 L AWD averages about 17-18 mpg.

20 mpg max highway. He likes the vehicle overall. My

biggest complaints are the lousy visibility due to the small

rear windows, then the relatively lousy gas mileage, but

what do you expect from an AWD?

My mother is due to buy a new car in a year or two, and she wants a station wagon - has been happy with her Sable wagon, but, its not made anymore I guess.

So, other than the Dodge Magnum, the Cadillac SRX seems to be the only (traditional) American-made wagon around. But, the Consumer Report article says its not real reliable. Does anyone have reliability opinions on the car?

THANKS

The Ford Freestyle is the modern day equivalent to the Sable wagon. For 2008 they renamed it Taurus X

There's also the Chevy Malibu Maxx which is a station wagon that would be much better on gas than an SRX

THANKS Dan - but, she doesn't want a SUV and doesn't want a hatchback - a true station wagon is what she's after. Any words on the SRX here?????

I would take anything that CON-sumers Reports prints with a grain of salt....

So far the SRX has been reliable, it too replaced a Sable

wagon. From what I've researched the SRX, in general,

has proven to be a reliable model. There were some issues

about a squealing moonroof.
