Much as I LOVE the functionality and family-friendliness of a mini-van, I can’t say I will ever drive or own one. In the past, we’ve had a Honda CRV, A BMW X3, a Volkswagen Eurovan and these days I drive a used Audi All-road. Yup, not a single American car…hmmm… So when the chance to test-drive the new Cadillac SRX came up, I seized the opportunity.
Compared to my little All-road, I felt the SRX was massive but of course, it wasn’t – in fact, it was just RIGHT. With features like a glide-up touch screen navigation system, plus Bluetooth, driving the Cadillac SRX was like a high-tech dream. Very luxurious.
On the first day, I drove the SRX to Irvine Spectrum to catch Style Week. I hung out with my stylish blogging friends including Suz, Kathleen, Allison, Jenelyn and Sonia. We were all feeling well, stylish. So driving in a Cadillac was definitely perfect.
On the second day, I took the kids to their Saturday morning music lessons and ran errands. So far so good, man, this was the ultimate mommy car. (Mom, I love that parking thing) But later that day, I had to attend an event at the Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach. So there I was, sans kids, driving down the PCH with the sun setting and Two Door Cinema club blasting, it felt as if I were in a dream (or maybe a music video) – – because that’s what driving the SRX was like – it cruised like a dream.
On Sunday, we decided to make a family day out of it and my husband took over the wheel as we took the SRX to Encinitas, San Diego county. Getting the DVD playing in the back was a little confusing, till the kids (who else) figured it out and riding the SRX became part of the day’s adventure.
I had the SR-X for a couple of days more but I don’t want to bore you with my usual routine of getting the kids to and from school and going to work and finding time for errands in between. I will say however that the SRX was a great work horse and comfortable ride.
Who knows, maybe my next car will indeed be a Cadillac?
