Thumbs up Got a new "winter beater"

So with the whole wedding thing happening, the Malibu we bought last year went from being mostly my winter car to being mostly my wife's car.

Since the rule is minimum of n+1 on cars to people ratio, I figured we were one short!

Picked this up last night:

2007 Cadillac SRX
AWD, Northstar V8 320hp
20" wheels, Ultraview moon roof, remote start, heated seats, seat/mirror memory, all the bells and whistles!

RWD car - check!
FWD car - check!
AWD car - check!
Got all the bases covered now.

2001 Camaro Z28 H/C/I LH6 A4 3.42

great choice!

my wife drives a white 2006 SRX V8 AWD, they redesigned the interior in 2007 and added the 100,000 mile warranty, so you got a great car!

plus, i think yours has the premium package with the 20s, different style bumpers and grill

my only complaint about hers is the seats are very firm and my big butt doesn't fit very well in it, she fits in it perfect since shes tiny!
