Test Drive: Look at that Cadillac


I didn’t even realize I was a Caddie Girl until General Motors asked me what kind of car I wanted to test drive for a week. “Pick any car you want!” They told me. I had an Escalade that I loved, but traded down to a smaller 2005 Cadillac SRX about a year ago. Man I love that car. Zippy and with the raddest license plate ever.

Right? (I’m a little bit of an Anaheim Ducks fan) So I thought I’d give the new 2011 Cadillac SRX a spin. I made the right choice. With its V6 turbo pick up, in blue frost metallic and soft leather seats it quickly drove itself right up to the top of my “next car” list. Equipped with a GPS that allowed me to simply key in “Ruby’s” and it pulled up the address and sent me right there. I love that! We drove it up to stay at The Georgian in Santa Monica. My kids loved the DVD system and I loved that the whole trip–OC to LA and back–didn’t even take a whole tank of gas. We even drove around Los Angeles, hitting the Skirball Center, Mel’s Diner and The Grove. Watch the video for the play by play of that trip.


After the week was up all five of the blogger spent one last morning with our cars shooting this video in Newport Beach. We all loved our cars and when the cameras stopped rolling, we schemed together on ways we could keep them for longer. We had a blast shooting this and check out Marcy’s trip in the opening sequence. Classic.
