2015 SRX battery failures
We have 2015 SRX that we purchased new in May of 2015. In August of 2016 we had the battery replaced by Cadillac roadside service as it failed to start after a 630 mile trip. There was no indication that the battery was not charging or failing. This past Monday the car again failed to start and roadside service came and jump started it and we drove it home. The next morning it failed to start again and I had to jump start it with our other vehicle. I took it in to the service department on Tuesday and we got the call this morning that it was ready to be picked up. The diagnosis again was a failed battery. So that is the third battery in just over two years in a vehicle with less than 20,000 miles on it.
We have had quite a few new vehicles and most of them have had at least 4 and some last up to 6 years with the original batteries. It's very disturbing that a $40,000 + vehicle can't sustain more than a years worth of service life from a battery. Although the local Cadillac service department ran an overnight draw test on it, they couldn't find anything for the second time and just said that it was a dead cell in the battery as it was the first time......very unusual!
Are there any other folks that have been experiencing this phenomenon with the SRX?
