This is the second Escalade I bought and absolutely loved it. Escalades are absolutely reliable vehicles and I can wholeheartedly recommend them. Unfortunately, my son totaled my 2014 Escalade, but after a 4 month search I luckily found the very same Platinum and bought it last month. I will be an Escalade driver till I die!
It's been a long time since I truly loved a car, but I love this one! My friend calls it the "old man's" humvee. The ride is smooth. Love the back up alert feature & dual temperature controls as my Wife is always cold & I'm always hot. Grandkids love the DVD system so much they want to stay in the car longer. It's just a great ride
The 2002 Escalade comes fully equipped with many features that are still optional on the current Avalanche. It has some great features over and above a simialrly equipped Avalanche. They are rare so the color and trim that you want maybe hard to find.
*Traction and Handling - good for a vehicle of this size
*Interior quality despite being the older design
*Midgate & removable rear glass
There are a few niggling items that could be improved.
*Repeat Window Regulator failure (on mine anyway)
*Loose driver's seat (on mine anyway)
*Moderate drive train noise
*Cigarette lighters sockets that remain on after the ignition is off
*Slight fading of the hard panels of the Bed Cover
*Ultrasonic rear park sensors not good when reversing at an angle
Overall a good buy!
They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
