Reviews for Cadillac Escalade
Cadillac Escalade EXT
The Escalade EXT I purchased is one fine vehicle. The car had been service only by a Cadillac dealer and after checking the background, I found there had been few (cosmetic) problems with the vehicle. If you are looking for an economy vehicle, this is NOT the car. It gets 13 in town and 19 on the road. But I knew that before I purchase the vehicle. I would buy it again.
I bought a used 2005 escalade 5 years ago and have driven it for 50K miles. I have a 2x2 and need a 4x4 so I am forced into buying another vehicle. I have looked at every vehicle it it's class, including new, and I am SO sad I have to give up my old escalade. I am spoiled now and nothing else can compare. However, as another reviewer wrote, I have had ongoing problems with the "skin" on both front and rear consoles as well as with the leather seats (cracking and peeling). The consoles and both front seats have been "reskinned" at the dealer four times and it's happening again. This is disappointing, to be sure, but it is the only problem I have had ... mechanical or otherwise. It's a comfy ride!!
Will NEVER buy another one
I own one of these. All I can say about this vheicle is BE READY TO GET RID OF IT ONCE YOUR WARRANTY EXPIRES! This status symbol is ALL LOOKS and NO Value. I purchased one thinking I was going to keep it forever..but it has literally been in and out of the shop at least 7 times for everything from starting issues...odom stopped working.. front end castor bolt coming loose.... AC actuator went out TWICE (2 summers in a row) ..and center console started to peel because of a bad batch of paint during manufacturing. Google these issues, you will see they are very common in Cadillacs...especially the electrical and intermittent starting issues. My problems started just a few months after purchase. What's sad is a lot of the issues are known defects that the buyer is not made aware of by the manufacturer. Please do your homework on these first. Talk to some other owners and honest mechanics. You will see. Thank God for the manufactures warranty and the additional extended warranty I purchased. If not, I would be out of thousands of dollars! I've got to be honest..Cadillac makes some hot looking vehicles but they are NOT worth the hassle or the money. BUYER BEWARE!!
