Drive, ride, performance, style, technology - Best auto I have owned: this is my 2nd Escalade -- 5th Cadillac.
2008 Escalade lacking just a little bit...
2008 Cadillac EscaladeCar enthusiast MP - Los Angeles, Ca07/21/2009
I gave this car an overall 4 stars because it lacks some of the finer amenities found in comparable luxury vehicles. Some people may think it's petty, but I think it should be standard. For instance, there is no bluetooth available to connect to your mobile phone, instead they want you to subscribe to a second service (On Star), which the car isn't used enough to warrant it. The driver controls for windows does not have auto down or up for all windows,like other high end cars have. The escalade still uses a key, no push to start or stop engine. The remote start requires you to press lock then the hold the start button, where other cars you just push the remote start button and it locks the doors automatically and starts your car. It's just the little distinctions that make a car great and this one misses a few of them, but overall the whole package is still better than it's rivals. Great engine performance, interior roon/spaciousness, and exterior looks really set it apart.
I love this truck
2007 Cadillac Escaladebill m - Glen Burnie, MD03/25/2012
I traded in my 2004 escalade(not a single problem in 60,000 mi) for the 2007 ESV 11 months ago. Since then I have put about 26000 mi on it. It is the best vehicle I have owned in 50 years. At first I was disturbed because of initial problems and had gone back to Carmax about 4 times to take care of them (replace transmission hose, replace driver running board motor, rear window heater, and remote control fob). Carmax was excellent with the service. I towed a 30' camper (7500lbs) all over Maryland, Pa, and Western Md mountains with no problems. This truck can really haul! Mpg is as expected 14 stop and go and as high as 19 on the highway.
Towing the 7500lbs is 7-8 mpg doing 60 - 65mph. It is quiet and very comfortable for my 6'2" frame. Will buy another escalade ESV in a couple more years!!!
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.
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
Lots of eager shoppers may be surprised to know that many of the features found on some of the latest 2018 vehicles are already available on newer used cars. Here’s a breakdown of some of these cool features.
When Cadillac first rolled out its CTS in 2003, the car’s combination of high performance and luxury features had everyone taking notice. It is now, as it was then, a mid-size sedan out to eat BMW’s and Audi’s lunches. The CTS targets both the enthusiast and luxury market at the same time.
There are cars that do the job, and there are cars that get the job done with style. The Cadillac CTS and Audi A6 are two examples of the latter. They’re the kind of cars you can treat yourself to as a reward for hard work, or perhaps as an indulgence. If you’re fortunate to shop for a car like this, it can be mighty hard to choose between the two. Here’s a CarMax comparison to help, whether you’re searching for a used Audi or a used Cadillac for sale.
