Used 2012 Cadillac suvs Performance in Dulles, VA
Reviews for Cadillac Sport Utilities
excellent car - buying it again
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!
Sporty ride. Easy to drive. Super visibility. Plenty of legroom in front & back seats. Large cargo area. Sexy styling & color combinations. AWD for all weather! Advanced stereo, navigation & CD/DVD player systems. As a sexy senior citizen, my wife & I enjoy taking 4 of our adult friends out to dinner in our Cadillac SRX.
Horrible engineering and high maintenance cost
V8 AWD model. The mechanical engineering of this vehicle and component placement is simple awful. Combine that with overpriced parts and you're in for a maintenance nightmare. I always work on my own vehicles, but this car simply kicked my behind. Under 100K, the following items went bad, incomplete list: Both front engine mounts $1200 to replace - need to remove exhaust manifold to get to them. Radiator distribution hose $250. Coolant tank $150. HID headlight lamp $100 each + 2 hours in labor (entire front end needs to come apart). Engine coolant temperature sensor - need to drop transmission to get to. Thermostat. A/C blend door actuator. Can't rotate tires, so front wears out way too fast. Battery dies if car sits for over 5 days.
This price does not include tax, title, and tags. Additional fees may also apply depending on the state of purchase.
