2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV SUV AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We bought this 2003 esv 1 month ago and we owned an 2000 excursion 4x4. We sold it to buy this what a great riding suv. The awd works great and we got an avg of 16.6 in stop and go traveling from va beach to north Carolina beaches.NOT BAD..we use to get 11 mpg The Int is so nice but I'm disappointed in the rear cargo area with all the plastic..could have done more...


Favorite Features

the leather seats


Suggested Improvements

cup holders and ash tray covers like to not shut.rear back up needs a camera through the navigation unit

2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV SUV AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased this SUV in Nov 07 with 80,000 mi. Looks great and engine runs smooth. I am disipointed that I had to rebuild the front diff at 82000 and replace the power steering at 85000. If this continues I will have to trade it in for newer. With 5 kids my choices are limited. My other SUV is a 97 Lexus LX450 with 165000 mi and I have not had to replace or fix anything major. I hope GM will step up the quality and build a truck that will last 200,000mi or I will go back to Toyota products once I don't need 7 seats plus storage.


Favorite Features

Great curb appeal. 4 bucket seats are one reason I didn't buy another Lexus LX. Holds the whole family plus our stuff.


Suggested Improvements

Build it with parts that will last more than 80k. Power rearview mirror would be nice since my wife cant reach it

Review

To be honest; if all American-made cars were this good there'd be no moaning in Detroit! It looks great, the smooth ride is inimitable and it's fired-up every time in hot and cold without a blip. I wish this vehicle would last forever; but then again, at this rate it just might!


Favorite Features

Looks, seats, ride.


Suggested Improvements

More console room between the two front bucket seats.
