2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A) Platinum Edition AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
I bought my escalade since I had to trade in my 2003 avalanche since the rear end locked up and the front hubs were shot. So I bought another full sized Chevy SUV. At first I was very happy! The truck performs above and beyond! Looks hotter than any other truck out there. The bad. Had to replace the transfer case at 65,000 miles, tire sensor at 60k, a $350 shock at 72,000 miles while doing xcountry road trip, heated and cooled seats went up front, brake caliper seizes up! Cup holder doors wouldn't close, had to call Cadillac since it was on back order. Steering makes noise in front. Navi gets confused sometimes. No factory cross members! Seriously on a platinum edition
HP! Not too shabby mpg for the size and engine. Took it to fl. Got 18.5 around town 14.5. Took it across country NY -nv. Pulling two jet skis and gear, still got 14.5 mpg. Thought tranny works weird with Cruise on! Love the acceleration and handling! Very good customer service with Cadillac!
little more quality for a $72,000 dollar suv. thinking this might be my last gm suv with all the ridiculous repairs.. would STRONGLY look at a ford expedition el! look at a better powertrain for awd. do like the rear locking differential
