2010 Cadillac Escalade ESV SUV Platinum Edition 4dr SUV (6.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Formerly an OEM Plt Mgr & Tier 1 Auto Engr & OEM Supplr for 36 years now retired. It's embarrassing after paying $80K for a 2010 Escalade Plat to have a w/shield wiper chatter prob. rt out of box. After 4 dealer attempts & conversations with GM Tech Center engrs can't fix and gave up. Wiper chatter happens only during rain & not while using washer fluid. I developed a test to simulate rain with garden hose gently sprinkling because the local dealer service could not duplicate. Once tried they saw my wipers chatter along with all of the Escalades on dealer lot. Tried all versions of a/mkt wipers. Asked for Engrs DFMEA RPN's for wiper chatter but will contact Esc Platform Mgr to put on notice.


Favorite Features

Engine & Performance


Suggested Improvements

ESC Des Engr DFMEA should show wiper chatter probs. with all potential contributors & Risk Priority Numbers. Engrs attempts to fix - asking me re: wax on w/shield from car washes, cleaning with bonami & new wipers. Then repeat as wiper hardens. W/shield can be warped. I'll contact Esc Platform Mgr.

2010 Cadillac Escalade ESV SUV Platinum Edition 4dr SUV AWD (6.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This Caddy is IT! I've had Mercedes and Lexus that can't come close to providing the comfort and reliability that this vehicle can. It's quiet, roomy, and, for an SUV, relatively light on its feet. They will have to come up with something pretty spectacular to get me out of this one.


Favorite Features

Tehama leather seats and trim, wood/aluminum trim, heated/cooled cup holders.


Suggested Improvements

In a perfect world, better fuel economy.

Review

I previously owned a 08 Cadillac Escalade which had automatic wipers. It's very dumb to drop such a convenient feature.


Favorite Features

Horse power.


Suggested Improvements

Rain sensing Wipers. Fold flat third row.

Review

This is overall a very capable car. Excellent cargo capacity and third row room, which is very important with a family of 8 and three dogs, all of which fit fine. It is lacking a third row that folds flat, which is crucial in the class that its in. No one-touch windows either, which is annoying. The gl has this but not as roomy. Its a good car overall though.


Favorite Features

Heated and cooled cup holders, good amount of horsepower, smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

Fold-flat 2nd and third row. Adaptive Headlights and night vision. Heated, cooled, and massaging seats in all rows. Pannera Sunroof. Front, middle, and side parking sensors. Push start and hidden key pad like in new Taurus. One touch windows and refrigerator. dual entertainment systems in 1+2 rows.
