2002 Cadillac Escalade EXT 4dr Crew Cab AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


The Ext is great, but it does have it's problems. The knobs on the midgate window support (when folding down the back seats) are prone to break off, leaving your glass "less than secure" while hauling. The power windows sometimes seem to work harder than necessary (mine was on the front pass. side). The locking mechanism on the embedded side boxes have failed on both sides, never staying quite locked, and will blow open at highway speeds(however, I've only experienced this while riding without the cargo securing sections on the truck). The leather is nice, but the carpeting is 2nd grade. Drivers side control for outside power mirrors is "jinky" for lack of precise movement

Favorite Features

This report was written by a guy who has owned the ext for two years, and the "fantasm" of the vehicle has worn off. Still, an excellent truck, despite overall a little more paste and glue should have been used to make interior parts secure and possess longevity.

Suggested Improvements

Changing the tire was a joke with the jack. Jack could not elevate enough to receive new(spare) tire. Wasted 41 minutes with the jack, dislodging the tire from under the bed cab, removing the flat, only to have a jack that was maybe 8 inches too short to provide clearance for the good tire.
