2005 Cadillac Escalade EXT Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab AWD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my 2005 Cadillac Escalade EXT with 90,000 miles. I have had to replace the transmission, front differential, and the transfer case (which I am currently looking for). I had a 1997 Tahoe with 287,000 miles and it ran like a new automobile until I was hit in the back and totaled it. That was the bomb. This one has been the biggest money pit. Sorry I ever purchased this vehicle. The sunroof is leaking costs another $1,000.00. Close to $9,000...shame.

Review

I bought my 2005 EXT in Oct 2004 and still own it today (April 2015) with 240,000 miles. This is the best damn car/truck I've ever owned. Runs and looks great with only minor maint issues over the years.

Review

Hi readers...i had a bmw525 07 and for obvious economical reasons i had to go down on budget, but i didnt wanted to loose the confort and prestige i had. I picked the Escalade since its well knowing and its American! 05 with 60k miles on it...no regrets at all!!


Best Features

AWB since i pull my 20' boat every weekend...the roomy box to put all my stuff...


Worst Features

for that year i wish had an up dated panel control...but its still good

Review

Hi I just steped out of a BMW525 07 since economy obligated me to lower down my bills...and i wanted a USA truck (work reasons) but i didnt wanted to loose the luxury...and i didn't. This truck will meet my needs and expectations...has far of mechanical problems my truck has little over 60k and so far so good. Gas its a little issue but is a truck with a powerfull 6.0 v8 if i was going to watch over that i would have gotten a 4 or 6 cyl. I wanted to be able to move my boat..load boxes in the trunk..take my bikes...and still feeling i was on my 525i 07 and i am!

Review

We love this truck. Try driving a F150 and compare gas mileage! Or a Tundra. What do people expect when they drive a truck? We're getting over 18 on the hwy with over a 100,000 problem free miles! In fact, we are buying a new one.


Best Features

The overall luxurious feel and ride.


Worst Features

It would be nice if the tailgate locked & unlocked with the remote locking system.
