I have never owned a luxury vehicle before. I just traded in my 2004 Jeep Liberty for a 2002 Cadillac Escalade with 30,000 miles and it rides better than my Jeep did with only 6,000 miles. I love the roomy interior, the speakers are great, and the ride is so smooth. It's a heck of a way down if you forget how high up you are when exiting the car though! So far I'm happy, but I did get an extended warranty just in case things go wrong.
