We have thoroughly enjoyed this vehicle so far. The kids have enjoyed it and we are already ready for an ESV.

2003 Cadillac Escalade AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We have been very impressed with virtually all aspects of the vehicle so far. The XM radio is an unexpected pleasure. The comfort, ride and acceleration have been better than expected. The rear bucket seats and overhead vents have been great.


Favorite Features

Interior, ride, power, comfort, XM radio


Suggested Improvements

1. The removable, rear seats are just too heavy to be practical. 2. The gas mileasge is too low 3. The toggle vs touch screen approach on the GPS and radio is horrible. 4. Every time I open or close a window, the seat heater is accidentally turned on

Review

I have been nothing but dissappointed with this vehicle. From the slugish controls, to the cheap interior design. I mean it looked great at the dealership, until I got it home. It does have good power, but that just isn't enough.


Favorite Features

I like the warrenty.


Suggested Improvements

Start over...quality control, see if you can see what Lincoln is doing.

2003 Cadillac Escalade AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Basically just a "dressed up" Chevy suburban. looks too much like the 40k suburban but while its around 55k+. need yo put in more features/gadgets like the Lincoln. should have shift on the fly 4x4 so you can engage just 2wd instead of AWD.


Favorite Features

engine and reclining/ heated rear seats


Suggested Improvements

power liftgate, more ext colors, load leveling at all 4 tires not just the rear [look at Navigator's air suspension], power running boards [lincoln], and make it look different that the chevy/GMC tahoe/yukon and the suburban/yujkon xl
