This is the first SUV that I have ever owned and it will now be hard to go back to a normal car. My previous car was a Lexus IS300 which I loved as well. I haul around a lot of computer servers so upgrading to the Escalade made a lot of sense and it has not let me down. I have not had any major problems and the ride is smoother than expected. I would buy another Escalade in the future.
I use the navigation system all the time and it typically works great. Some streets here in Vegas are not on the DVD because they are so new though. I love how this truck looks. I put a vogue grill on it and some different tail lights so it sticks out a bit. It's great for driving around 6 people comfortably.
Some parts are cheaply made or could be put together better such as the air vents behind the front seats easily fall out of the roof area. Also the stock grill is cheap.
