Love the Escalade. As for mileage, I'm pretty used to spending more at the pump, already owning an SUV. However, it gets poor mpg. Living in the city I get roughly 10.3 mpg. The best Hwy mpg was 17.6; pretty much coasting downhill. As for build quality, could be better for a luxury truck. Overall, very satisfied with the Escalade.

Make sure the craftmanship isn't shoddy. Every detail should be made to perfection since it's boasting the Cadillac name.
