2008 Cadillac Escalade 4dr SUV (6.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

I loved the look of the new Escalade and alas that is all the car is. Just something good to look at. But it is a mechanical nightmare. This truck looks, drives and feels like it was put together in a hurry. I only have 2500 miles on it and the tranny bucks like a horse at least 3 times a day. Cadillac has reprogrammed some kind of computer but it keeps doing it and they say that there is nothing that they can do to fix it. It also idles very rough, the first month we had it it was fine and now it vibrates so badly at stop lights that it is embarrassing. Cadillac told me to use premium, I have and it still does it.Sometimes the power lift gate does not want to work. Should've gotten a 08 Sequoia

Favorite Features

My favorite features would have to be the navigation system and the power lift gate.

Suggested Improvements

Too many to list, so I'll go with a few, intelligent key, real wood, more comfortable seats, a DOHC engine..and a locking gas cap or fuel filler release lever would be greatly appreciated.
