Rolling the dice on the 08 'Slade
By Halls1030 on
Vehicle
2008 Cadillac Escalade 4dr SUV AWD (6.2L 8cyl 6A)
Review
Decided on the 08 AWD Escalade after test driving the 08: MDX, GL320 & 450, Q7, Range Rover Sport, X5, & Sequoia Platinum. We decided to roll the dice on GM after getting an unbelieveable deal on a lease. Now anyone doing homework on the Escalade knows this SUV has pros/cons. Reliability issues, possible wind noise, gas mileage...and while we liked the GL 320 & 450 the pricing was too good to pass up on the Caddy. Wife loves it. Tons of room inside, great rear-entertainment (unfortunately it blocks rear view mirror. No problems to date though. We love the curb appeal as well. I will say anyone shopping an large SUV must check out the 08 Seqouia Platinum. Understated & loaded!
Favorite Features
Looks, OnStar & Verizon cell phone integration with the OnStar system, cabin space/storage, horsepower, back- up camera, touch screen nav and ability to view DVD in front while SUV in park, throaty exhaust note, acceleration and horsepower.
Suggested Improvements
Gas mileage (should be a given with this vehicle if you have researched you know this is a trade-off of ownership), Telescopic steering wheel (power tilt and telescopic at that), 3rd row needs to be power fold flat seats, push button start, bluetooth or sync, ipod or mp3 jack(s).
