2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT 4dr Crew Cab AWD SB (6.2L 8cyl 6A)


Have a 2008, bought new 26 months ago, worst investment, I've bought 4 Avalanche 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007 all I have enjoyed, but this Cad is the pitts. It not bad during winter but I live in Texas and you know it get hot. When A/C is on this truck will not shift right (been in to dealership repeatly, even the Owner of Dealership took it for a week and GM refuses to to fix it, told me to live with it or they would trade me out with imtimidation as trade difference.(I have bought several CADS. FROM THIS DEALERSHIP) GM knows they have a problem with the shifting and throttle body. you press petal to floor and get it to jump into first gear-then you are getting on brakes and transmission locks up

Best Features

Like NAV- camera, in-out running boards, etc

Worst Features

Throttle body, computer, transmission needs replacement
