Not Cadillac Quality
By Coveman6 on


2003 Cadillac Escalade AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


My second Escalade.I am disappointed
3.5k miles and plagued with problems.
Exhaust chimes after driving 5 miles
and parking as it cools. Seat heater
button is too close to the power window
button. Turns on heat when you try to
operate window. Air conditioning has
quit. Service stability alarm has come
on seeral times. Cargo door needs a
gorilla slam to avoid a door ajar alarm
as you are driving down the
street.Exhaust is mucher louder than
2002. Except for air conditioner,
dealer claims these are normal and I
have to live with it. Not at $50,000 I

Best Features

Great style. Promises a lot but quality is bad.

Worst Features

Exhaust system needs to be redesigned. Seat heater buttons need to be relocated. Dealer needs to be coached on what is normal to a Cadillac customer
