We bought a 2006 last summer in 2010 and since the moment I started driving this beauty I realized what Cadillac is all the fuss about. I love it. Front differential went out and could be an expensive fix. Other than that the car has 100 + miles and it drives like new.
20 inch rims option, very stylish electric everything even mirrors comfort seat and plenty of space all around Performance noise and pick up speed :)
I consider myself a 'car guy' and have an '02 540i black on black manual 6 speed. I love cars and research them in my spare time!?! I reluctantly leased an '04 Escalade ESV when the Chevy Suburban salesman tried to rob me! Unhappy at the time, but momma wanted it so 4 years later, we loved the truck so much we decided to buy it off lease and were heartbroken when GMC wouldn't negotiate. We looked at the Lexus and the Denali among others. Just today we bought an '06 Escalade and couldn't be happier! The others didn't have the ride, the comfort, reliability or the look! we feel like we're home again!
Comfort, beautifully designed appointments interior, reliability. As my wife says, prettiest car on the road! Stabilitrac a definite plus.
My wife thoroughly enjoys this car. She always told me it was an old man's car. I would not try to take it away from her. It was the first Cadillac she ever drove. Her other car was a Lexus and Camry. She won't ever consider a Lexus now.
Had a 2002 Escalade and found a great deal on new 2006 AWD that had been on the lot. Some minor changes such as XM stereo, navigation, phone from the 2002. Rides a little smoother. All in all another great SUV. Have averaged 18.5 MPG on freeway a liitle better than the 2002 which was 17.5. No one mistakes this Cadillac SUV for just another SUV.
Love the 6.0 Liter 345 HP /4 speed tranny. The exhaust seems to growl a little bit more. I wrote in 2002 that I love the engine power and the fuel mileage with load/weight capacity. I live in the Northern California Sierras and I like the fact I can pass when needed. No problem!
Really can not think of any. If you do not feel safe driving this SUV/Truck with car like ride with auto adjust ride then you missed out on the whole Cadillac SUV thing.
