cadillac  escalade   2011  Audi C. TUCSON, AZ  09/24/11  3.00 good car 
cadillac  escalade   2010  Audi C. TUCSON, AZ  09/24/11  n/a goos value - enjoy driving 
Cadillac  Escalade   2010  Ray M. GILLETTE, WY  08/06/11  4.00 Overall I like the Escalade although I feel through the years GM has been decontenting options previously included into options you have to pay extra for. Options that are included in lower models or other manufacturers you have to pay for in GM's flagship luxury, seems odd! If this practice continues I will stop buying Cadillac or GM for that matter and moving to a manufacture that gives me the most options and reliability for the money. On another note the brakes are spongy not great I would expect that at this level trim. The seat cover is lifting off of the body of the seat, also not expected at this level trim and cost. I feel Cadillac quality is not only slipping but greed is devaluing it's brand by decontenting options and making you pay $30k more for the top version to get these options. In my recommendation seek a different model, GM needs to get back to Quality and leading the pack instead of trailing and greed.

Cadillac  Escalade   2005  Samantha H. ,   07/19/11  n/a We originally purchased our 2005 Cadillac Escalade from my father-in-law. We have had the vehicle now for about 6 months and haven't had any problems with it up until about 3 weeks ago. While on a road trip to southern California, the Oil Pressure Low light came on as well as a loud beeping noise (same as the buckle seat belt noise). I pulled over and read in the user guide that it is dangerous to continue driving. So I called OnStar and had them tow the vehicle 20 miles to a local Cadillac dealer in central California. After nearly 7 hours of waiting to find out what the problem was, all they could tell me was that the oil pump needed to be replaced and that the oil sending unit needed to be replaced as well. Unfortunately I could only afford to replace the oil sending unit at that time. After it was replaced, the Low Oil Pressure light still continuously came on. The following day I had the vehicle towed to a different dealership in Merced, CA. There they told me that the Oil Pump needed to be replaced. So I called my husband and he wired the money to me to pay for such a labor intensive job. After nearly $1,300.00 later, the problem is still not fixed. I've also had all the oil lines cleaned and the light and noise still continue to come on when the vehicle comes to a stop or is at an idle. I am very frustrated that no one can tell me exactly what is going on with the car nor shed any light on how to attempt to fix this problem. Help!?

Cadillac  Escalade   2005  Ulysses H. CHELTENHAM, MD  06/13/08  4.00 My truck is pretty good but I hear knocking noise in the streering system. I took it to the dealer and they said it was commond in GM's big truck. But they want to charge me 400.00 to replace the system. I think it should be a recall. So is it a recall in place.
