This Escalade is nothing short of an outstanding vehicle. If you are looking for command presence, curb appeal, and attitude that works in all weather conditions, look no further. Pros: -Excellent V8 engine that snarls when you put your foot down and has no trouble smoking most vehicles on the road. -Handles well -Good sound system Cons: -The interior build quality is a real black eye. They dropped the ball on this one. -Some replacement parts are pricey -Electronics build quality is also a little spotty

Gonna take it to 250k!

We love this truck! Keep in mind it is just that...a full size truck, just all dressed up. We bought it used with 76K and in 1 year we have already crossed 100K, and not a flicker. I am a huge fan of this GMC line up. The ride, power and class is second to none. We plan to go 250k miles before we upgrade to another. This is the best family vehicle! Lots of power, comfort and class. Buy one and you will see why most Escalade owners go for a second.

I received my 2004 Escalade as a Christmas gift from my husband in 2003. I fell in love at first site. I have had very little problems until recently. Nothing major, the speedometer went out. I brought it in to be fixed. Wasn't cheap. My husband also bought an Escalade EXT as a result of mine. He purchased his a year later. His speedometer just went out too. We were told to call Cadillac that there is a Campaign that we should be reimbursed for the part. I am currently fighting with them as they are telling me that I didn't have this "Special Policy". I have talked to many GM owners who have had to replace speedometers. Other than that, I LOVE my caddy.

I purchased my 2004 Escalade with the 6.0 liter in February. It was certified and came with the extended factory bumper to bumper 6yr/100k warranty. I hear about people complaining about it's fuel economy, but you must realize that behind all the chrome and flash that this is still a 5700 lb truck with a 6 liter V8. I use to get about 17 mpg on the highway, but I have installed a K&N filter($50) and a custom Flowmaster exhaust system($450), and now I get between 20-21 mpg with premium(93 octane) gas on the highway cruising at 70 mph, with 22" wheels. If fuel consumption is a worry for you, then simply don't buy an suv. But this truck is absolutely awesome, especially on long 200+ mile trips.

We love the truck, very powerful and reliable, excellent quality when it comes to drive train. The only reason why I might never buy another Cadillac after owning soooo many is the cheap and horrible design of the interiors. I'm begging Cadillac to change their outdated mindset of plastic and unimaginative thinking and take example from Lincoln when it comes to interior design. Power rear hatch, folding rear seats, rain sensor wipers, cooled leather seats, center shifter, and please get rid of the plastic! Make it a Cadillac not a Tahoe with enhanced cheap trim. We are all getting tired of GM cutting corners on Cadillac. If it does not change, my selection will.

I have always dreamed of owning a Cadillac. With a family of five,this vehicle tailors to all, conveniently and with room to spare. A pleasure to drive to the market or long distance. First drive a Tahoe. Then drive the Escalade. You will notice the difference. You get what you pay for,defenitely. You will also get the attention of your friends, family and neighbors. It is my trophy.

When i purchased my escalde i was informed it had a dvd entertainment center in it and once the sell was complete i found out that they sold me a vehicle that did not have one so the sales people are selling a vehicle that they know nothing about. Also i bought a interior cleaning and stain guard when i picked up my vehicle from haveing it serviced at bill cookes which also included the under rust proofing i was shocked to find my vehicle in such awful shape that i was upset with them and will never return when i contacted caddilac inc they did nothing about my complaint of the dvd entertainment center. so my complant is that they should not sell a vehicle

Best SUV I've every owned! Traded Suburban for my '04 Black Escalade. Only 2k miles so far..but love it. DVD and all the options. Only suggestion is to get a few customers in to work with your Navigation system engineer (s)..they need to get a taste of what it's like to use it while driving.

Test Drove most other SUV's. With them I felt a truck is a truck til I drove the Escalade ESV. Rides like a car, drives like my Mercedes and the Vortec engine is better than any other make. Plenty of power, outstanding handling and steering, excellent braking. All wheel drive is great in the winter. Can not say enough good things. Just wish my wife would let me drive it a little more. Buy one.

I love my Escalade, but there are several things that I think GM has to improve upon. 1.The Navigation system is complicated, you must be in park for most of the features to work. 2. Get rid of the vennered wood on the dash and use the real stuff,the dash of my husband's BMW is real wood! 3. Different standard rims My car has been in the shop 3 times already and I have not even had it a year: 1. Seat problem, latch was broken so I could not lower the back seat. 2. Vibrating noise upon acccelerated. Still happens 3. At times the engine will not turn over, almost like it's flooded. I just got the car back, and it's still happening

I love it

Of course it uses a lot of fuel, but that cannot be avoided as it exceptional power allows total freedom to do anything. The ride is astonishly smooth and the control is amazing for such a large vehicle. Top it all off with style, what esle could anyone want? Nice job Cadillac!

We purchased this Escalade because we drive to the mtns alot with small children and TWO big dogs on a two way mtn road. We use our all-wheel drive when seeking out good trailheads in summer, and skiing in the winter. We have bad backs and nothing beats the comfort of the seats. There is plenty of room for passengers and storage; the backup sound devise plus all-wheel safety with reasonable gas mileage considering the load all make it a winner for us. Oh! The TV is a God send for long trips to Disneyland. It is a luxury truck like no other on the market.

If you want utility AND luxury, the Escalade is your toy. Go with the AWD and you won't be disappointed. You'll never be at a loss for horsepower. Regarding comfort I'll put it against any sedan ... the ride is smooth and bumps in the road are essentially none existant. If you don't mind watching the gas gage move in front of your eyes and want a pure luxury vehicle, GO FOR IT!

This is the nicest riding vehicle I have had, and I have had 3 lexus's before this Escalade. The car handles very smoothly and is so much fun to drive I don't mind taking long car trips anymore. I have also wanted an SUV that didn't drive like a truck. After one test drive I knew I had to have this vehicle. It has great pickup and speed and all the safety features I would want to cart around my 5 grandchildren.

We needed something to transport my handicapped wife and her electric three- wheeler. The ESV Escalade far surpassed our expectations. It is comfortable, powerful, smooth and easily swallows her alternative transportation. We have averaged 15-16 MPG in town and 17-18 MPG on the road at 75MPH, A/C on. I will not buy another car without the GPS NAV system and Satillite radio. We are spoiled rotten!

Hard to believe that after all these years GM cannot build a dashboard that does not squeak! Not as noisy as my benchmark 74 Camaro, but can't the imports teach Detroit a thing or two in building a $62k car? The driver's door when slammed sounds like my old 85 K5 tailgate-like something is loose and broken inside. All these were present since purchase. Interior leather is excellent but lets add the standard Cadillac rain sensor, not the Chevy wiper delay. And how about he seat massager like the DTS? Great overall look but too many places to clean-how about moving the gaskets closer to the outside as to limit dirt from getting into so many panels?
