From hauling the kids to school to hauling the boat to the ocean...

2006 Cadillac Escalade Base

My Escalade has given me many years of reliable performance. I have stayed up to date on preventive maintenance and have had no major issues with anything going wrong. My suspension squeaks more than I would like it to and since there are no grease pivots I don't really know how to fix that but other than that I have gotten a lot of good miles out of my truck. The heated seats and remote start have really been a blessing in winter and when I do end up buying another vehicle it will most definitely be an Escalade.

Leather heated seats, wood grain accents, and lots of added luxury.

2006 Cadillac Escalade Base

I big dollar problem me was the HID light bulbs. When they go out they're $125 a piece. They used to be dealer only but I've found some websites have got it down to $75. It has a lot of power and rides smooth. Very reliable and many different features like seat warms makes it comfortable. Gas mileage not the best but it's nice smooth comfortable ride on long trips.

- Abdul S

Nice car to drive around in and show off.
