Makes the road more visible and the driver feel more comfortable and safe.

No complaints other than the gas mileage could be better. If I could have had a hybrid, then I would feel better about as far as more economical. Over all it is a very good, reliable, safe vehicle for my two small children who ride in car seats and myself most of the time.

- Jenny G

It runs better on premium oil and gasoline. I have my oil changed every 6 weeks instead of every three months.

I love my vehicle. It is the right size for transporting my family and it has all the right feature to make me feel like I own the road. However, it is getting older so it requires more maintenance and repairs than it used to.

- LaReina B

If you travel a lot take in consideration the gas as it doesn't get good gas mileage.

I have only had one issue with my Cadillac Escalade. The windshield wiper fluid doesn't come out. I have yet to have problem looked at. But overall a very reliable vehicle. Very spacious and comfortable.
