If it's just you and the dog, I wouldn't even bother with a full size truck. I'd get a midsize.

I always wanted one, but the cost of one is crazy. Twice as much as the first house we bought. Maybe some day

Daughter has owned Accura. Lexus and her last vehicle was a Lincoln, all where bought new and all were AWD. She liked them all but said dealing with Lincoln over warranty covered issues wasn't worth the hassle so this time she trade the Lincoln in on another new Lexus and never looked back.

LX 470 ran from 1998-2007 with the well know million mile motor the 4.7L

Quality control & build quality are something GM can only dream about

Good luck with your selection...go drive an LX 570

Cadillac tests all the high end electronics in those models and they trickle down to the other lines once they are proven.

Don't pay to do endurance testing...


Other than that, How was the show Mrs. Lincoln?

A friend of mine has an Escalade for limo service with visiting celebrities here in Miami. He's had problems with it.

I don't know, but my 2 yo tricked out 4Runner is still pleasing to look at for me and pretty darn comfortable. Back seat folds flat. Very handy for me, since I'm often carting a lot of stuff.

If not, I'd probably go with a slicked out Yukon. That was my 2nd choice when I bought the 4Runner.

We've had three Suburbans and a Yukon and they've been plenty likable. I'm a fan of the platform, its been very good to us.
I wouldn't and didn't stretch to the Escalade, they seem to have gadget problems according to the few I know who own them.
The lift in price, to me, seems to far exceed the value. YMMV.

Only you would think of something like that. Is there something you're trying to tell us?

You might as well be painting a target on your back from a theft perspective. We have two GMC SUV's the same model, different years. One is the SLT version and the other is the Denali version. Both have been trip vehicles and both have the Theft Deterrent warning package. The SLT has never been touched, but the Denali has shown "Theft Detected" on the dash at least 6 times when it was locked and parked. A little understated in the vehicle department is never a bad idea. I didn't get a raise after I bought a nicer car than my vindictive boss drove.


My other auto is a .45

The wife has a caddy and it will be the last.

They are overpriced and they don't stand up to everyday use.

More problems with the gadgets they put in them than there should be.

Won't be getting another.

Minus a few small things. A Escalade is just a Chevy Tahoe/Suburban with Cadillac emblems.

Isn't the Escalade just a Denali with fancier trim?
My neighbor has one that's the Avelanche style, (older), . He loves, but it has had a lot of repairs, engine, paint issues, electronics---

We bought an 07 DTS from my mother in law, in 2013. My oldest drives it still. I had to put a new power steering hose on it for her two weeks ago. First repair in eight years. Its been bulletproof from my perspective. I'd own any Cadillac auto, would be glad to do so. I just don't see the need for the Escalade, myself.
