by ahmedsqt / November 11, 2005 1:45 PM PST

Hi every one;
Is there anyone in this forum who owns a Cadillac escalade or knows about it that can tell me about. I just heard that it's not economy but it's stable on the road!. I am about to buy one but I am a hesitant because I don't know about it.

...And an overall piece of crap.

Wannabe nouveau rich drive these pieces of bling bling and most of them live in trailer parks.

Want to scream to the world that you're white trash....buy an Escalade.

Stick with a Honda Pilot Or Acura MDX.

GM builds excelent SUVs. Although my family doesn't have an escalade, we have a late model GM SUV, and we couldn't be happier with it. The best advice I could give you is test drive one, and then go from there. If it fits you and you like, you will be happy with it.

f.y.i: I am willing to bet that the people are either rabid environmentalists (nobody who can afford a Caddy ever complains about mpg) or just don't like american cars in general. In either case, I doubt either one has ever driven an escalade. I have, but only for a day, I liked it a lot.

You will smile at the gas pump
by Dan Filice / February 17, 2006 9:11 AM PST

Because gas will again again be hitting the $3 per gallon by summer and when you fork over $60 every three days to fill up this tank, you can only smile because it's the only thing you can do to keep your sanity short of killing yourself for buying this thing. In any case, Iraq will certainly thank you.

Look At The Up Side Here....
by Psych Doc / February 17, 2006 11:14 AM PST

...This worthless steamship on wheels will probably be in the shop as much as on the roads so that should cut down on those trips to the pumps.

But just think, when it's lucky enough to be on the road, with every block he drives, he'll be telling the world what a worthless piece of trailer park garbage he is!

C'mon, that's worth something.

Just a response to a few people on this page:

1: (directed at "joseluvsmoney") You could not be a more pathetic example of nouveau-riche gaudiness that is invading our country. Daddy buys you everything? Well, in todays "sound" economy, I'm pretty sure that owning an Escalade with disgusting, oversized rims is not the most sound investment to be making. American car companies are in the toilet, and sales of your beloved "gashog" are plummeting. If you own two, why do you say that one is your father's? You need to be more clear with your message because you sound like you were educated in some third-rate school system. It's rather confusing. I agree with Psych Doc, you have absolutely no sophistication, taste,or culture, and your futile attempts to appear rich are easily discarded. Why the deuce do you even need six televisions in your car? You are the reason why our economy is in shambles as of late: your father, who bought you everything and raised an unproductive, unintelligent member of society, probably based everything on poor collateral and lost a lot of money by buying everything on credit, not cash. See where your Escalade has gotten you now?

2: (directed at 0wnz) Your late model GM SUV is not even remotely comparable to the plasticky, falling-apart models that Cadillac is putting out today. Yes, I am in fact a rabid environmentalist, but in the search for a new car, my parents (who can afford a Cadillac, easily) complained heavily about not just Cadillac's average MPG, but American car MPGs as well. They ended up with a Lexus, something reliable and with respectable MPG. On the contrary, I HAVE driven an Escalade, as well as a Tahoe and a Suburban, and they all have poor ride. The turning radii are dreadful,and the acceleration is pitiful as well. The MPG is only one of the major problems I can bring to the surface about these pieces of garbage that congest the roads of McMansionville, USA.

To answer the original question at hand, please consider whether you even need an SUV, let along a full-size model. If you do, consider the Honda Pilot definetely, and if you're looking for luxury, the Lexus RX350 is respectable, with an average of 20 MPG on the non-hybrid model.
