2004 Cadillac Escalade Owner Comments

problem #3

Feb 272008


  • 720,000 miles


I am the owner of a 2004 Cadillac Escalade and my speedometer has quit working it started malfunctioning/sticking, not showing correct speed on approximately February 27, 09 as of today it has quit working all together. When I called the local dealership (red noland Cadillac) I was advised the cost to repair the speedometer cluster would be approximately $370. And because I have aprox 72,000 miles on my vehicle the special bulletin that was issued by GM has expired. I asked the dealership if there were any exceptions to the special bulletin since I am only 2,000 miles over the threshold, I was told that if I was the original owner of the vehicle they could help me, but since I am not there was nothing they could do for me.

2004 Cadillac Escalade speedometer is not working properly. Two other Escalade owners of the same year who are neighbors have the same problem. Speedometer spends around and you are unable to determine your speed.
