2005 Cadillac Escalade Owner Comments

  • 151,000 miles


My service airbag came on out of the blue as I was driving, than earlier this year my airride control went out air compressor and shocks, in Feb my rear bolts on the drive shaft were loose leaking fluid, my rear seat belt is malfunctioning for my son 8 years get stuck, my air conditioning is hot on one side and cold on the other Cadillac changed out a module three months later. It still does the same thing but I won't take it back because that's when all the other stuff starting happening rear bolts lose lost massive fluid then the air ride went out air compressor and shocks. When we opened the air compressor up it was rusted as if it had not worked in years so I truly believe that sewelle Cadillac damaged my SUV everything but the air on one side was getting hot not to mention they had my truck for over 7hrs as I waited in the lobby last year lost my one of my hubs the interior paint is peeling off the video player went out in 2007. My vehicle stays on when the doors are open and the key is off and out of the ignition the inside light switch comes on sometimes and this truck is almost paid but its a lot of money for all these things to go wrong. There is a lot more.
