Leader Of The Pack — Most like whether traveling alone to work or with 6 other passengers on vacation, it provides a very comfortable ride. Most dislike the expensive repair parts, but that's to be expected. I've enjoyed driving my 2004 Cadillac Escalade more than any other vehicle ever owned.

Pros

super sexy and stylish and a cut above the average SUV  - the "Cadillac" of SUV's

Cons

not great on gas - but if you can afford a Cadillac, most people aren't worried about the gas$

The "cadillac" Of Suv's — great pickup - engine for LA freeway driving. But can go up to the mountains for fishing/boating. Even pulled a horse trailer couple of times. Fancy enough for special occasions out. And versatile enough to drive all the kids to soccer practice and back

Wonderful Car — We have used this car for family vacations and the roominess was wonderful, did have to put a cargo carrier on top for extra luggage, but with 6 people it was to be expected. Drives very smooth over bumpy roads and is very quiet inside. Would recommend it for anyone looking for a car for 2, wanting comfort and power for towing at the same time, also extra space when need it for more passenger. Third row seat folds easily forward when not in use.

Pros

The Escalade is the top of the line SUV in it's class. The 2002-2006 model is the best Escalade made in my opinion. It's sleek and sexy and still very masculine. The Escalade has plenty of room and has many many options the are available when it comes to customization. You can do just about anything to make it stand out from the rest. I love this SUV.

Cons

The real negative points are that it does drink a lot of gas. And the storage space is limited unless you buy the ESV model. Other than that the Escalade is a great SUV to own.

It's Showtime! — This is the best SUV on the open market and i would highly recommend that anyone who can afford to buy this SUV to do just that. If you want a great family car and a super awesome car that is easy to hook up, This is the one for you.

Good Car But Could Be Better Considering It's A Cadillac — The covering on the radio buttons is easily scratched off with your fingernails leaving the exposed ugly plastic. The dealer replaced it once and only once even though it continued to be the same way years after warranty expires. A/C actuators are not reliable and several have broken costing thousands! yes thousands of dollars. Rear removable seats are EXTREMELY heavy! Heater on passenger seat went out just after warranty did. Air bag shocks were thousands of dollars to replace. Dash sensor for headlights has gone out repeatedly. I just expected more from Cadillac.

Great Family Car! — Don't really like the rims (like the 2007+ rims better), but overall this has been a great family car. We got 14.7mpg average, which isn't good for today's cars, but not bad for a large SUV such as this one.

Pros

Classic styling for this 04 Cadillac Escalade. Luxury all the way. Plenty of power for a larger SUV. Comfortable seats and the heat warmers feel really good.

Cons

Goes through the gas a little faster if your on the pedal a lot. I'd recommend a tornado fuel saver to help on the mileage. Mine was suppose to have the 3rd rom seats but they were missing when I purchased the vehicle. Will get them replaced eventually. Front stairing is a little shakey when flooring the gas but I just noticed that when I tested out the power. I dont normally floor it so it's very smooth otherwise.

Classic Cadillac Luxury. — I love the style and all the options. The name says it all and the look turns heads when your driving. All the options are nice to have but I love the heated seats and the sunroof the best. I have 24 inch rims that complete the look. Needed to upgrade my Onstar to digital because it was still analog when I bought it. Got to have Onstar! It just safe and helpful.
