1999 Cadillac Escalade 5.7 Liter V8 from North America
Terrible Quality and high price
This is an extremely poor quality vehicle from the start. In the past 6 months I have had to replace the O2 sensors twice, the ECU (computer that controls the engine), the Fuel Pressure Regulator, several fuel injectors, the real passenger power outlets stopped working, the rear controls for the stereo actually 'fell off' although I have never even used them (cheap plastic) and it has been smoking for no apparent reason. The A/C stopped working on 'high' and the repair cost $1,300.
The Escalade is a great LOOKING vehicle and when it is working it actually has a smooth, quiet ride. The problem is there is always something needing repair, the entire vehicle is poorly built, door handles have come loose, components have stopped working for no reason and it has TERRIBLE gas mileage. After owning this SUV I will NEVER purchase another American built vehicle. Cadillac service has been terrible and overpriced.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Well I am sorry you have had those problems with your Cadillac. One thing I learned rather if it is an American vehicle or import it needs regular up keep,and that may the reason why it smokes. Cadillac can be costly to repair, but you're paying for what you're getting (a Cadillac). My suggestion to you would be to keep up on the maintence on it and that's with any vehicle, American or not!
