#84 of 1005 How frustrating
Sep 03, 1999 (3:30 am)
I've had my fingers crossed for the new platform for this year. I really want an SUV for this winter and would love an Escalade, but it seems silly to buy one one year before the new platform comes out. I also didn't want to deal with a drop-down tailgate; too hard to reach over to load and unload. I had hoped for a liftgate, which the GM website says will be an option on the Yukon for 2000. My cadillac dealer says he has a 2000 Escalade in now with the "barn door" style doors. I'll keep hoping until October, then tear my hair out trying to decide what to do. I'm glad to hear from greyghst that the ride is really smooth. I'll have to drive one. I went with friends to test drive a Land Cruiser and it was fantastic. I would really like to see the Escalade measure up.
#85 of 1005 Mis-Aligned
Sep 06, 1999 (3:19 pm)
Bought an Escalade about two weeks ago. Love the truck but am having serious problems with alignment. At first the truck pulled badly to the left, with or without any braking input. A trip to the local Caddy store did not correct the problem (they said that they aligned the truck). A second trip resulted in a new set of wheels and tires, a second alignment and slightly less "Towards the median we go" pulling". The problem seems to be amplified by any crown on the roadway. Let me know if anyone else is experiencing these types of problems
#86 of 1005 Deals & Residuals for '99?
Sep 07, 1999 (4:22 am)
I was at the local Cadilac dealer today. 1999 & 2000 models are on the lot. No change in pricing for 2000 (yet) ... based on the last price increase for the late 1999's. Can anyone tell me what numbers they are getting for residuals? I have been told 59% for 45K and 62% for 36K on a 3 year lease. How do these numbers compare.
I have also seen notes of dealers selling at MSRP. Just wondering how that is now that we are closer to 2000, and with the 1999's on the lot. Locally, we have $1,500 rebate on 99 Escalade ... and $1,000 on Denali. 2000 Denali has On-Star as standard ... supposedly some sort of difference in the services offered between the Denali and Escalade (vanilla, vs. vanilla fudge)?
#87 of 1005 Suggestion
Sep 15, 1999 (3:53 pm)
For all potential escalade buyers: why not buy a
Denali and donate the extra do-re-mi to charity?
Or better yet, send it to me. Of course, it you want to pay $$$ simply for a Cadillac badge on a
GMC truck, then I guess that's your deal. Don't know if anyone else remembers the Cimmaron, but Caddy's continual badge engineering is pathetic.
#88 of 1005 News on 2001

Anyone have any news on the 2001 model. What changes are in store beyond the platform modification?

#90 of 1005 Escalade info.
Oct 03, 1999 (7:14 pm)
I am looking into buying an Escalade and have already taken a test drive. I was extremely impressed and am very interested. Can anyone give me some info. on their experiences with the Escalade? Pros., Cons. problems that I didn't see in the test drive? Also, how far were you able to haggle the price down to? Let me know ASAP. Thanks!
#91 of 1005 Do not waste your money !!!!!

Do not waste your time or $$ buy a Lexus Lx470..........
#92 of 1005 not likely!!!
Oct 04, 1999 (1:52 am)
There is not a chance I would by a Lexus. They are too overpriced and are basically a gussied up Toyota. Thanks anyway.
