#2 of 298 2wd vs 4wd
May 14, 2002 (8:39 am)
No comparison in ride-- ( 4wd better) --- no way to tell difference--- we were demoed a 4wd that we were told was a 2wd--- dealer would not deal with us on price-- so we ordered a 2wd from another dealer --- now we have a mess-- the 2wd should not bear the cadillac name. All reviews i have seen talk about the 4wd escalade.

Anyone with these kind of problems out there?
My Escalade is beautiful and I still believe in all the hype but mine is eight months old and the first nite the power steering went out,then their was some kinda of noise in the rear underneath witch turned out to be a heat shield,and the rear hatch needed to be adjusted because in a turn it would turn on the interior lights,then the 02 censor needed to be replaced,now the awd has a drive line noise that they cannot fix,also the rattle in the dash (first they have to find it)!
The driver side mirror won't adjust out enough to see down the side. Any one with these problems?
#4 of 298 Escalade custom wheels

I have a 2002 Escalade with custom (GM) wheels that seem to lose their wheel covers easily. I've had the SUV for 1 year and have replaced 4 covers at about $45 bucks each. Anyone had the same problem? Any solutions?
#5 of 298 Transmission clunk
Nov 12, 2002 (3:21 pm)
Bought a 2003 Escalade EXT in September and the transmission makes a clunk just before the vehicle stops. This sound is the transmission dropping back into first gear after it has run up through the gears. I mentioned it to the service department and the lubed the transmission spline, but did not seem to help. Next time I go in for service I am going to test drive a new one to make a comparison. Does anyone else notice this or is it just me or my EXT?
#6 of 298 Escalade transmission

My 2002 Escalade's transmission will occasionally make a low pitched grinding sound. I haven't been able to figure out when it will happen and I can't make it happen. My brother-in law's Denali does the same thing. Post an answer if you find one.

Are you sure it's the transmission? My '02 Denali makes a sort of low-pitched buzzing/humming sound that occurs intermittently at low rpms, only after the truck has warmed up. I think it's either a heat shield or a baffle in one of the mufflers. I had our service manager test drive it with me and he agreed.
I can get it to do it pretty consistently if I drive the truck long enough to warm up, then put it in drive, hold the brake and accelerate to about 1500rpm or so. More of a nuisance than anything,and something for which I originally made plans to have fixed, but I've decided just to wait 'til my next scheduled service.

I have a 2003 denali and I get the same clunk. It is the same engine and transmission. It is because the gear goes into 1st too eatly and you feel the hard downshift. They need to adjust the shift point for this car. I have called but they won't listen!!
