Unfortunately not, I had it into the dealership for an oil change and tire rotation the other day and talked with them about it again (for the 3rd time). I am fed up with this dealership for many reasons (pretty sad when its a Cadillac dealership) a new dealership opened locally for Cadillacs so I am going to try taking it there hopefully within the next couple of weeks. If you find anything out in the meantime please let me know.

The problem with your rear heat, is most likely an actuator that is inoperative. I took my 2003 tahoe to the chevrolet dealer just recently and thats what they replaced. Now i have rear heat.

After I had the differential replaced my problem also continued. The next thing I did was have the transfer case replaced. Another HUGE expense, but it fixed the problem. People keep telling me that I need to trade, but have way too much $$$ invested to do that now! Hope this helps.

Thanks for such a quick response. I'll try and replace that first thing tomorrow. Hopefully this will finally resolve the grinding/growling/whining/clunking noise. I guess after that if I have any money left in my account I can spend the extra 3,500 they want to replace my slipping transmission as well. By the time I finish with all the repairs I will have spent just as much for repairs as I did for the truck itself. I might as well have bought a 2007 at this rate.

4 O2 sensors. They cost on average $150 per. I had mine replaced at a shop, $1,000. They don't look too hard to get to but it mentions needing a special tool.

My escalade has 50k miles on it and for some reason the tach just quit working..by that I mean it randomly sweeps up and down, sometimes it just lays there, etc. I have heard rumors that there might be a campaign on these & if not, is the dealer the only place to purchase (what I have heard) the replacement cluster. Thanks

That ramdomly occurs with mine. More often than not the power windows, radio, wipers, etc. also cease to function. When the center console was slapped, all would be okay. I removed the console and a module the size of a pack of cigarettes is located within. I tightened all connectors, thinking a loose ground was the culprit. That was last fall. Although I haven't driven it that much since, it has yet to show itself. (I hope I'm not tempting fate!). I do not know if this is a dealer only part or if an aftermarket version is available nor do I know the replacement cost or even if it is the source of my problem. Chances are it is!

#240 of 300 Brakes shudder
Jun 22, 2010 (7:49 pm)
I have an '07 Escalade with only 41,000 km. Recently the brakes have begun to shudder, when applied. Is this normal to occur so soon? I also have an '07 GMC Denali pick-up with over 60,000 km and no brake problems yet.
The Escalade is still under warranty. I know that brakes would not normally be covered under warranty but when this happens to soon might they be covered?
