I just took mine to the dealer last week. I got the phantom wipe fixed on the auto wipers. They updated the Engine computer with newer code. Did not help..in fact.. I think it is a little worse. With the A/C on, half throttle of the line will cause very noticable hesitation. I am trying to be patient since this is a new engine/tranny combo, but doesn't GM road test these darn things before mass producing?

OMG :0)...... I thought I was the only ones with vibration at highway sppeds, mirror vibration and hesitation!!!!
2 trucks, same thing
Mirrors, been in 3 times, replaced mirror and then tightened it up per bullentin. mirror is worst. I can fix with a peice of cardboard. They claim caused by wind reversion. My question, why not passenger side?
Phataom Wipe, got that
Vibrations: Been in 3x times, a little better but over 75-80 vibrates and is driving me crazy. People talk about low profile tires, etc... My vette cruises a 100 without a hint of vibration. so BS about low sidewalls. I am working with Customer Assistance on this.
Hesistation, they say no fix, but I came across a website that you can search for comupter updates by VIN. If I can find it again, I will post. But, yes, it said my truck needed tow updates.
I am giving customer assistance another shot before I go lemon law.

My 2007 Escalade doesn't have the vibration problems with 22" wheels but it does have the hesitation. Not that it helps much, but my Mercedes had the same issue and so do a lot of other luxury vehicles including Infinity and Lexus. Step on the gas and go nowhere while a big truck is coming to wipe you out. I think it's the technology that is the problem, not Cadillac specifically. Of course, that doesn't do us much good now.
Keep us informed.

#87 of 301 2007 escalade white diamond paint
Sep 04, 2006 (5:27 pm)
Love my new escalade, but each half of the truck from side view are two different colors. Front half darker than rear half. To pay extra for white diamond and get this paint job, not happy. Also right rear door is not flush with body and was adjusted by dealer, then by dealers body shop. Still not aligned. Anyone else have these problems or advice on what I should do?

The problem you described just happened to me this morning. Did you ever get yours fixed? I've had a number of electrical problems with my 2003 ESV, including several blown fuses, power window and heated mirror malfunctions all within the past year. I am currently working with cadillac.com to resolve. This is just the latest problem.

Glad to hear someone is happy with their Escalade. I just bought mine a few days ago. A 2003, I do have one questions for you, if I may ? It didn't come with an owners maual because we bought it privately. We are able to get the DVD player to play, I see it but we cannot hear it. Is your DVD player under the rear passenger seat ? And if so, how do you get audio and adjust the volume ????? My kids are watching with no sound.....please help. I know noone else in the are with one and can't ever get in touch with the previous owner.
Thank you for any help.

Hi everyone, Just purchased my 07 escalade 2 weeks ago. Haven't had any problems so far, however I'm curious to know if there is some way to play the in-dash DVD while driving? I heard there could be a wire of some sort that can be disconnected.
