Cadillac Escalade ESV Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Cadillac Escalade ESV

Hi
Most of the time I face the problem in reading cd or DVD and shows disk error after showing disk check in progress for about 2 minutes - the same CD works some times if I eject and loan many times. Can any one provide a solution. Nothing wrong with the CD/DVD as it works in other CD players without any issue.

Sudden catastrophic engine failure at 42,000 miles. Vehicle was towed in. Broken valve spring led to bent valve and $ 3,000.00 repair. Not covered under warranty, of course, due to age of vehicle. I expect more from GM's top-of-the-line. I won't buy another.

I had my Cadillac into the dealership for its regular maintenance and two weeks later it started running rough. We got it back into the dealer ship and they inform us that the head has to be rebuilt. I would like to know if this is something that should have shown up during the regular maintena...

The ignition switch actuator can bind causing the ignition switch to stick in the "start" position. If this were to occur the actuator can unexpectedly release, cause the ignition switch to snap back into the "Accessory" position. This would cause the engine to turn off with an associated loss of brake and steering power assist. If these conditions were to lead to a crash the airbags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will inspect and replace the ignition lock housing as necessary to correct this concern.

All late model vehicles are equipped with a "Shift interlock" system that prevents vehicles with and automatic transmission from being shifted out of the Park position under certain conditions. Some of these vehicles are being recalled because they may have been assembled with a broken park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear. Failure of these components can allow the shifter to be moved out of the Park position with the ignition key removed or in the off position. This can cause the vehicle to roll away unexpectedly increasing the risk of injury or a crash. Dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary.

 

 

The intermediate steering shaft attaching bolts may not have been tightened to the proper specification. This could allow the steering shaft to separate. The driver could experience a loss of steering ability, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and ensure the intermediate steering shaft bolts are tightened to the proper specification. This recall is expected to begin on July 13, 2011. The General Motors recall number is 11191.

We have lived in Mexico ever since buying our ESV in July 2006. 95% of the gasoline burned has been PEMEX, Mexican gas. Almost of the service performed has been at a local Mexican garage. At 30,000 miles I started using "Mobile 1" for engine oil. The ESV has 128,000 miles. What a great vehicle. Most expensive repair was the replacing of the rear shocks. We not had any out of the ordinary...
