Cadillac Escalade ESV Problems

Broken Valve spring

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.

cd reading error

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.

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...
