Cadillac Escalade Problems
It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.
The steering wheel position sensor may fail, resulting in the service stability message being displayed.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault. The warranty has been extended on some of these units to 7 years or 70,000 miles.

Cadillac Escalade Reviews
I am disappointed in the 2008 Cadillac Escalade. The warranty ran out & immediately the problems began. Front passenger seat heating & a/c unit stopped working. Then the entire air conditioning unit for the suv dissolved & had to be replaced. Then 2 of the the 4 doors stopped working(locking & unlocking), actuaries we later found out. Now the running boards are not operating as quickly as they previously did, so I expect them to stop also. It seems like the entire model was not up to "CADILLAC" standards or what it should have been...will not be looking at Cadillacs again!
I just purchase this 2006 Cadillac Escalade one month agao. I am not happy this the steering. I took it to the shop and asked the mechanic to look at the front end thinking it might be the steering box, tie rod end,ball joint, something such as that, because the vehicle wants to wonder off the road or into the traffic. I have to fight it to get it to stay in the middle of the road and don't even think about trying to pass anyone, that is scary. The first mechanic said everything looks good he could not find anything wrong and everything was tight. After a short debate he suggested to get a second mechanic to look at it. Then that mechanic said I had a tire he thought might be cupping, he found I had a cracked brake pad, and my rotors was below spec. so I purchase new rotors and brake pads.Plus a front alignment rotated tires.Still did not fix the problem. I am wondering if the size tires I have on this vehicle might be the problem. Has anyone had the problem? I have 305/50R20 on this vehicle. I love them, but do I need to go smaller or narrower? Please help? I am hoping this is not a money pit.

I can not believe all the problems I have had with my wife's cadillac escalade. First the passenger side door handle is loose, the the battery needs to be replaced every two years, the moon roof's motor is broken, and now my BCM is out. This was a 64,999 dollar vehicle. It is only 5 years old and has less than 78,000 miles. I can not believe it and will never ever buy another cadillac again.
