2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum in White Diamond over tan leather in very good shape. 121k mi, 4th owner, VA, FL and TX truck, clean title in-hand, no wrecks or questionable history. Maintenance records stack from current ownership since Jan. 2012, includes a new rear air suspension (Arnott air compressor, Bilstein air shocks), oil and filter changes whenever the oil life computer said so (Mobil1, BOSCH), air filter, serpentine belt, TPMS sensor, new fog lamp assemblies, Stabilitrac body sensor assembly, OEM wheel centercaps, and AC Delco battery in the last several months. Only needs regular unleaded fuel! Recent state inspection. Ice cold AC, hot heat- seats and cupholders too! Handy adjustable pedals. Has a custom integrated backup camera system I carefully installed into the factory navigation system a couple years ago that is engaged with a switch on the dash while in Reverse and works great- IR camera mounted on trailer hitch (has towing package). Bose speakers with factory sub sounds nice- factory navigation system works great and has XM built-in and ready. Nav disc included (ver. 4.1). Factory Panasonic dual-screen DVD system works well and was only used on long trips- have comfortably taken this to Florida twice for vacation. Front windows tinted to match. Factory front plate filler and rear cargo roll were also added. All options, driven daily by a doctor, maintained weekly by an engineer. Hand washed and waxed in our care, was just professionally detailed and shampooed inside and is now largely being parked until sale. Has lots of life left but only selling to get my family into a newer ESV with lower mileage. Goodyear Eagle tires still good and have about 40% life remaining- I was planning to replace them next year in another 7-10k mi. Has a few hail damage dents on the hood and roof- a PDR (paintless dent removal) estimate is included for local work or reference if you wish to repair. A few marks and stains inside but nothing major for this age- photos show big headliner smudges but it’s the camera, very clean headliner. All original floormats. Not much of a ‘broken’ list- the backup sensors just long-ding and no longer work, CD changer is dead, the driver’s rear door lock intermittently works automatically but is easily locked manually (mechanism freezing up- lock itself and motor are fine), one of the TPMS sensors has gone bad but can be done at the next tire interval, and the 'Service Ride Control' message still pops up on startup for some reason even though I went through and replaced the entire system (very annoying for an engineer- but it airs up quietly and levels perfectly). Everything else works. Still cleans up very well, has never been tackily modified, and is mistaken for new by the untrained eye. Non-smoker. Very powerful, reliable, and capable powertrain with this 6.0L V8 and permanent AWD system (back when it was standard) that really separates it from a Suburban- no leaks. The pleats on the door cards, air cooled and heated everything, handsome wheels, and interior trim in the Platinum package further set this apart from the average ‘old’ Escalade. Comes with two working keyfobs, 3 keys, and all the manuals. This solid ESV is ready for a local sale, or I'll pick you up at the airport of your choice for your drive even back to Maine. PPI available at a shop of your choice within a reasonable radius of the North Dallas area for serious candidates. Large image gallery available! Competitively priced at $14,500, two grand under Blue Book. Not in a hurry to sell. PayPal $500 deposit upon agreed sale, with balance as a wire transfer or bank-drafted check with a scan of your DL and insurance. Will provide a bill of sale and a temporary plate and can arrange shipping through a trusted transport broker I’ve used if needed (factor $1200 to either coast).
