    That sucks. I'm still a GM fan and unless it is a common thing I'd chaulk it up to just plain being unlucky.

    We had one guy who had a trans problem, but only one. Again, unlucky. But no Nissan people on the boards have had any engine problems except the guy who dumped a gallon of mud into his intake while stuck in a mud puddle.

    Last time I checked the Escalade and the Escalade ESV are built in Arlington, TX but the Escalade EXT is still built in Sialo, Mexico.

    Like he said, a lot of the parts are manufactured outside the US, obviously. The final assembly takes place in Arlington, Texas.


    HCVONE - How did you blow the engine in your new 07? I'm dieing to hear that story.

    Went to the garage Sunday morning Oct 15th and started the truck to go to a car show, a quarter second into starting it went KaBoom, they flatbedded the truck to the dealer the next day, called me to tell me that an intake valve broke and took out the piston, rod and bent the crank. They ordered a new crate engine that should be at the dealer today. I turned it over to my lawyer because with 887 miles on it I want a new truck, or I will be driving another brand. Not good at all. Never one hint of a problem before it blew up.

    Ahhh. My bad. Guess that's what I get for going on articles instead of to the guys who know. But with the number of illegals in TX, its close enough.

    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    Simply put, this thread is just on indication, but the "teething issues" severe or not, with early Armadas and QX56's seem to be a thing of the past. Most reviews seem to be glowing too, so aside from some subpar interior materials still, they're very legitimate competitors.

    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    The only "subpar" materials I know of are the interior dash pieces that aren't wood. Still don't get that as a gripe as I have an Armada that doesn't have wood at all by choice. But the rest of the rig is good materials. No rust, steel box frame, etc. I think the "subpar" materials comes from TOYota/Lexus fans who relish their wood. Personally, I don't like those interiors, which remind me of old Jags that break daily. BTW, the same chuckleheads say the same thing about the Caddie. From the review at www.edmunds.com under cons, "a few cheap plastics." Give me a break. Give credit where credit is due. The interior on the caddie is just plain nice and blows away the Lexus which looks very dated and has wacky gauges. How long are the reviewers going to carry the LX430 on a couple pieces of 1/8" thick wood vs. motor, capacity, towing, speed, etc.

    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    Well an Armada would certainly be equal to, say, our '04 Suburban as far as the innards are concerned, but I've played in a few each year at the auto show ('04, '05, '06), and a lot of the plastics and pieces still give off a cheap or flimsy aura. Love the look and space of the truck, but that's just me, and it really jumped out--not in the same caliber as other Nissans either. And they're not up to the latest GM's or Ford's in that regard either, but as said before, the '08s will fix the issue (just as was done with the revised '05+ Altimas).

    Armada wins "Total Value" award. A few people have gripped about the plastics. As was said, these will change next year. Nissan put the money in the drivetrain, which is where I'd rather have it anyway. However, they also kept the price down. Now we won this. Nice.

    So I'm confused. Isn't the QX56 faster than the Escalade? 0-60 and 1/4 mile?
    Or are the 2007's faster now.
    I still think that these huge SUV's doing sub 7 sec 0-60 and 15 sec 1/4 mile is awesome. These 2 seem to be way ahead of all other SUV's out there.

    QX is 15.60 according to this source...

    http://autos.yahoo.com/2006_infiniti...d-performance/

    The Caddy posted high 14's in one of the reviews, and mostly 15.0 times in others.
