09 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid
I have a 2009 Hybrid Escalade just bought about 2 months ago. It had a lot of miles 98,xxx when I bought it, and I knew I had a little mileage before the hybrid components warranty ran out (8yr, 100,000). Since then, I have only driven it 1000 miles and have seen a handful of problems:
1.). Under 14 miles per gallon city
2.). Engine idle at stops rather than battery power
3.). Snapping noise (almost sounds electrical) any time going from battery use to hybrid usually around 1-2 gear both accelerating and decelerating.
4.). Engine power rather than battery power in low gears (70/30)
5.). Exhaust or fan sound either while acceleration or remote start (dealership said it was oil pressure)
6.). Stalled twice engine light on
I have taken it back to the dealership twice and will be bringing it back again soon. 1st time they explain to me that everything look fine, but it was in safe mode because someone jumped it (?????). That was why the mileage was down (14 city/21 hwy). After driving another 400 miles I began to see lower battery usage and the same city miles (14 city/21 hwy). 2nd visit to the dealership and they were a little stumped and told me they have to wait for their engineer. I have already filled a case number with Cadillac and just want a solution.
