    Painted??? The center concole is solid color throughout (color molded). If paint is peeling, sounds like something fishy....

    I have seen that happen on a few escalades, the center console is solid but it has a layer of (kind of a rubberized dye) over the top. Thats there to make it look like its not just a big hunk of plastic im assuming. Take it to your dealer it is under warranty, they will have it redyed or replaced.

    Yeah I noticed the same thing on my 2003 Escalade. It just started happening not too long ago. I will check with the dealer to see what they say about replacing it.

    Sounds like something that should be covered under warranty.

    Mine is doing it also; It was kinda embarassing when some random girl told me my center console was peeling. My friend's Denali has a more sturdy center leather console and it makes no noise when applying weight(That noise drives me nutz) but the rest of his car just doesn't compare to the Caddy's looks.

    Peeling isn't normal. My '02 has shown the signs that it wants to start peeling on the right side of the center console. It was actually caused by the service tech when it was in for repair.
