    Pricing on 2002 Escalade

    Hi everyone. I'm am considering joining the Escalade family and would appreciate anyone's advice on a 2002 Escalade with 90,000 miles in South Florida from a dealer. The manager is a good friend of mine and can will give it to me for $10K plus tax. Here is a link to their listing. The car fax is clean, the inside and outside looks great and would love any feedback as to what I should be looking out for mechanically.
    KBB puts the retail value at around $15k with the options and 22" Rims.

    Thanks in advance.

    That's a pretty good deal I think. Things look for check for compressor noise when you start the vehicle. Listen for a moan or whine while driving. I personally would bounce all for corners to check for good shocks. Those things are pretty expensive.

    Obviously turn everything on and of top make sure It works A/C especially.rear heat and a.c. overall just listen for abnormal noises while test driving, braking.

    If it looks good, sounds good, feels good it probably is good.

    I love my truck, just wish I would have known then what I do now... good luck.

    Re: Pricing on 2002 Escalade

    All of the above advice is definitely on point. Here is a few more things you can check out:

    1. Seat covers are heavily worn. The leather can be replaced and it's a fairly simple DIY project. Check out www.theseatshop.com for prices.

    2. In the pictures, the rear wiper isn't parked properly. I'd check it out during your test drive.

    3. Test out the URPA (Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist) system. When you're backing up, you should get some tones and see LED lighting on the top of the right D pillar, indicating the distance between the truck and an object.

    4. In addition to listening for compressor operation upon starting the truck, look at the rear shocks. You'll see the black rubber "bags" on each shock that the air compressor fills to keep the truck level under heavy loads. Take a look at the condition of the rubber, look for cracking or obvious tears/holes. Those are not cheap to replace.

    5. Tires in the pictures look like they have alot of tread left on them. What about the spare? Do you get the stock rims with the truck as well?

    6. Test out the power folding mirrors.

    7. In fact, play with everything, make notes of things that don't work properly.

    8. As said before, of course feel for any abnormalities when test driving. Observe how to the truck shifts, it should be nice and smooth.

    10k is a reasonable price. If you don't find any mechanical issues I'd take it. I absolutely love my '02. I'm at 119k, running strong and she's always a head turner.

    Just my two cents. Good luck to you!
