    There are a lot of variables to consider here man. First off, you need to see, and drive it for yourself. does it run good? hows the tranny? is everything stock? whats been replaced? do you want the overhead dvd? What size wheels? do all the windows work? the seats, does it have navigation? I could just sit here, and go on. I would say bottom Price I have seen on a good 05 Lade with that mileage is around 11,000 with no major problems, but most will be asking for more like 14,000-15,000.

    Re: Looking to Buy an 2005 Escalade ESV

    Thanks for the reply,

    From the pictures they sent me, at one time there was an after market DVD but has been taken out and there is a long cut on the ceiling where the after market DVD was. The transmission was replace at about 85K, I have not ask if the ESV has navigation or not yet. Still waiting on what price they want to sell for for me to make a decision to go take a look or not. It is about 300 miles away from my house after all.

    So with that said,if the bottom price is less than $10K should be alright price provided that everythings work mechanically and no major blemish...

    Does the 05 Escalade ESV navigation has the factory backup camera?

    If the asking price is less than 10k, you cant go wrong, as long as there are no major problems. A price like that leaves some wiggle room, for small repairs, replacement overhead DVD, tires etc. while still staying in the good price range. If you are willing to travel, there are a good bit of great deals on escalades. If it has factory Nav. then it should have factory Backup camera.

    Thank you all for the response. So, definitely no backup for 05 ESV with Navigation.
