    Thinking of buying an Escalade...

    After wanting one since they restyled them for the 2002 model year, I think I'm going to look for an Escalade to purchase. However, it will probably be a damaged one for relatively cheap and I'll make a project out of it and fix her up like new again. Does anyone know of anywhere I might find a theft recovery/somewhat damaged/flood etc. 02+ Escalade that I could rebuild? It's been a little while since I've had something to work on Thanks in advance for any help!

    There are a lot of electronics in these new SUV's, be careful on how much you spend because the little things will nickle and dime you to death

    Yea its a great site, however its really a teaser for the PAY membership site WWW.AUTOSOURCE.WS which is dedicated to these types of vehicles. Its only 10 bucks for a lifetime membership though and gives you access to 100's of vehicles per month plus a somewhat light description of what could be wrong with it. Youll notice alot of the readytofix.com ones simply say does not start which is a little odd on the theft recoveries especially. Im sure most of the trouble is electronically related on most of the vehicles.

    One of my favorites is this 2003 Land Rover Range Rover flood with 11k miles for get this.... 24900.00. Thats a 65,000.00 truck still, and when you consider they will make a profit on it at 24900, they literally stole that thing, but then thats what a salvage title can do to a cars value.
