Don't know why they added the AFM. I had the AFM in my 2007 Silverado LTZ Vortec Max and man it sucked! Truck would vibrate all over. And they are giving the 5.3L engines many problems. And you barely get an increase in your MPGs.

I have AFM in my hybrid and I have had no problems at all. In fact, you do not notice any difference at all.

A salesman at a Caddy dealership told me he had to order more '09s because the 2010 wouldn't hit showrooms until January 2010. He said it would be a true 2010 model. I'm not sure this is 100% correct though.

Looks like I'm not going to get a 2010 .. I hate AFM :cookoo:

My dealer told me they will be out late between Nov and Jan, told my dealership to place my order as soon as they can put the 2010's in.

I am sure the Preditor could take care of that problem, or maybe program it to not kick in until 70 mph

Does anyone know if the new 2010 Cad Escalade will be iPod / iPhone freindly? Does it include BT? I currently own a 2007 Cad Escalade and it does not include anything that connect my iPhone to the vehicle. I do have OnStar and also the GM phone service but it's a pain and cost more than my regular cell service.
Thanks

It will with bluetooth. My 09 has it and it works great with my iphone. As far as hooking into the audio for sound or video, you would have to use the USB or audio/video inputs. Not sure how the 2010 usb interface will be. Im assuming just like the other usb gm radios.

Other option is one of lockpick ipod/iphone devices will work.

If you look at the 5th new item for 10' it's a USB connection, the Ipods and Iphone use a USB connection. :)

Where did you see the wiper info, the reason I asked after reading this I called the dealership and they called the factory, they told me their factory contact said that was news to them, and ask where I heard that info.

Is the third row REALLY leather currently? I thought it was vinyl. :hmm:

I believe only the center of the seat is leather on the third row, at least it seems to be on my 07', didn't look at the 08' or 09', I have WAY too many Caddy's

I moved it here.. If the link in the first post was about the Escalade, it would have stayed there. It's about Cadillac's entire 2010 lineup - and should be getting input from all our members and not just the Escalade crowd. It appears to be an Escalade discussion because only Escalade owners see the post being it's in the Escalade forum. If it's really important, I'll chop it up and place the Escalade posts in the Escalade section and keep the rest here...

Already done, you could have had it in both places instead of taking it out of the Escalade section
