So I have been in the market for a 03-06 Escalade. I came across this one on CL. I talked to the guy and he got it from GA in an auction. He said it had front end damage and the frame wasn't touched. He replaced and painted the front bumper and hood. The radiator was also replaced. The lowest he would go was $8,500. Should I keep looking or consider it further? I figure the mileage is good for the year/make/model. I'm not in a super hurry, but I'm getting spring fever.:stirpot:

Keep looking. From the crappy cell phone pic looks like the front bumper, lights and grill are way off on fitment. I could only imagine what's underneath.

Cars do get damaged but make sure the work was quality if the pic looks off find something else.

I agree it looks like someone is wanting to dump the problems on someone else RUN and keep looking

Check the Los Angeles Craigslist. Plenty of 2nd gens to be had. Great deals too

I have seen several 02 models, but I want the double din and console...

That price is way too high for a salvage. Maybe at $5k. $9k with over 100k miles is something I see all day on clean titles.
