I am on the market for one right now if I can sell my 02 Sport Trac. What appealed to you? What do you love? What do you hate? How much did you pay, and how many miles? :)

I just sold my brothers 2002 Escalade for him on eBay. It went for a steal IMO because of the low mileage. Here is a link to the auction:

Overall I really liked it. I like the 2002 because of the unique dash and control placement. :thumbsup:

I love my 06... In my opinion it has the best body style of all the escalades however you will have others that will disagree.. i got white diamond and love the color.. i have wanted one since they came out and since 2006 was the last year they were going to have this body style so i grabbed it... my parents both have 02's and they love them.. i got compliments everywhere i go and with all the acceossories out they are one of the easiest truck to hook up... there is no downfall to these trucks... here is a picture of my truck..

I agree with CaddyKidd... The body style is the nicest & these are really easy to hook up. I bought an 02 strictly because of the price. I was looking at an 05 for $36,000 when I came across my 02 which I picked up for $23,000. The miles were good, it had the factory bumper to bumper warranty up to 100,000 miles & it already had $8,000 worth of wheels on it! So I saved the $13,000.

I got it because;
1. It's such a nice looking truck!!
2. Big and safe.
3. Best price out there for a used luxury SUV
4. Easy and cheap to find parts
5. Simple enough to work on(it's still a GM)
6. Did I mention, it's SUCH a nice looking truck!!!

I had 6 Suburban's and wanted a truck that was a little nicer, at the time I just could not see paying the amount they wanted to get a Range Rover, so in late 02' I got my first Escalade, it was an 03'. Since that time I have purchased a 06' Range Rover HSE and two 07' Escalade's, and the Escalade's cost less and in my opinion and with my ownership the Escalade are a better truck for my needs. :)

Sounds like the one I just bought, 2002, with only 7000 miles on it and 8k dollars worth of wheels and other upgrades like Grill and such. It was owned by an 85 year old man believe it or not and he hardly drove it, cause he had a bently and mercedes to drive as well.

He passed away God Rest His Soul.

1. The look of the Escalade is awesome
2. I wanted the biggest & baddest looking SUV that I could find & afford
3. Tired of driving boring Japanese cars
4. The big engine, the raw power it generates
5. The most important reason...my wife wanted one

I bought my 2005 Escalade with Nav in Sept. 2006 with 11,000 miles for $35K

Have to say i agree with many of the comments above:
- bad-a** lookin' truck
- power and handling
- luxury
- safety
- size and towing capacity
