    I know-right, I had the same 100K done on mine a while back and he charged me about the same and changed out my water pump as well! It's GOOD to have a Caddy mechanic to hook you up!

    Not sure if I suggested this to you already but I think I did… Go to your local Cadillac dealership, talk to a salesman and give him $20 and ask him if he knows any of his mechanics to do work on the side that he would recommend… That is your best bet...good luck!

    Definitely do not! Talk to the service manager… That is how he makes his living he is not going to offer you a technician where money doesn't go in his pocket, stick with the sales department

    That dealership might not do that...More than likely, you approaching him like that, he thought he was being set up by his boss or someone. It doesn't hurt to go talk to a sales guy and ask if they can recommend a tech that works on older escalades outside of the dealership.
