    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Does anyone know if it's possible to replace the 06 HVAC controls with the digital set used in 07? My dials are starting to skip and I'd like to use something better looking and more functional, preferably digital.

    My '93 Seville was a California car for the first 170,000 miles of its life. ( I got it at 160k) 3.5 years ago I moved to North West Indiana near Chicago, in the dead of winter. Car had to be parked outside at the time. When it got very cold overnight (less than 20deg) and I went to drive it in...

    I have a 97 eldorado etc, the temperature gauge goes to the red from time to time no matter the driving conditions. About 3 wks ago I had the coolant flushed. Also the a/c runs on low even though it's off. The car has done this maybe twice, I turned the a/c on then off and it solved the...

    Looking to upgrade my 09's exhaust. While I'm at it "thinking" adding headers and modified (sufficient enough to get me thru inspection) cats too. There's a lower pulley upgrade in the future. :yup: Knowing the Corsa's have low drone technology, having used a set on my 03 C5 Coupe, at idle I...

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I keep seeing "for as much as this car costs, it should work!" Well, in that spirit, for as much as the 2nd gen CTS costs, this forum should, theoretically, be populated by mature adults. It hasn't seemed that way in the past, and while it was better for a while, it is starting to not seem that...
