1. Why are some 2007 base prices for this vehicle $58990, and others I see more recently $59640 (both excluding destination).

2. I have read every single thread about this wind noise---is realligning the door a definite fix now? I do not want to buy a 2007 model with this problem if there is not a definitive fix. I figure you guys would know more than calling cadillac.

3. Will the 2008 models have this wind noise already fixed?

4. On the 2008 models, there is the "ultra v8 collection package"...with a small note saying you can substitute in the 18" wheels for the 22"---but there is no mention of how much money that will save off the package...anyone know?

Thank you very much.

On the Cadillac web site the base price is $60,540 for an 07' ESV, if they were built before any price increases throughtout the year there would be a price difference on the sticker. The 07's door problem is NOT fixed, I have two 07' Escalade's and have very little wind noise from either one, but I have been in some that are very bad. I hope it's fixed by 08' but have yet to read anything to that. :)

so, it must be an early build 2007---and probably has wind noise. the dealer wont tell me where the car is so i can go see it of course.

i think i might wait for the 2008 to come out and just hope that there is no wind noise in the 08 models.
