1989 (sold) & 1998 Deville, 2004 Escalade, 2009 ESV platinum
Hello, new member here. I have a 2004 escalade, awd, standard wheel base 6.0. I thought these were reliable?!?! I picked it up at 93k miles, last spetember, and it was in great shape. 7k trouble free miles. I roll over 100 and bam- almost everything goes. So far I have replaced: The entire radio, the slip yoke, the wiper motor, then service ride control came on, then a random misfire the same day, then the traction control threw a code, then the blinkers went out, then misfire came back again, then DBW throttle body failed, then sway bar ends cracked, then brake calipers siezed, then power mirror went out, then ANOTHER P0300 random misfire code, then the dashboard went out, then EVAP canister, then alternator, then heated seat, then cigarette power outlet, then idler pully, then water pump, then steering pump, and finally, a rear window. THIS HAS ALL BEEN SUDDEN AND IN THE LAST THREE THOUSAND MILES. I am at 103k, I baby this truck. I don't tow, I ALWAYS keep it under 2k rpm when accelerating, I chang SYNTHETIC HIGH MILEAGE OIL EVERY 2K MILES!!!!! please. Someone give me hope that this will end soon. All I hear is how thesee cars are reliable. What is wrong with mine. I knew the PO and they were very good to this car. Does it really get better? Or should I dump it? Only problem is I have $7k into it already... so if things keep going wrong I don't know if I should sell it and take a huge loss or hold onto it, because I keep HOPING that this repair will be the last. But I am wrong everytime. I hate this car now.
