Hello All,
I received this quote from my dealership after one of my lifters failed, was wondering if anyone has had any luck with cadillac helping out with the bill, i know theres a class action lawsuit but who knows when and if thatll pass.

2015 escalade 90k miles,


heres the quote

The engine needs to be taken apart to determine exact damage.

$3501.00+tax for 1 bank of lifters. That would be if the camshaft is not damaged.

$4836.00+tax for lifters on both banks of the engine. That would be if camshaft is not damaged.

$8202.00+tax if cam shaft is damaged. That price includes lifters.

I paid $5100 for a engine replacement for my 2008 Escalade last year with new plugs, wires and headers. The shop did a excellent job. I don’t know if the 2015 and up engine is more but it was a 6.2.

hey xx.. just shop around ok, good mom and pops can do this for cheaper - and you build a relationship.....the dealer usually does not give a rats' puttie about you , they want to sell you a new car ( in my opinion)

I am guessing they are the same specs. The place was called destroyer auto in riverside ca ask for Robert and tell him he did the work for Stephan from chino hills with the 2008 Escalade back in June 2021 and has a little girl named Avery.
