CRACK ON FRONT DASH APPEARED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. WAS TOLD IT WAS A COMMON PROBLEM BUT NO RECALL. TODAY I NOW HAVE THREE CRACKS AND AN ESTIMATE OF ALMOST $400 TO REPLACE THE PART. IN A QUICK LOOK ONLINE THIS PROBLEM APPEARS TO BE VERY COMMON. I KNOW THERE IS A PUSH TO HAVE GM REPLACE THIS PART AT THEIR EXPENSE AS IT APPEARS TO BE DEFECTIVE. SOMETHING I AGREE WITH AND AM IN FAVOR OF.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

3/12/2015 - WYLIE, OH
DRIVER STOPPED VEHICLE PREPARING TO PARK, PLACED IT IN "PARK" AND PROCEEDED TO TURN IGNITION INTO "OFF" POSITION. THE KEY WAS FIRMLY LOCKED IN THE "RUN" POSITION AND WOULD NOT TURN TO "OFF" OR ANY OTHER POSITION. AFTER TRYING TO TURN KEY FOR SEVERAL MINUTES, DRIVER CALLED GM/SEWELL - CADILLAC SERVICE DEPARTMENT FOR INSTRUCTION TO TURN THE VEHICLE OFF. THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT COULD NOT PROVIDE ANY SOLUTIONS THAT WORKED OVER THE PHONE. THE VEHICLE HAD TO BE SHUT OFF AT THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT. AFTER THE INITIAL INCIDENT THERE WERE A NUMBER OF OTHER INCIDENTS INCLUDING KEY HARD TO TURN IN IGNITION, NUMEROUS OCCASIONS OF POWER LOSS THROUGHOUT SYSTEMS IN VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN TAKEN THE SEWELL CADILLAC MANY TIMES FOR THESE SAFETY ISSUES. A NUMBER OF CALLS HAVE BEEN MADE TO GM ALSO ABOUT THE VEHICLE AND ITS DEFECTIVE NATURE. I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT THIS VEHICLE SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE IGNITION RECALLED VEHICLES.

SEATS

2/13/2015 - PARK HILLS, MO
HEATED SEATS NOT WORKING. AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH ONLINE I FOUND OUT THAT ESCALADE'S ARE PRONE TO MELTED WIRE CONNECTIONS ON THE CCSM UNDER THE PASSENGER SEAT. MINE HAS THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM AS DESCRIBED BY MANY OTHER ESCALADE OWNER'S. WHY HAS THIS NOT BEEN RECALLED? THIS COULD POSE A VERY SERIOUS INTERIOR FIRE RISK.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

2/9/2015 - ALAMOGORDO, NM
DRIVING ON THE I10, SEMIS ALL AROUND, DRIVING ABOUT 65 MPH. MY DAUGHTER AND HER FRIEND IN THE VEHICLE. ALL OF THE SUDDEN IT FELT LIKE I HIT A WALL. ALL POWER WENT OUT, LOST ALL SPEED, WHEN THE POWER FLICKERED BACK ON, LIGHTS ONLY NO SPEED, ALL THE DASHBOARD WAS LITE UP, EVERYTHING WAS MAKING A SOUND, THE VEHICLE KEPT GOING FROM D -DRIVE TO P-PARK, THE RPM WERE MAXED- YET NO SPEED. AT 51K I NOTICED THE VEHICLE SHIFTING HARD AND TOOK IT IN TO A CADILLAC DEALERSHIP, THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS LATER, IT HAS CONTINUED TO DO THE SAME THING, JUST TWO DAYS AGO 2-7-15, IT IS STILL DOING THE SAME THING. MANY TIMES I HAVE BEEN IN DANGER OF LOOSING MY LIFE, AM NOT EXAGGERATING. MY VEHICLE HAS ONLY BEEN TOUCHED BY THE DEALERSHIP FOR ALL OF ITS SERVICES AND REPAIR. THIS VEHICLE IS EXTREMELY UNSAFE FOR DRIVING. I HAVE A BOOK OF ALL MY SERVICE RECORD DOCUMENTING THE SAME ISSUE OVER, AND OVER...........................................AGAIN. ACCORDING TO MY RESEARCH THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEM, AND CADILLAC JUST SITS BACK, PROBABLY WAITING FOR LOSS OF LIVES.
