Our 2002 Cadi Escalade gave up on May 1st 2015, after over 225,000 miles and many years of faithful service. On May 6th, we decided to downsize and purchased a 2014 Chevy Captiva crossover SUV. Enjoying most of the features of the Escalade only in a smaller version. We are especially enjoying the great mileage and using regular gas again. So far-so good.
