Great Styling and Performance. 1st run glitches.
March 9, 2019
The styling and finishes inside and out are fantastic. The Cue system on the 15 isn't my cup of tea, as it's tedious to navigate radio stations and takes your eyes off the road.
Performance is great at 39k miles. I'm still rolling the factory rubber and have some life left on them. Other than oil changes, no other regular maintenance has been required yet.
We have had 2 warranty issues. The panels behind the doors on both the driver and passenger sides came loose and were causing wind noise at highway speeds. Also, the car refused to go into gear one day. It was the transmission solenoid. That required a tow to the dealership.
I got a loaner 16 Escalade as a loaner and noticed that it seems to drive a bit better. There was a transmission change in the 16s.
Pros: Styling. Amenities. Comfort. Towing capability. Finishes.
Cons: 1st year run issues.
