I'm disappointed that my newer model Prius only gets 44-46 MPG, where the old one always got 50+.
The target was under 150K on the clock, under 20 years old, and under $5K so I could buy it cash...It was %20 or more under all limits. The only Escalades I found (I would have preferred one) were ~double the milage or well over budget...Also, I feel better scuffing up a burban with a load of electronic junque than I do treating a caddy or Lincoln the same.

Also my burban came with the only options an Escalade has (aside from general looks) that I would want to pay for: Leather interior and Heated seats.

I just wonder how much more the glorified burban called the Caddy costs new? I always think "a fool and their money".

Or turned it into a super fly ride with tinted windows, glitter paint and 22" chrome rims with spinners. Know what I'm sayin' homie?

They were quite a pretty penny more when new, and tend to hold their value much better than their chevy/gmc counterparts... pretty much solely because of their popularity with a certain demographic.

I will say, I quite like the Escalades more than their counterparts, at least when they've been well taken care of, and not butchered with 22s and tints and aftermarket radios. Very comfy and luxurious.

Also, I once walked into a friend's body shop, and found him putting Escalade body trim onto a Tahoe. I asked him what he was doing. He said "I'm making a Escahoe."
