anybody ever been to EXPO cars on SW frwy?

went w/ may parents who were looking at buying a GX470 there..........were treated like dirt. were told no test ride till after w/ nego a price, and put a deposit down..........and this was by the sales mgr. WTF is that about.....we were looking at a $30k car not a murcielago.....

don't go there unless you like being treated badly. i'd imagine anybody buying a car would want to be treated better, even more so if your looking at buying a high dollar car.

ehhh....they have their quirks....sooner or later the headlights will haze, the black paint on the radio and other buttons will start to chip off, as wel as the leather on the seats and arm rests rubbing and cracking.

If the car is treated with utmost care it will take some time for most of that to happen, but usually its a for sure thing.

after certain miles, and how its taken care of, it will college deopists, and have a crappy take off idling, with lots of surging, and teh stealership runs some stuff through the intake to break down the carbon.

Not too many engine problems, but some things will go out commonly, like starters. and sometimes "check stability" will apear, and if it does, suspension problems are a HUGE CHASE to find, resulting in lots of parts being replaced, and a 50/50 of being fixed.


Some have shown to be reliable, others not so well. also depends on how well maintence is upkepts and how its treated, but there are cases of even that not helping.

Honestly I would like your mother to be happy with a car, I think she should look at a lexus

cadillac makes me mad because honestly they will have some batches of cars that are pure awesomeness, with NO problems. And then other ones make you wonder if they were having a whisky shot contest while putting the cars together.

if you really find a escalade she likes, look it over carefully, infact, I will see if I can get one of the mechs at my old dealership to give it a honest look over. Im not sure if that will come with a price, but I can see what I can do.

If they don't let you test drive, ask for the manager and tell them to kiss your and off to another dealer. I did that with my 03 Acura TLs. Sterling sucks while Gillman treated me with respect.
