Ownership Review of the 2016 Cadillac Escalade ESV Luxury 6.2L V8 FlexFuel

Car Displayed: 2016 Cadillac Escalade ESV Luxury 6.2L V8 FlexFuel

The 2016 Cadillac Escalade ESV Luxury is somewhat difficult to maintain. All of the headlights will require the wheel well lining to be disengaged in order to access them, while some will also require panel, bumper, and housing removals, too. A large panel and sway bar must be removed in order to access the engine air filter housing, which won’t allow for reliable filter changes. Reaching the spare tire could be a problem if it becomes rusted to the undercarriage and won’t lower from underneath the vehicle.

However, the 2016 Cadillac Escalade ESV Luxury has its upsides. Connecting your phone via Bluetooth isn’t a problem thanks to the clear instructions on the touchscreen menu. The unobstructed access to the brake fluid reservoir will allow you to reliably monitor the fluid levels. Both the oil drain plug and the oil filter are accessible without any panel or parts removals.
