Default 2007 Cadillac Escalade imporoved?

Well, I have had a world of trouble with my 2005 Escalade. I bought it new and have had nothing but problems. Here is my laundry list:

1. CD player locks up everytime the car is turned off. When you get back in the car the CD player is frozen on the track when it was turned off. The only remedy is to switch sources and then go back to CD. Then the player restarts the track and plays.
2. Navigation doesnt work and never has. When an address is plugged in is says the navigation DVD is faulty. Not sure how, as I have never taken it out of the player. I am fighting with Cadillac customer service and the dealer to fix this.
3. Sunroof stopped working. The motor came loose and had to be fixed.
4. Steering column had to be replaced. Steering started making popping sounds that could be felt in the steering wheels when turning or going over bumps.
5. Turn signal lights and hazard lights started comming on when I pressed the brake. This was a short in the wiring.
6. Left mirror makes grinding/popping sound when attempted to fold in.


I think that is it... for some reason I feel like I left something out, but I could be wrong.. Anyway, this thing has been very dissapointing. I dont want to get a new one if they are just as problematic.

However, i really like the styling of the 2007 models and was wondering if anybody has any experience with them and knows if they made much better? It looks like they have completely redesigned them.

Also, is the key still the crappy little plastic key with teh seperate cheezy plastic door remote like the older ones or have the actually caught up here and provided something a little more classy?

I think you should contact your car dealer for your problems.
