Thieves love late-model Cadillac Escalades enough for them to rank as the most likely-to-be stolen vehicle in America. Professionals can take one in 14 seconds. Why? Some experts say General Motors skimped on a few key parts.
The Escalade has a lot to offer a professional thief. Top-shelf wheels, in-demand air bag and dash parts, and other bits that can be easily stripped and sold, like the one that the Rev. Jesse Jackson used during a visit to Detroit a couple months back.
