WARRANTY FAQ

WHAT ABOUT COURTESY TRANSPORTATION?
Courtesy Transportation is also included on all Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned vehicles for the duration of the vehicle Warranty. Whenever warranty repairs are required, several transportation options and/or reimbursement of certain transportation expenses are available for your convenience at participating dealers/retailers.

IS MY VEHICLE COVERED FROM RUST, TOO?
Cadillac vehicles are designed and built to resist corrosion. All body and sheet metal components are warranted against rust-through corrosion for 6 years, unlimited mileage. Application of additional rust-inhibiting materials is neither necessary nor required under the Sheet Metal Coverage. Cadillac makes no recommendations concerning the usefulness or value of such products. Application of after-manufacture rust-proofing products may create an environment that reduces the corrosion resistance built into your vehicle. Repairs to correct damage caused by such applications are not covered under your CPO or New Vehicle Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty. See your Cadillac dealer for terms of this limited warranty.

DO I HAVE TO GO TO THE CADILLAC DEALER WHERE I PURCHASED MY VEHICLE TO HAVE THIS TYPE OF WORK PERFORMED?
While most customers prefer to have this type of work performed at their selling dealer, it can be performed at any Cadillac dealership.

CAN I TAKE MY CADILLAC TO ANY GM DEALERSHIP FOR WARRANTY REPAIRS?
These repairs must be performed by an Authorized Cadillac dealer, except in an emergency situation when a covered part or a Cadillac dealer is not reasonably available to the vehicle owner. It’s in your best interest to take your Cadillac vehicle to a Cadillac dealer for all repairs since they are the most knowledgeable about the requirements of your vehicle.
