Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Program


The latest Cadillac certified pre-owned (CPO) program took effect with certified units sold on or after March 1, 2017. The warranty adds another 1 year of coverage with no mileage cap on top of the factory 4-year/50,000-mile warranty. The program is still fully transferable to another private party and there is no deductible for each covered repair. However, the Cadillac CPO fails to provide complimentary maintenance (during the warranty period) for such operations as oil changes, tire rotation, engine air filter replacement, and cabin air filter replacement.

What We Like

No mileage cap; no deductible; fully transferable

What We Don’t

Bumper-to-bumper limited warranty is for only 1 year; CPO warranty doesn’t include any sort of complimentary scheduled maintenance

Program Specifics

If you’re thinking about buying a used luxury car, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned Cadillac. Eligible Cadillac vehicles cannot be more than 4 years old or have more than 50,000 accumulated miles and must receive a 172-point inspection before achieving Cadillac pre-owned status. The manufacturer-backed warranty covers most major components for up to 5 years with unlimited miles, adding peace of mind. However, it’s always a good idea to check with your Cadillac dealer to see exactly what is and isn’t covered by the CPO warranty.

Cadillac’s latest certified pre-owned plan remains fully transferable should you decide to sell your CPO Cadillac to another driver before the warranty expires. It also comes standard with a 3-month free trial subscription to SiriusXM radio, along with a 3-month subscription to GM’s useful OnStar system, which brings automatic crash response, OnStar vehicle diagnostics, turn-by-turn directions, and the OnStar Remote Link mobile app. There’s also 24-hour roadside assistance, along with a free vehicle history report. Cadillac will also provide certified pre-owned customers with a loaner vehicle or rental-car reimbursement when getting warrantied repairs.

We think Cadillac’s certified pre-owned warranty is fairly competitive with those of other luxury makes.  Cadillac certified makes sense for those who want to move up to a luxury car (maybe for the first time) but are worried about the higher-than-average cost of ownership generally associated with luxury cars.
