Cadillac is a luxury vehicle division of General Motors. It has been a competitor in the automotive space since the early 1900s. The striking frame and sleek exterior of its coupes, sedans, and SUVs are well-revered among vehicle owners. If you’re in the market for a Cadillac, MSRPs range from $37,000 to $73,000 depending on model, year, and customization of your car.
Cadillacs (2013 or newer) come with a 6-year/70,000-mile limited powertrain warranty; while older models are given a 5-year/100,000-mile warranty to cover engine, transmission, or drive system defects. Prior to leaving the lot, make sure you’ve fully reviewed all paperwork. When your vehicle needs repair, you want to be sure of what is covered under your Cadillac warranty and the exact time it expires.
Average Repair Costs for Cadillac Vehicles
It pays to be protected for vehicle repair beyond initial Cadillac warranties. While the original warranty gives you coverage for the first few years, your vehicle most likely will last longer than 5 or 6 years. Due to the advanced technologies and design improvements of vehicles, owners are maintaining their cars for much longer periods of time.
This translates to a real need for extended coverage for your vehicle. Depending on the severity of your repair, it can cause you hundreds, possibly thousands, of dollars. Even if you have emergency savings for these types of scenarios, it can still prove to be a hit to your finances. In order to prevent a lapse in coverage, a vehicle service contract (f/k/a an extended warranty) is an affordable solution for those who want to remain protected.

Choosing a Vehicle Service Plan
Not sure where to get started? We offer three base plans, Platinum Protection, Comprehensive Protection, and Powertrain Plus, which can be customized to fit your preferences. While every plan offers comprehensive protection, one may be a better value for the age and mileage of your vehicle. For example, our Powertrain Plus protection is a great option for high mileage vehicles and covers components such as your engine, water pump, starter, and transmission. As an alternative, a Comprehensive Protection policy is better suited for older vehicles.
Review a sample policy to get an idea of the kind of coverage offered. And, take time to review benefits of a US Car Protection policy, which include complimentary towing, a rental car while you wait for the completion of your vehicle repairs, and 24-hour roadside assistance.
