AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT ALTERATIONS AND WARRANTIES

Installations or alterations to the original equipment vehicle (or chassis) as distributed by General Motors are not covered by the General Motors New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The special body company, assembler, equipment installer, or upfitter is solely responsible for warranties on the body or equipment and any alterations (or any effect of the alterations) to any of the parts, components, systems, or assemblies installed by GM. General Motors is not responsible for the safety or quality of design features, materials, or workmanship of any alterations by such suppliers.

The warranty is fully transferable and there are no fees and no deductibles. The Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation programs are also standard during the length of the warranty. For more details, please visit your Cadillac dealer.


HOW IS THE BUMPER-TO-BUMPER WARRANTY AFFECTED BY THE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY?

The bumper-to-bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty on new Cadillac cars and light-duty trucks remains in effect for 4-years or 50,000-miles1, whichever comes first. For more details, please visit your Cadillac dealer.

WHY HAS GM ELECTED TO MAKE THIS CHANGE?
This move is intended to provide you with a premium level of values, confidence, and protection. As a result, GM is elevating your total vehicle ownership experience with one of the most comprehensive consumer confidence packages in the industry.

WHAT ABOUT COURTESY TRANSPORTATION?
Courtesy Transportation is also included for 6-years or 70,000-miles1 for 2013 models and 5-years/100,000-miles1 for 2012 and older Cadillac vehicles.

WHAT DOES THE BUMPER-TO-BUMPER WARRANTY COVER?
The bumper-to-bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty covers vehicles registered in the U.S. and Canada from the date the vehicle is first delivered until it reaches 4-years or 50,000-miles1, whichever comes first. It covers the vehicle from bumper to bumper on any vehicle defect related to materials or workmanship. For further details, look in the Warranty book under “What Is Covered” and “What Is Not Covered.”

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 for 4-years or 50,000-miles1, whichever comes first. Any sheetmetal that actually rusts through, causing an actual hole in the sheetmetal, is covered for up to 6 years, unlimited miles. 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 rustproofing products may create an environment which reduces the corrosion resistance built into your vehicle. Repairs to correct damage caused by such applications are not covered under your New Vehicle Limited Warranty. See your Cadillac dealer for terms of this limited warranty.

DO I HAVE TO GO 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 particulars of your vehicle.
