Servicing for my Cadillac

Cadillacs are traditionally associated with the USA but they are also popular with collectors and car enthusiasts in the UK. The most popular models in the UK include the CT6 Sedan, the Escalade (SUV), and the CTS-V Sedan. The CT6 Sedan is impeccably engineered and beautifully crafted, giving dynamic performance and a superb driving experience. It has individual climate control, comfort massaging seats and a high-tech sound system. Safety is given priority with radar, camera and ultrasonic sensors, a night-vision system, and Pedestrian Collision Mitigation technology. The Escalade is an imposing SUV. Its elegant interior and bold exterior are combined with powerful performance, functionality and technology. It has a 6.2L V8 engine and smooth 8-speed transmission. The CTS-V Sedan is the most powerful street-legal model in Cadillac's history. Its 6.2L V8 engine delivers 649 hp and delivers acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds.

Why should I take my Cadillac for a service?

There are six good reasons to invest the money and time to have your Cadillac serviced:

  1. It maintains the warranty: In order to protect the manufacturer's warranty on a newer vehicle, services must be carried out at, or before, the stipulated intervals.

  2. It keeps the engine healthy: Having regularly services where oil and filters are changed will prolong your engine's lifespan.

  3. It keeps you safe: Regular services allow for any safety concerns to be identified and resolved. It is vital that your Cadillac's brakes, suspension and exhaust are in good-working order.

  4. Tyres: During a service, your tyres will be checked to ensure they are in good condition and have an acceptable tread depth.

  5. It protects your car's value: Keeping your Cadillac in good order protects its value. When the time comes to sell, it should be worth more if it has a full service history from a reputable service centre such as Protyre.

  6. It's a false economy not to get it serviced regularly: Servicing should save you money in the long-run. A car engine that hasn’t been regularly serviced will consume more fuel. Minor issues can become major, expensive headaches, if not dealt with.

How often should I get my Cadillac serviced?

There is some debate about this. Some experts suggest service intervals every 5,000 miles or every six months, others indicate every 7,500 miles. The owner's manual should be your guide here in ensuring that you maintain a full service history.

What happens at a service?

Whilst the specific items will vary based upon model and service interval, a full service should encompass thorough checks on brakes, tyres, suspension, engine, safety features, oil, and much more.
