If a situation or event occurs where you are significantly inconvenienced, an authorized GMC dealer can make the warranty repairs. However, in the event the dealer is not able to perform the repair due to the special tool and training requirements, contact the Customer Assistance Offices 0 30.

Things to Know About New Vehicle Limited Warranty

Warranty Repairs – Component Exchanges

In the interest of customer satisfaction, Cadillac may offer exchange services on some vehicle components. This service is intended to reduce the amount of time your vehicle is not available for use due to repairs. Components used in exchange are service replacement parts that may be new, remanufactured, or refurbished.

Remanufactured parts meet Cadillac-approved service part requirements and are made from previously used components
in a process that involves disassembly, inspection, cleaning, update of software Andre placement of parts as appropriate, testing and reassembly.
Refurbished parts meet Cadillac-approved service part requirements and are previously used parts that are inspected, cleaned,  tested, and repackaged.
All exchange components used meet Cadillac standards and are warranted the same as new components. Examples of the types of components that might be serviced in this fashion include: engine and transmission assemblies, instrument cluster assemblies, radios, compact disc players, batteries, and powertrain control modules

Warranty Repairs – Recycled

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)guidelines and Cadillac support the capture, purification, and reuse of automotive air conditioning refrigerant gases and engine coolant. As a result, any repairs Cadillac may make to your vehicle may involve the installation of purified reclaimed refrigerant and coolant.

Tire Service

Any authorized Cadillac or tire dealer for your brand of tires can assist you with tire service. If, after contacting one of these dealers, you need further assistance or you have questions, contact the Cadillac Customer Assistance Center. The toll-free telephone numbers are listed under Customer Assistance Offices.

Aftermarket Engine Performance Enhancement Products and Modifications

Some aftermarket engine performance products and modifications promise a way to increase the horsepower and torque levels of your vehicle’s powertrain. You should be aware that these products may have detrimental effects on the performance and life of the engine, exhaust emission system, transmission, and drivetrain. Engine power enhancement products may enable the engine to operate at horsepower and
torque levels that could damage, create failure, or reduce the life of the engine, engine emission system, transmission, and drivetrain. Damage, failure, or reduced life of the engine, transmission, emission system, drivetrain, or other vehicle components caused by aftermarket engine performance enhancement products or modifications may not be covered under your vehicle warranty.

Paint, Trim, and Appearance Items

Defects in paint, trim, upholstery, or other appearance items are normally corrected during new vehicle preparation. If you find any paint or appearance concerns,  dealer as soon as possible. Your Owner’s Manual has instructions regarding the care of these items.

Vehicle Operation and Care

Considering the investment you have made in your Cadillac, we know you will want to operate and maintain it properly. We urge you to follow the maintenance instructions in your Owner’s Manual. If you have questions on how to keep your vehicle in good working condition, see your Cadillac dealer, the place many customers choose to have their maintenance work done. You can rely on your Cadillac dealer to use the proper parts and repair practices.

Maintenance and warranty Service

Retain receipts covering the performance of regular maintenance. Receipts can be very important if a question arises as to whether a malfunction is caused by lack of or a defect in material or workmanship. A “Maintenance Record” is provided in the maintenance schedule section of the Owner’s Manual for recording services performed. The servicing dealer can provide a copy of any warranty repairs for your records.

Chemical Paint Spotting

Some weather and atmospheric conditions can create a chemical fallout. Airborne pollutants can fall upon and adhere to painted surfaces on your vehicle. This damage can take two forms: blotchy, ring-shaped discolorations, and/or smaller regular dark spots etched into the paint
surface. Although no defect in the factory-applied paint causes this, Cadillac will repair, at no charge to the owner, the painted surfaces of new vehicles damaged by this fallout condition within 12 months or 12,000 miles of purchase, whichever comes first.

Warranty Coverage – Extensions

Time Extensions: The New Vehicle Limited Warranty will be extended one day for each day beyond the first 24-hour period in which your vehicle is at an authorized dealer facility for warranty service. You may be asked to show the repair orders to verify the period of time the warranty is to be extended. Your extension rights may vary depending on state law.
Mileage Extensions: Prior to delivery, some mileage is put on your vehicle during testing at the assembly plant, during shipping, and while at the dealer facility. The dealer records this mileage on the first page of this warranty booklet at delivery. For eligible vehicles, this mileage will be added to the mileage limits of the warranty ensuring that you receive the full benefit of the coverage. Mileage extension eligibility.

  • Applies only to new vehicles held exclusively in the new vehicle inventory.
