Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

Drivers who are shopping around for the perfect used Cadillac may want to check out cars under their certified pre-owned program. Many manufacturers have a certified pre-owned (CPO) program, and each one is set up differently. Read on to learn about the specifics of the Cadillac CPO program.

Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned cars are always under six years old, have less than 60,000 miles, and come complete with the same six year/70,000 miles Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty that new Cadillac vehicles are covered by.

Inspection

In order to ensure that all Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are safe to drive, Cadillac CPO vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection that includes the following procedures:

  • Under-hood inspection
  • Under-vehicle inspection
  • Exterior and interior appearance inspection
  • Schedule maintenance
  • Road test
  • Vehicle history report

Warranty

Cadillac CPO vehicles come with the same warranty that brand new Cadillac vehicles are covered by, which covers repairs bumper-to-bumper for six years or 70,000 miles, whichever comes first, and requires no deductible. The warranty also includes certain benefits including:

  • A complete vehicle history report including the service record.

  • A 24-hour roadside assistance program that offers emergency services and security services.

  • Reimbursement for rental or courtesy transportation services in the event that your vehicle requires warranty repairs.

  • A three-month free trial of OnStar Automatic Crash Response, OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, OnStar Turn-by-Turn Directions, and the OnStar RemoteLink Mobile App.

  • A trial subscription to Sirius XM All Access satellite radio.

For exact details on reimbursement amounts or roadside assistance specifics, see an authorized Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned dealer.

Pricing

Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Cadillac vehicle instead of a used vehicle can make a difference in the price. The bottom line will usually be around 11% higher than a regular “used” vehicle.

For example, at the time of writing this article in April 2016, a used 2012 Cadillac Escalade has a Kelley Blue Book value of $37,401; the same vehicle in the Cadillac CPO program is priced around $41,615.

Compare Cadillac to Other Certified Pre-Owned Car Programs

Whether you decide to go with a CPO car, it's always wise to have an independent certified mechanic inspect any used car before buying it. Certified Pre-Owned does not mean the car is in perfect condition, and any used car can come with serious issues that aren't apparent to an untrained eye. If you're in the market to buy a used car, schedule a pre-purchase inspection for total peace of mind.
