Cadillac’s are known across the nation as being comfortable luxury cars. That doesn’t mean that you have to buy them new, however. Cadillac’s certified preowned policies make it much easier to find a used Cadillac that’s in fantastic working condition, and that still looks like it’s just rolled off the factory floor.

What exactly are the benefits of the certified pre-owned Cadillac in Michigan?

In order for a car to qualify for a certified pre-owned policy, it must meet certain requirements. This protects you and ensures that you get a driving experience worthy of the Cadillac name.

The Esteemed 172-Point Inspection

Cadillac stands behind their cars. Whether they’ve just been driven off the showroom floor or if they’ve been driven for a handful of years already.

Their thorough inspection means that you can have peace of mind about buying a used car. You won’t have to worry that something will break a week after you purchase the car.

Cadillac inspects everything under the hood and the entire underside of the car. Next, they perform all of the scheduled maintenance tasks and perform a road test to check for vibrations or sounds. All filters, hoses, clamps, belts, and blades are checked for quality and are often replaced. The battery and battery cables are also inspected as are all of the fluid levels.

During the road test, the vehicle is checked to be sure it meets Cadillac’s standards. They look and listen for problems with the vehicles idle quality, sound quality, acceleration, and transmission. All aspects of how the car feels are inspected, even down to the wind noise. If anything seems out of order, it is looked into and fixed before it qualifies as a certified pre-owned vehicle.

They also check the vehicle’s accident history to be sure there isn’t any hidden damage which could cause problems for you in the future.


Warranties are one of the major concerns for those looking for used cars. It used to be that a warranty was reserved for brand new cars. That made buying a brand new car a much more attractive option. The industry has changed quite a bit in the last few years, however, and the buyer experience is becoming much more focused than it used to be.

The pre-owned Cadillac warranty is among one of the best in the industry. It extends the new vehicle bumper-to-bumper warranty up to six years or 70,000 miles.

What exactly is covered by this warranty?

The powertrain, corrosion of the sheet metal in body panels (including rust), and emission control systems. Essentially, any defects throughout the car are covered. Everything other than routine maintenance is handled by Cadillac.

As you can see, there are a lot of reasons to consider buying a pre-owned Cadillac.
