Cadillacs require more maintenance than most cars
Cadillac is a popular luxury car brand with decent reliability, but you can expect it to require a little more maintenance than most cars.
Severe maintenance visits: RepairPal notes that, on average, Cadillacs visit the repair shop as often as the average vehicle for unscheduled maintenance—about 0.4 times per year. However, roughly 17% of those visits are considered severe—which is significantly higher than average for all automotive brands.
Cadillac maintenance costs
On average, a Cadillac costs about $783 per year for routine maintenance.
Keep in mind: Average costs for maintenance may vary depending on the model that you drive. Used cars will also become more expensive to maintain than new cars as they begin to require more unexpected maintenance and repairs.
