At Serra Cadillac Of Traverse City, we’re proud to offer a full lineup of new and pre-owned Cadillac models to fit every budget and lifestyle, from sleek sedans to full-size SUVs. The best way to keep your Cadillac running in the best condition possible on the Manistee roads is to stick to your maintenance schedule and routinely bring your vehicle in for service. Your owner’s manual will have more specific details on how often you should bring your car in for things like oil changes, tire rotations, and battery replacements.

One of the questions our service team gets pretty frequently is: are Cadillacs expensive to repair? After all, Cadillacs are known for their premium builds and top-quality parts, so a lot of drivers worry that they may not be able to afford maintenance or repairs.

Well, worry no more—according to RepairPal, one of the foremost sources that rates vehicle reliability and maintenance costs, Cadillac vehicles cost around $783 a year to maintain, which is considered average across all vehicle brands and types. Cadillacs also enjoy strong reliability ratings, meaning you likely won’t be having to come in for unscheduled repairs very often! The service team at Serra Cadillac Of Traverse City has more details on the Cadillac maintenance cost and reliability in the guide below.

Average Cadillac Maintenance Cost

While the average Cadillac maintenance cost is $783 a year, those numbers vary greatly when it comes to individual models—some cost as little as $300 or so per year to maintain, while others can be well over $1,000. Now that we’ve gone over the overall Cadillac maintenance cost, let’s discuss how much you can expect to pay annually for specific vehicles in the Cadillac lineup. According to RepairPal and other third-party maintenance sources, here are the average annual maintenance costs for some of the most popular current Cadillac models in Cadillac:

  • Cadillac Escalade: $1,007 / year
  • Cadillac Escalade ESV: $1,127 / year
  • Cadillac XT4: $628 / year
  • Cadillac XT5: $305 / year
  • Cadillac CT4: $562 / year
  • Cadillac CT6: $614 / year

Cadillac Reliability Ratings

So, how often can you expect to be bringing your Cadillac into the dealership for non-routine maintenance? RepairPal estimates that Cadillac has a reliability rating of 3 out of 5 stars, which is considered above average compared to all car brands. This score is calculated through three factors: average maintenance cost, which we’ve already discussed, frequency of unscheduled repairs, and severity of those repairs. According to RepairPal, Cadillac drivers can expect to bring their vehicle into the Serra Cadillac Of Traverse City service center approximately 0.4 times a year for unscheduled maintenance, while just 17% of those trips will be for severe repairs.
