Why choose a certified Cadillac service center for repairs and maintenance?

Cadillac vehicles are precision engineered to provide a superior driving experience. To ensure that your Cadillac continues to provide that level of performance and quality, you'll want to work with a service center that has Cadillac-certified staff and facilities. Your local auto shop may not have the expertise or equipment that's needed to properly maintain your Cadillac.

What are the benefits of OEM Cadillac parts?

OEM Cadillac parts are designed to exact factory specifications and constructed to Cadillac durability standards. That means you can expect to get components that fit your vehicle perfectly and perform as intended. OEM Cadillac parts are typically a better buy than off-brand and aftermarket parts, as they offer superior build quality and keep your warranty intact.

How often should I change the oil in my Cadillac?

Cadillac has specific oil change interval recommendations for each vehicle that it has produced. You can find this information for your vehicle in its owner's manual or by consulting your Cadillac technician. It's best to follow these recommended intervals for your specific model. However, most owners can expect to go 5,000-6,000 miles between oil changes.

What kinds of services are involved in routine maintenance?

Routine maintenance is comprised largely or preventative services that address predictable wear and tear to specific components and systems. Manufacturers create routine maintenance instructions for all of their specific models to account for this predictable wear and tear. Common routine maintenance services include oil changes, wheel alignments, battery replacement, brake service, and more. Our staff can help you keep track of your vehicle's routine maintenance needs.

Why does my car need tire rotations?

Tire rotations are important for the longevity of your tire set as a whole. Each tire on your vehicle will be exposed to different wear patterns based on positioning. Rotating the set to different positions exposes tires to different wear patterns and evens out the set. This practice can help all four last longer and prevent road noise due to uneven wearing. Most shops typically recommend a tire rotation service with every other oil change.

What are the signs that my brakes need repairs?

Maintaining your brakes is crucial to the safety of you and other drivers near Farmington Hill and Canton. If you notice symptoms like grinding, squeaking, vibrations, or lack of braking responsiveness, it's time to get your brakes inspected. You may need to have your brake pads, rotors, or brake fluid taken care of by Cadillac technicians.
