Cadillac Reliability

You won't find Cadillac reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Cadillac truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Cadillac reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Cadillac was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Cadillac has been recently.

2006 4dr Sedan 320-horsepower 4.6L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The car has very few problems. The Northstar engine is built like a trouble-free tank. The few problems it may have in the future, all cars have them, so its not a deal maker or breaker. see full Cadillac review

2008 4dr SUV 255-horsepower 3.6L V6

Consumer Reports indicates that reliability for this model is questionable. Afraid to take the plunge for more money and less features than the Lexus. see full Cadillac review

2007 4dr SUV 320-horsepower 4.6L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Hands down the reliability of the SRX is terrible. I've often wondered what I got myself into buying it. Parts are expensive and typical of GM, nearly impossible to replace yourself. Wheel bearing gone? Well you're replacing the enture hub, not just the bearing. see full Cadillac review
2007 4dr Sedan 320-horsepower 4.6L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Too many trips to the dealer. Love the look and ride. Just wish it was put together better. For $62k, I expected a lot better. see full Cadillac review
