Even as the economy continues to improve, many Columbia car shoppers are looking to find used cars that suit their needs. The Cadillac CTS is no exception, as a wide variety of models are available for both the first generation (which ran from model year 2003 to 2007) and the second generation (which began production for the 2008 model year).
Columbia drivers are wise to ask any prospective seller for a comprehensive vehicle history report, such as one from CARFAX, as well as inspecting any used Cadillac CTS they may be considering to get a full picture of its current condition. While there are many used CTS cars in Columbia that are in impeccable condition, less reputable sellers may try to let some issues unbefitting a Cadillac slide past.
A popular option when looking for a used Cadillac CTS in Columbia SC is to look at a Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are hand-selected vehicles that are still within the four-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, and have been researched though both Cadillac’s internal systems and an independent vehicle history report to ensure that it has not been subjected to severe use or damage from, for example, an accident where the vehicle was totaled or used in livery service. From there, Cadillac certified technicians examine every vehicle with a standardized 117-point vehicle inspection to ensure a wide variety of points, from the thickness of the brake pads to the hinges of the doors are in excellent working condition. From there, any deficiencies are reconditioned to bring back a like-new appearance to the CTS.
All Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned CTS models are backed with many of the ownership privileges that come with the purchase of a brand new Cadillac CTS in Columbia SC, including the balance of the new-vehicle limited warranty. When that warranty expires, the Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty takes effect for 6 years or 100,000 miles from the vehicle’s original in-service date (whichever comes first) to provide many more years of peace of mind. In addition, customers receive 24-hour roadside assistance, courtesy transportation should your Cadillac require warranty service, and a three-month trial of OnStar Directions and Connections service and XM Satellite Radio on vehicles so equipped. Whether you’re looking for a Cadillac CTS or any other used Cadillac in Columbia SC, Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned models are the cream of the crop.
