Replacement of engine oil and filter using Dexos* synthetic engine oil and A/C Delco genuine engine oil filter (GM and most off-brand vehicle availability.
Why: Engine oil is the "life-blood" of your vehicle and requires periodic replacement, to ensure your engine is well lubricated to handle the rigors of use. Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil life monitoring system (OLM) which will display a percentage of oil life remaining. Cadillac recommends replacement at least once every 12 months or 12,000 km`s (unless otherwise notified by the OLM) which ensures your vehicle`s internally lubricated components are well maintained for long life.
A visual inspection of the vehicles mechanical components including lights, belts, hoses, brakes, tires, fluids, filters and more. Rotation of the tires according to Cadillac requirements is also included at no extra charge.
Why: Performing a visual inspection of your vehicle under Cadillac`s recommended interval of once every 12 months or 12,000 km`s ensures our technicians are one step ahead of wear of failure, which allows for "peace of mind" driving. Rotating tires allows for more even wear and longer life of your tires. Removing the wheels also provides opportunity to inspect the vehicle`s brakes at no additional charge. Service available for all makes and models.
Mechanical and electrical adjustment of your vehicles steering wheel and steering components, using state of the art equipment.
Why: Steering components "settle" or wear as they are used under normal operating conditions. Wear is compounded further by the change in road conditions throughout the year and seasons. Pot holes, curb hits, rough road surfaces, ice ruts and off-road type driving all cause added wear on your steering and suspension components. Your vehicle is equipped with parts that can be adjusted as their interface wears over time, allowing for longer life of said components, as well as tire wear. Having your alignment inspected and corrected once a year (per 30,000 km`s) ensures your vehicle is pointed in the right direction, for long life of steering, suspension and tires.
Electronic analysis of your vehicle`s wheel and tire assembly, using state of the art, industry leading equipment.
Why: Feel a vibration, shimmy or shake while your driving? Does it get worse the faster you drive? Does it come and go with changes in speed? Chances are your wheels are out of balance. Most commonly misunderstood as an alignment problem, your vibration could be solved by a simple balance correction.
Replacement of your vehicle`s engine air filter.
Why: Your engine requires a clean, unobstructed supple of fresh air in order to efficiently operate, turning a mixture of air and fuel into power and torque. Replacing your engine air filter when needed allows for better fuel economy, engine operating efficiency and ultimately better performance.
Replacement of your cabin (passenger compartment/pollen) air filter.
Why: Much like your furnace filter at home, your cabin air filter cleans the air entering your passenger compartment when you use your HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning). Removing dust, pollen, allergens and other airborne contaminants helps keep the cabin area cleaner, and provides passengers a better environment to breathe in, while traveling.
Replacement of front and rear (if applicable) windshield wiper blade assemblies.
Why: a clear view in either direction is the first and foremost requirement for safe operation of your vehicle. Over time, the rubber in your wiper blades deteriorates under environmental conditions. They can also be damaged is used on windshields that have been chipped or cracked, due to sharp glass edges. Replacing your windshield wipers help ensure your glass is clear of debris so you can see the road ahead.
Removal and replacement of your vehicle`s operatinb battery. No charge recycling of discarded part.
Why: Your vehicle has very complex electrical systems which require a tremendous amount of electrical power. Your vehicle`s battery is the main source of this power, and must endure heavy use every time you start and operate your vehicle. Extreme cold and hot ambient temperatures play a huge factor in your battery`s ability to provide reliable service. Having your battery checked and replaced as needed gives you peace of mind when it comes times to start your vehicle.
Comprehensive scan and analysis of onboard diagnostic trouble codes.
Why: Due to the complexity of your vehicle`s diagnostic system, your vehicle is designed to alert you of faults or failures with various warning lights and messages that appear in your driver information center. Because of the vast array of electrical diagnostic sensors, simple warnings are the best way to alert the operator of a potential problem occuring in your vehicle. Any warning light or message should be addressed as soon as possible, to ensure your vehicle is operating as designed.
Removal and refill of your vehicle`s manual or automatic transmission fluid (and filter if applicable).
Why: Arguably the most complex operating component in your vehicle, changing your transmission fluid (and filter if applicable) based on manufacturer recommended intervals helps keep your internal transmission components protected against premature wear and degradation, for reliable use. As the transmission transfers engine power into drive power, the transmission fluid is as important as engine oil, and should be serviced to ensure longevity and performance.
