We’re not saying we started something here, but it seems that since our post on free maintenance programs, more automakers are adding them.
Last week, Lincoln started offering a three-year free maintenance program as a summer incentive. Today, Cadillac announced that it will begin a full-time free maintenance program for all 2011 models. The plan covers all required maintenance for the first four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.
That includes oil changes, tire rotations, replacing engine and cabin air filters and the more significant/expensive multipoint inspections.
The first vehicles included in the program, called Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance, will be the 2011 CTS lineup, including the new CTS coupe.
