Our Take on the 2016 Cadillac ELR

Our Take

The Cadillac ELR is a range-extended luxury coupe that debuted as a 2014 model. It had the same plug-in battery-electric system as the 2011-2015 Chevrolet Volt.  Sales were so slow, however, that Cadillac did not produce a 2015 version. In response, Cadillac cut the base price for 2016 by $... Read Full Report

Hoping this car will be my all-time favorite!

by coffee4matt from Laguna Beach, CA on April 9, 2017

I've owned 29 cars since I was 14 years old, most bought new, and my 2014 Chevy Volt was one of my top 3 favorites, probably #2 after my 1997 BMW 528i. I put 48K miles on my Volt in 2.5 years, and I o... Read Full Review

Learn More About Warranties

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
