Why Your Cadillac Model Needs Regular Oil Changes

Cadillac Certified Oil Change | Beloit, WI

When you drive a top-of-the-line model — like a Cadillac — you want to maintain its value and performance. Regular oil changes are an essential part of keeping your vehicle in tip-top condition. Here’s a look at how this easily overlooked service benefits your vehicle.

Benefits of regular oil changes.

Oil changes keep your vehicle’s engine running smoothly. Clean oil prevents the engine from overheating by reducing friction. On top of that, fresh oil ensures that your car delivers optimal performance and efficiency. There’s also a flip side to this — neglecting oil changes can lead to severe consequences for your vehicle. It can even lead to costly and permanent damage, like a seized or overheated engine.

How often to get an oil change.

While it’s always a good idea to consult your vehicle owner’s manual for a recommended service interval, you should also monitor your car’s oil regularly. Experts recommend checking your vehicle’s oil at least monthly. Note the oil level and quality. If it looks dark or gritty, it’s time for an oil change. You can also be notified when your car needs maintenance with the MyCadillac mobile app. It even lets you schedule a service visit at Bud Weiser Motors when it is time for an oil change.

If you want the best care for your Cadillac, bring it to the experts at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin.

2022 Cadillac XT6 Earns IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating

2022 Cadillac XT6 | Beloit, WI

The Cadillac XT6 is renowned for its elegant styling, luxurious features, and capable performance. This premium three-row SUV also possesses a stellar reputation for safety — in fact, it was recently rated as a 2022 TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

TOP SAFETY PICK+ is the highest rating handed out by IIHS, and it’s not easy to achieve. To start with, TSP+ vehicles are required to pass six tough collision tests to demonstrate that they can protect passengers in front collisions, side collisions, rollovers, and other dangerous crash situations.

TSP+ vehicles also need to offer available systems to prevent or mitigate frontal crashes with pedestrians and other vehicles. These systems must provide “advanced” or “superior” protection in crash testing. Finally, TSP+ vehicles have to be equipped with “acceptable” or “good” headlights at every trim level.

Not surprisingly, the XT6 excelled in meeting all these requirements. But this super SUV doesn’t stop once it’s covered the safety basics. It also comes standard with advanced technologies like Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Front and Rear Park Assist. On higher trims, you can even add cutting-edge features like Automatic Parking Assist, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Pedestrian Alert, and an HD Surround Vision camera system.
