This may be a dumb question but here goes ...... If one were to purchase a used Cadillac still under warranty from a non GM dealer, can it be taken to a Cadillac dealer to be "certified" and a six year 100,000 mile warranty be purchased.

It would probably just be easier to get the GMPP Major Guard.

All certification is, is the dealer giving the car a basic safety and roadworthiness inspection, then paying a preset amount for an extended warranty.

As mentioned above, buying a GMPP is the same thing, if not better.

I think CPO coverage is better with 6 yr. (from new), 100K mile bumper-to-bumper new-car style warranty coverage with no deductable. CPO coverage is also cheaper than GMPP for a similar term. However, given the possible price difference between a private party car + GMPP versus a CPO car from a dealer, it may be cheaper overall to go with the private party car + GMPP.

You have helped me out several times, and I don't like disagreeing with you, but I disagree. CPO Cadillac warrantee is better than GMPP. I had two vehicles at the same time, one covered by each. GMPP has deductibles, no loaner car service, does not cover things like bulbs/cosmetic-trim issues/fading radio buttons/etc.

Cant be done... Simply the cadillac dealer can only add the certified warranty at point of sale of the vehicle.. You can not get it at any other time.
