Is it normal to have 3 in three months (the last three)? Does everything look ok?

I would value your opinions on this vehicle. Maybe someone with skills could run the VIN?

I don't believe this is a concern. I have seen this type of bs on CarFax before, and I wouldn't let it get in my way. Go to your nearest Cadillac dealer and ask them to run the vehicle in their records for you. That should be your first step.

When I bought my 2013 CTS-V I traded in a 2010 G37, that I had since new. I pulled the carfax on the G37 when the dealer put it up for sale after I traded it in. There were a couple of things that were inaccurate on it. I usually do my own periodic service, but got lazy once and took the G37 to a Nissan dealer for an oil change. They wanted to do a lot of unnecessary stuff. I told them just give me an oil change. When I went to the service desk and asked to see what they wrote up, they had added other stuff. I asked for my keys and went home and did it myself. The car fax had down that I had a full service done at the Nissan dealer, even though nothing was done. When I bought the G37 I wanted a particular color and options. That dealer had one that matched my needs shipped in from another dealer. It had about 7 miles on the odometer. The carfax had the G37 down as a 2 owner. I was the only owner.

I agree with tinman. Ask your local Cadillac service department to check the service records for you. When I requested this from my local dealer they wouldn't print the records (they claimed privacy issues), but they did read it to me from their screen.

There is also forum member who sometimes gets these records, maybe he can help you out.

This is very worthwhile for two reasons. First it will check that the warranty information is correct. There have been cases of warranties being voided when non-stock tunes have been installed. Second it will tell you if any major problems have been repaired under warranty.

You could also call the respective DMVs and ask them if they know what that means. (Of course, that means dealing with DMV, which is notoriously bureaucratic and non-helpful in most states, so it might be hard to find someone useful to talk to, but...) My guess is that there are a variety of different things that get logged by Carfax as a "REGISTRATION EVENT/RENEWAL" because there's no other category to put them in.
