2023 XT5 Reliability

The 2023 Cadillac XT5 received 82 out of a possible 100 points overall in the JD Power survey, and an excellent 86 for Quality & Reliability. Caddy's XT5 was recalled three times in 2022, for a faulty transmission that may cause the car to roll away while in Park, for a fuel tank that may not seal properly in the event of a rollover, and for a rear suspension part that may fail. The transmission problem carries over to the 2023 XT5 and is joined by an additional recall - for an illegible tire-information label.

Each new 2023 Cadillac XT5 SUV sold in the USA gets a 48-month/50,000-mile limited warranty, a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty, and one complimentary scheduled maintenance visit.
