2023 XT6 Reliability

So far, the 2023 XT6 has been recalled twice, for an illegible tire label and for a faulty transmission that may result in a loss of drive power. The 2022 model was recalled three times, for a possible fuel-tank leak, rear suspension failure, and a missing brake-reservoir cap.

In terms of coverage, Cadillac provides a basic bumper-to-bumper warranty for the first four years or 50,000 miles, with the powertrain covered for six years or 70,000 miles - considerably more than its German rivals that limit powertrain coverage to the same four-year/50,000-mile period. One complimentary scheduled maintenance visit for the XT6 is also included.
