Use Your Tax Returns on These 3 Maintenance Areas

By Alex Winans | Posted in Dealer Information on Friday, March 20th, 2015 at 1:16 PM

Tax season is here, San Antonio. If you have yet to file, make sure to get it done! And for all of you receiving returns this year (lucky you!), you might want to consider pampering your Cadillac to make sure that it keeps providing that luxurious ride for years to come. The average national figure for tax returns this year are between $2,500 and $3,000—more than enough dough to treat your Cadillac right and still be able to pocket plenty of bills afterwards. Cavender Cadillac has compiled a list of 3 major areas of maintenance that you should invest in to keep your Cadillac running the way it’s supposed to. We’ve focused on maintenance areas that should be replaced every 2 years, so for all you owners of any 2013 or 2012 models, you may find this info particularly helpful!

Take a look at our service specials here!




Okay, this one is obvious, but it bears repeating. Brakes are your life line in your Cadillac, so it’s important to make sure they are working properly and have been replaced! Failing brakes is even in the same ballpark as something like a failed battery—one is an inconvenience, and the other is potentially fatal. So put a little love into your CTS, ATS, or whichever Cadillac you own. Replace your brake pads, and your car will keep you safe! If you aren’t sure when to replace your brakes, the average time frame is once every 2 years or every 24K miles.

Fuel Filter



This item is particularly important, but is often overlooked in even the most thorough Cadillac owner. The fuel filter is working whenever your engine is turning, filtrating out impurities and preventing clogs in the injector system. Not unlike your Brita filter at home, the fuel filter must be replaced over time (again, once every 2 years). This replacement is quite an involved process, so we’d recommend letting our maintenance team get the job done right for you.

Spark Plugs

maintenance, Cavender Cadillac, San Antonio, Spark Plugs, Texas, Helotes


You can’t start a fire without a spark, and you can’t start your car without a spark plug. These little firecrackers allow the combustion to take place in each fuel cylinder. If your mileage has been suffering or your engine is running poorly, this could possibly be the culprit. Try to swap these out every 30K-80K miles.

Any of these maintenance areas apply to you, San Antonio? We’re happy to assist you with keeping your Cadillac running in tip top shape. Spending a little bit of your tax return on these important maintenance areas will save you money in the long run, and you’ll likely have some of your tax money left over to spend on whatever your heart desires! Schedule your appointment today!

German Autos Got Nothin’ on the ATS-V & CTS-V

By Alex Winans | Posted in Dealer Information on Tuesday, March 10th, 2015 at 12:08 PM

As of right now, we are in the middle of the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, which is quite a drive from those of us in San Antonio, Boerne, and San Marcos. Even though we couldn’t book our flights in time, Cadillac is still representing the US in style with a brilliant, fun-loving marketing idea.

Before stopping at the Geneva Auto Show, Cadillac decided it’d be fun to take a bit of a road trip and cruise throughout Germany, and while they were in the country Cadillac chose to stick its tongue (err..grille?) out at the major German car makers. A little dash of light-hearted schoolyard teasing has made for quite an entertaining twitter feed.


Using the all-new CTS and ATS models for these clever photo-ops, Cadillac’s first stop was at BMW’s M Division, where the black CTS-V is seen parked beside the M3 accompanied with the witty comment: “Hey, @BMW #M, sorry we missed you this morning. Don’t worry, we left you some donuts. #SIAG #VSeries #DareGreatly.”

After the BMW M Division, the CTS-V headed out to Audi Sport, posed adjacent to the neon sign, and playfully “complimented” the company on their impressive building by captioning the photo “Wow, that sign is impressive. You’ve really got the ‘Cadillac’ of buildings here @Audi_Sport. See you at #SIAG! Now that’s funny.


Check out our inventory of Cadillac CTS-Vs!

 Finally the ATS-V coupe’s opportunity to have a go at a German auto maker, it headed out to Mercedes-Benz AMG to greet the AMG GT. The ATS-V juxtaposed with the image of the AMG GT really highlighted the jaw-dropping features of the Cadillac coupe, and the caption cheekily reads “Guten Tag, @ MercedesAMG. Stopped by to practice our German, but it looks like you’ve left for #SIAG. See you there!”

Not only is this great fun and a particularly ingenious branding strategy on Cadillac’s part, it also reveals the innovative and clever aspect to the company that has been a staple of Cadillac for many years. The 2015 ATS-V and CT-S V are perfect ambassadors for Cadillac, showcasing ingenuity, originality, and a healthy dose of fun.

Cadillac ATS-V.R to Make its Racing Debut

By Alex Winans | Posted in Dealer Information on Sunday, March 1st, 2015 at 6:18 PM

Check this out, all you F1 Racing fans in San Antonio, New Braunfels, and Helotes—The Cadillac ATS-V.R will soon be making its debut in the Pirelli World Challenge Series at the Circuit of the America’s in Austin.

This Cadillac hot rod is a racing edition of the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe pictured above and due on our lot later in the calendar year. Our Cavender Cadillac team is just as excited about the ATS-V.R debut as we are about the Cadillac ATS-V. The ATS-V.R meets F1A GT3 criteria, giving it the certification it needs to enter into over 30 various GT series across the globe. Capitalizing on over a decade of V-Series engineering experience and employing a game-changing twin turbocharged V6 LF4 engine, this car has everything under the hood that it needs to scorch the competition come race day.

Read Our Recent Blog About the Upcoming 2016 Cadillac ATS-V.

The Cadillac ATS-R was designed and created on a 24 month developmental period and stayed true to the blistering performance capabilities of the ATS-V Coupe. The team also employed multiple computer tests, analyzed its findings, and used research from the CTS-V.R in order to build the ATS-V.R. The car hit the speedway for the first time in September 2014 and has been continually updated and tested since then.

This Cadillac racer has been shown the same love, attention, and diligence that all models on our lot have received. Built by a company that is innovating not only when it comes to luxury, but also in unmitigated performance, the ATS-V.R is a sign of great things to come.

Come on, competitors. Catch us if you can.

Visit our dealership or contact us to learn more about the new Cadillac ATS-V.R Racer. And come test drive our 2016 ATS-V when it hits our lot in late spring. We’ll be more than happy to talk nuts and bolts about what makes these new vehicles so spectacular.



2016 Cadillac Debuts Power at the Chicago Auto Show | Cavender Cadillac San Antonio, TX

By Alex Winans | Posted in Dealer Information on Tuesday, February 24th, 2015 at 1:37 AM

Power was the name of the game for Cadillac this year at the 2015 Chicago auto show. The company made quite a splash when it debuted the all-new 2016 Cadillac ATS-V and the 2016 CTS-V. The V series models are crafted to achieve new heights in performance and cater to the thrill of an electrifying ride. We are truly ecstatic about these two beautiful, “suped up” models, and we will be rolling out the red carpet for them in San Antonio as soon as they arrive on our lot later on this year.

Cadillac ATS-V

The epicenter of the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is a 3.6L Twin Turbo engine that boasts a 0 to 60 speed of under four seconds, with top speeds of over 185 MPH. Although you may not be hitting that top speed on a day-to-day basis, it’s simply a testament to the superiority of the ATS-V’s performance and response. Plus, who can deny the thrill of having such unmitigated power in your back pocket? Contact us to learn more about the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V.


2016 Cadillac CTS-V

Let’s be blunt—the CTS-V is a monster of a machine. Cadillac has pulled no punches in designing and building this car, and Cavender Cadillac couldn’t be happier with the outcome. The CTS-V is built for indulging in an unprecedented amount of power for such a luxurious ride. In fact, with its 6.2L supercharged V8 engine that reaches a top speed of 200 mph and goes from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, this auto is the most powerful product that Cadillac has released in its 112-year history.

Visit our dealership or contact us to learn more about these two impeccably powerful vehicles, and experience firsthand how Cadillac has been able to create two V series cars that are both beauties and beasts.



Going Electric: Cadillac Announces Plans For Plug-In

By Alex Winans | Posted in Dealer Information on Tuesday, February 10th, 2015 at 7:28 AM

Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen sure has been doing a lot of hinting around lately. This time, de Nysschen announces that Cadillac is going electric. The company president continues to speak about how important electric cars are and that that new plug-in technologies are here to stay.


Cadillac Goes Electric

To start, Cadillac will begin experimenting with innovative start stop technology on a few models this year. The innovative start stop technology temporarily disengages the engine, saving battery power when not in use. This can provide a longer distance and range of battery power between charges.

To offer even more efficiency, excess pounds will be removed from the body and frame. Instead of heavy metals, Cadillac is considering using a mixture of carbon fiber, high strength steel, and aluminum. The lighter weight of the vehicle will provide a longer range and traveling distance in the new electric model Cadillac.

Not only did the Cadillac president de Nysschen mention the brands moving into the electric EV car market, he also let it slip that Cadillac would be releasing eight new models in the coming years, five of which will take the Cadillac brand into an entirely new direction. It is rumored that not only would the new Cadillac model lineup include plug in electric cars, but also heavy duty pickup trucks, and tiny economy sizes eco vehicles.
