Simple interest is a method interest accrual that occurs with auto loans. Review your Cadillac Financial retail installment contract regarding the interest that accrues daily on the principal balance of your Cadillac.

Each payment you make will first pay down any accrued interest by multiplying the daily interest rate by the principal, by the number of days occur between payments. As you make required installment payments each month, payments will be applied first to any interest that has accrued on the unpaid principal balance, and then to the principal amount due for the month, and finally, for other fees, as applicable.

Payments are applied in the following order: accrued interest, past due principal, current due principal, fees (other than late charges), late charges and future due payments. Cadillac Financial’s standard practice is to apply extra payments received for future due dates.

Any amount of money paid over your amount due will be applied to future payments. This may include principal and interest, assuming the account is current and there are no past-due payments; next, money will be applied to late charges or other unpaid charges owed on your account. Each payment, regardless of the amount, is automatically applied this way.

Cadillac Financial currently doesn’t offer an option to make a principal-only payment.* If you pay more than your monthly payment (depending on your payment history), your billing statement may show that your next payment amount is less than the scheduled amount, or it may show that your next payment is not due until a later future date. Even though your billing statement may reflect that you owe less than the full monthly scheduled payment, you may choose to pay the scheduled payment amount or more than the scheduled amount. Or, you can pay the reduced amount shown in the billing statement, depending on your goals. If you'd like to pay less interest or pay off your account sooner, you can always pay more than what’s reflected on your statement.

If monthly payments are consistently made prior to the scheduled due date or more than the amount due is paid, less interest accrues on the unpaid principal. Therefore, the final payment may be less than the scheduled payment amount listed on your contract and the account may be paid off sooner.

There isn’t a limit to the number of extra payments that can be made per month. To check on your payment, chat with us in MyAccount or call the concierge team at 1-877-223-5893 or 1-877-2CF-LUXE.

*This does not apply to lease accounts.

Lease

Visit the lease-end section to learn about your options.

The Cadillac dealership where you leased your Cadillac can also help with lease-end questions. They can explain/review the process to return your vehicle, the inspection required, excess mileage, and more.

For more information, send us a message by visiting MyAccount. You can also contact our Concierge team at 1-877-2CF-LUXE (1-877-223-5893) with questions.

You are responsible for any applicable tolls, tickets, property taxes, or fees assessed during your lease contract. The initial bill will go to Cadillac Financial. Then, charges will be added to your monthly billing statement with a copy of the original bill. If you don’t receive a monthly billing statement, you’ll receive an off-cycle bill for the applicable fees.

Cadillac Financial has a lease assumption program that helps facilitate lease transfers. Lease assumptions must meet the following requirements:

  • Vehicle must be titled in the same state for the lessee and the assuming lessee.
  • For new leases, lien must be perfected.
  • Lease must be 6 months or more from maturity.
  • Assuming lessee must meet all of GM Financial’s underwriting and credit guidelines.
  • The account is current on payments and must remain current through the lease-assumption process.
  • If a lease is contracted under multiple parties, the lease can be assumed by new lessees as long as all parties agree and sign third-party authorization forms as well as the new contract.

For more information, send us a message by visiting MyAccount. You can also contact our Concierge team at 1-877-2CF-LUXE (1-877-223-5893) with questions.

The standards for vehicle wear are listed in your lease agreement. Examples of excess wear include, but are not limited to, missing or broken parts, dented or damaged body panels, or cracked or broken glass. A lease-end guide will be mailed to you with helpful information regarding excess wear.

If you believe you have excess wear on your Cadillac, you can schedule a complimentary pre-return inspection with AutoVIN, our third-party service. This optional service can identify the areas that need extra attention before returning your Cadillac. All you need is your VIN and Cadillac Financial account number to schedule an appointment. For your convenience, the inspection has a four-hour window and can be completed at your home, office or preferred Cadillac dealership.

If you buy or lease a new Cadillac or GM vehicle when turning in your Cadillac lease, you may be eligible to receive a partial waiver on excess wear charges.

To determine eligibility, contact us through Cadillac Financial MyAccount or call our Concierge team at 1-877-2CF-LUXE (1-877-223-5893).

If you have excess wear charges and you’re a My Cadillac Rewards member, you can use those points toward eligible charges like excess wear or mileage. Login to MyAccount and click “Pay with Points”.

Schedule a lease-end inspection at home, at work, or at a dealership. Schedule this inspection online, contact us through MyAccount, or call 1-877-2CF-LUXE (1-877-223-5893).

A disposition fee is a flat-rate fee that is charged to Cadillac Financial lessees after a Cadillac is returned. The disposition fee covers the cost of preparing the vehicle for resale at auction and is outlined in the lease agreement.

Cadillac will waive the disposition fee if you stay in the Cadillac/GM family by financing or leasing another new Cadillac or GM vehicle at the end of your lease, or if you choose to purchase your current lease.

Check your contract’s purchase option for details about purchasing your Cadillac.

Customers located in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Kansas, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Vermont can’t purchase Cadillacs directly from Cadillac Financial or GM Financial. Residents of these states will need to visit a Cadillac dealership to purchase their Cadillac lease.

If your Cadillac has a recall, bring it to a Cadillac dealership to fix the recall at no charge.

If you turn your Cadillac in early due to a recall, your lease will be processed as an early termination, and your lease-end liability invoice will be calculated per your lease agreement.

Bankruptcy

If you file a petition for bankruptcy, federal law prohibits Cadillac Financial from attempting to collect on an account that existed at the time of filing, absent permission from bankruptcy court. Cadillac Financial will place your account in bankruptcy status. We are not permitted to send billing statements to customers involved in an active bankruptcy case. Automatic or recurring payments on the account will also stop.

If you have filed for bankruptcy and want to surrender your vehicle, please call for retail accounts 877-203-5538 and for lease accounts 855-719-9692. Please have your account number and bankruptcy case number available.

A Reaffirmation Agreement is an agreement between a creditor and debtor(s) who have filed bankruptcy stating that the debtor(s) will honor the terms of the initial contract established with the creditor.

You are not required to sign a Reaffirmation Agreement. If you do sign a Reaffirmation Agreement with GM Financial, you’ll resume receiving monthly statements on your account once your case has been discharged. You’ll also be able to access your account via Cadillac Financial, make payments and be eligible for deferments on your account once your case has been discharged.

Not all services are available to customers who have been discharged in a bankruptcy case but have not reaffirmed their debt with GM Financial. If you wish to reaffirm your debt with GM Financial, a Reaffirmation Agreement must be signed – by you, your attorney and GM Financial – and filed in a timely manner with the bankruptcy court. If you are not represented by bankruptcy counsel, the bankruptcy court must approve the Reaffirmation Agreement before it is a valid, binding agreement. It is your responsibility to obtain this approval.

Cadillac Financial urges you to discuss your obligations as a debtor in bankruptcy with your bankruptcy attorney. Account terms are not modified in a Reaffirmation Agreement with Cadillac Financial.

If a discharge order is entered in a Chapter 12 or 13 bankruptcy case, Cadillac Financial is prohibited from making collection efforts on any debt that was discharged. Depending on the GM Financial arrangements made under the plan of reorganization approved by the bankruptcy court, GM Financial may be required to release its security interest upon the entry of the discharge. Or, security interest in the collateral on the account remains and GM Financial will retain its state law and contractual rights to protect such interest. Please discuss these alternatives with your bankruptcy attorney.

Customers in bankruptcy will not receive monthly statements. You do have the option to pay online by logging in to MyAccount or the Cadillac Financial mobile app for Android and iOS. You also have the option to pay by phone, pay with cash, or mail in a check or money order. If your account is in repossession status, you will not be able to make payments online.

Cadillac Financial is not attempting to collect a debt by allowing access to these options.

Payoff

Any extra payments on an account is automatically refunded within 60 days following date of payoff. To verify an overage on a paid-off account, please log in to MyAccount and message or call our concierge team at 1-877-223-5893 or 1-877-2CF-LUXE.

Your account balance may differ from your payoff balance due to interest charges, fees and other items that may be credited or debited to your account.

Lease customers may have an outstanding balance for all contractual obligations, such as late fees, excessive mileage or excessive wear.

Payoff details can be found after logging in to MyAccount or the Cadillac Financial mobile app for Android and iOS. You can also contact our concierge team at 1-877-223-5893 or 1-877-2CF-LUXE.

Any overages or extra payments on an account should be refunded within 30 days.

You will typically receive a title or lien release, depending on the state where the vehicle is titled, 30 days after your account is paid in full (or earlier, as required by state law).

Simple interest is an interest accrual method. Interest accrues on a daily basis on the unpaid principal balance on the account. Each payment you make will first pay down any accrued interest, then the rest will apply to the principal or other applicable fees. You can calculate simple interest by multiplying the daily interest rate by the principal by the number of days that elapse between payments. Learn more about simple interest.

Fill out an online application to apply for prequalification. Prequalification determines if you’re likely to qualify for financing. It’s the first step in the process for credit approval.

After prequalification, you can submit a credit application through a Cadillac dealership. If you choose not to prequalify, you can still submit an application through a Cadillac dealer.

If you're not prequalified, follow up with the Cadillac dealer selected in your application for assistance with your Cadillac shopping and financing needs.

Ask your insurance company when they will send the check to Cadillac Financial. Once Cadillac Financial receives the insurance check, it can take three to five business days to process.

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) may cover the value of your financed vehicle if it’s totaled.

Insurance companies declare a vehicle a total loss when damages cost more than the cash value of the vehicle, which means it would cost more to repair the vehicle than it’s worth. A vehicle may also be deemed a total loss if it’s stolen and not recovered. After a total loss, the insurance company will pay what they determine the vehicle is worth.

GAP coverage is an ancillary product that could pay a portion up to the remainder of the balance owed on a financed vehicle, but it does not cover additional charges added to the account such as late fees or property tax. GAP is an optional product and is not required to obtain financing.

Total Loss: If there is an overage on the account after the insurance check is applied, a refund will be released within 15 business days.

Insurance Repair: Once repairs deemed necessary by the insurance company are completed and the required documents have been received and verified, a refund will be processed in three business days. The funds will be sent to the body shop repairing the vehicle unless proof that the repair bill has been paid is received by Cadillac Financial.
