And another comparison, somehow FCA can find dealers in Europe that organise good-looking showrooms. Most are in fact multifranchise stores but I haven't found any single one that looks like crap. Last not least - if they offer sth. on their web page, it means they sell&service cars. And all those Rams, Durangos, Challengers don't have four-bangers under their hoods but V8s. Unbelievable!













Build it, and they will come.

IMHO Dodge/RAM is as "AMERICAN" as you can get in car styles and is unapologetically NOT European

Every contact person disappeared from cadillaceurope.com web page - just as every vehicle excluding XT4. So there's no Cadillac Europe official and Cadillac offer is limited to ONE CAR.

There are still two guys on their media site. How about an exclusive interview for GMi about Cadillac's EU assault :zippy:?
Frankly speaking they are either computer-generated people that don't exist or they are members of Mary Barra family who exploit GM money. What company in the world pays people for doing absolutely nothing? For their salary Cadillac could easily restore a few of their dealerships in U.S. Why do they keep thing called Cadillac Europe???

When the so-called 'Cadillac specialists' on official Cadillac Europe website appear to be a bunch of losers who either are just Opel dealers who don't want to deal with Cadillac or they can't help customer because 'we don't have software and tools, we can only change oil' YOU MUST TAKE THINGS IN HAND

This guy living in Belgium is servicing his tranny on the street. I wish he did it in front of Bloody Mary Barra's house. I am sure she has real estates somewhere in Europe.




Hopefully Wuling customers in EU will get proper customer care :fall:

That looks like a superior luxury ownership experience right there. :-(

Anyone who buys a Cadillac outside of North America and possibly China is asking for abuse.

It is the same back in the Arab homeland. You won’t find the parts and skill needed to maintain it.

If you are concerned with reliability and peace of mind, get a Lexus.

They sold 230,000 in 2020. With the size of China it wouldn't be hard to find places where there aren't any. I would expect most to be around Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen/Guangzhou.
I am able to imagine there are places in China where it's hard to spot one brand or another as China is huge. And things like this happen in much smaller Europe too even among European well established nameplates. You won't find many BMWs in the east of Germany or in Netherlands outside of biggest cities where people are humble and drive mostly basic European&Asian transportation. But when You cross the border to Poland there are suddenly tons of BMWs (driven mostly by local douchebags who race them and commit many fatal accidents) as people there love to show off even if they really can't afford a 'better' brand. I would find many other examples of this sort as I travel a lot around Europe - much less new Toyota/Honda/Suzuki products in favor of KIA/Hyundai on many markets etc.

. I can vouch for this in a weird :drive::abnormal: sort of way. Passing time watching the Youtube videos of the worst drivers/idiots on wheels and that shows what's out on the streets as well, backing up exactly what you are saying here.

My favorite YouTube car videos of idiots is Baitcar. Man, it’s always priceless to see the thief in a panic mode when they realize it’s going down. Basic fight or flight primal instincts kick in.

I thought it was kind of early for April 1.

And yes, Baitcar is fun. Too bad our masters of tolerance, diversity, and inclusiveness have decided cop shows like LivePD and Cops should not be allowed for the huddled masses.

I am not even going to check Baitcar as I am fed up with this kind of stories from local news. The newest BMW douchebag comes from an area where my friends live and often use the same road. That could have been them in that red car (the driver was killed, the douchebag survived)


I complain Cadillac&Corvette are so rare. No dealers, no service etc. But at least those who buy them on grey market are real enthusiasts not clowns who neither have skills nor brains.

These guys at the GM Swiss office with huge salaries work their fingers to the bone to push one Cadillac model through 20 dealers across whole continent. Meanwhile GM offers Escalade & CT5 in Japan with steering wheel on the wrong side. So nothing changes. GM is fighting...

Conark Shah, Managing Director Cadillac Europe.
Rene Kreis – Head of Public Relations bei Cadillac und Chevrolet
Caspar Winkelmann Head of Marketing & Product Planning
Martin Siegenthaler Head of Customer Experience & e-Commerce
Laszlo Lovassy – head of sales operations
Sakib Zaman – chief financial officer

And don't forget, EVs are coming and GM is studying them!

Upon curiosity, I went over to the Cadillac Europe website to search for dealerships near London.
There was only 1.
https://www.ianallanvirginiawater.co.uk

There were a few more around Munich.
here's the first one on the search page.

It would be nice if Cadillac had a better presence in Europe. But they don't have the time, energy, or money to do it. They barely have the appropriate product for Europe as well. They spent too much time trying to figure out diesel, that by the time they got one, diesels were being phased out in Europe.
