2006 Cadillac XLR Convertible 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Every time i walk into my garage i just stare in awe for a few seconds. With this parked next to my 2007 XKR it is a sight to see. The XLR is one of the best head turning cars period. It just looks incredible, and when you add the retractable hardtop thats reason enough to buy it. I have the regular XLR and it is quick, but one can tell it needs a little more power and desperately needs a better exhaust note. The interior is a little cramped, i'm 6 ft tall, and lacks storage. Personally i like the interior, its nice enough and is very user friendly, though it could be nicer. IT is just a great overall car.


Favorite Features

retractable hardtop, head turning good looks, user friendly interior


Suggested Improvements

interior could be nicer, more cabin space and storage nooks, better engine, ride and handling are good until i get in my XKR.

2006 Cadillac XLR Convertible 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

While a very unique vehicle - those seeking a luxury sports car will find it falls short of the XK, SL, 6xx series vehicles. It's Corvette heritage is very obvious and in the supercharged version has good performance (non-supercharged is a bit "wanting" IMHO). The lack of any type of storage behind the seats really makes this a challenge when traveling. Also with the top down - storage is practically zip - especially when compared with the SL.


Favorite Features

Open road - top down - cruising.


Suggested Improvements

Space behind the seats. More trunk room somehow. More performance in non-supercharged version Improved Adaptive cruise - it surges too much - could be much smoother. More Info in the HUD.

2006 Cadillac XLR Convertible 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is my 2nd Cadillac, 1st was 2005 CTS. The XLR is a sporty, good looking car that attracts a lot of attension. The only complant is the lack of knowledge for repairs and maintence and it's common malfunctions of computer driven systems. Also for such an expensive car the FM raido reception system is weak and some interior items are built cheaply such as visors, visor mirrors and storage compartments between seats. Other than that, the car is a great ride. Note: Watch out for the cops, they seem attracted to expensive look and don't take kindly to top down and music loud.


Favorite Features

Quick acceleration, Hard top convertiable. Elegant interior and stylish exterior.


Suggested Improvements

Better Sound System reception which is expected from an expensive car. More reliable interior parts, not cheap plastic ones such as visors, visor mirrors and storage compartments. More experianced personal for repairs.

Review

I love my new car. It is somewhat rare and a real head turner. I moved up to it from an '06 Vette. I have had some issues with the GPS not logging in, but it should be fixed soon.


Favorite Features

The hardtop convertible.


Suggested Improvements

The nagging problem with the GPS & a sticking switch on the dash.

Review

The driving and power performance of this vehicle are overwhelming. I love the way it handles and takes corners. It hugs the road. It has a luxurious interior and easy to get to controls. The hard top convertible is an eye-catcher and people always stare and comment what a beautiful car this is.


Favorite Features

The power and performance.


Suggested Improvements

Provide more storage in the front.
