2006 Cadillac XLR 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5A)
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.
Quick acceleration, Hard top convertiable. Elegant interior and stylish exterior.
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.
