2005 Cadillac XLR 2dr Roadster (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


I HAVE OWNED (9) Cadillacs over the
past (14) and have been extremely
satisfied with each one. In February
2004 I received my dream car, only it
turned out being a nightmare. The
problems started at 430 miles. Lights
that did not work, windows switches
defective, inability to start. XLR
had to be towed on a flatbed twice,
back to the delarship. One of the
fuel tanks had to be replaced, "check
fuel cap" message continuosly on
drivers information center. Less than
13 MPG on open road and highway
driving. Engine misfiring, engine
leaking 1/2 - 1 pint of oil everytime
it was shut off. Various other
electrical problems. Navigation
System works about 1/3 of the time.
In the shop 40 days.

Best Features

Beautiful automobile, extremely fun to drive when available.
