You are in the Cadillac XLR and XLR-V
What is this discussion about?
Cadillac XLR, Cadillac XLR-V, Coupe, Convertible
Jun 25, 2007 (9:15 am)
So, back from a week in SoCal: Santa Monica, Westwood, Pacific Pallisades, Malibu and San Diego. I saw 'em all: Bentleys, Aston Martins, Ferraris, Lamborghini, Porsches, Mercedes of all shapes and sizes, BMW-a-gogo, Vipers, Vettes and Prius'! Even a Qvale Mangusta! But not one XLR! Not one!
What's up with that? Where are y'all?

Can anyone tell me why the production of 2007 xlrs is listed as 1505
when 2004-5-6 xlrs is near 4000 each year?

Is that a production number or sales number? Either way, I'd have to believe that the answer is: demand!
As, I believe, the XLR is produced in Bowling Green alongside the 'Vette, perhaps they bled off production time for the 'Vette. I'll also believe that there is higher demand for the 'vette... Just a theory, though.
#14 of 20 An XLR or anorher SL??
Apr 21, 2008 (6:59 am)
I've been with Benz's fo the last 10 years and now am considering replacing my SL with a good low milage XLR. Has Cadallac REALLY arrived again or is it just press. I left the American car market in 78 wih a vow to never buy another one ever, then I saw the XLR which is just drop dead beautifull. It also has a lager trunk than the SL,is much cheaper TO BUY. Qustion is, is the quality there??? Thanksin adance for any input..Ron

I'm a new contributor, and I'd like to talk a bit about the XLR & XLR-V.
I first purchased an '06 XLR, loved it! I should also mention that my five previous cars were Vettes, starting in '86.
No other car I've owned has gotten so much attention, age, sex of the people didn't matter, everybody had questions, the most common: "What kind of car is that?"
Well, after owning the X for awhile I had to jump to the V, and I can tell you, it's a different car!!! Very different, it handles great and has power to spare! Actually, I can see myself getting another in a couple of years.
So, if any of you are on the fence and wondering if you should take the plunge, do it! Don't hesitate!!! You'll love the V. If money is tight I would still recommend the X, it's great car,
One word of caution, if you buy used stay away from '04s and be sure to get one that is Certified by a Caddy dealership.
#16 of 20 Warranty

We are in the process of buying an 2005 xlr and wondered about the extended warranty. It is not a Gm dealer but an independent one. They are offering a plan by vehicle one. It is a GM company. What does anyone think?
