  • One of my two happiest days with a car just happened! May 16, 2022
    Semi-retired magazine writer, a newbie with an ‘04 XLR in Florida and NC. Had it less than a week so still in the glow of excitement, lol. Once owned a 1939 40 ft. mahogany yacht. A Hurricane sunk it at the dock. So no matter what problems I encounter with a 19 year old high-mileage […]
  • THANK GOD FOR LITTLE OLD LADIES! May 16, 2022
    I bought my 2005 Xenon Blue XLR on Dec. 3rd 2013 after seeing my first one live in June of that year. As a long time car collector, I was aware of the XLR but never considered one when they were released. I was still deeply in a Mercedes, Ferrari and Morgan phase and just […]
  • Aloha! May 15, 2022
    Hello everyone. I made the decision after a lot of hesitation to purchase my brand new 2008 Cadillac XLR base with 45k miles in Honolulu last night and wanted to drop by to say hello. I can already smell and oil leak and there's a "wobble" somewhere in the suspension that I'm hoping is just […]
  • Joke May 15, 2022
    A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, 'My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?' The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, and even fix his car. As the man tries to fall […]
  • Greetings from Flint Michigan May 15, 2022
    So I’m a former Allante owner looking to upgrade a bit and as I sift through the EBay’s and Auto traders to research XLR’s I find a local place selling an 04 with a trashed interior, fogged headlights and the top doesn’t work. I know just enough about the tops to stay the heck away […]
  • Trans delay shifting from reverse to drive when cold May 15, 2022
    My '04 has 69K miles and it has 3 second delay sometimes when shifting from reverse to drive - mostly just on startup. My guess is low fluid, what say you? I'd like to add a little fluid and haven't seen exactly what fluid to add. Would greatly appreciate help there as well. Thanks

  • Been working on this project since February. Finally finished. Maybe!!!!! May 7, 2022
    So been working on stainless steel crash loops since February. I figured out how to form them using the existing crash loop. Thought it would be hella easy to find someone to do the welding, grinding and/or polishing. Not so. Gave it to a so-called restoration expert and he hacked up the welds on one, […]

  • Heater core replacement May 6, 2022
    I have a 2007 XLR V that I purchased in January of 2022. Shortly after I got it home I discovered that the heater core had been leaking and the pervious owner had bypassed the core and connected the two heater hoses together. He had also covered up the smell of the antifreeze with some […]

    Hi guys, I'm David. I have a 2009 Cadillac XLR-V. I changed tires with Michelin CrossClimate 2 with tire size 235/45r19.
