  • XLRs on Ebay March 25, 2021
    I checked today for the first time in a long time, and I can report that the prices of XLR's on Ebay are unusually high-- well above "market values."

  • UPDATE ON MY 2006 AND DEALER FIASCO April 8, 2021
    Middle of January I get a call from Sterling McCall Cadillac about my XLR that's been there since January 2019. In essence, they said we can't fix it, come get it, and bring our loaner back. So we go up there a couple of days later. Talk to the 3rd service manager since last year. […]
  • Roof top latch does not release April 7, 2021
    My roof top latch does not release when opening the hardtop. It may be because the ground isn't level where the problem began. I thought about using an T wrench to unlock it and then cycle it cycle it open/close. Do I have to or should I open the pressure relief valve to do so????
