    New proud owner

    Welcome Dennis. I live in Fort Worth and have a 2007 Silver XLR. My son lives in Coppell so we are in the grapevine area and drive the XLR out in that area. Will keep a watch for you!

    Run flat tires

    I would check the build date on any tires that have been in inventory very long. I bought a set for my Allante and later found out they were 5 years old when I bought them. Dealers suggest replacing any that are 7 years old no matter what the mileage on them! I was shocked when the guy that...

    Garage door opener problem

    I hope it works for you but I researched the repeaters being sold on Amazon and found where it said they would not work with the Lear Car2u system. It said to call Lear for the correct repeater.

    Garage door opener problem

    I had the same problem and working with Chamberlain was told I had to buy a repeater for around $50.00 to make it work. Our system is not Homelink but was made by Link and does not work with many openers.

    Mirror lights staying on.

    Thanks Cubby--I found the button above the options button. I have always used the buttons on the lights themselves to turn them on and off and did not know about the other one that turns both on and off.

    Mirror lights staying on.

    Twice now my mirror lights have stayed on and nothing I could do would turn them off. After a while they will time out and go off and stay off the next time I start it up. Anyone have any idea what is causing this?

    Rough ride

    I have run flats on my 07 and even my wife commented how good the ride was. The first thing I would check is the tire pressure. Make sure it is 30 PSI and not more!

    Help! Door Handles

    This has been covered several times and the answer is to buy a new door handle switch. They do not cost much and are easy to replace--only 2 screws.

    Key stash?

    I tried using my fob to lock my car but have found that when I return I can still just walk up and open either the door or the trunk. Using the fob to lock must not turn off the searching feature!
