    2006 infrared xlr

    Default

    Well a couple months ago to almost now a year, I found out my front shock was blown. So after looking and going back and forth with my service guy and finding the parts (2 different warehouses) I decided to bite the big one and replace all 4. Because we decided that buy the time the others needs to be replaced, will the parts be available or will they be discontinued with the rest of the xlr parts. It cost me a pretty penny but that big expense is out of the way now. cross fingers nothing else major will go wrong. Figures why couldn’t they have gone out before my extended warranty expired. The extended warranty paid out 16 k or something in that area of repair work since I had the warranty. It expired last 2017nov

    Every time I see my "BABY" I smile and say to myself, "I still don't believe i am a owner of this Great car".

    Topless is the only way to drive

    I purchased a new warranty plan for about 2k in April of 2016, it’s good for 5 years or 100k miles . So far I only use this one once for Air Condition repair, but warranty plan before this one paid out many more pennies then what it cost! That plan was purchased when I bought her in March 2011

    Cadillac XLR

    2006 Gold Mist XLR & 79' Eldorado Convert

    Default Welcome

    Welcome to the XLR Site. --- Just picked mine up from our Cadillac Dealer here last week. They went through the whole car and checked everything out, and made some repairs. I usually do my own work but had too much stuff on my plate. Wanted all done before The Bowling Green Rally that is coming up. Wanted her 'roadworthy'. The Air Bag warning light was on. Not good. Dealer found a bad sensor and replaced it. Low coolant light would occasionally come on (intermittent). Wire had come loose near bottom of radiator and had chaffed on the chassis and was grounding out sometimes. Repaired. Also replaced the strange looking radiator support contraption (aluminum) with the bottom skids that had been broken ever since I got the car. --- I guess the shocks will be next? --- Glad you got it sorted out.

    Again, Welcome

    Hi Dan, You get a chance let me know who your warranty is with? I may see if I can still purchase one for my car? Mine has 36K + miles on it now. Looking forward to meeting you in Bowling Green!
