    I would start by making sure all grounds are clean and tight.

    Help! New Purchaser wuold love some experience advice - major worries

    When I had an oil leak like you described it required the engine to be removed and resealed. It was stioll under warranty but I was told it was about a $3000.00 repair. If I had a seller tell me I could not have the car inspected before I bought it I would have run the other way. With the...

    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.

    XLR decklid liner, part #19169562

    Do you have that logo digitized? We have an embroidery machine and could use it in PES format.

    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. I must have hit it when I was resetting my fuel avg and trip mileage when I filled up the...

    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?

    2008 XLR Anit-Sway Bar.

    I do not know what part number you used but when I ordered my anti sway bar with the info off this site I got a solid bar, not a tube!

    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!

    Oil leak survey

    The dealers have a Service bulletin on oil leaks. When I had the leak you describe they had to pull the engine and reseal the lower end. I think it was 16 hours of labor but I was still under warranty and it did not cost me. When my Allante had the same thing I was told it was about a $2500...

    Do you see XLRs??

    On the way to the Armed Forces Bowl today in my Light Platinum 07 XLR I pulled in to a McDonalds and parked next to a Light Platinum V XLR. When I went in there was only one table in use and there were 6 men drinking coffee. I found that one of them owned the XLR. It was an 06 and he bought...

    jack it up......where?

    I could not see where they were working on it. It looked like they had used a lift that had swing arms on it and they pushed up against the back of the rocker panels about 3 inches from the back. The first time I saw the damage as I waled up to the car as pieces were hanging down. The...

    jack it up......where?

    My Cadillac dealer has had to replace my rocker panels twice after they serviced my car. I thought after the first time they knew better but I guess they let the same clown raise it the second time. At least they did not put up a fuss for making them fix it. Both sides were cracked in the...
