And this came from who at GM?. Like Ruthie I'm not surpised but a statement like this needs to be qualified with a source.
I received an email from a dealer in Denver telling me there will be no more XLR or XLR V produced. I also received my premium notice on the XLR today and the rates went up due to the number of accidents the XLR's have been in. Funny I have only heard of two nation wide and they were a couple of years ago. First Robin
Hey Robin, what premium? Do you mean your insurance premium? Mine went down because of a ticket that expired on my DMV but I'm at about$1,200 a year with AAA.
How can they rate a car because of accidents? I probably helped on the accidents, I had two in 2 years, trying to do donuts on the freeway.
It's not surprising, GM has done a poor job of marketing the XLR. Since buying mine I have had a considerable number of people tell me that they never heard of the XLR before and did not know that Cadillac even made a roadster. Couple that with the overpriced sticker price and it's easy to understand why the XLR is getting axed.
And airfare - a flight from Cleveland to LV is running about $150 these days. My how prices have fallen! Of course, the airfare is the cheapest part of that trip....
Even the cars on the line? Do they finish all the work "in progress" before shutdown?
