Okay, from what I'm reading, as a new member I have to post here, so here goes. I'm a new member from the Los Angeles area. Former top fuel dragster mechanic (early 1970's) and former cop (mid to late 1970's), now a Television Network Supervisor (safer and better paying job), all around nice guy, single, looking for his other half (okay, too much information). <G>

Welcome to the XLR Forum!! We hope you will enjoy your time here.

I am hopeful that we have almost all of the information about your XLR that you need.

The members and dealers have been teriffic in letting us know about issues and their resolution.

If it is still under warranty the lights should be covered.

Thanks for the welcome!
I am in Lubbock, Tx, home of Texas Tech and Buddy Holly!
Seems they think it is a main bracket that is bent and had to special order it.
I talked w/customer service and they said this type problem has nver occured and seems to be due to puting top up in the wind or some other stress caused event.
Strange!
I appealed it to supervisor and received assurance that if another case comes up they would contact me about coverage. I do not expect a call.
The cost of the bracket ($475) and installation was $1K.
The Zone manager was in to visit, but made no suggestions or indication of coverage.
At any rate, all is working fine now and am enjoying ride.

DEEDO1942:

You will need to escalate this issue.

The top realignment is a known problem as is the wing window not being aligned. Please read the postings in the top area.

If this is the dealer you bought the car from they should be willing to help you out.

See if the head of Cadillac Customer Service will talk with you about a resolution.

I just received my 2008 XLR-V two weeks ago and was looking for a good community to share info with.
I am a Vette lover as well and look forward to using this site.
Sincerely,
Ken

Good day, all. I am a newbie to the forum, obviously. I'm 27, single, no kids and a love of Cadillacs in general. I have personally owned a 1983 Coupe DeVille and currently own a 1994 Fleetwood Brougham. My father got me hooked on Cadillacs. He owned a 1978 Fleetwood D'Elegance and a 1982 ElDorado. I am currently looking at adding an XLR to my stable, just because they are gorgeous, and I want one. Lol. I will have a few questions I would like to ask, however, I wil start my own thread when I get approval from the Admins. Thanks for providing some info I was able to browse thru in the forum already. I look forward to communicating with you all.
