Hello. Recently purchased a Xenon Blue 2004 XLR with 12,500 miles. We have put on about 1,000 miles and absolutely enjoy driving the car whenever the weather is good.
Shortly after the purchase, interesting issues started popping up such as water on the garage floor, the trunk lid would not close, and the temp jumped from about 190 to 220. Took it to the Caddy dealer and they found a bad fan sensor, a leaky radiator, a leaking water pump, bad sensor on the trunk, and the emergency key cylinder is bad, so the key will not work.
Fortunately, we purchased a bumper to bumper and so far the bulk of the costs have been covered. It was in the shop for about 10 days the past two weeks and I took it back today for a few more days of repair. They have to pull the rear facia to replace the emergency key cylinder.
Compared to our older Corvettes and an STS, the XLR is a hoot to drive, very responsive, comfortable, and really nice looking. We just hope it stays out of the shop long enough in the future that we can enjoy it.
