I do appreciate your help on this site and as you know I try very hard to be helpful as well, but once again, I'm not surprised to see that GM hasn't given any thought to people who have written customer care or talked to customer care in the last 3 years.
Yes, my V is a wonderful machine, but we asked for upgrades of many kinds, non of which included a heated steering wheel or new fancy buttons on the steering wheel. It seems that they just zeroed in on chrome wheels, and steering wheels.
As far as the different paints, that's a personal preference thing.
NO heated/cool cup holders (Escalade has these)
NO improvement in the nav system (Escalade got this)
NO retractable windscreen
NO two tone interiors
NO remote start
NO more horse power
NO decent brake pads that last more than 11,000 miles
NO fingerprint detection on startup.
These are just a few of my wants, I'm sure others have a list too.
I shall ask the general manager, Jim Taylor when I go to BG, or maybe Len Tillard at quality control, why no one takes heed to the customer wants & desires and no one answers are e-mails & letters.
For those that have been wondering about the 2008 XLR and all the changes that have been done, I have compiled them for simple viewing. You can see all the changes at:
