Hey Harry,

Where do you bring your XLR for maintenance, parts... Over in France, we have to go to Opel. The open next to where I live has just started offering Cadillac service, but it takes a while to get appointments because of all the Opels....

Opel - Caddy connection

Interesting....service being done by Opel.

I suppose the connection is through the Catera - now Cadillac CTS, was originally built by Opel in Germany.

Here in the States, the average GM service techs at Cadillac dealers are seeing so few XLRs that they can't possibly have any familiarity with them. The exception of course is "our own" Allen Kuberish (Mr XLR). While not a service tech, he is certainly goes the extra mile in knowing everything there is to know about our cars. This forum is full of posts about service experiences where the tech was servicing his first ever XLR.

Hey, I have to teach valets how to drive the car - its the price we pay for being so unique.


For that reason, I think our EuroXLR drivin' brethren (like Harry) lose nothing by having Opel maintain their cars instead of Mr. Goodwrench

boo on valets............hit the front right bumper and scraped it pretty good, but the valet company sent me to a quality repair shop and they fixed and repainted just the area without a flaw. Also fixed a clear chip on the door by polishing it out. baby is back to her old self.

Hi Mahme,

the US-GM cars here in germany are always sold over bigger Opel-dealers. They have a special department for GM-cars. The service is also over them.

I had always the best experience with my daelers, drop the car of, get a free car while mine is in for service than they give me a call and I pick it up - that`s it.

The regular parts they always have in stock and if there is something real special they get it over-night from sweden. My engine light came on yesterday and didn`t go off - will see what my dealer find out about this. I´ll let you know!

Thanks

Harry

Hi Aviator,

not all Opel dealers sells or maintenence GM cars only bigger dealers, which have a seperate department for Cadillac`s and Chevrolet`s.
These dealers send each year some of their mechanics to the plant in the USA (Michigan or Lansing) for example to get their KNOW-HOW and always be UP-TO-DATE with these cars. I´ve never had problems with service`s.

My dealer (OPEL-GM-House) here in Wuerzburg got for example:
NEW many Opels - 4 SRX - 2 C6 Vettes - 1 CTS - 2 Trail-Blazers
and now they waiting for the new STS which will be in this week.

But this dealer is connected with Frankfurt and Erfurt so they have maybe alltogether about 20 SRX - 15 Vettes - and on and on.

If you want to check it out by yourself, here is the adr.

www.gvo.de than click on NEUWAGEN and than on MARKE - CADILLAC

Have a nice week

Harry
