For those who haven't read some of the other posts........
My V would start then fade for lack of gas.
Flatbed-ed into Allen Cadillac, the dealer I said I would never go back too.
End result was a bad fuel pump/module.
They had to drop the gas tank and found out that I had the two exhaust pipes welded because they had come apart out in Arizona on a trip. They weren't the least bit apologetic about charging me $300 to remove the welds so they could drop the gas tank.
They ordered a new fuel pump/module from Michigan, which took four days and it wouldn't fit my gas tank, so they ordered a new gas tank.
I guess I'm lucky this didn't happen away from home or I would still be in a motel waiting for the pony express to deliver this stuff.
It's back to Tustin for me and Allen will never see my vehicle or me again.

Bob,

We're going to recommend to Cadillac that they put you on the payroll as an Official Tester for XLR's - you seem to be able to bring out the worst in them - if there's a flaw, you'll find it. :lol :lol

Best regards,
Ed and Sandra

P.S. We do appreciate you sharing all your experiences!

Ed and Sandra,
I don't make these things up. I just report them. Don't shoot the messenger.
I can now aprreciate members that get their tops stuck up in the air or won't open or close. There's nothing worse than getting in your car, push the button and feel the engine die on a year old car. My V has been trouble free up to this point. I just think it's sad that it takes forever to get a simple part like a fuel pump.
Even though the tech was not a very good communicator, he did do a great job in chipping the weld off the pipes and putting them back together the way they where supposed to be.

Back on the road again, but what if that happened in Winslow, Arizona or Two Arrows or better yet between those two places. Hans and I wouldn't make it to BG.
Bob, Get that car up and running for the Rendezvous.

I figured if anyone wants to hear this, Ed and Sandra does.
Took my V out on the super slide today and found the car shaking all over the place, so I took it to the place I bought my rims and asked them to check the balance. After a wait of three hours, I had time to think, and since they didn't deflate nor move the tires, I thought I would ask the mechanic to check for the hub ring on the one tire that was suppose to have been removed while working on the gas tank. As I walked up to him, I see he has a bag of hub rings in his hand and says, "There are no hub rings on these rims and we put them on 6 months ago. For some unknown reason they removed all four tires and never put the hub rings back on. In case you don't know what there for, they are like spacers on the hub when the hub on the rim doesn't match up.
So do you still think I should be a test pilot for GM?
As I said before, I don't make this stuff up.

We've never thought for a moment that you do. Let's just say we think perhaps you "exercise" your XLR's a bit more vigorously than most (not a bad thing)! :D :D
