It goes with the car, and if you are dealing with a dealership like Mr. XLR described, feel free to tell them that it is paid through GMPP. There are specific labor operations for this. Also, there are specific filter replacement intervals for the cabin and air filters. The oil life indicator must indicate change necessary, or AT LEAST ONCE EVERY TWELVE MONTHS. Not yelling a members, just providing emphasis. If your car stays in the garage all winter, it still needs the oil changed at least once a year.ebferro said:Anyone know if the free oil change applies to second owners who bought the extended warranty?
Allen, you do not offend me with your comment, because I agree with you. The lack of dealer representation on this forum should be a good indicator. If you truly love and believe in your product, you will make the time to obtain the necessary knowledge to help your clients enjoy it to the fullest. If you are after a quick buck, well..........:nodnoMr XLR said:Blaise, (Motorboat) Thank you
Im sorry, but this may upset some dealers, It never ceases to shock me how ignorant so many dealers are on something that has been standard since the first XLRs were delivered in September 2003.
How any dealer has the nerve to allow his people talk to a client about the XLR and they dont even know about the most basic principal of the XLR. The XLR is not only Cadillacs Flagship but the premier vehicle for all of GM. Im sorry, but I will just get started once again so I will simply tell you about the program.
The Program Is called XLR Premium Care it is clearly spelled out to each and every dealer in the United States and Canada. The basic part of the oil change program is that Cadillac will change your oil at 10,000 miles or if the change oil lite comes on or if the vehicle is 12 months old. This process continues through out the 4/50,000 warranty.
For over a year I have had a page dedicated to the Premium Care Program, simply go to:
I put this type of information on my sites so my clients can see the level of knowledge & professionalism I try my best to bestow upon them. I get calls daily from my clients around the country asking how come other forum members dont seem to know all about their XLR.
This thread is the perfect example, like I have said, it is NOT cadillacs fault, it is the fault of 85% of the XLR dealers.
For any of the members that feel they have received a superior level of knowledge from their XLR sales executive, I am sorry if it sounded like I was bashing all Cadillac dealers. and congrats to that dealer for attaining that level of professionalism and understanding of the XLR.
If you feel you cant say that, please continue to go to:
and please take some time to learn more about your investment.
I bought mine at auction and it was 12 months old with 4,000 miles. My dealer happily provided the free oil change due to the 12 month period and will do the filters at 15,000 which looks like about when the oil life will be down around 10-15%.ebferro said:Anyone know if the free oil change applies to second owners who bought the extended warranty?
