Problems with your XLR

Hi again, as the only Turkish XLR owner I want to know what problems you had with your car until now I had too many and waited 2 weeks each time for my car to get fixed of course there is no such a thing as warranty in my country because cadillac does not have any distributor in Turkey: ( my car is at 22 000 km )

Radiator changed. ( because of water leak)
Rottors changed 3 times already ( As a 19 years old person I need to drive fast. PLEASE DONT BLAME ME FOR THAT!)
Top sensors have been changed ( I always had the "top not secure" warning).
One part of the air conditioning system changed (because they told me that it was working all the time instead of just when the A/C was turned on).

Because of the high tax rate of my country I paid 115% more then you did (=170 000 $) to drive that car. And I had more problems that I cant actualy remember. Was it worth it?... if you asked me this question those days I would never say "Yes it is" but now that I have my corsa on (for which I paid 6000 $ including taxes) and that I dont have any problems with my car I think it is worth paying that much money. I am happy that I made the decision to buy an XLR instead of a SL500 which we have more than 500 only in istanbul (its price here is 180 000€).

After analysing your problems with the xlr can you say that it was a good decision?

I have almost 15,000 miles on mine with only a couple of minor problems. Drivers seat rocked, they replaced the track some squeeling in the front brakes, they turned the rotors. That's about it. Boy your taxes are high!
