I've had my XLR since March '04. I also have had problems with the power steering resevoir, but it goes beyond that. I signed up for a high performance driving course at Sears Point. Lost the steering early on in the exercise, before I even had a chance to get the car out on the full track. Had it taken back to the dealer on a flatbed and the diagnosis was "cracked oil resevoir". Got it back and went back to finish the course, without incident this time. However, a month later I went back for "track days". I had been around the track maybe seven or eight times when I got a loud whine, smoke out the rear and a transmission overheat signal from the DIC. But it was the steering unit again. The oil got so hot it literally destroyed the resevoir. Back on the flatbed again. They put in another resevoir and released the car to me, but it was still whining and it got worse (started growling) so back in it went. Turns out the rack and pinion was burned up also. They ordered the new part but when it came in they discovered that they didn't have the special Corvette tool required to install it. More time goes by with my expensive toy in the shop. Today they called and said that the new gear is installed but that the car is still whinning. Meanwhile I have had an ongoing discussion with customer service over whether they will warranty it on the race track (not racing mind you, just enjoying it ). They finally got back to me this morning and said no, they will not. I will pursue this to a hgher level because I think that if they are serious about competing with the Germans then they should back the car. Maybe I'm off base here but that is my opinion. Meanwhile, the Audis, Mercs., Bimmers etc. (including a $30K Mustang here and there) are merrily blasting around that race track with no problems. Even the Vettes seem to survive. If you read the book they sent to us you learn that they experienced this steering overheating problem in testing and supposedly fixed it. Looks to me like they didn't succeed. I'm more than a little irk'd to say the least.
