Hello XLR family! I have a 2007 XLR V and I’m only the second owner and it only has 50k miles. My power steering pump just went on it, and I’m finding that parts are very very scarce for the V series. I finally found a used pump and they want $800 for it. Has anyone else had part issues and do you think it’s worth keeping the car if parts are tough to come by? I love my car, but don’t want a paper weight.
Thanks for any information or parts dealers you may have used!

I have a couple of new pumps for 1/2 what you found a used one for. Plus if you are buying it from a dealer in NC it most likely will be worn out as he does not stand behind his parts .I have 2 people who have contacted me wanting the pumps. I will wait the rest of the day as I made you an offer by PM but after that They will be gone .

Its a private message system that should send a notice to your email account. BY the way on another site people have been looking for pumps for 2-3 months. Summit racing shows them and will let you order one .Some people have had them ordered for 3-4 months >I ordered a couple 6 weeks ago and even though A/C Delco says they are discontinued Summit continues to take your money and gives a shipping day a month from now . I highly doubt they will get them but if they do we will have some extra ones. You can call me at 865-724-6295
