"Even though this car was introduced in 2004, it still looks fresh today. After almost a year of ownership of a 2008 Alpine Edition, I simply have nothing bad to say. Great mileage 27-29 highway, 0-defects, head turning style, quality parts, great audio, stunning performance. Although it shares many mechanical components of a Corvette, it just feels different. More elegant, more substantial and impressive. Contrary to the 2 Corvettes I have owned in the past, the XLR doesn't get boring or start to feel cheap and rattled. Hard to believe that they come from the same factory. I would highly recommend this car, but hammer the dealer price to get a real value."
"Great Car..not my only cadillac...my older friend has one...i had to go buy one as soon as i saw his. i loved it immediately. he said "at least im not the only one who fell in the pool". It's spent 4 or 5 times in the dealer for issues; like the top (top not secure); replaced module for top's computer and re-programmed; then rear end, which was making a horrible noise..(has to do with the posi-track rear end (there is a service bulletin out for those of you having trouble with that). every so often it would sound like the chain feel off your pedal bike when i'd back-up to the right and trunk leaking a little hydraulic fluid. Of course not all these at once...it's all been fixed under warranty and hasn't had a problem. I still think it's still a great car and i wouldn't want to get rid of it. ..as previously said in a review....it's better than a corvette without that ugly interior. it's a nice, nice car and worth those trips to the dealer."
"I gave up my Corvette Z06 for this car and never looked back. This is an incredible work of art and engineering. Turns heads everywhere especially in my rare color of Xenon Blue. I will own this car for many years!"
"Car turns heads everywhere I go, especially teen males. Aside from that, the car is quick, luxurious, and scarce; people out here opt for Mercedes 500 SL's but this will run them off the road and looks better. Value for the $ unequaled but like most US cars, depreciates a little too fast. All in all, a very superb car."
"this car attracts attention..beautiful vehicle..but the performance and luxury are number one...driving at 90-100 feels as if you are driving at 60 pmh. always have plently left when need it. car is reliable and does anything you ask of it.pleasure to drive and own..retains its value...compared to others this one is truely 5 star all the way"
