About Cadillac XLR

Continuing as Cadillac's only open-air offering, the XLR competes with other long-established premium convertibles in a battle to regain the company's world-class status. With a potent V8 engine, a Corvette-derived chassis and a retractable hardtop as slick as it is practical, the XLR is certainly a contender. But, in this league, name recognition is just as important as performance and price. Of course, the premium convertible market is a small slice of the pie and, with such a short list of competitors, XLR sales should continue to gain momentum. The only thing we can see holding back sales might be the high price tag some may feel the XLR has yet to earn.

"This car has phenominal performance and it definitely turns heads. When I first bought it (used), it had a lot of problems with the convertible top. Finally, the designer was called and it was simply a connector that had gone bad. Once that was fixed the car has been terrific. It is by far the best. I had a DeVille before and this puts it to shame."
