About Cadillac XLR

Being Cadillac's flagship vehicle for six years, Cadillac XLR was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's Cadillac Motor Car Division between 2003 to 2009 as a luxury sports roadster. Originally introduced to replace the Cadillac Allante, XLR was the second roadster offered by Cadillac in recent years. Built based on the Chevrolet Corvette GM Y platform, XLR had its own styling, interior and design ideas. It also came in an ultra-performance variant called XLR-V. Though was nominated for the North American Car of the Year award for 2004, XLR was discontinued after the 2009 model year.
Cadillac XLR made its debut at the 2003 Detroit Motor Show and was put into production in the 2004 model year. It featured standard equipment heated and cooled leather seats, wood interior trim, remote keyless access, 18-inch alloy wheels, side airbags as well as a navigation and a Bose audio system with satellite radio and a CD changer, and DVD system sharing a 7-inch dashboard screen. It was the first production Cadillac with radar Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). During its lifetime, XLR was powered by a 4.6 V8 rated at 320 hp and 310 pound-feet of torque, while the XLR-V was powered by a 4.4 L Supercharged V8 producing 443 hp and 414 lb-ft of torque. The difference lies in the XLR received power through a 5-speed or 6-speed automatic transmission while the XLR-V was equipped with the 6-speed automatic transmission.

Cadillac XLR Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Though bosting bold, angular styling outside and sophisticated presence, Cadillac XLR still came up short in terms of maximum performance and interior detailing. Therefore, you had better be prepared for these common problems on XLR in advance:
First, engine failure and cooling failure are the most common and serious issues that Cadillac XLR drivers have ever met. Generally speaking, engine failure simply is a very critical issue, once the cooling system also fails, all situations only deteriorates. While some XLR drivers complained that at first, only white or gray smoke comes from the exhaust pipe, or noises comes from the engine, then they could find leaking coolant or oil under the car, the engine starts to run roughly such as keeping at a high operation temperature, misfiring, stalling or hard starting. When you notice a decrease in power, acceleration and fuel economy and see lit Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light, the inspection on XLR piston ring, radiator, thermostat, thermostat gasket, air filter, oil filter, spark plug, and engine mount is urgent.
Second, suspension and steering failures are also what Cadillac XLR drivers feel troubled while driving. Suspension failure often results in uncomfortable and unsteady driving experience, moreover, it is also the culprit of a clunking noise when accelerating or braking, uneven tire wear, intense car vibration, loose steering when turning corners and poor handling. Therefore, you need to keep the XLR shock absorber, trailing arm and sway bar bushing in the right order. As for steering failure, once you find leaking power steering fluid, difficulty steering and low fluid levels, you should set out to inspect the working condition of XLR power steering reservoir and power steering hose.
