2006 Cadillac XLR Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 032014


  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,340 miles


I bought this car from Massey Cadillac in Orlando, with only 27,900 miles, you would think very little would be wrong with this car at such low milege, but it had all sorts of problems and now has some new ones. When parking this car in my garage the very first time, the next morning when I pulled out there was oil all over the floor. I thought perhaps it was an oil filter not tight. Since I was over 250 miles from the dealer that stuck it to me on this one, I took it to a local Cadillac dealer to have it checked out. They informed me it was leaking in several places, lower crank case seals, cam magnets and housing seals, steering gear leaks, and water pump leaks, that the engine would need to be removed and taken apart and to fix all would cost about $8100.00. so of course I told them to go ahead and do it .Now keep in mind this car has less then 30,000 miles. Now more problems have shown up, brakes are pulsating, service engine soon light is on,adaptive cruise quit working, The thermostat is opening to fast and the purge canister is mal functioning. It is a very nice car and I really like it but all these problems have made it very expensive.

If this continues then this car and me will part company, Cadillac should be ashamed of these problems , with such low milege, I know it is 8 years old, I have had 15 year old Chevys with over 100,000 mile and never had these problems.
