2005 Cadillac XLR 2 Dr STD Convertible Review
Cadillac Body On A Corvette, Whats Not To Like? — My first week of ownership I was invited to show at local car shows. Fantastic driving with plenty of power. The downside is the cost of parts. $850 for a tail light, $1250 for a head light or a fuel pump. $750 for front skid bars which have been replaced twice in the first 6 months. All in all, the car drives so well it is still worth it.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Great driving car! Rare model that really gets attention. Smooth and powerful. Has every electronic aid you can imagine including head up display and front & rear radar.
Cons: Car is very low, you must use care in driveways. GPS is hard to see during the day.
