2008 Cadillac XLR BaseReview
Amazing. Sticks To The Rode. Feels Great. Blast To Drive!!! — 0 to 60 in 5.2 is true. Put your head on the head rest when you put the peddle down. Hard top convertible locks out street noise and auto up and down in less than 30 seconds. Large doors make getting in and out easy. and the 105" chassis makes it roomy.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Well priced for a an classic (no longer produced). only 15,000 XLR Cadillacs ever made. Nice to own something not everybody sees everyday. great ride with all the bells and whistles in a sports car. would not sell except I am going for a 2008 XLR-V ...cuz I can.
Cons: mileage is not the point on this car so 21 mph on open road and 16 mph in town is tops. steering a little less responsive than a Porsche Boxter of same caliber. Somebody over 6'4" might find roof line a bit low.

Cadillac Body On A Corvette, Whats Not To Like?
