The cheapest XLR V I see there is about $35k. But that one has about 70,000 miles. Several are between $45-70k.It's a very nice car but no I wouldn't pay that kind of money, even with such a low odometer reading. They only want twice what it's probably worth.
It's a little high but I think someone whole really wants an extremely low mile XLR-V might pay it.It’s going to be worth more in that time, even factoring the inflation. Very rare car. This, the V wagons ELR’s and the Blackwings. Get them when you still can
They're becoming much too common.No thank you. Cadillac XLR is the worst modern Corvette ever made. To FenwickHockey65's point: with enough patience, one can purchase the best modern Corvette ever made - the C8 - for about $70k.
Interesting read. What a pee poor design.Yep...
Some bad designs are noticeable right away, their poorly-considered executions slap you in the face like a slice of wet ham. Others are more insidious, with problems lurking stealthily under the surface. The Cadillac XLR’s taillights are an example of this latter group, and they’re causing the...jalopnik.com
It was an expensive car when new, so only a fool should expect it to be cheap to fix.
It's still a GM car though. Even parts that cross reference with other models are expensive just because it's "XLR" but it shouldnt be that way.It was an expensive car when new, so only a fool should expect it to be cheap to fix.
If you can't afford to pay, then don't play.
The taillights are valuable enough that they're being remanufactured, so it's not like you can't get them.
This is a canary in a coal mine. All of these fancy LEDs are future $$$ nightmares.
Yup. And the taillamp isn't the only aspect of Cadillac XLR to "show actual contempt for owners by the engineers who designed them", as mentioned in the Jalopnik article that sdotjeezy shared in post #13.Interesting read. What a pee poor design.
Reason #1 why I'd never touch a CT6 even though it can be had for under 40It's still a GM car though. Even parts that cross reference with other models are expensive just because it's "XLR" but it shouldnt be that way.
At this point, I'm never buying a GM car that has less than a 100k model run. Just way too much of a pain to get any type of part when they're over 6 years old.
Exactly. I looked into purchasing a used one. Parts are a disaster. Just look at owners forums. And the folding top is another nightmare. And then there's always the Northstar stuff.
Historical context is necessary to make an evaluation of old cars.Those things are pulling decent money on Bring A Trailer and I have no idea why. Not particularly fast, and although improved in supercharged version it's still got the PITA Northstar under the hood. A C6 ZR1 is in the same price ballpark and you'd have to be insane to take a V over that car.
