2005 Cadillac XLR User Reviews
- Many safety features! Lots of storage for a 2 seater.
- It attracts ALOT of attention
Purchased As Used
I had driven many different styles of convertibles. The XLR has fewer blind spots, much more storage inside and trunk space, and many safety features. It makes driving a pleasurable experience. You have to be prepared to be stared at because the lines on the car are beautiful. I put 22" Chromes on my black XLR - Stunning!!...read morehide

- NICE CAR LOOKS GREAT AND SHARP
- RATHER BUY A BMW 645CI OR A MERCEDES SL500 BETTER IF PRICED AROUND 45G NOT WORTH 75G
CAR IS NICE BUT THE SHOULD MAKE SOME ENGINE CHANGES IF THEY SELL IT FOR THET PRICE. THEY SHOULD MAKE IT 550 HORSES OR BETTER

- Unique design, easy to get in and out of, comfort, bulletproof Cadillac reliability,
- Junky looking fit and finish,price is to close to MB 500SL which is a far superior car
Another Allante, Cadillac should have priced this car at around $60,000 if they were serious about selling it. For a few cents more you can buy a MB 500SL which is a far more substantial car. The Allante in it's last years was at least 40% less in price than the 500SL. The XLR is a very attractive,unique car, and hopefully this will signal better things from Cadillac, but GM needs to get real on the price of this car. This XLR, like all Cadillacs made since 1938 is a piece of costume jewelry on four wheels not a super engineered car like the V-12 or V-16 Cadillacs of the 1920's & 30's, or the European imports of today. Someone who may have looked at a $50,000 Corvette roadster may have chosen this car and paid a little more to have a more adult sports car. Another problem is Cadillacs are overwhelmingly owned by the elderly. Medium age of the average new Cadillac buyer is 63 according to GM and the XLR is no different. I am 40 and feel strange sometimes driving mine around. I bought my XLR when it was a year old for only $61,000 which a true gauge of what this car's NEW sticker price should be. In the end it will probably not last in the marketplace long unless the price is lowered. Like the Allante it sold well for the first year or two then interest began to want. Cadillac is simply no match for MB, BMW, Jaguar etc. when it comes to younger buyers. PS. I LOVED THE ALLANTE & THIS XLR & NOW OWN BOTH, but I do not consider myself a typical Cadillac owner....read morehide

- Nice looking design
- Too heavy!
Better off looking at a Mercedes SLK 55 AMG, much cheaper and much better performance!
only 56k as opposed to 72k
355bhp vs 320bhp
Both convertible hard top.

- This car is very non-expensive in gas and you get great gas meilage
- The ride is so smoth! You don't even notice your in a car if you close your eyes.
Wow!! This car is wonderful. I recently got one for a retirement present and i love it. Its so beautiful it makes people look twice at least!! It has enough horsepower 320 isn't bad but, I don't think that you would need anymore unless your gonna race it. But, it is a little bit small in the inside if you carry a big purpse thats fine it fits my son's back pack fully loaded and it is comfortable, so if you are intersested in buying one then for sure go for it you wont reget it......read morehide
