    Hi,

    The only part of my local dealership I have been to is the parts department. Everyone there is very professional. I can't complain about anything except the price of the few parts I have purchased.

    The other side of the story is that the Car Salespeople have to deal with some customers who are not easy to deal with. They may get a little edgy after a few nasty customers in a row.

    I deal with the public and try not to let a bad experience with one customer affect how I interact with the next customer. Sometimes it is difficult.

    THEY TELL US AS SALES PEOPLE, THEY JUST WANT EVERY CAR TO BE THE BEST WITH NO PROBLEMS IN THE FIELD. I HAVE SEEN OR HEARD THE WAY THE GAS TANK FEEDS FROM ONE TANK TO THE OTHER MIGHT GIVE SOME PROBLEMS, WHICH THEY HAVE TAKEN CARE OF. GIVE A CALL IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS LES. 847-362-4100

Well its funny how salesman will try to steer you to what they perceive you can afford, most dealers i went to werent real happy about letting me drive their top models, so i got a check from my bank thats doing the loan for me. Its amazing how their attitudes changed when you show them a cashiers check for 80k. On a brighter note, Cadillac treated me very well. their salesman never talked down to me and they let me have the run of the place, driving whatever i wanted. MB/BMW was not the same
    I HAVE BEEN READING ALL THE SHORT NOTES ON HOW YOU HAVE BEEN TREATED GOING TO THE SHOWROOM,I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS WAY BECAUSE IF YOU ARE AT THEIR SHOWROOM, YOU DID NOT GO TO BUY FLOWERS. YOU WENT TO GET INFORMATION AND MAYBE BUY A CAR IF IT MEET YOUR NEEDS

    Yes LES!! My fine #1 CADILLAC MAN, I drove a CTS and the new SRX. they are finally listening to Cadillac people such as yourself what needs to be done to get the customer on the American Performance luxury side and not across the big pond in each direction. Yep i need to drive what i call a stout automobile, the X L R. I agree with you, Les. Its a change that had to be done and now they need to get the advertising more dramatic to come across to the public about Cadillac, instead of people driving around looking pretty,and bulls being chased by Esclades running over the Bull Crap they left on the country road. Come on now.The best Cadillac commerical is the Cadillac CAN-AM RACE CAR AND THEN POPS THE STS. Thats not bad.

    As I've been saying to my friends a lot lately: "Cadillac... is back!"

    Of course, I've only had to wait 20+ years.

    Thumbs down FYI, Just saw this posted in another forum

    "...well Lenny's XLR is back in the shop. Its been there almost since he got it.

    First the top would not work (bad relay),then it would not go in gear (replaced the rear or trans). Clunking coming from all wheels. Now when he starts it it sometimes misfires.

    The local dealer has offered to buy it back as a couresty.

    The reason for this post is so other XLR owners can compare notes and not be told by Cadillac that this is a rare case.

    ... Its ironic that Cadillac did not want the XLR. Compared to the Allante it seems to me they have a ways to go to be as good as my Allante *... "

    Name & email address withheld.

    I do NOT attest to the veracity of the quote above, I'm only posting it for your information. Its for you to file away as we hear from more new owners.

    OK - I was with you until the part about "Its ironic that Cadillac did not want the XLR.... " What does this mean?

    (Why do people withold their name and address? Excluding address I could see. Providing a name gives some credibility.)

    Ells
