    top broken

    Does anyone else have this problem consistently, My top has malfunctioned twice since 8000 miles...thats horrible as I am scared to drop it in public and get embarrassed that it wont go down or up all the way, it gets jammed half way going down or doesnt secure when up....

    These tops better be under warranty, Does anyone jnow what the lemon law is like in VA, what do you need to do? how long before you can claim it as a lemon? do you need a lawyer? I am tired of this crap, I used to drop my top 10 times a day with no worries with my lexus sc430 and this car cost 20k more than that, and as far as dealer attitude nevermind that, I called to schedule a drop off and he told me to bring it in in 1.5 weeks

    Thanks for any feedback

    Read your state law on the issue. Google "lemon laws". You do have to give the dealer a few opportunities to fix it before it applies and there are mileage limitations. Insome states it only applies to new cars.

    OK, now I understand, hope your dealer get it done for you. Almost a year and no problems with mine.

    I would think they would be able to fix this. Sometimes the dealer is just lazy, so if the one you took it to won't fix it, try another.

    My mother owns and XLR, and has had zero problems with it. It's an amazing car.

    Hi XLR23,
    OK, if not in the public than do it in your garage. Do it at least 10 times up and downs, if this works without any problems - NO MORE PROBLEMS!!!!

    I would demand to find out just what exactly "recalibration" meant with a detailed work order of what was done, otherwise I call *cough* bullshit *cough*

    Man if you cant drop the top on your 75k Caddy beauty in public than what the hell is the point. Make sure that sucker works.
