    onbagz2002,
    these things happens on Ferrari`s, Maserati`s, Bugatti`s and Mercedes too and believe me it`s hard to get a new car out of them.

    I`m a German and a friend of mine bought a sl55 amg and after the 3. towing of his car he`s got a new one. It wasn`t the engine but the electrics and with the new one he`s got the same thing again.

    He sold it and picked up last saturday his new Vette Z06 but if the XLR V would be already available here in Germany he would have got one of these.

    I know trouble on a new car is allways a bad thing but I hope you have your V with the new engine back and it runs great.

    Re: Just purchased a XLR-V

    First off...I would have demanded a new car aswell if i had just bought an xlr v and it had the same problem.

    I had a similar prob recently

    Bought a porsche turbo s in dec, it had a huge problem with the holding the oil and the water inside the engine compartment, it would keep leaking over and over again and eventually something blew up.

    I demanded another new car also after taking it in 3-4 times which ruined my 4 week vacation. They did not budge but instead got me an new engine swap from germany. But to make it up they gave me a cayenne turbo to use while it was in for service so i was kinda satisfied.


    with expensive rare cars they usually wont give ya another one. If it really is bothering you, just dont drive the car at all and try to sell it as new or atleast at a good used price.

    Question Re: Just purchased a XLR-V

    You bought a car, it had a problem, and now they're fixing it for you...what's the problem? Is the rest of the car faulty now because the engine had a ticking noise? I'd assume not, so what makes you think you need a completely new car? I agree that it's BS the engine already has a problem, but it's the first year for the engine, on top of a new redesign of the Northstar (which is BS since it carried over all the Gen2 Northstar problems), and the engine is still on an exchange basis. It also sucks that you're out your new car for however long it takes to get the replacement engine, and I hope GM caters to you for it (because you deserve it), but the problem is being taken care of, no charge to you (I hope), so what is the problem?

    If you read the whole thread this is all what happened so far.

    Re: Just purchased a XLR-V

    I apoligize, as I didn't see that post for some reason. However, I've had XLR's that have had many more problems that I have fixed, and the customers are still happy. It's not the dealership's fault that the car has problems, though, as they aren't the ones that built the car. The only thing they/we can do is fix the problems as best as possible for you. FWIW, I haven't seen any problems like the ones you've described, besides one XLR that had a couple of broken top lines due to a misroute that was done at the factory...
