    The motor had a ticking sound to it wasnt a normal sound so now they are replacing the motor instead of giving me a NEW car..

    No shi)twhen i asked for a NEW vehicle they should have givin me one but i guess buying 6 cars from them doesnt mean a thing. I am really thinking i made a mistake and should have spent a couple more bucks and baught a Ferrari.. The ticking noise didn't sound right o ya the motor still hasnt been shipped.

    Re: Just purchased a XLR-V

    They're installing a new motor over a ticking noise. That seems fine to me. On a cheaper car they'd probably attempt to fix the noise. The noise doesn't seem to affect the function of the vehicle. So all in all a new motor seems like a perfectly fair deal to me. Then again I'm just a regular poor person so perhaps my opinion has no merit when you're talking 100k cars. I personally think it'd take a lot of nerve to demand a new car over a noise.

    Its my understanding that GM has requested that there be no repairs to the XLR-V engine... only swap outs so GM can see first hand what went wrong with the engines.

    Yes exactly they said do not touch the engine we will just swap it out because the main cadillac place wants to see whats up with it.

    I'm actually aware of that, and it's perfectly fine with me. I said on a cheaper car they wouldn't bother with that kind of stuff.

    With a Ferrari you'd be removing the engine anyway for a 20k tuneup.
