Hi again all. I finally made the decision and purchased what I originally thought to be a problem car( gulp!) everything is now perfect (for today!). I drove the car a few hundred miles so far so good. The car still has full factory coverage until 4/01/08 the dealer gave me the $800+ major guard for the temporary inconvience. the car is 99 out of 100 in condition. just turned 19k mi yesterday. any comments would be helpful? thanks jim

The question is: What do you think about the warranty deal? I never had one on a used car before. I do a lot of the work myself but cant on this car. Jim F

One of the reasons why I purchased my '04 was because of the warranty. And I needed it because I had a problem with the top. When I brought it back to the dealer, my car went to the head of the line and they replaced the sensors for the top. Now, it works like it should and it gives me peace of mind!

Nice car. There is a rumor going around that some of the XLRs have a problem with hydraulic lines for the roof breaking. Might want to ask about that.

Is your warranty GMPP???? or aftermarket? 4 years plus how many miles? Just curious.

The warranty is a GMPP 4 years from june when I bought it. The owner was a Buick dealer and it was his wife car. When I wnet to get it the rear pump area was fully under water! I cancelled the deal he even had my ck. He got the car repaired at a caddie dealer and gave me the extra warranty as protection that it is ia good car or the option to walk away. I have now driven the car over 1000+ m i in the last 3 weeks and have personally cked everything top to bottom and found this car to be exceptional. Like they say so far so good. I still have till next march 31 under the free factory warranty too. Today I will be checking on the transfer of original warranty to get the paperwork and $50 sent in to get a free oil chage and ALL filters under the original factory warranty agreement. Jim
