2013 Cadillac ATS Sedan Standard 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased a new 2013 ats on memorial day 2013 , i am on my second one now.
the first one i had put 5509 miles on it the first 10 days i owned it. i took it back to the dealership in N.C and had a complaint that the steering wheel would get stuck while driving on the highway, they had the car for two weeks . could not find problem, did some computer updates as recommended from cadillac tech support. it continued to happen after they gave it back to me .finally had it towed back for the same problem. they gave me a new one, put 8700 miles on that one and i have an electrical problem center dash goes black. turns out there is a short in the radio and the ecm unit .


Best Features

there are no favorite features ,after owning two ats's in less than 6 months , i have nothing but problems with both of them. my dash went out again yesterday 02/21/14. was recalled for rough idle ,they did a computer update but still hasnt rectified the problem. usb ports in center glove box stopped working. had to get that fixed .


Worst Features

The only suggestion i can offer at this time, ater owning two ats's in less than 6 months , Go Back To The Drawing Board On This One. Not worth the money at all. Big head ache !!!!!

Review

I leased the 2013 ATS back in August 2013. After looking at the BMW 320i, Mercedes CLA, and Lexus IS250, I had fallen in love with the ATS when I test drove it. No, it's not the 2.0T or 3.6, but this little engine really is peppy once you step on the accelerator. The only complaint is that I never achieve the marketed MPG, I only get around 18 driving to and from work and school. Other than that, I LOVE this car!


Best Features

standard ipod connectivity, standard push button start.


Worst Features

make CUE standard on ALL models, as well as smart key access system. Maybe an 8-Speed auto to improve MPG?

Review

I have Cadillac ATS 2.5
4 cyl. that shakes, trembles during a routine stop lights during a stop. I have taken the vehicle to the dealer for software fix/updates but the problem is still there. . I"m very disappointed in this vehicle , in Cadillac and in GM. So much technology in the Cue, the radio but a vehicle that trembles and shakes is extremely annoying and gives The Cadillac ATS
a sour tastes. so far, NO fix yet, NO response from Cadillac or GM. i will re post if update.


Best Features

best feature is styling, Tires on Michelins, no road-noise.


Worst Features

The only improvement this vehicle need and it's a Big one is rough idle . Eventhogh this Cadillac ATS 2.5 is a 4 cylinder doesn't mean i should idle, vibrate on every stop light and stop sign.

Review

I have 2013 Cadillac with 800 miles. It trembles in idle during a red light for example .My dealer tried to fix with a software bulletin however it still has a minor trembling problem that is annoying and makes me wonder do i have a Cadillac or some cheap clunker. I can't believe that Cadillac is not aware or able to fix this flaw with the rough idle .This Cadillac Ats will not compete with Bmw , Audi with this problem. I think vehicle has awesome styling and does have a quiet ride but the trembling on idle give the whole car a bitter taste.


Best Features

Styling gets an A, , Car is quiet and gets an A , handling and Ride is great on the Michelins .and vehicle and gets an A on that. Vehicle is almost perfect except for rough idle during a red light and gets an F . Cadillac ... please fix this trembling idle during a stop at a red light.


Worst Features

Biggest flaw is trembling during a red light for example. This Flaw is annoying and makes no sense for any new vehicle to shake . A Software bulletin did not work to fix the problem. Advisor told me he has received many complaints on this idle matter.
