2013 Cadillac ATS Sedan Standard 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
If unresponsiveness in Cadillac's CUE infotainment system has been a personal point of frustration, relief is on the way: an update to smooth things over is being worked on. CUE Design Manager Jeff Massimilla told Wired Magazine that the firm's received feedback regarding responsiveness, and they're working on "a modification that will be released sometime later this year." DONT BUY OR LEASE TILL ITS FIXED !
With the upgrade, the infotainment system will be more responsive and the touchscreen and capacitive buttons will provide haptic feedback more quickly. The Cadillac XTS and ATS are set to score the update, but there's still no exact date penciled in for the patch's arrival.
DONT BUY OR LEASE TILL ITS FIXED !
Though vehicles could suck down the update with a built-in data connection, the software will need to be installed by a Cadillac dealership instead. Not a fan of having lost knobs and dials to a touchscreen in the first place?
According to Cadillac VP of Marketing Don Butler, we'll see the likes of such analog controls complement the screen interface in the future. WHICH MEANS SOOOO MANY CUSTOMERS ARE COMPLAINING THEY ARE GOING TO PUT KNOBS FOR HEATING/AC AND RADIO BACK IN THE CAR IF THEY DONT NO BUYERS AND LOTS OF UNHAPPY NEW CUSTOMERS LIKE ME
CANT WAIT FOR THEM TO FIX POOR RADIO RECEPTION BAD ANTENNA SYSTEM
AND COME CLEAN ON THE TERRIBLE MPG PROBLEM ON TURBO ATS

2013 Cadillac ATS Sedan Standard 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
FINALLY! Cadillac and GM have made a car that not only competes with the Europeans but beats them hands down.
First let me say that I currently own a MB C300sport, and have owned a BMW 5 series and Lexus IS.
I looked at the BMW 1 and 3 Series, the Audi A4, and the MB C300 and nothing compare to the value you get with this car.
I was looking for an entry level luxury sedan for my wife and found this car to be superior than anything else in the marketplace.
I really wanted to buy the baby bummer, but just couldn't justify against what Cadillac was offering.
In years past I wouldn't even consider a Cadillac, but loved the new design so much I thought I'd give it a test drive...I was sold!

2013 Cadillac ATS Sedan Premium 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
After successive failures, it appears Cadillac has finally made a small car worth buying.
The level of effort involved in the design, creation, and testing of this car are evident upon first driving it - it feels surprisingly well built.
Were it not for the plush American cabin, you'd swear the VIN began with a telltale 'W.'
Performance-wise, the car shines.
The adjustable Magnetic Ride Control is brilliantly implemented, and one could wax poetic about the powertrain, braking...but let's face it.
This isn't going to the track - it's going to make a break in traffic much more enjoyable.
Spaciousness wasn't the intended result, so make your buddies drive separately!
