2013 Cadillac ATS Long Term Road Test

2013 Cadillac ATS: 20,000 Miles

December 17, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

After almost exactly a year in our long-term test fleet, the 2013 Cadillac ATS has rolled over 20,000 miles. Since its last service, the ATS has developed a squeaky door panel and one of the door-handle approach lights has gone out, but it has had no major mechanical issues.

The service manual suggests that we have the oil changed and the tires rotated at 22,500 miles and since we know the car is due for an oil change, we'll likely have both services performed on the next visit to the dealer.

A year into our long-term road test, I still really enjoy the Cadillac. It may have cramped rear headroom and the CUE infotainment system is far from perfect. But it is comfortable and lively, and it looks good. Driving it has whetted my appetite for both the 2015 ATS Coupe and the ATS-V.
