2013 Cadillac ATS: 5,000+ Miles

March 11, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

Our long-term 2013 Cadillac ATS has passed the 5,000-mile mark. Actually, it did this a little while ago but we missed the clickover photo.

We've been driving the 2013 North American Car of the Year for about four months now. We've experienced some electrical gremlins in the form of erroneous fault codes and inconsistent interior lighting but other than that the car has been treating us just fine.

What would you like to see us do with the Cadillac ATS over the next 15,000 miles?

    Not counting the fuel economy update it was nearly 3 weeks between updates. So more updates is all I ask for.

    ^"So more updates is all I ask for." Amen. I'm mostly interested in the ride/handling balance, interior quality, how well it does on road trips (noise level, seat comfort after multiple hours...), and a brief comparison to the 3.6L. I believe that you've already briefly touched on most of the above, so how about a nice, long, detailed trip up the West Coast?

  • Seriously i forgot you guys even had this. Is it really that uneventful that no one wants to talk about it?

    Car of the Year and few posts--yes--more about the driving experience. It could not possibly be an editors' choice vehicle if the mileage is not on track for the 20K annual mark. I know it's not the SLS or 911 or Tesla, FR-S, BRZ or even the CR-V. Wow typing that out just dizzies you with the alphabet soup of car names.

    Load the ATS with baby car seats and go shopping. After that, write about some blasts on twisty roads, and an autocross and track day. This chassis promises to be both sports car and family hauler, so let's see!
