2013 Cadillac ATS: Chosen for Its Air-Conditioner

September 16, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

You've probably been hearing us whine about the hot weather here in L.A. For about three weeks each year, our temps rise into the 90s, and even higher in the inland counties.

Living in a beach community, our weather is usually mid-70s with a cool ocean breeze. But my air-conditionless house has been sweltering.

So, when I chose my car for the past weekend, I picked the 2013 Cadillac ATS solely based on its air-cooling abilities. GM knows how to make a rockin' air conditioner that an American can love. It blasts cold air with ease. Despite the fussiness of the CUE system, the A/C controls are front and center and easy to use.

Of course, the car has other benefits. But when you're hot, you're hot.
