2013 Cadillac ATS Long-Term Road Test

2013 Cadillac ATS: Class Conscious

August 15, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

Pulling into the valet lane at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas I found myself behind a Rolls Royce Phantom with a license plate "Wynn 3." I was suddenly relieved I wasn't driving my 2001 Nissan Sentra with faded paint on the driver's side door as I had planned. Instead, I handed the keys to our 2013 Cadillac ATS to the valet who respectfully addressed me as "Mr. Reed."

I've never been a fan of the Cadillac's looks until now. Somehow, in the context of Las Vegas, it fit right in, like a fine, but not ostentatious, piece of jewelry.

Few people who matter regard Cadillacs as legitimate luxury cars. If you're looking for valet-idation, aim higher and far, far away from Detroit.
