2013 Cadillac ATS: Oil Change Needed
December 11, 2013
Over a recent holiday weekend, I took our long-term 2013 Cadillac ATS up and down the state of California, to visit family in Temecula and Nevada City. About halfway through the 1,200-mile road trip, the "Change Engine Oil Soon" message lit up, so I investigated.
The oil life indicator on the ATS said oil life was still at 5 percent so I wasn't worried, but I checked the oil anyway.
The oil level was fine and while it was a bit dirty, it definitely didn't need an emergency roadside change. So I shut the hood and finished the road trip with a clean conscience. Now that the ATS is back at home in Los Angeles, we'll schedule our next service visit.
