2013 Cadillac ATS Long-Term Road Test

2013 Cadillac ATS: Searching for the CD Player

April 10, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

As I've stated before, my ancient iPod Touch has stopped communicating with most of our long-term cars. So, I brought some CDs with me this time. How 1990s of me.

But there was no obvious way to play them in our 2013 Cadillac ATS. I went searching for the CD player but found something else.

This secret pop-up compartment. Well, I guess it's not a secret if you own the car and drive it every day. But a passenger in the Cadillac would never notice it. Looks to me like this would be the logical place to put the CD player, no?

So, I resorted to reaching for the manual and found the CD player taking up a lot of room in the glove box.
