2013 Cadillac ATS: Trim Issue

May 22, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

Our long-term Cadillac ATS has had a string of small issues lately. A couple of them were simple warnings from the on-board computer that something was wrong. In both cases, everything seemed fine to us, so it's hard to tell if the computer was acting up.

But as you can see, this latest trim issue is hard to miss. It's right there in the driver's line of sight. It's not exactly a huge issue, I snapped it back into place once already, but it's not the kind of thing you like to see in a relatively new luxury sedan.

We're going to wait and see if the first couple of warnings show up again before heading to the dealer. If they do, we'll get this panel secured a little better so it doesn't pop up again.
