2016 Cadillac ATS Sedan Luxury 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
When I got the got a few months ago, I was more excited about the electronics than the feel of the car. A few weeks into driving I discovered how erratic the transmission shifting was--you can actually feel the car going into gear and ,in some instances, the engine downshifts, which I consider unsafe. Even with disabling the "stop engine" mode, you can feel the noticeable changes in shifting. It is an unsatisfactory ride and I have owned or leased over 40 GM cars.
2016 Cadillac ATS Sedan Standard 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 8A)
Since I just learned that the 2.5L engine will not be used in 2017, I will change my review to the following:
Honestly, I bought this car because it is a four door with "rear wheel drive" and handling is good. The price was greatly discounted on the ATS base model so I decided to purchase it rather than a Chevy Malibu. If the Chevy Malibu was rear wheel drive, I would have purchased one of those. The other reason for buying the ATS, is that my wife did not want a larger car than this. I preferred to buy a Dodge Charger or Chrysler 300, but what can you do. Happy wife, happy life.
