Flat out best value in this segment
By tomfoolery2 on
Vehicle2013 Cadillac ATS Luxury 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
ReviewI was hesitant to check out the American manufacturers and disappointed in Lincoln for sure (Chrystler doesn't even compete here). However, this car stood out as a giant slayer.
I did exhaustive research and the ATS gives much more value per dollar than anything else out there. The equivalent German or Japanese cars cost significantly more. We're talking 20-30% more!
At first I wanted to use my new gem sparingly but the more I drive it the more I find myself making excuses to go for a spin.
Don't buy this car without the full CUE. Pony up and you won't regret it. Don't believe anyone who says CUE is unusable. I have had zero trouble.
Update: 2.5 years later and I still love the car. If I had to do it again I would go for the V6. I miss the torque. The car has still been stone cold reliable and Cadillac service is stellar. There have been minor weird issues like a dead remote/key battery, all quickly fixed for free by Cadillac. My only remaining curiosity will be the long term reliability. With 4 years 50,000 miles maintenance included and 10 year 100,000 mile power train warranty it might be a long time before you see that update!
And yes, I'm dying to upgrade to the ATS-V or CTS-V.
