Just bought a 2013 ATS 2.0T AWD about a month ago! What a phenomenal car!!!! The engine and chassis are a blast, very willing, smooth and energetic. The car begs to be pressed hard, it's difficult to drive slowly .
I have the 18" rims with 40 series tires, handles fine in the snow (don't forget to change it to the snow setting).
I don't understand the complaints on CUE, works very easily, all you have to know is that the metal "guide bar" is a guide bar and not the actual button, you need to press the black area above the guide bar with the PAD of your finger, not the tip. Works 100% every time when used properly. The voice activated controls work very easily as well & pairing to my iPhone was simple (vs. the multistep process in my wife's new Jeep Grand Cherokee).
As others have noted the back seat and trunk are small, but it's a small car, so it's to be expected.
Gas mileage falls short of the 20/30, but I've read in several places that after the first oil change things should improve.
Radio reception is fine in my car, not sure what the complaints are about on this forum, of course it could just be that guy that keeps whining via threatening class action lawsuits and writing in caps....
This is NOT the old, cushy Cadillac of 20 years ago. It is a drivers car, so if you are looking for a soft, cushy ride you need to look elsewhere.
Awesome car all around, I look forward to any chance to drive it!!!!!
And nice touch GM with the 110 years of Cadillac history book, it was unexpected!!!!!
I couldn't agree more with Blackats, I just got my ATS Premium 3.6 AWD Black Raven and what a car it is! This vehicle is quick! I too don't see the issues with the CUE. I get in the vehicle and my phone pairs & functions flawlessly. This is a very exciting car to drive. The ride is awesome! The AWD works perfectly. If I had any complaints (which I don't) it would be about the lack of an option for cooled seats. Other than that, I struggle to find a better car out there for me. I also was surprised to receive my history book. Very Nice!
Proud to be a Cadillac owner!
I currently have the 2013 ATS 2.0T. I have been dealing with the dealers and GM for the past year with an issue that I should not be experiencing with a new car and have some more information that I would like to share and if possible get some feed back.
When the car is at a stop and no matter what the transmission is in, it be park, Drive, manual, it has a ruff idle. I could only explain this as being on some sort of a roller coaster or feeling like your in a truck which I would expect. It bucks and sways as if it feels its going to die and before the first update it did while I was driving and second time at a light.
I have been to 2 dealers with this issue and have had 2 updates, mounts replaced and who knows what else they have done with no luck. they also were kind enough to give me a fuel cleaner additive but really, need this on a new car? I only buy gas from know names such as Shell, Chevron and mobile to no avail thinking it might be because of that.
It appears that they want to do a sensor test or some kind of diagnostic on the car where I have to press a button every time it happens but have explained that the issue is always happening at idle.
I have had multiple people sit in the car as well and they have noticed it as well.
Now after all the loaners, it is an issue only with the 2.0T. The 3 and any other Cadillac does not have this issue. I also received a 2014 2.0T that had it but it was very faint. guess because it only had 300 or so miles on it.
This is besides all the rest of the minor issues experiencing suck as double vision displays, power steering going out, Radio turns off and back on by itself and just the other day almost did not start.
Chase from Edmunds has been a big help in contacting Jason K. who did the extended road test and noticed it as well.
At this point I think GM thinks I just want out of the car. This could be further from the truth. I made a decision to get an American car. I was planning on buying the car for my mother to enjoy and picking up another Cadillac for myself.
To add to that they have made me feel like I am at fault. This has definitely made me reconsider my next purchase. I know to many people that ask me recommendations for cars and wish I had better news for them.
So for those that have the 2.0T, let me know if you have an idle issue.
Is anyone having engine problems? I got a 2013 ats less than a week ago the check engine light came on and it started smoking I called on star they said to get it to a dealership ASAP i only have 600 miles on this car..this incident is going to appear on my car fax which is not good..I don't want this car..does anyone know if there is something I can do to get a new car? I've read other blogs ppl saying the same problem with engine resulting engine being rebuilt :/ this is my 3rd Cadillac only one has been a great vehicle I'm starting to rethink my next purchase not happy
Over 3,000 trouble free miles on my 2.0T, smooth idle, no smoking, just a pleasure to own. Sorry to hear you are having issue jvf and amiic. It's such a great car, give Cadillac a chance to fix them. All cars have issues, I know many people BMW's with cracked engine blocks, Toyota's needing complete engine rebuilds due to sludge buildups that Toyota refuses to acknowledge, etc.
